  • Yea it is harmful

    Peer pressure is the phenomenon wherein we tend to get influenced by the lifestyles and the ways of thinking of our peers.
    The thoughts, behavior,tastes of fashion, television and other often seen have a deep impact on the living of the society. We tend to get influenced by the lifestyles of our peer group. The changing ways of life of our peers often force us to change our ways of looking at life and leading it. It’s a human tendency to do what the crowd does. Few have the courage to resist the peer pressure and be their own selves rather than being one among the lot. Peer pressure is bound to affect most of us, both, positively and negatively. The distinction between positive and negative peer pressure lies in a thoughtful analysis of the views of the masses. Following your peers blindly leaves a negative impact on your life while an analytical approach of looking at peer behavior can act positively. Let us look at the positive and negative effects of peer pressure.

    Negative Effects

    When you do not like a particular idea or when you have no inclination towards a particular field, it is obvious that you won't like to go by it. For sure, you won't like to go that way. But it is you peer group, which may compel you on doing something you hate. In such cases, there are chances that you won't do well in those things. Things you do not enjoy doing cannot fetch you success. You cannot emerge successful in something you have never liked doing. So, it is important that you do not lose happiness of your life by succumbing to peer pressure.

    Many a time, it so happens, that we are forced to lead a certain kind of lifestyle due to peer pressure. You may not like partying on every weekend, you may not like night outs with friends, you may hate drinking or smoking, but peer pressure may make you do all that you had never wished to. There are many teenagers who experience great pressure from their peer group that forces them to take to drinking. You may take to something as grave as drug use, and that too, only because of peer pressure. In such cases, being overly pressurized by you peers can be detrimental to your living. Some teenagers literally spoil their lives by giving in to peer pressure.

    Peer pressure can lead to a loss of individuality. Extreme peer pressure may lead you to follow what your peers feel right. Their pressure may compel you to go by everything they think right. You tend to blindly imitate the masses; you adopt their tastes of fashion, clothing, hair, music and general living. Peer pressure can actually lead you to lose you tastes of life and force yourself to begin liking what they like. Peer pressure is the human tendency to join the bandwagon, in which, the person loses his/her original way of looking at life.

  • Peer pressure is harmful and a bad thing!!!!!!!!!!

    Peer pressure is harmful for whether your friends are pressuring you to something good or bad no one should be pressured on something they don't want to do and so therefore peer pressure is a bad thing whether your being forced to do something good or bad. If your being pressured to do something tell your peer that 'No everyone has a right including me so stop'

  • Caution PEER PRESSURE ....!!!!

    If u don't feel comfartable in doing something and your friends force you into it , then people be alert.... It's often seen that bad influence will never show you the right path , it will only make obstacles in your way... You should better start telling them that " you are not thier servant " .

  • Peer Pressure is harmful

    These days, it's very hard for a student or young adult to make their own decisions regarding good/bad life choices due to them feeling the need for the input of their peers. Your peers may pressure you into doing something you would not normally do. For instance, imagine being a teenager (if you aren't already a teenager) and you don't want to do a certain drug. Your friends (depending on what kind of people they are) may pressure you so much that you finally give in and try it. And perhaps, because of those people you become an addict. Thanks to peer pressure, you could ruin your future, and it happens on a daily basis.

  • Peer Pressure: Just Walk Away!!! It's Harmful!!!

    I think peer pressure is harmful. It makes you do things you would have never done before, like taking drugs, drinking, smoking, and just being a rude person. If someone asks you to do something bad, just walk away from the person and say no! It isn't your fault if they aren't your friend anymore! It was their decision! I think that there aren't very many positives of peer pressure. I mean, they could force you to look at bad things, listen to bad things, and even do bad things! Just walk away!

  • Peer Pressure is very harmful

    Because it can lead you to very wrong tracks, and it can also cost you serious trouble. Peer Pressure makes you think in another persons mind, going along with peer pressure means the same thing as losing the significance of your brain. Peer pressure can be good but most of the time it revolves around bad things like drugs and alcohols.

  • Because it can lead you to the wrong tracks

    It can lead you to a wrong track because when you are peer pressured it is mostly for bad things, it may also be a good thing for advising a friend. When peer pressure they mostly do it around drugs. So are you saying drugs or anything around that is good.

  • Peer pressure is beneficial not harmful.

    Peer pressure is beneficial not harmful. People only think about the negative because of media and in everyday life a big percentage of people find the negative thing more interesting. Nobody's interested when good things happen, its when the bad things happen and the media gets straight to work, trying to get the situation as negative as possible. Yes, there are bad things about peer pressure such as your peers getting you to take drugs or to drink alcohol under aged. But that's about it. There are so many positives, to many I can't list them all. Peer pressure can get you trying new things, enjoying something you wouldn't of thought that you'd of enjoyed, help you learn from your mistakes and grow as a person. There are so many more. Just because you've read a magazine and it says something, or your friend is telling you something, check again. Search the web, ask others about what they've heard, because it's most likely your friend has got it from a source that has rarely any good things. A magazine on celebs for example. Media always shows the negative not te positive. It's time to prove to people that things aren't true and they shouldn't judge people or something from what they've read, because the chances are that these things weren't as worse as they seem to be. Peer pressure is beneficial NOT harmful!

  • Peer pressure is harmful

    Peer pressure is the influence that forces one to do what they do not like and acquire bad habits. Peer pressure compels us to adopt certain habits that can ruin our life . It is possible that you do not smoke or do not like partying every weekend . But peer pressure is very powerful . It can turn you from a non- smoker to a chain smoker . Many people drink against their will just because of peer pressure. Peer pressure can also make you a drug addict . Thus, i say peer pressure can just destroy and ruin your life. Its harmful.

  • You are with the wrong people.

    Peer pressure is marked as a bad thing every turn you take because we as humans have no interest in good things happening. No matter who you are, bad things interest you more than good things. Peer pressure is often marked as being forced to do something you do not agree with; something that goes against your sense of ethics. Common examples are "being forced into" having sexual relations with a person, doing "drugs" or drinking underage. Less common, but still pretty common are fashion trends or political views. How you classify a stereotype. Your feelings about a person. The majority of what has been said are examples of negative peer pressure, and yes there is more but drugs, drinking, etc, is rare.. You only hear about it the most because it is more interesting than what else I listed. The reason negative peer pressure happens is because humans are social beings and we want to belong. We do what we believe others want us to do, or what they ask us to do for acceptance. But no one is forcing you, it only feels so because it makes you uncomfortable or you read about someone "being forced" to do so. You want to be cool or popular or whatever it is called so you do dumb things for acceptance. Yes this all goes back to it seeming bad but i am getting to why most of you are wrong. Peer pressure is influence from a members peers. So the influence the people you are always around, give you. If you are around the wrong type of people, that will cause a negative influence. So it all depends on who you are around. IF you even read this far.... Are you ready for examples of positive peer pressure? -friends helping you with school work so you understand it better so you can pass. -parents teaching you to be kind to others -paying attention to whatever -etc. Every good thing your friends or family got you doing is examples of positive peer pressure. It is only bad if you allow it to be. An example of positive peer pressure i experienced is something i caused. A girl at my school cut, and smoked. I began to talk to her and try to see what was wrong. I found out but that is classified intel... Therefore i began to get her to go out with my friends and i to the movies and etc so she could take her mind off it for a while and get better. She does not cut, smoke, or anything else and when she feels like she is going to relapse we go do another fun activity. Sounds positive. But stories like so is not something humans care about. So that is why everyone thinks peer pressure is only a bad thing. If you believe my side of the debate is invalid, well i honestly dont care. Im 14. But im also correct.

  • It depends on youu

    It is up to you if it becomes a bad thing. If they are doing something you know is wrong but you do it anyway to be "cool" and what not, that is your fault. It honestly depends on the people you surround yourself with. If you are near the people with manners and who pay attention in class and obey rules, then it will rub off on you. Peer pressure is influence from a member's peers. So it is up to who you hang around. It is only a bad thing if you make it one

  • No peer pressure is not harmful its beneficial.

    We always blame the bad things first but why could we think about the positive thing. Peer pressure can never said to be bad.It helps to change our pesonality.Many people told that friends force us to do wrong things such as having drugs or alcohol.The first point against this can be said that those persons who force us to do wrong things knowing that we are not comfortable then they did not deserve to be call as friends.

  • Im on both sides

    Peer pressure makes u do better on grades. But in life, peer pressure makes us depressed and people then usually takes drugs and they eventually become unhealthy. But, since peer pressure is a everyday thing that happens, we shall learn to deal with it, and take advantage with it. Okay, im done .
