As a teenager, I remember rolling my eyes every time mom lectured me, “Tell me who your friends are, and I’ll tell you who you are.”

Mom was right. We are the company we keep.

Early in my recovery I read, The healthier you become the healthier person you will attract. It was then I knew I had to stay away from barrooms, sports bars, happy hour, and all the above.


Today’s awareness quiz will test what we really know about our friends, and ourselves!


Question 1. Have you ever had a party and not served alcohol?



Question 2. List friends you know for sure would come to an open coffee-bar party and turn down the open booze-bar party.


Question 3. Do your friends make you feel good about you? If not, it’s time to build your self-esteem by surrounding yourself with people who respect themselves.

Don’t fool yourselves. Bad friends will destroy you (1 Corinthians 15:33 CEV).
