Are your “friends” pressuring you to engage in unhealthy behavior?

Are those you call friends pressuring you into engaging in bad behavior? You’re not a long. Peer pressure can be one of the hardest things to combat when you’re trying to live any kind of healthy lifestyle. But you start avoiding alcohol or other drugs you’d previously been using? The peer pressure can dial up to eleven. We know you can be strong, though. And people who pressure you into unhealthy or unwanted behavior, aren’t your real friends. You should first try being honest with them and tell them your decision to avoid those drugs. Some might be supportive after hearing you out. Others may just continue pressuring you or laugh off your commitment as a joke. Stick to your convictions. Friends who pressure you constantly are not your real friends.
