With friends like these …

I think friends influence other friends all the time. If you are at a party, and you see your friends drinking, sometimes you are going to have a hard time saying “no” to a drink.

Since they’re your friends, they might think less of you.

Since they’re your friends, they might not think you’re cool.

Since they’re your friends, they might turn their backs on you.

The question I want to ask you: what kind of friends are those?
