  • 2. My Strategies for Saying NO At first, I thought that just saying no would be enough, no questions asked. But there are so many different situations that I could find myself in. A good friend told me of the R.E.A.L acronym, which gives strategies on how to say no in all situations. R-refuse! Say no to get your point across, no undecisive wavering E-explain! Say "I am not that type of person" A- Avoid! The best thing is to steer clear of alcohol parties L- Leave! If I find myself in a situation, I will just leave to avoid peer pressure or any temptations.
  • 3. Stay Educated An education is powerful. If I know the consequences of substance abuse, I am likely to avoid them. Some teenagers do not get necessary knowledge about drugs and alcohol, which can increase their chances of trying them and becoming addicted. If I am at a party, I know to never leave my drink unattended. My cousin made this mistake, for he ended up drinking his punch which was laced with LSD. It is way too easy for someone to put alcohol or a drug in a drink. I have learned from someone's mistakes, a valuable tool when experiencing highschool.
  • 4. Surround Myself with Like-Minded Friends Really a no-brainer. Teenagers spend a lot of time hanging out with their friends. My type of friend is a level-headed, humourous person who sets goals for themselves; A person who I know will never lead me down the wrong path.
