Negative peer pressure in young adults is defined as The influence of a young man or woman's social setting that affect their decision making in a negative fashion, potentially affecting their overall way of life. Peer pressure is an inevitable part of life for everyone. As this issue is highly devastating in teenagers, it can also be just as strong of an influence shortly after one reaches adulthood, as young men and women who are therapeutically-troubled tend to have similar perceptions of that of an adolescent.

Negative peer pressure occurs when a person feels pressured to do something they know is unhealthy (physically or mentally), such as smoking, drinking, partaking in harmful drugs, stealing, neglecting responsibilities or other activities that affect their lives in a negative fashion. Young adults may be tempted to take part in harmful peer pressure because they are overly eager to be accepted by their peers. They are fearful of being looked down on and feel the need to participate in unethical behavior because "everyone else is doing it." Often times, negative peer pressure that one experiences as a troubled teenager will continue to affect them well into adulthood. If this has occurred in a struggling young person, the parent of the affected individual should seek immediate therapeutic assistance.
