Cigarettes, definitely. Alcohol not so sure. But whatever your moral objection is, you can always make it known and go from there. If your boss is decent they’ll work to accommodate you as much as they can, even if they can’t shield you 100%

@ACD2 Everyone’s gonna be different and “you’re in advertising” either disregards these differences or suggests they should just cope. I refuse anything tied to the military industrial complex. A Muslim colleague I know would not want to work on a beer brand, whereas I’s be stoked to do so. No judgements, just our personal beliefs.

@OP To answer your question, it depends. If you’re at a big agency, I wouldn’t bring it up unless they try to assign that brand or a project for that brand to you, or it’s a part of the “group” you’re on where you’re expected to help out on it.
