Alcohol, Tobacco & Other Drugs

Alcohol, tobacco, and drugs seem to be everywhere – in movies, in songs, in our lives, people partying, drinking, and “having a good time.” We understand that people often feel pressured to fit in with others, and sometimes they can make decisions about drinking, smoking, and drugs that they wouldn’t have made without pressure from those around them. Smoking, drinking, and doing drugs can negatively affect your life and the lives of your loved ones, especially while your body and mind are still growing and developing.
