Hey Niki, oh damn, hey I need to talk to you after school about something!
oh no, I don't want to do that but he's my boyfriend would he get offended?
hey Nikki I was wondering if you wanted to smoke some cigarettes with us I stole some from my dad he didn't even know!
NO!! I'm sorry but I do not want to do that to my body its really bad for you and you could get really sick and do permanent damage to your body and you shouldn't even be doing it either! But maybe we could do something else like we could go see a movie? or play a game?
No, we want to smoke are you coming?
It is extremely important to be assertive and smart when approached by a situation such as this and to be able to say no to protect yourself and others. Other ways of being assertive would to walk away, say no, or even tell then you do not want to do it and give a reason.
Because if you do not you could possibly become addicted to whatever drug was offered and could destroy your lungs and make you sick and get things such as cancer.
