Mandy Perkins started this petition to NHS and

I hereby petition the MPs and parliament to seriously consider a ban on advertising and promotion on alcohol and gambling across all advertising platforms. In Hopes to bring change to the current state of mental health and addiction problems we face in the UK. Which affect many families and individuals, causing health problems sometimes losing everything and even lives.

Two of the biggest addictions that the UK face are being advertised constantly throughout social media to television, billboards, supermarkets, Magazines, newspapers. Being everywhere, it is becoming more accessible and easy for people to form an addiction to these unhealthy traits. 

Especially if someone does struggle with an addiction, to have the temptation constantly everywhere you look is making it near enough impossible for them to kick the habit.

The Tobacco Advertising & Promotion Act 2002 was enacted in November 2002 in the UK. I would like to urge the mps in parliament to consider alcohol and gambling advertising and promotion with the same prohibition.

I believe banning these advertisements will be a positive change our society.
