where do pressures come from
WHERE DO PRESSURES COME FROM???
  • The media (celebrities etc) – even though you don’t realize it those messages on TV and movies sneak into your brain
  • Friends and Peers-maybe the biggest pressure

Come up with two more places the pressures to drink or not drink can come from

Now that we know where the pressures come from we can learn to say no to them………

how to resist the pressures 5 ways
How to resist the pressures….5 ways:
  • 1. Avoid the situation-like don’t go to the party if you know alcohol will be there
  • 2. Say “NO”-your friends SHOULD respect that
  • 3. Suggest an alternative “Let’s go to the mall instead”
  • 4. Walk away or leave the situation
  • 5. Stand up and speak up! “I don’t want that drink and you know you shouldn’t drink it either it’s bad for you liver…”
other ways to say no and stay cool
Other ways to say no and stay cool:
  • I’m allergic
  • My (aunt,uncle,brother) is an alcoholic and after seeing them go to rehab and go through all that I just don’t want to go down that path myself
  • I have a game tomorrow
  • My mom would kill me
  • I am the designated driver
  • Make a joke out of it. If you can’t be serious and say no then be funny about it!!!! 
ms b s tricks
Ms.B’s tricks:
  • Water bottle trick
  • Apple juice trick
  • Pour it down the drain trick (in the bathroom)

Trip and spill the beer!!
