Red Ribbon Week

October is National Substance Abuse Prevention month, also known as Drug Awareness month.  "Better choices now, better life later": Focusing on prevention of drug abuse can save individuals from the destructive paths in which drug dependence can lead.

Peer Pressure: direct influence that peers (friends, family, even strangers) have on each other.

Not all peer pressure is negative.  Having peers who are committed to doing well in school, doing their best in sports, and peers who are kind and loyal can influence you to build these qualities in yourself and can also influence you to be more goal-oriented!
