Michael Quinn started this petition to asda and

My name is Michael Quinn I am 27 years old and i am a recovering alcoholic. It has come to my attention that every major supermarket chain has alcohols pop up stands through out there stores. I personally avoid the alcohol isle due to me being in recovery and i strive every day to keep myself sober, so you can imagine how annoyed and anxious I was when I seen that a a major supermarket chains continue to have pop up alcohol stands. As an alcoholic It is a daily battle to stay sober so when I go to the shops I do not want to be seeing pop up alcohol stands through out the store. We live in a world we’re mental health is the hidden illness of our society and more and more people are suffering In silence and that major supermarket chains like Asda, Tesco, Morrison’s and Sainsbury’s just to name a few are not thinking about the impact you are having on people’s well being by allowing yourselves to provide pop up stands of alcohol with in there stores. In my support bubble we say to stay away from triggers. This is vital to staying sober for example not attending anything that would put you in a situation of being tempted to drink. Long term use of alcohol increases the risk of developing a long list of health conditions including breast cancer, oral cancers, heart disease, strokes and cirrhosis of the liver. Research shows that a high intake can also damage our mental health,impair memory skills and reduce fertility. It is reported that 68.6% of men over the age of 12 drink or have drank alcohol, it’s also reported that 62.9% of women have done also. The figure that is the most concerning for me is that 358,000 admissions to hospital in 2018/19 where the main reason was due to drinking alcohol 6% higher than 2017/18 and 19% higher than 2008/09. Please sign this petition as I am hoping that the more people are aware of this then supermarket chains will do something about it.

‘Change how alcohol is advertised today and let the new generation lead the way’
