The girls enjoyed smoking, but I don't think Alexei did/took anything, due to the fact that he was quite young and physically fragile.

Interesting about Coca-Cola!  ;D

I wonder if Olga took cocaine after she collapsed at the hospital? Her father took cocaine when he suffered from fatigue, so maybe she did that as well. What I do know is that she took doses of arsenic after her collapse.

Yes, they did indeed smoke and enjoyed it very much. In 1915 Tatiana wrote to her father;
"...I am writing to you again and am smoking the cigarette which you gave to me at the time of Lent and I did not have time to smoke it. I am enjoying it now."

There are LOTS of threads around here on Alexandra's health -- I'm sure if you do a search in the Alexandra forum you'll find the info in one of them.
