* [[ComicBook/LuckyLuke]], famously, caused by ExecutiveMeddling from the MoralGuardians. Lucky Luke was created as a heavy smoker in a time where it wasn't controversial, and the way his mouth is classically drawn is designed to fit him having a cigarette in it at all times. When the MoralGuardians complained and had the authors scrap the cigarette, they had him much a straw so as not to have to change his trademark mouth shape. Much later, they finally acknowledged the change in a story where someone offers Luke a cigarette, and he says that he has quit it and munches the straw as a way to deal with it.

One of the twelve steps involves service to other members and the group as a whole. It's also key to recovery to put recovery above other interests. In short, it isn't an addiction to the groups at all, but a lifestyle change necessary to achieve sobriety.
