3 Ways To Deal With Alcohol Related Peer Pressure
Peer pressure is when friends try to make you do things you don't feel comfortable with
Remember, you are in control of your body and can choose what you do or don't do.
1. If you don't want to do drink, then don't
If you say ‘no’, real friends will accept and respect your decision.
2. If it makes you feel better, give them a reason
You could say that you don’t feel very well, you’ve got to be up early in the morning or that you don’t want a hangover the next day!
3. Use a decoy
Have a soft drink in your hand already so your friends presume you already have a drink.
