A disquisition on the evils of using tobacco, and the necessity of immediate and entire reformatione

Likening tobacco use to drinking and seeking inspiration from the success of temperance movements in Europe and the US, Fowler calls for abstinence from tobacco use in this lecture. He stresses that it is a moral imperative to avoid tobacco and labels intoxication as a form of degeneracy. Drug use as a sin is a common narrative of various anti-drug movements in US history.
