Christmas adverts are now in swing. (Too early IMO). But we are inundated with alcohol adverts. Given the steps of Banning tobacco adverts. Should alcohol adverts also be banned?

No, I see no reason to ban alcoholic beverage ads. Smoking one cigarette/cigar imposes on all around those who indulge; moderate drinking does not. And clearly smoking is more addictive given that millions became so but relatively few discover they are alcoholic when they start trying alcohol. The two are not similar enough to be comparable and treated identically.
