* Averted in ''Literature/TinkerTailorSoldierSpy''. Smiley relates how he gave his lighter and a packet of cigarettes to KGB spymaster Karla, a chain-smoker who was being forced to return to Moscow and possible execution there.

* Sanji from ''OnePiece'' is a chain smoker, usually smoking one cigarette at a time, but when he becomes really upset (like when Keimi was kidnapped and about to be sold as a slave), he has been seen smoking five cigarettes at a time.
* Jigen, from ''Franchise/LupinIII'' [[InvertedTrope inverts]] the idea. The cool gunman is only smoking when he's relaxed. (He's nearly always relaxed) Putting the cigarette out if the situation is getting tense/excited.

Cue OutrunTheFireball as first a fuel truck, then the tanker goes up, blowing a massive hole in the bridge.

Somewhat of a TruthInTelevision, as the nicotine in smoking [[http://www.stlamerican.com/your_health_matters/health_studies/article_62727afc-374e-11e1-99a4-0019bb2963f4.html does help with stress]], however, in the grand scheme of things, it's a short-term solution to a long-term problem; the user only thinks that their stress is gone from smoking, when in reality, their underlying stress has been covered up by the nicotine; not treated. Also, if they keep up the habit they will have to deal with the stressor of addiction.
