How does the media portray addiction?
Done in 2 ways: 1) Exposure To Addictive Behavior in Media- films and TV still expose alcohol and smoking. e.g, alcohol use is 86% in films and 40% TV. 2) Vicarious Reinforcement- happens when addictions portrayed positively with no consequences.

Does the exposure have an effect?
Yes. Found that tobacco and cigarette adverts in films influences a child attitude to smoking, as it increased positive attitudes to smoking
