Should alcohol and tobacco advertisement be banned?
We may see alcohol and tobacco advertisements everywhere, on television, in newspaper, on street ads card etc. Alcohol ads usually create several feints to tell people that alcohol is good for people and induce people to drink.

These include nicotine, tar, and carbon monoxide, as well as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT. So I think alcohol and tobacco advertisement should be banned.

Doctors say that alcohol consumption, even in small amounts, dulls the brain. Long term drinking may result in malnutrition and serious diseases such as heart disease, stomach ulcer, hepatocirrhosis. Among young male people, there are lots of fat liver patients, most of whom are long term drinkers, perhaps one of your brothers is among them, we all have the experiences of trying our best to persuade them to give up drinking, but they refuse to admit their disease is related to alcohol for the ads don’t tell the harm. Another fatal harm of alcohol is drinking and driving. We have seen too many traffic accidents and shocked by the misery, a considerable part is caused by drinking and driving. The second illusion alcohol ads make is that alcohol makes you popular and successful. Many successful people become mouthpieces for some alcohol. People like to drink the alcohol due to the famous person’s charm. They want to be a successful person like the famous man .But things do not go along...
