High-schooler Julian was invited by a couple of popular kids at his school to go to a party later that night. He said yes. He thought he was so cool!
Hey man, there's a party at the club tonight at 9. Wanna come with us?
Sure, I'd love to!
But later that night, at the party, one of the popular kids offered Julian a bottle of vodka, asking him to "take a swing" of it. Julian then had to think about what might happen to him if he got drunk.
There's free alcohol here, man! Wanna take a swing? It won't hurt!
But...my driver's license might get suspended!
Julian made the right decision. He stated clearly that he didn't want a drink and preferred to stay sober. He also made a valid excuse to get out of the situation fast. Wise choice, Julian!
No thanks, man. I wanna stay sober. It's late, anyway. I'm gonna head out.
