Adolescence is a challenging time marked by crises of identification and disconnection. During this period, teenagers often imitate adults and look for role models while seeking to fit in with their peer groups. Substance abuse, such as smoking, alcohol, and drug use, can emerge as a result of these influences, leading to potential long-term consequences for adolescents’ emotional well-being and future plans. Encouraging a healthy understanding of substance use risks is crucial to support teenagers during this formative stage of life.
