Re: RARA-AVIS: Holmes's Cocaine Use

Date: 03 May 2002

The first chapter of THE SIGN OF FOUR opens with a long discussion in which Holmes is administering the 7% solution to himself and Watson is lecturing him on the dangers of recreational drug use. That's the earliest reference in the Canon.

In one of the later short stories, Watson mentions that he had, over the course of time, managed to wean Holmes of the habit.
