You Will Need
Think of consequences
Think about the consequences of doing what you're being urged to do. Are they good? Or are they bad?
Ask if consequences are worth it
Ask yourself if the consequences are worth it. Sure, you'll have the approval of your peers, but in the long run, who really cares if Susie thinks you're a "square"?
Say "no" confidently
Say "no" in a way that leaves no room for argument. "No." If you act confident and self-assured, your peers won't try to push you around.
Find new group of friends
If your peers consistently pressure you to do bad things, find a new group of friends! Join a club where you can meet people more like yourself.
Stay out of bad situations
Don't put yourself in situations where you know you'll be pressured to do things you don't want to. Remember, you're your own "cat."
