    16 Phrases to Help You Say “No” To Peer Pressure

    Resisting temptation and peer pressure is a hard thing to do. Satan is always lurking around trying to snare God’s people. However, with the help of the Holy Spirit, you can be victorious over temptation. Here are a few phrases that you can use to say “NO” when peer pressure comes your way!

    1. “No.”
    2. “I’m not really into that kind of thing.”
    3. “It’s against my belief system.”
    4. “I’d rather do something else.”
    5. “I respect myself too much.”
    6. “I’m a leader and being a leader means not always following the crowd.”
    7. “God is the final authority and His Word says no.”
    8. “I don’t see anything good that could come out of that.”
    9. “Why don’t we try this [insert alternative activity] instead?”
    10. “I’m going to have to decline.”
    11. “I won’t do something that could hurt someone else or myself.”
    12. “Absolutely not!”
    13. “It doesn’t make sense to me, so I’m going to have to say no.”
    14. “I love myself too much for that.”
    15. “Please don’t ask me to do dangerous things.”
    16. “I love God too much to do that.”

    I’m proud of you for being a leader for God! Saying no to peers isn’t always easy and it takes a lot of courage. When you find yourself in a tempting situation, ask God for strength. Remind yourself:

    God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. (Psalms 46:1)
