Q: My friends are taking drugs and I feel under pressure to take them, but I donít want to. What can I do? A: It is really up to what you decide. Sometimes it is hard to say no to friends as you may be scared that they will laugh at you or start to leave you out. But it is your decision, for support on how to handle this, come in and talk. This sounds like a really difficult situation you are in. You are more than welcome to discuss your feelings with a Corner worker, and build your confidence in order to do what is right for you.
