It's called Peer pressure. Who you surround yourself with can make you or break you. Chose people who will push you forward and make you a better person, not the other way around. If they are true friends they will respect your position on this and your opinions. I would tell you to slowly get away from these people if you really want to live a good life and don't end up messed up like most of these teens these days. I was your age and I use to have more fun not drunk than those who are drunk, matter of fact, I saved them from so much trouble because I wasn't drunk.

Tell them to back off. True friends don't do that.

Its peer pressure I fell into it. A friend of mine was pressuring me into smoking so I did it and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was. Tell your friends why you don't drink if they understand then they are your friends

You should just say "no". Most of the time, they will look up to you. I may not have been pressured to do this, but I will try to help you. If they don't look up to you, tell a trusted adult. For example, your parents.

There are three ways that you can look at this. Peer pressure is a difficult thing to deal with especially as a teenager, and it can sometimes influence your adult life if you are not careful. So you've got two options. First you can simply tell the people who are being jerks to you at your school that you just do not want to drink. In other words, "It's my decision, and I'm sticking with it." Or you can choose the second option. You can tell them that due to your family history, you choose not to touch a drop of alcohol ever in your life. Or you can tell them that you choose not to drink because you don't like it, and because it's had a bad effect on your family too. I also talk more about peer pressure on my blog.
