About Alcohol
Alcohol is an addictive substance found in beer, wine and spirits that causes drunkenness. (Not so fun fact) If too much alcohol is consumed it can cause many forms of cancer in the throat, mouth, tongue, and stomach. It can also cause heart disease, strokes, and many other deadly diseases.
Physical; Dizzy, lose sense of balance, reckless, nausea, feeling sick, memory loss or you could even fall into a coma
Mental/Emotional; You lose your sense of judgement and can make regrettable decisions
Social; Lose friends and reputation. More youth from ages 15-24 reported harmful effects on work or study due to own alcohol use than any other age group.
Spiritual; Tempts you to go against your values.

Solutions already achieved
-From 18 December 2013 a $10,000 fine was introduced if anyone advertised; free alcohol, discounts of 25 percent or more, or if the advert has special appeal to minors.
-The TV can only play one alcohol ad per hour however there are no restrictions on the amount of Anti-alcohol ads played.
The Issue
Alcohol ads are unintentionally appealing to the wrong audiences, even though there are laws that reduce television ads they are still seen by teens in many other forms such as billboards, sports sponsorships, the internet, newspapers, and more. This advertising is encouraging teens to drink alcohol which is not good for their personal health and wellbeing.
60% of 1053 think that alcohol advertising encourages teens to drink alcohol even when alcohol advertising is meant to be solely directed to adults.
