Peer Pressure

Sometimes, people don’t exactly know what to do or to say when their friends are persuading them to enter into a potentially dangerous situation. Peer pressure is one of the most common factors in addiction to drugs and alcohol. To combat peer pressure, one must first refuse nicely, but if his or her friends are putting up a fight, he or she should leave the area immediately and return to safety. If you do not want to do something that your friends are doing, it is more than alright to back out and just step aside. Trust me, it’s the safer thing to do.
