"The opinion that Alcoholic Liquors afford to the human system a stimulus, which, if not absolutely necessary to its well-being, is. nevertheless, beneficial, by promoting in the several organs a vigorous and healthful exercise of their respective functions, and by enabling them, thus, to resist more effectually the various disturbing agencies to which they are daily subjected, is one that has been long entertained, and of the correctness of which a large portion of the public still entertains a firm conviction. To the influence of this opinion may be ascribed much of the intemperance that has prevailed in the world, and it even now presents a formidable barrier to the success of every effort at reform in respect to the use of intoxicating liquors as a beverage. All are agreed as to the baneful influence upon health and morals resulting from the excessive use of alcoholic drinks, and of the importance of guarding against this abuse of them by every means within our power. But so long as the opinion prevails, that in moderate quantities the use of these drinks is both proper and salutary, it will scarcely be possible to guard the masses against Indulgence in them to excess--every effort to stay the progress of intemperance, with its attendant evils, disease, poverty, insanity and crime, will be unavailing. To teat the truth of the opinion referred to, by an examination of the effects produced upon the human frame by the use of alcoholic drinks, whether in moderate or excessive doses, is the object of the present Essay. And we know of nothing that has been written upon this important question better calculated to eradicate the prejudices which still exist in respect to intoxicating liquors, and to prevent the habitual abuse of them, by showing that their occasional moderate use, so far from promoting the health and vigour of the human frame, or increasing its capacity to sustain bodily or mental labour, or to resist the extremes of cold and heat, and other depressing agencies, is, on the contrary, under all circumstances, rather injurious than beneficial"--Preface.
