This chapter posits that the ban on alcohol has caused a dependence on other addictive or intoxicating substances for enjoyment. It points to the widespread use of the tobacco pipe, weighing up its pros and cons of this pastime. Turning then to coffee, which often accompanied the pipe, this chapter briefly surveys its history among the Arabs then turns to preparation and coffeehouses. Finally it looks at hashish (hemp) and opium, which were less widely used—where and how they were prepared, sold, and consumed.
