 Addiction in the Nineteenth Century
The teetotal movement began as a reaction against what it viewed as the hypocrisy of arguments for moderation and middle-class patronage; its leadership was more working class, and it had more ties to political movements such as Chartism.
Neither temperance nor teetotalism contained a concept of "addiction" as a disease; both viewed it more as a moral failing that the individual could correct if surrounded with better influences, such as alternative venues to pubs, community meetings at which members told their personal stories, propagandistic literature, and rituals such as the pledge.
Part of the teetotal ritual was the platform speech - a public, first-person confessional narrative of the drunkard's past, combined with a pledge to abstain henceforth.

 The Mavens' Word of the Day   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-02)
While the existing evidence shows that teetotal in senses referring to alcoholic abstinence developed in England the 1830s, there was slightly earlier American evidence for the adverb teetotally 'totally; completely' (also found in an exaggerated form as teetotaciously).
It has also been claimed that teetotal was coined in a New York temperance society in the 1820s, but the evidence of this has not been found.
Some of the various words in this family are teetotal 'of, relating to, or practicing complete alcoholic abstinence'; teetotally 'in a teetotal manner'; teetotalism 'the complete abstinence from alcohol'; teetotalist and much more usually teetotal(l)er 'one who practices teetotalism', and a few others, most of which were also first used in the 1830s.

 A Transcription of Charles Dickens's "Frauds on the Fairies" (1 October 1853)
George Cruikshank (1792--1878) earned the novelist's Horatian satire for his re-writing traditional fairy tales in a moral manner designed to inveigh against the evils of alcoholism, which the reformed dipsomaniac had explored in a cautionary series of plates entitled The Bottle (1847) and its sequel, The Drunkard's Children (1848).
Dickens's initial response to this social realism was initially positive, but as one who favoured reasoned moderation rather than absolute teetotalism, Dickens gradually came to regard Cruikshank's temperance propaganda as fanaticism.
However, re-writing fairy tales as moral (particularly teetotalism) was nothing new in 1853: Dr. Thomas Bowdler (1754-1825) who in retirement on the Isle of Wight issued the sexually sanitized Family Shakespeare in 1818 had also re-written traditional fairy tales.

I've read some dissenting commentary on the issue and some sermons by John Piper (here and here) on a similar situation he went through at his local church back in the early 1980's.
I'm intrigued by this debate because I'm a teetotaler and a lover of God's Word, so I come down on the issue almost exactly where Piper does: I'm a teetotaler and a promoted of teetotalism, but I don't think this legalism by the SBC is even remotely Biblical.
