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.

    Very well said Beata Stasak. Makes me think of people saying "The devil made me do it!"

    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.
