No matter how old we are, peer pressure can still have incredible influence over our lives. Our friends put pressure on us, and we do it back to them. It can be pressure to have a piece of cake when we're trying to eat better, pressure to stay out one more hour even though you have work the next day, or pressure to drink alcohol when you're trying to stay sober.
