At the party: there was lots of smoking and alcohol and I didn't know anyone. I was really nervous.
I started talking to a random guy. He seemed cool and we had a nice conversation. When I learned he didn't smoke, I was relieved to find a like minded person.
Hey, do you smoke?
Me neither. Smoking is really bad for you, and super noticeable to your parents. It's definitely not worth getting in trouble for.
... but these are some pills that my mom uses. They're really great for relaxing your nerves and they'll definitely help you have more fun! You should try them.
I could take the pills with him, which would make me feel good, but on the other hand I didn't know what they were. I could decline the pills but keep talking to him; I would be avoiding the situation but he might keep pushing me. Or I could just walk away and find some other people to talk to.
This guy was trying to pressure me into taking the pills with him. I had always been taught that you shouldn't do something without first learning more about it.
Should I take the pills or not?
It would be super cool if you did this with me.
Using prescription drugs for something other than their intended purpose is against the law. Prescription drugs effect the brain, causing physical dependence and addiction. And overdose can lead to death.
Those people over there look like they're having fun, and they're not even smoking! Maybe I should go over and join them. This situation is making me feel really uncomfortable.
You know what, I'm good thanks. It was nice talking to you. Maybe I'll see you around.
I decided to just walk away. It was probably the safest and healthiest option and I wasn't putting myself in a situation where I would feel uncomfortable.
