* In the ''Literature/AubreyMaturin'' novels, Dr. Maturin develops a powerful addiction to the (opium-based) tincture of laudanum. After successfully kicking the habit, he finds a perfectly healthy substitute, one he knows to be non-addictive... the coca leaves chewed by the natives of Peru[[note]]The joke is obvious, but counterintuitively, he's probably just fine. The raw coca leaf is ''vastly'' less potent than refined cocaine and really isn't considered addictive[[/note]].
