You’re smart—so we’ll skip the part where we pretend you don’t already know the facts about vaping, drinking, or getting high.
You understand the effects drugs and alcohol can have on your body;
you know what it’s like to feel pressured;
and, most importantly, you use what you know to make choices that feel good for you.
Vaping isn’t your thing? Don’t want to get high? Drinking isn’t for you?
Saying “no” is cool, too.
Most of the time, “No, that’s okay,” is all it takes if someone asks you to drink, vape, or get high and you don’t want to.
Seriously, that’s it.
The majority of people who ask genuinely don’t care if you do it, or if you don’t.
But—if you ever find yourself in a situation where someone is really making you feel uncomfortable about saying no, use the ideas on this page to stand strong and feel confident about your choice.
