Hey guys! Today's topic is about peer pressure. If you don't know what peer pressure is, it's when people try to get you to do something by influence, whether it's by teasing you or badgering you to do what they want you to do. The most common things that people can be peer pressured into doing is doing drugs and having sex. Unfortunately, there are people who give in to the peer pressure because they want to look cool in front of people or they just don't know how to stand up for themselves. I think the best way for people to not give into peer pressure is to distant themselves from the people who do it to them or stand up to them. Though it may not be easy because you don't want to seem lame, it's better to be lame than possibly getting in trouble for doing something that you didn't want to do in the first place. If people who you call your friends peer pressure you into doing something you don't want to do, just know that they aren't your friends.
