Do you have supportive friends?

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!
