Friends

Friends. Everyone has them and everyone needs them. They’re there with you through the good and bad times. We’re saying ‘Yay!’ to friendship!

Soooooooo Phil in the Club is kind of exactly how you’d imagine: it doesn’t feel right and his dancing really doesn’t feel right and so you might wonder why he was there in the first place…

Basically, sometimes you want to see your friends. But your friends want to go out, so you end up in the club. The club isn’t necessarily a bad thing BUT the pressures that are associated with the club can be – like drinking. If you’re feeling peer pressure because you have friends drinking when you’re out, or when everyone’s pre-drinking before going out (it might even be your first time drinking!) then there are ways to avoid it. The best possible outcome is that your real friends accept the fact you might not want to drink however there may be other people in the group who don’t accept this… so this is when it’s totally cool to tell a white lie and maybe make something up about allergies or medication (top tip: have one prepared so you sound really natural). You gotta do whatever it takes to get those frenemies out of your face, before you can do the smart thing and get those frenemies out of your life.

To sum up: the club doesn’t necessarily equal bad times if you’re with the right people (no matter how you dance!) but if you feel any drinking peer pressure that’s when you should bear Phil’s advice in mind.
