    Alcoholism runs rampant in my family and the alcohol ads are entirely too enticing and normalizing of alcohol use. I actually am a bartender but as I value professionalism, I would never drink at work. I actually haven't drank in months. I use twitch in my free time to destress and distract me (as a viewer) and to hopefully entertain and inspire (as a streamer). I take my role streaming very seriously and have not sipped alcohol in a single stream. I find when watching other streams drinking is almost the incentive to watch- to watch your favorite streamer get drunk. I feel extremely uncomfortable with this and I hope this platform finds a way to stop advertising alcohol as it is seriously enabling and dangerous. Those under a legal drinking age are watching twitch streamers drink excessively and I think this could lead to not only a density of non-sober streamers but non-sober younger viewers developing bad habits. I hope you really take this seriously as I have young family who loves using this app. I hope twitch streaming can be looked at as a profession and in a profession/ career I don't think using alcohol should be acceptable. I am extremely aware this is an unpopular opinion as someone who's only a couple months sober I would very much appreciate the purging of alcohol use and advertising on Twitch. Thank you.
