A character has agreed to give up a certain thing, like drugs, smoking or certain snack foods, [[NatureAdoresAVirgin or sex]]. Unfortunately, everywhere he looks, he's reminded of the item he's given up, sometimes via MeatOVision. As the episode goes on, his resolve is severely tested as his {{Jerkass}} friends and (clueless) bystanders will do their best to tempt him. You can expect [[StatusQuoIsGod karma]] to be a bitch and offer dozens of free "once in a lifetime, sent from heaven" opportunities to indulge in the vice.

** A third instance has a Jewish friend of the cast trying to make it through her first fast on Yom Kippur. When she gets hungry, she turns to TV to get her mind off it, only for all the shows on to be about food. Dissatisfied, she turns to reading, only for all the books she picks out to have titles relating to food.

* [[PlayedForLaughs Played hilariously for laughs]] in ''Manga/HeavensLostProperty'', where Sakurai Tomoki is a major pervert, with exceptional love for panties, and he got a hold of a HUGE amount of panties after a certain event. It made his ChildhoodFriend mad, and... It didn't end pretty. It appears she turned the panties to BOMBS that explode each time he looks at them. He had to try and resist looking at his adored panties until he's out of his home... They were quite literally everywhere. In the end, he gave up and embraced EVERYTHING. He lost his house as a result. Seriously, the sheer hilarity of that cannot be described.
