so many teens these days are using drugs and alchohol. why is this? some reasons may be because of abuse in the house, or depression but the main reason may be peer presure. so many kids get involved in these things due to friends presuring them to do it or seeing their friends doing it and they think if they do it they will be cool. so many kids start doing drugs, drink or smoke around the ages of 11-14 . This is ruining so many lifes of kids because of making a stupid mistake. We need to help this problem because so many kids are taking the wrong turn some where along the road.
