I Don't know Mary Jane, We could get in trouble and I don't really want to miss class.
Let's skip biology class to go outside and smoke John!
Assess the Situation
Mary Jane really wants to get high, but I don't feel comfortable doing it. I really like Mary Jane, and I want to be friends with her so badly, but I don't know if it is worth the cost of smoking and having the chance of getting in trouble.
80 Years Later...
There are three options here. could either smoke with Mary Jane, stay in school and don't smoke, or try to convince her to not smoke, and if it doesn't work I can stay in school.
Consider the Consequences & Decide and Act
I am going to try and convince Mary Jane to stop smoking, and if it doesn't work, then I will not smoke with her.
This way there is still a chance that Mary Jane will like me, I won't get in trouble, and I can stay in school. However, if Mary Jane doesn't like me trying to convince her to stop smoking, she could get even more mad and never want to be my friend again. Also, I really don't want to lose her because she is my best friend. By going with this decision, I am risking a friendship, and it could be dangerous if she gets mad.
Please don't smoke, Mary Jane. You will get in trouble and you will die earlier from it.
Fine, but if I don't like not smoking I am going back to it.
I am so glad that you stopped smoking because now we are old and we can still live together.
Yes, you made the safest and best decision, and I am so glad you didn't leave me!
