[Found a gold mine while researching Victorian attitudes towards opiate addiction. The following article, written by a Victorian doctor, covers physical symptoms of addiction and withdrawal, methods used to acquire and consume the drugs involved, contemporary vocabulary relating to opiates, and a Victorian physician’s opinion on the whole phenomenon. You can read the original text on archive.org, or a cleaned-up version below this cut. Enjoy!]
