      Humor is always the best way. The saying, “Laughter is the best medicine”, has some truth to it. I’ve gotten out of lots of awkward moments, and social pressure by using humor and a buttload of sass. Not only does humor help you make friends and get out of bad situations, but you’d be surprised by what a smile can do for some people. In my experience, making someone laugh, maybe just a giggle, can brighten up their day when maybe they’ve fallen on hard times. Even with all of this though, you have to still be confident enough to say no, humor just makes it easier. 🙂

        Too right Superfruit and “Assertive Not Aggressive” is a great skill to learn whether it’s about drink… or other stuff…

      Make lots of internet friends, join a fandom perhaps! (BEWARE: the phandom. We’re an interesting bunch to say the least…) But in all seriousness, lots of schools have a plethora of clubs for different interests. I always suggest theatre, as it is extremely fun, a super easy way to make friends, and every time i join a cast or crew, we become more of a family than a group of friends, and i believe we all need something like that. 🙂

        Interesting advice on the Theatre groups, Ashley. The good thing about them is the’re always looking for people to get involved in lots of different ways. It doesn’t have to be acting if that’s not your thing.

        A lot of people might not like smokers at a party because of the dangers of second-hand smoke and the stink! It is up to the host to decide and sometimes smokers will not make the invite list. Most smokers probably start out thinking they will not get addicted.
