English term or phrase: Temperance movement
Culture mediates views of drugs in terms of how dangerous they are, how legal they should be and how good or bad they are. For example, the Christian, moralist, Temperance movement in 19th-century Britain set out to reduce alcohol consumption (Berridge 2005). At the end of the 19th century, cocaine was highly popular and recommended by doctors such as Sigmund Freud and Sir Clifford Albutt. At the same time, Albutt (cited in Gossop 2000) held a different view of another drug, popular today, as illustrated in a quote from his medical textbook: 'The sufferer is tremulous and loses his self-command, he is subject to fits of agitation and depression. He loses colour and has a haggard appearance. As with other such agents, a renewed dose of the poison gives temporary relief, but at the cost of future misery'. The drug described was coffee.
