Do some of your friends pressure you to drink? High School freshman Brian Simpson can relate

From the March 2008 issue of The Christian Science Journal

As we were going for a walk down my street, we began talking about parties and how nowadays, for it to be a good party you have to have alcohol. I told her that I really wanted to have a party at my house, but the one thing I was worried about was that I'd have to have alcohol for anyone to come. That's when Christian Science came up.

She asked me, "So, have you ever had a drink?"

I said, "No, actually, I haven't." I told her that it wasn't something I get into because of my religion, Christian Science.
