You Have the Right to Refuse a Drink

righttorefusePeer pressure can feel overwhelming when you’re young and under the stress of school, social life, and impending adulthood. However, YOU are your own best friend. YOU can say “no” to anything you don’t feel comfortable doing. Don’t want to drink with your friends? Be up front about it and say “no”.

It’s hard to stand up for yourself, yes, but if your friends are real friends, they will respect your decisions and choices. We believe in you! Make wise choices and rethink the drink!!

Agree or Disagree

I keep up to date on the news about alcohol-related incidents and today I stumbled across an article about alcohol misuse headlining with this statement:

“Alcohol More Dangerous Than Drug Dealing or Gangs” ‘

It took me aback, but the article had sources and many well-founded statements. I think all drugs are dangerous and gang activity is typically violent and damaging. However, there is no doubt that alcohol is usually more easily accessible for minors than many other drugs. Alcohol can lead to a host of illnesses and can even result in death (even if from just one night of binge drinking). What are your thoughts?
