That was a catchphrase for Nancy Reagan, trying to teach children how to stay away from drugs. It was short and memorable, and created a family story we laughed over for years.
|First lady, Nancy Reagan |
speaks at a “Just Say No” rally in
Los Angeles, California, 1987.
Notice that Nancy Reagan was also very slim. I think she must have practiced it in relation to food too.
Just say no to extra dessert, or second helpings, or to eating when you are not really hungry.
Just say no to the fat on the beef, the addictive caffeinated sodas, the candy in the candy bowl on your boss's desk.
Just say no to staying fat, lazy and unhealthy.
