Every day, there are individuals who face an overwhelming amount of stress. And our peers are capable of adding to that pressure and exercise that right whenever they feel like it, no matter how annoying or panic-inducing it may be.

There are times when peer pressure is good and there are times when peer pressure is bad.

Obviously, the bad one type of peer pressure is when a group at a party coerces someone to drink alcohol or do drugs. Now, I will provide you, dear reader, with a list of peer pressure situations to say no to.

SAY NO TO THESE SITUATIONS

  1. “Come on, man! Let’s smoke some (insert drug here)!”
  2. “Let’s do some shots!” (<- that’s alcohol)
  3. “Let’s go jump off of a bridge/cliff/building!”
  4. “Let’s sneak into the gorilla enclosure at a zoo!” (Sorry Harambe)
  5. “Let’s go shoot something!”
  6. “Let’s get out dangerous weapons and mess around in the backyard!”
  7. “Let’s go lay on the railroad tracks!”
  8. “Let’s stand in the middle of a really dark road at night!”
  9. “Let’s go bully someone!”

JUST SAY NO, GUYS. DO NOT LET THEM (peers) CONVINCE YOU
THAT ANY OF THAT IS COOL.

*Spoiler: it’s not.

LIST OF THINGS IT IS PROBABLY OKAY TO AGREE TO. IF YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE.


  1. “Hey, let’s invite (insert name here) to our party!”
  2. “Let’s have a study session and actually study!”
  3. “Let’s go eat with that lonely person!”
  4. “Let’s start a go-fund-me to send Regina to a soccer game in Europe!” (Ahem, it seems specific, but it’d be really lovely.)
  5. “Let’s go save our friend from jumping off a cliff/bridge/building!”

There are undoubtedly many more, but those are just examples of good and bad peer pressure.

Go Jets!
Have a fun and safe Halloween!
