Question by boycrazie: Essay help!!! How can one resist and help others resist the influences of substance use and abuse? ?
I am writing an essay on substance (alcohol and drug) abuse. I need to answer the question:
How do you resist the influence and what steps could you take to prevent another from using alcohol or drugs?
Can u PLEASE help!? :]

I have a few ideas already :
steps:
Say NO. Practice saying no beforehand
Only hang out with those who don’t drink or use drugs
Avoid relationships with those older than you
realize that they dont make you “cool”

Answer by chefsam
Writing this essay and becoming informed is a great way. Find out how drugs affect the human body, mind and relationships– short-term and long-run. Interview people who have been drug addicts or alcoholics
Interview health care professionals. Knowledge and information are great stimuli, with no harmful side effects. Good Luck.

    Take a look at this recent interesting essay;
    “Females that are on high schools sports teams have drastically decreased risk of drug use and pregnancy”

    There are other papers on this topic also.

    it appears that semi-supervised peer activities with a specific goal other than just fun have a great positive influence. This would include Band practice, sports teams, science clubs.
