The article reviews the main problems of the distribution of alcoholism and its impact on everyday life in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The dominant trend in the transformation of the role of alcohol in the existence of the society and the individual was the gradual introduction of alcohol into everyday life. The sacred role of absorbing liquids gradually receded into the background and later it was completely lost. The impact of urbanization as well as the spread of urban norms of behavior in rural areas led to a significant acceleration of this process.
