Internal: You feel the need to fit in and be cool, you also are worried about missing class and getting in trouble with the school and your parents. You also know that smoking is bad for you.
Then you should: I- Identify influences
External: Your friends are pressuring you to do it saying that nothing bad will happen, or who cares if your parents get mad at you. They say smoking isn’t even bad.
After I you need to: D-Decide and take action
I decided to stay in class and tell my friends that we could go another time after school or during the weekend but only if there were no drugs involved. This was the best decision to make because there could be consequences from the school and my parents for skipping and if they found out I was doing drugs I could get into even more trouble.
I think it was a good decision because l feel good about myself for making the right decision and I will also feel less guilty because I suggested going a different time that will allow me to stay in school and avoid doing drugs I don’t want to do.
