Bad influences are every where. They even happen to the best of us. Teenagers are in danger the most. I would know I am a teenager. Teenagers in high school and college are tempted with drugs, alcohol, cheating on tests and quizzes, skipping school, and more. Whether its friends, teachers, siblings, or parents we're tempted to do things that are wrong. Even if it's just stealing a cookie when you're told you can't have one it's still wrong. How do you avoid bad influences? There are a few ways. You can simply say no, you can ignore the person trying to get you to do bad things, you can walk away, and you can stop hanging out with the bad influence. I know it's hard to tell a friend no or to ignore a friend or even stop hanging out with a friend. Even if it is your best friend bad influences are bad influences and you can't give in to them.

You don't want to hurt yourself or the people that mean most to you. So keep saying no to temptation and check in next time on Inside the Drama.
