Prom is something you’re going to remember for the rest of your life; it’s the highlight of your high school career, and YOU make the choice on how you want to remember it. It should be a time when you are surrounded by friends, fun and dancing–an all-around celebration. You are graduating high school and moving on to college, leaving your longtime friends and entering the next big stage of your life. As you invest in YOU and your future, you have an opportunity to make important decisions and evaluate personal choices. Please consider choices that avoid underage drinking, prescription drug use, tobacco use, marijuana use and other drug use.
When alcohol and drugs become involved, prom can also be a dangerous time for teens. Alcohol and drug use can lead to other risky behaviors like driving under the influence, physical or emotional violence, sexual mistakes and accidental overdose. Prom should be a celebration that you remember forever–it should never end in tragedy.
It’s up to you to make healthy decisions this prom and celebrate without drugs or alcohol. When you look back at this memory years down the road, you’ll be proud of yourself and the positive choices you made.
Pledge to make healthy decisions this prom by tweeting to @LiveFreeFL and encourage your friends to do the same. Friends are the most powerful influence over other teens–make sure you are a positive one.
