He further emphasized upon the fact, how peer pressure acts as an important element which unknowingly and undoubtedly dumps a person into the entrapment of Drug Abuse and it's addiction throughout the course of his lecture. In which case, one must be vigilant at every critical stage of one's life to be able to derive correct decision at the right time and in the right manner which in turn, sprouts out of wisdom from within.
