The article “Teen Drinking” by Sarah Benett was very well written in my opinion. Peer pressure is one of the biggest problems in high school. Teenagers feel that in order to fit in, they need to do what everyone else does. Whatever happened to being unique? A lot of times if someone says that they do not want to drink, there will be other people that do not want to either. It just takes one person to speak up. One sip probably will not affect anyone, but one sip might turn into another, and that sip might turn into another. The article “Teen Drinking” made it sound like if someone drinks they are going to become fat or are going to get into a car accident. This is not the case. No matter what anyone says, teenagers are still going to drink.
