No matter how hard you try to avoid it, sometimes high school drama lands in your lap. Do you stay loyal to your best friend or go on a date with her ex? Do you take the pills a friend offers you to ease the stress? Choose your path wisely…
Your choices tell the world who you are. And as you will see, every choice you make can have a ripple effect which creates a whole new set of choices.

Every teen’s life is filled with pressure, some of it good, some of it bad. The task for all of us is to stand up to negative pressures, or influences. The more aware you are of the influences around you, the better prepared you will be to face them, including the pressure to use drugs, pills, and alcohol.
We’re not telling you how to live your life, but we are giving you another perspective and the latest facts. You need to make your own smart decisions. We want teens to live Above the Influence. See: http://www.abovetheinfluence.com/
