Wow, this sleepover's going great! Nothing could make it better
Actually, I found my parent's stash of alcohol. They're not home right now, so we can get away with it. Want to try some?
Hm, looks like I can join my friend in underage drinking, only try a little bit of alcohol, or not drink at all.
Drinking alcohol is also not allowed in my religion. I could not drink, and follow my religion. In addition, I wouldn't risk my health if I didn't drink. But if I didn't, my friend could have a lesser opinion of me. My religious beliefs could be influencing my choice to drink.
If I drink with my friend, alcohol could possibly damage my brain function since I'm still a teen. Despite this, I could gain popularity. However, my wishes to be her friend could be influencing my decision.
If I only tried some, I could still be pressured to drink more. Alcohol is made from the fermentation of grains, fruits, or vegetables, so it doesn't sound bad but if I drink too much I could die from alcohol poisoning. Drinking a little could still have me gain popularity.
The best choice is to not drink. To not upset my friend, I can also give an excuse.
This is the best decision because alcohol can impact your life in many ways, including liver damage.
Thanks for the offer, but I won't drink because my religion prohibits it.
I'm glad we agree! It's good we won't risk weakening our immune systems, like we would if we drank!
I actually think your decision was the right one. I was only offering because I believed drinking would let us be better friends. Not drinking avoids the negative risks of alcohol, and I know following your religion is important to you so this is a good choice to make.
