Alcohol & Advertising- Health

 What adverts come to mind when I mention alcohol advertising: Promoting alcohol and prevention of alcohol.  

What events can you think of that are sponsored by alcohol brands?: Super Rugby Highlander- Speights, Warriors- Woodstock

How might exposure to alcohol advertising affect each aspect of well-being? Either directly or indirectly?

Mental & Emotional: 




  • It might make you want to go and buy the drinks that you see in the advertisement. 

  • It might make you change your mind about wanting to drink. 

  • If you decide to drink, it can have a negative impact on your physical health. 

  • It might make all your friends start talking about it negatively or positively.
