    Okay so two of my friends have been smoking weed for a while and today I essentially said look I'm going to have to tell someone because you're trying to get me to do it to and everytime I say no they just make fun of me and try again three or four days later. They just kept being all jokey about it so I went and said something to a member of staff at my school and they essentially said okay we'll take further action. Now both those friends and some of my other friends have decided they hate me because of what I've done and I just want to know, have I done the right thing?

    If they were friends then I personally wouldn't have told staff, especially now they're taking further action. In your position I'd have talked to them about it and made it clear that you have no desire in trying weed.

    Of course you have! Smoking weed is incredibly bad for your health. As well as preventing yourself from becoming involved you may have helped your friends. They'll thank you in the long fun. Well done for sticking up for yourself!

    Considering they were peer pressuring you into something you weren't comfortable with, then yes I think you did the right thing. Friends don't behave that way or make their "friends" feel bad for not doing exactly what they do. They weren't your friends to begin with. So if they hate you now, so be it. You dodged a bullet and you won't be a complete waster like they will most likely end up.

    I'll admit, I snitched on some people at school for smoking weed too :ninja:

    I'm glad they never found out it was me... :eek:
