If you tap on the person/people picture at the top of the thread, there is an Info icon, just an 'i', and in that page you can leave the conversation, hide alerts, etc...

You can only leave the conversation if everyone in the group is using an Apple product. When that is the case, your messages to the group will be on a blue background, as will the send message button in the box to type your reply. If those are green, someone is using a non-Apple device. In that case the only way to get yourself excluded is to ask (nicely or not nicely, up to you) for people to remove you from the group before replying again.

In either case, you should be able to hide alerts. But you're still receiving the text messages and being charged by your carrier for them.
