Saying “no” to alcohol and other drugs can be a lot easier (and more fun!) when you have the right friends around you. Make sure that whoever you hang out with, they’re supportive of your choice to avoid dangerous substances like alcohol, marijuana, and other drugs. Friends are people who support you in you living your best life. People who constantly encourage you to make bad decisions that can negatively affect your health are no good for you. Surround yourself with only your true friends and you’ll go far!
Do you have big goals for your life? Big changes you’d like to make? Big changes typically come from small changes over time. This week, if you’re trying to quit alcohol altogether an excellent way you could start would be to try a soda at the next party instead of a beer. Small changes lead to big changes in your life! You can do it! Rethink the drink this week.
There is a lot of talk going around about legalization of marijuana use in the United States. But do you really know the dangers of this substance? Educate yourself with these facts!
Let these graphics inspire you in your journey to a drug-free life! We hope that this week you can pursue positive experiences that help build you into the person you know you can be!
Do your friends support you in your drug-free lifestyle? If they are continuously behaving in ways that are difficult for you, you may want to consider new friends. It isn’t easy being the only one abstaining from drugs in a crowd. But it’s the RIGHT thing to do for your health, growing mind, and well-being. Find friends who are supportive of you in a healthy, drug-free lifestyle and support them in turn with their own pursuit of optimal health.
If you’re just now starting off a new school year, look at it as a fresh start to take charge of your life and your health. Choose a drug-free life in order to foster the best health and opportunities that you can. Use these graphics to encourage you!
