Tobacco Abuse



Date Rape Drug

Many teen women experience pressure to use alcohol and other drugs, including tobacco. There are two different ways these pressures are felt. From inside you and outside you. From outside are friends, media and family. From inside are stresses that you are feeling overwhelmed by. There are many messages that come with these pressures too. Messages like: Don't be a wimp! Try it, you'll like it. It will help you lose weight.
