According to the text about early and later matures. It mentions that Early-maturing girls are more likely to smoke, drink, struggle for earlier independence from their parents, and have older friends. I am an early maturer, and I feel the text is accurate as I did all those things when I was younger. It would be much different if I matured much later. I won't be used to smoking, drinking, etc as much as I am now. I will maybe try them now in college instead of high school.
