The campaign recommended against cigarette smoke in the environment, overheating, and products used to maintain infant sleep position (e.g., sleep positioners).

The most consistently reported message was around a process of moderation linked to changes in identity as drinkers progressed through the transition to adulthood. Key processes included having a growing sense of self- confidence, more fixed friendship groups and a preference for higher quality leisure experiences, often linked to a sense of personal development and growth. The emergence of new risks Despite (...) conditions has led policymakers in Scotland to question whether cultural attitudes in relation to alcohol should remain so tolerant of harm and misuse.
