At the beginning of 'The Sign of Four,' Watson asks, 'Which is it today morphine or cocaine?' though we are not told of any morphine use until 'The Adventure of the Illustriou…s Client' after Holmes is involved in a scuffle. Holmes' attending physician, Sir Leslie Oakshott, tells Watson when he arrives: "Two lacerated scalp wounds and some considerable bruises. Several stitches have been necessary. Morphine has been injected and quiet is essential, but an interview of a few minutes would not be absolutely forbidden." These are the only two references in the stories.
i think the final problem, as it builds up a lot of tension In 1927 'The Strand Magazine' ran a contest to see who could most closely guess the author's dozen favourite Sherl…ock Holmes stories from the first 44 short stories as a promotion for the release of 'The Case-book of Sherlock Holmes.' Here is Conan Doyle's list: 1. "The Adventure of the Speckled Band" 2. "The Redheaded League" 3. "The Adventure of the Dancing Men" 4. "The Final Problem" 5. "A Scandal in Bohemia" 6. "The Adventure of the Empty House" 7. "The Five Orange Pips" 8. "The Adventure of the Second Stain" 9. "The Adventure of the Devil's Foot" 10. "The Adventure of the Priory School" 11. "The Musgrave Ritual" 12. "The Reigate Squires" Conan Doyle later added seven more short stories to his list. 13. "Silver Blaze" 14. "The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans" 15. "The Crooked Man" 16. "The Man with the Twisted Lip" 17. "The Greek Interpreter" 18. "The Resident Patient" 19. "The Naval Treaty"
Sherlock Holmes didn't take a fancy to women unless in a case to help. He criticizes women's intellect until he has an encounter with Irene Adler who he referred to as "The Wo…man". Dr. Watson says this about Sherlock Holmes but it is never to be said by himself for your own account of the matter. Dr. Watson had hoped that Sherlock Holmes would take a liking to her, but he did not. Sherlock Holmes never married. But he was certainly respectful of Irene Adler's abilities and admired her. Holmes stated that he felt invovlement with a woman would awaken the passions -- a bad thing in upper crust Victorian England's thought, and especially in Holmes' philosophy. Holmes preffered a life of pure intellect, devoid of emotion. As to Irene Adler -- the only woman to beat Holmes -- he would never use her name and referred to her only as "The woman". No one. He never married. You're asking this as though Sherlock Holmes is not only real, but alive today. Although many people would love for this to be true, it isn't. No, Sherlock Holmes has never been married. In the original Sherlock Holmes stories, Holmes never married. He retired to the country and raised bees as a hobby. In many of the alternate-universe (spin-off) Holmes stories written by other authors, Holmes marries or has a love affair. One of the better series which marries Holmes off is a mystery series by Laurie King, which begins with the book The Beekeeper's Apprentice.

I think that it depends on whether or not you believe that Sherlock Holmes was ever alive, or if he were simply a fictional character. If you are a Sherlockian, and believe th…at he was real, then I figure that he is probably dead by now, simply because he was 'supposedly' born January 6, 1854. Which at this point in time, would make him about 156 years old. It is possible, (I guess) that he could have lived that long, but I highly doubt it. As for, if you believe that he was fictional, well.... he technically was never alive to begin with. Unless you are speaking of his life through the world of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. In that case, I'm not exactly sure because it is claimed that he had died once at a waterfall, and later revealed himself to be alive the entire time. So, he may very well have died later on and has simply not 'come back to life' again.
'The Naval Treaty,' in 'The Adventure of the Empty House' there is a description of Holmes' fight with Moriarty three years earlier, 'The Adventure of the Solitary Cyclist,' a…nd 'The Adventure of the Illustrious Client.'

Impossible, because Sherlock Holmes wasn't a real person.
A fictional character created by the famous writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Sherlock Holmes is a consulting detective/sleuth who solves cases simply with the power of observati…on and deduction.
