Peer pressure is one of the most common problems among teens
and it has an extraordinary impact on teenage life today.
If sometimes you don't give in to teenage pressure, you will
become an outcast or a ``chicken``. Most teens are pressured
by their peers. It takes one leader to bring a problem to a group
of teens. There are many types of peer pressures such as alcohol,
teenage sex, vandalism or stealing and drugs.
Many teenagers think that to have a good time, you need alcohol.
It takes one person to make alcohol sound fun. Many teens drink
alcohol not because they like it, but they feel the need to fit
Sex is another area where teens face peer pressure. Many times,
guys have sex at an early age because it makes them look more
mature. Girls, on the other hand, are pressured by their boyfriend
to engage in sexual intercourse before they are ready or know
Most of the time, vandalism or stealing may be associated with
drugs or alcohol. For example, break and entry can be linked
to teens looking for money to buy drugs or alcohol. Most of the
time, teens lose privileges because of such behaviour.
In addition to these other issues, I feel that drugs are one
of the most dangerous and powerful pressures facing teenagers
Peer pressure can not only effect the teenage years, it can
also effect young people's outlook on the future.
