there should definitely be the same ban on ads for alcohol and it should be stigmatised just as much as smoking. <br />
I have yet to see/hear a case where someone who smoked one too many marlboroughs went home to beat up his wife and kids. Just saying. Living in london one sees just too much alcohol-related aggression to accept that stigma on smoking which is NOT applied to alcohol. <br />
I am a practically tee-total (averaging 2 drinks a month) smoker.
i don't know if i'd prefer alcoholics to be trapped in the house with their kids or turned loose on the rest of society.<br />
I'd prefer people just stopped drinking alcohol altogether and hit a bong instead.
maybe if they actually educated kids properly about their own bodies and minds in the first place then they might have a point
