Don’t Get Drawn In By Ads!

This article says there’s a chance that alcohol ads can encourage teens to drink at earlier ages. If you’re a teen, do you feel that alcohol ads make you feel more tempted to drink? If you’re an adult, do you see your children or teenage acquaintances drinking more often after being exposed to television ads? Be in charge of your own behavior. Don’t let ads tempt you to drink or engage in other risky behaviors. Rethink the drink!
