Dear Bunky,

My friends are going to a party after Prom and I know they are going to be drinking. I want to hang out with them, but I don’t want to get in trouble for drinking. Is there any good solution to this problem?

Sincerely,

Sober Senior

 

Dear Sober Senior,

It is totally normal not to want to put your health and safety at risk by drinking, but if you really want to go to the party, you could still go and enjoy yourself without compromising your morals. You should definitely do what seems right for you, if you decide to go with your friends, avoid the peer pressure to drink and try to look out for your friends if they decide they want to. If you really feel uncomfortable going to this party, host your own! That way you can invite whoever you want, and you can keep any alcohol or other substances out.

Hopefully my advice helps!
