    We agree that we don't let anyone make decisions for us, much less run our life, yeah. But part of my opinion is that peer pressure involves many different cases. It's not always marijuana, crack, meth, booze, etc. It can involve many other aspects: stealing, lying, cheating. You can be pressured into that one way or another, too.

    The point I was making was that everyone is pressured for one thing or another for one negative thing or another. It's part of life. It happens.

        Exactly. My point is that people try to do it, but ya gotta see through it and stop it before it ever becomes anything of concern. I'm not saying everyone gives in to it all the time, but it does come in many shapes and forms.

        Ehh, I'll stop hijacking the thread now.

          I don't really give in to peer pressure, because I wanna do some stuff and experiment. I only have one chance in high school, might as well have some fun.

                    Nope. I don't succumb to peer pressure. Well I do if it's on things I know that are minor and won't get in trouble for. I have a phobia of getting in trouble LOL. And I know better than be do drugs and stuff like that. I don't want to waste my life, my parents' time and money, and everything else.

                    I don't care if my rep gets ruined or anything, because I'm pretty well known to be one of the most popular and coolest guys because of my personality and my traits. I can easily rebuild a damage rep.

                    Peer pressure doesn't bother me at all. Nor does teasing or anything else derogatory or demeaning.

                      I've never done drugs from parties.

                      Can't say the same thing about other stuff though.

                        Great thread

                        I'm actually great with peer pressure and all that stuff.

                        I've been at parties and places and all kinds of stuff but I've never done a drug

                        Even some people ask me how I do it and some tell me that I'm great with that stuff and they wish they could say No like me

                        I just dont think drugs does anything good for me and I dont want to be a part of that and lead on to other drugs.

                        I have some buddies who do that stuff.
                        Its no big deal if others do it really but I wont

                          I've succumbed in the past



                          Peer pressure is about more than drugs, alcohol or smoking.

                          Maybe you spend more than you can afford to keep up with your friends, maybe you go out rather than having an early night even though you know better.

                          Even doing stuff you know you don't have time for, for family, friends or colleagues qualify as peer pressure.

                            I was always the one doing the pressuring....

                            "Hey kids....LOOOOK CANNNNNDYYYY"

                            Nah, I only put the sqeeze down on the elderly.









                            (Yes, I have been pressured. Some things I liked doing and other things I should not have done. However, it's typical...it's the way kids are at times and it's all part of growing up and learning to stand your ground....THAT is something I am not good at doing....but I'm working on it )
