Doing drugs having sex everywhere getting pregnant.

I would also watch how I dress and make sure it is not sending a message I’m really not trying to get over. Last but not least, I would watch my company I keep because hanging out with people who act on impulse puts me more at risk for victimization. Lifestyle theory suggests that people become crime victims because their lifestyle heightens their exposure to criminal offenders. Victimization risk is increased when you live a high-risk lifestyle- involving drinking, smoking, taking drugs, and getting involved in crime. Young men a usually targeted in this lifestyle because they tend to try to find recreational fun which can lead to underage drinking, hanging out late at night in bars where drunken fights often break out.
