You Don’t Have to Drink to Fit In

Summertime for students is nearing its end and as you’re heading back to school for the 2015/2016 school year, you may be anxious about peer pressure to drink alcohol. Don’t be. Stand up for your convictions, beliefs, and morals. If you’re uncomfortable drinking as a minor, accept yourself and proudly share your conviction with others. You don’t have to drink alcohol to fit in with your friends. If you feel the need to drink to fit in with a certain group of people, really think about whether or not you want friends who’ll pressure you into doing something you’re uncomfortable with. Real friends don’t pressure you to do things. Real friends support you as you give yourself your best chance at life.

As you prepare for the new school year, we encourage you to rethink the drink and avoid alcohol use as a minor. Not only will you be putting your health at an advantage, but you’ll also have clearer mental reasoning and be better able to study for important tests. Your life can be just as fun–if not more fun–without the alcohol.

You can do it!

Happy Friday, everyone! We hope that you have a safe, sober weekend! We have five reasons for you to stay committed to your sober lifestyle today — especially in the heat of summer when many people choose to engage in abusive alcohol habits:

>>1. Alcohol is dehydrating. — In the summer heat, it is of paramount importance to stay hydrated. Drink water, not alcohol!

>> 2. Alcohol poisoning is real and can be fatal. — At parties this summer, there may be an abundance of beer and other drinks. When you’re having a great time, it is easy to lose track of how many drinks you’ve had. Alcohol poisoning can set in and quickly lead to death if it isn’t caught early. Avoid the drinking altogether and stay safe!

>> 3. Alcohol is expensive. — Having a party with a well-stocked bar can significantly raise the price of your summer events. Just forego the booze and keep your parties alcohol-free to save tons of money (and potentially, lives).

>> 4. Drunk driving kills. — You may not be able to control the choices of other drivers, but you can avoid drunk driving and perhaps save a life. Drunk driving kills. Be vigilant and never allow friends to drive while intoxicated.

>> 5. Alcohol can lead to a variety of illnesses (many of which may become fatal). — To keep yourself in great summer-shape, avoid the alcohol. It can lead to weight gain, liver disease, multiple types of cancer, and more!

Stay fit and healthy this summer! Rethink the drink!
