there should definitely be the same ban on ads for alcohol and it should be stigmatised just as much as smoking.
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.
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.
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
