Poe's dependecies were alcohol, occasional marital affairs (this one is not totally believed, but thought to be possible), and the use of opium (among other drugs).

Edgar Allen Poe had a brain tumor. His doctor would perscirbe Opium for him. Some of the stories he hads told came from his Opium "trips." He was a man that loved his alcohol and he experienced it well. But it is my personal opinion that if my life was half as bad as he I would want a drink too.

Opium. Occasional drinking- not entirly a dependency though.
