Of course, ColdTurkeysAreEverywhere, StatusQuoIsGod, and perfect characters are unrelatable to the audience. So, one end of episode SnapBack later, they're back at square one. And the simple problem is never exaggerated this much again.

* ''Series/AllInTheFamily'': Archie and Mike have a bet over who can last longer (of a 48 hour limit): Archie without a cigar or Mike without eating. (Mike's a BigEater.) They start taunting each other: [[ColdTurkeysAreEverywhere Mike starts smoking in front of Archie and Archie eats in front of Mike]]. They decide to call it a draw, with Archie lighting up & Mike eating on the count of three; but [[spoiler: Archie pulls the lighter away from his cigar just as Mike starts eating, therefore he wins the bet. But then while gloating he accidently puts the lit end of the [[LaserGuidedKarma cigar in his mouth and burns his tongue]]]]

* In ''FatherTed'' for Lent Ted decides to give up cigarettes, Dougal rollerblading, and on Jack's behalf, Ted makes a vow that Jack will give up drinking.

* Shelton and Mavrides' ''TheFabulousFurryFreakBrothers'' (the Frisco hippies with attitude) once try going cold turkey from all recreational chemicals. After three miserable, horrible, tedious, dragging, hours, they give up and are seen snorting and ingesting every drug to hand as if their lives depended on it.

People aren't perfect. It's an understandable fact. When a character recognizes this, they might try to improve or eliminate a stock vice (alcohol, [[ADateWithRosiePalms masturbation]], swearing, eating sweets), which in any other episode would be portrayed as completely normal. But for this episode, the problem must be ''completely'' eradicated. Beyond clean living, this is a sterilization of a minor imperfection.
