This is D.A.R.E.: Drug Abuse Resistance Education. DARE helps me make smart choices and decisions. I have learned that I can walk away if someone offers a cigarette.
I have learned that smoking can be addicting because it has tar in it, and that smoking Marijuana is illegal in the U.S. I also learned that alcoholic beverages can make you lose brain cells. It is difficult to say no to our friends.
I have learned skills of getting out of risky smoking situations. I can give reasons, facts, use humor, or ignore the person offering the drug.
My commitment to make wise decisions is to never take any kind of drug that does bad things to your body. To protect my health, I will never take any kind of tobacco or beer. I shall accept no kind of drugs. This is what DARE taught me.
