You are at a party with your friends. One of them produces a lighter and a tea bag. She rolls it like a cigarette and “smokes” it. Your other friends try it too and invite you to join them. You hesitate. “It’s just tea. It’s not like you’re smoking a real cigarette,” they say. Do you agree with them? How do you respond?

I would resist it at all costs. Yes, it is not a real cigarette, but it is "preparing" you for the real thing. I would probably leave this party.

To be honest, I would probably reply, "What kind of dumb idea is that? I don't care if it's not real tobacco, it's like holding your head over a fire and just breathing in the smoke like there's no tomorrow. C'mon guys, does that really make sense?"

You keep me steady when the sky is falling
And I'll keep steady after You,
I'll carry on when my strength is failing
Take heart cause You're with me
So let the stars drop,
Whatever comes I'll be ready
You keep me steady

~for KING & COUNTRY, Steady

tbh I would think 'no,' but...there are some of us out there...I'm actually kind of prone to peer pressure...I'm not quite sure what I would do. :unsure: I mean, I wouldn't really THINK 'oh, yeah, a tea bag. I really wanna smoke that' but I would think 'oh, um...well, I wonder what would happen...' or, I might be able to make it and say, 'no, thanks, you're still inhaling smoke either way.' Hopefully I would also be able to convince my friends to stop. I hope my friends or anyone else I meet would try to make me do that, though, and I pray that Jesus will help me to be stronger than I am.

My class is reading this book called Bryson City, anyway one of the older characters in the book frequently says, and I quote, "You stupid, son?" I dont know why but this situation reminds me of that. I would probably say that to lighten the mood, and then seriously tell them "no" and walk away like they tell u to do in those peer pressure talks. B)

Keep life real (You know what i mean)
