Why do we blame peer pressure as the cause of bad choices we make?


I find that we take the easy road and blame the situation, or the people around us for making bad decisions. We do not want to take responsibility for our actions - good, bad or indifferent.

    Thank you Paul Kuehn and yes I think that is the name of the game - so I don't know why more people don't make good choices.

    Thank you peeples for your comment. As far as the drug issue goes, I think alot of other things much deeper than peer pressure come into play.
