* Lots of songs on Music/Arctic Monkeys' debut album ''Music/WhateverPeopleSayIAmThatsWhatImNot'' deal with this. The album deals with kids clubbing in downtown London, so it's justified in that these kids need a freaking drink mainly to escape from their wounded pride.

* "Neon Moon" by Brooks and Dunn. "That Ain't No Way to Go" by the same band, makes reference to "wishful drinkin'"

to:

* Brooks & Dunn are fond of this trope. "Neon Moon" by Brooks and Dunn. is probably the most famous, but "My Next Broken Heart, "That Ain't No Way to Go" by Go", "Whiskey Under the same band, makes reference to "wishful drinkin'"Bridge," "More Than a Margarita," "One Heartache at a Time," "Tequila Town," "Brand New Whiskey," "Hurt Train," "Goin' Under Gettin' Over You," and "She's Not the Cheatin' Kind" either are this trope or mention it in the lyrics. If it's a Brooks & Dunn break-up song, alcohol is usually involved.

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'':
** [[spoiler:The (very underage) CreepyChild Rika]] drinks wine when she's depressed, as seen in the second season. A [=TIPS=] in the game confirms that she drinks for the purpose of getting drunk.
** Same thing happens pretty often in another game of the series, ''VisualNovel/UminekoWhenTheyCry'' with Kinzo, also a few times with Beatrice and Battler.



* Roy Mustang in [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist the 2003 anime version]] of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' frequently goes to get himself drunk at local bars with best friend Maes Hughes. It's seen that he has a tremendous amount of angst over the things he did in Ishval (in this version [[spoiler:he's the one who killed Winry's parents under higher-orders, which back then almost drove him to [[AteHisGun eat his gun]] on the spot)]], and one would assume that he usually gets drunk for that reason.

* Haku Yowane from ''Music/{{Vocaloid}}s'' is notorious for this; she drinks because she knows she's just a failed {{Expy}} of Miku. [[{{Tsundere}} Neru Akita]], on the other hand, has a different way of handling her [[RageAgainstTheReflection jealousy of Miku...]]



* Gorman in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' does this with milk, and somehow [[DrunkOnMilk ends up drunk anyway]], even though [[LampshadeHanging he himself states this is impossible]].
* Played straight by an NPC in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Princess]]''. After you complete his quest, and leave his house, you can come back and find him missing. He's gone to the local tavern, and is seated at the bar, crying his eyes out because his girlfriend is seeing someone else.

* Gary Stead, TheAlcoholic of the Music/SaintEtienne ConceptAlbum ''Tales From Turnpike House'' appears in three of the twelve tracks. In "Milk Bottle Symphony" he has a hangover and by "Teenage Winter" he's ignoring the debt collectors to go down to The Hat And Fan (no longer a [[BritishPubs British Pub]], but a horrible franchised Wetherspoons-style mess mostly staffed by Australians) again, but "Last Orders For Gary Stead" tells the true story of a man hiding in the bottom of a beer glass to escape the reality that his life is rubbish and his wife has left him.
