Refusal Skills

How to avoid risky situations and refuse alcohol during those times

Refusal Skills

The best plan is to avoid risky, "slippery" places. Slippery places are opportunities for you to drink or use
even if you believe your willpower will keep it from happening. For example, planning to go to your
favorite bar to shoot pool and drink soft drinks is a setup. Because the bar has many cues for you to
drink, it is a slippery place for you. Avoiding persons, places, and things that provide powerful cues is an
excellent strategy.
