Resisting Peer Pressure
First, just say NO in a confident voice. Stand tall and look directly at them too.
Next, you may give reasons why you said no. You may say how it's harmful, unsafe, and illegal for teens.
Thirdly, use nonverbal behavior to match verbal behavior. Just don't get any ideas with alcohol. Fourth, avoid being in situations in which there will be pressure to drink alcohol. Just go to any alcohol-free activities and if there will be alcohol in some situation, don't go.
Fifth, avoid anyone who drink alcohol. Find friends who do not drink. Avoid anyone who is involved with alcohol like gang members.
Sixth, resist pressure into doing any illegal actions. Stay away from people who break the law.
Seventh, influence others to choose responsible behavior. For example, you can encourage those who pressure you to use alcohol to change their behavior, and you can encourage people who drink to stop by suggesting alcohol-free activities. Also if you any presence of a drinking problem, you can get them help by telling an adult or a trained counselor.
Lastly, just avoid being influenced by ads for alcohol. Realize that alcohol ads will try to convince you that drinking is "cool" and "fun". Also ads will pop up on the internet where young teens will notice, so be smart and avoid them. Also don't be stupid and where any clothing that displays beer logos or any alcohol beverages.
