* It's heavily implied (read: all but explicitly stated) that this is why ''Comicbook/{{Empowered}}'''s Ninjette is the HardDrinkingPartyGirl she is.

--> '''Renee:''' No. Seems that all the problems I have when I start drinking are still there when I stop.
* ''ComicBook/{{Flare}}'' did this in the "Duel" story, which was a crossover with ''ComicBook/EternitySmith''.
* John Constantine does this at least twice in ''ComicBook/{{Hellblazer}}'', most notably in the ''Tainted Love'' arc where, after a painful breakup, he not only drinks constantly but lives on the street for months, refusing to "magic" his way out of it.



* Tara Chace in ''ComicBook/QueenAndCountry'' by Greg Rucka has a penchant for this; Rucka does this with a few of his heroines. See the Renee Montoya example, ''supra''.

* Averted in ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic''. Sonic is shown in disguise at a bar after [[spoiler:believing he killed the Freedom Fighters as Super Sonic]] but doesn't drink alcohol.

** Subverted in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''. Cap ''wants'' to drown his sorrows after [[spoiler:Bucky, his best friend, is killed]], but the super-serum he's been given has sped up his metabolism to the point that he can't get drunk no matter how hard he tries--and if the bottle shown on the table was full when he started, he tried pretty damn hard.
* In ''Film/IronMan2'' Tony decides to get absolutely plastered at his birthday party [[spoiler:as his arc reactor is slowly killing him]]. He ends up blowing up half his house.

* ''Fanfic/TheVow'': Lord Chang succumbs to drinking wine after his wife passes away.
** While [[spoiler:Lord Shen]] is wallowing in the shame of being crippled during the epilogue, he considers doing this. However, he ultimately defies this trope when he remembers the above mentioned Chang and decides he doesn't want to become like the swan noble he despises.
