Juniper Daze Designs

There are so many different Etsy shops that you can browse for pretty much anything, notebooks, stickers, planner essentials, what ever you can think of, there maybe someone who creates it. Recently I came across Juniper Daze Designs, an Etsy shop created by Steph Whyte from Juniper Daze. I follow Steph on Twitter and I absolutely LOVE her blog, so I jumped at the chance to have a look at her shop.

Are guys pressured into drinking more when with friends?

The percentage of men who drink is 64% whereas women is only 52%, why is there a 12% difference between the genders? Are guys getting pressured into drinking more when they are with their friends?

Speaking to some students in the city, they feel as if their friends sometimes do pressure them into drinking more than they would like to on a night out. Sam East, 19 says; “You don’t want to be seen to be the one who is not drinking and therefore being boring.” Sam isn’t alone in his thought, Oliver Norman, 25 feels like it is ‘almost rude and anti-social’ to decline drinks that have been brought by friends. Robert Styles, 19 says; “I simply say no when my friends try and pressure me to drink more than I wish to but I do think in most cases guys are pressured to drink so they can fit.”
