Comments:As a therapist who treats many adolescent patients with alcohol problems and as one who has done so for the last 27 years, I am keenly aware of how easily influenced our children are by what they see advertised on TV and in print - and what they think is "cool." I would like to see alcohol advertising limited in the most restrictive way possible and to have the actors/ models in the ads be clearly over the ago of 35. Our adolescents are already in grave danger as regards alcohol & other drug use....Irresponsible advertising threatens them all.
