Kirke, Deirdre M (2006) Teenagers and substance use: social networks and peer influence. Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan .

This book describes how teenagers' peers influence their substance use. Looking at the notion of the 'chain reaction', the author concludes that teenagers' substance use result from the selection of peers, the patterning of peer ties and peer influence. Although there are other influences, such as family, relatives and other people, peers are the main influence who affect the substance use of teenagers.
