    DRINK DRINK AND MMUUCCHH M0RE DRINK!

    RIGHT, so here i am, 7.45 in the morning eating my crumpits and drinking my tea. Still sober!

    I'm watching tv and it's no wonder why we drink. Every single program on tv has people drinking in it, Just shoot me, frasier, will and grace, friends, heros, simpsons, all the soaps EVEN THE CARTOONS (for adults) It's on the adverts we watch, it's on bill boards, it's RIGHT at the checkout in most shops, it's in newspapers, magazine.... IT'S EVERYWHERE!
    When you watch tv or go out, just look around you. It's crazy! It really must effect us in ways we don't even know! It's almost like we're meant to drink everynight or when things are bad.I went for a walk yesterday and took notice and i was completely shocked and disgusted with how it's pushed in our faces! What good is all this advertising for our children and childrens children. All it says a drink responsibly.... UNREAL!

    ANYWAY, i was a bit shocked when i started to take notice.

    I hope EVERYONE has a happy sober day today!!! LOVE YOU ALL XXXXXX:l:l

    Tis true lil.michelle

    It is like smoking used to be, and they make it look like you are cool if you drink - and maybe you are, just not the way I drink when I go out.

    Alcohol advertising should be banned - In Australia our Indigenous people are pitiful, the majority just grog on with nowhere or nothing to do, so why advertise - because the Governement makes a sh*# load of money out of it, same as anything addictive - smoking, poker machines etc.

    It takes strength to abstain.

    o.k. back from town. Here is my little diary of my journey and the adverts saw relating to alc. I also metioned triggers.

    11.20 Start journey
    11.30 Get on bus
    11.31 Spar...4 stella ?3.49
    11.31 Local Pub
    11.32 Threshers...losts of adverts...Imperial Vodka ?8.99
    11.32 local shop...2 bottles of wine ?7
    11.40 enter town
    12.10 Wetherspoons...?1.60 pt house ale House wine ?7. Pubs everywhere.
    12.40 Buy paper. Article on which is the 'best' cheap wine to buy.
    12.50 Cans and bottles litter the bus station. Congregation of drinkers in bus station

    There wasnt really much advertising in town, but the journey there and back was full of them, and i passed at least 4 pubs.

    Nothing sticks it to the advertising department so much as to ignore it and not buy the product!! As hula girl mentioned, it's all about selling the relaxation, the social benefits, etc. Guess they wouldn't sell much if the picture on the billboard was a middle aged woman passed out on her couch!

    So very true, unfortunately AL is not the only bad habit they are pushing. Fast food, prescription meds....the list goes on. Hard to know what to believe, and how to tell our kids what they see is not the truth.
