I Break Bad Habits
“Those who spent their time looking for the faults in others usually make no time to correct their own.”
Throughout our lives, we are influenced by our peers. We are programmed to measure up to others we identify with. This can open up our mind, broaden our horizon and teach us valuable social skills.
But when it comes to substance use, our minds appear to be a little quirky.
We have conducted a research, asking people aged 55+ about their own behavior towards alcohol and medicine use and how they believed other people their age behaved. Our research shows that, when it comes to usage-behavior, we no longer use our peers to pull ourselves up and get the best out of ourselves. Instead, we tend to use them to justify our own behavior. And often, we do so based on misconceptions. Our campaign ‘I Break Bad Habits’ offers you an insight in what other people your age actual behavior towards alcohol and medicine intake is. Do you make your own decisions?
