People going through a stressful period in their life may value drinking alcohol more highly because it helps to alleviate their negative feelings. Drinking removes, at least temporarily, the stress of anxiety.

Peer Pressure

Peer pressure is one of the most prominent reasons for drinking among people of all categories. Being afraid that you might be isolated or discarded from a group of people and doing an activity. Teenagers especially are more vulnerable to being affected by this which can make them addicted as they are being pressurised to drink more than they want.

As an Act of Rebellion

Some drink alcohol to rebel. They want to defy the rules and show that they are different from all the others. This is often seen among youngsters especially teenagers who are in the process of growing up – the adolescence factor.
