Best Answer

When you are under the influence of friend, people you know, people, etc. telling you what to do or inciting you of what to do, pushing you to do something that you will not do unless influenced to do it because you will feel "cool", "apart of the friends", etc. In other words, your friends are telling you to do things you don't want to do/be e.g: take drugs & smoke this could put you in great danger. But you will do it because you do not want to look like a fool.
