(MADRID) - British actor, Anthony Hopkins, is considered to be one of the most talented actors in the world today. Among his most important movies are: The Elephant Man, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, The Remains of the Day, Howards End, The Mask of Zorro, The World's Fastest Indian, Hearts in Atlantis, as well as Nixon and Fracture. In 2003, Hopkins was awarded a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.

73-year-old Hopkins admits that he would drink because he was insecure of himself. That is why he became an alcohol addict. Now that he reflects about those days, he confesses that they actually represent a blessing for him. Thanks to those dark times, “I am now a stronger person”, he states. He furthers admits of how lonely an alcoholic ends up feeling, of how lonely he ended up feeling.

Moreover, alcoholism continues being one of the darkest burdens of today’s youth.

They usually begin drinking between the ages of 13 and 14. According to Alcoholic Anonymous, abusive alcohol consumption has led to addiction amidst new generations. Alcohol places first on the drug rank: 81.2% of teenagers between the ages of 14 and 18 abuse of alcohol.

Promoting alcohol is one of the most debated and polemic issues faced by advertisement legislation. It is true that ad prohibitions are justified by policy-makers in order to protect public health and security. They aim to prevent alcohol abuse through legislation.

Alcohol abuse generates more problems than drugs do. The Spanish government has destined more than 22 million Euros to programs against drugs and alcohol.

There have also been launched ad campaigns against alcohol consumption with the following slogans: “Alcohol fills up empty spaces”; “Speak with your children, information is prevention”; “Drink moderately, it’s your responsibility”. These efforts all aim to moderate abusive drinking behavior and to raise awareness of reducing the abuse of alcoholic drinks.
