Number one motive for youth and adults to use alcohol, drugs, porn, food, gambling, video games is ...
too much STRESS! An inability to cope with their feelings.

            Susie's definition of Peer Pressure

"Peer Opportunity coupled with 
Emotional Vulnerability" 

When a teen is exposed to or pushed to use alcohol or drugs by friends - that is their moment of peer opportunity
When a teen feels neglected, rejected, unloved, unwanted or alone - that creates the emotional vulnerability that makes them say YES.  
  "Peer Pressure - Will Your Child Succumb to It?"
