How Do You Avoid Drugs and Still Be Cool at Parties?

When alcohol and drugs are readily available at parties, you may feel peer pressure to use them as a way to fit in. Here are some tips on staying safe when you party:

  • Find friends who don't need drugs to party.
  • Check out who'll be at a party and what the plans are before you commit to something that may turn out to be an awkward situation for you.
  • Know the facts about drugs.
  • Stop to think before you make decisions that you might regret.

The cool crowds are the people who appreciate you for who you are, not for what you do or don’t do.
