* Music/LifeOfAgony frontman Keith/Mina Caputo witnessed his father destroy his life and eventually die from heroin use. ''Let's Pretend'' and ''Heroin Dreams'' reflect this.

* Everything that happens to the main character in ''AfraidOfMonsters'' is caused by the drugs that he is addicted to.
* In ''PaydayTheHeist'', the robbers go to a drug deal to waste the dealers and take only the drug money while destroying the drugs. One of the heist members Dallas performs hits on drug dealers and kingpins as he personally fights against the drug trade.

** Fallout 4 continues the tradition- you can still shoot up all sorts of different chems for buffs (and it's extremely easy to make yourself immune to addiction), and one of the NPCs you recruit can be given drugs that will giver her psychic visions that will help you. However, if you don't convince her to stop, it eventually ''will'' kill her (or rather, there's a drug that will kill her if you give it to her) and almost all of your allies disapprove of giving her drugs. There's also a party member who will eventually reveal that they're suffering from a ''severe'' Psycho addiction, to the point that they've started vomiting blood and they know that they've only got a short time left unless you help them get cured.

See also TheAggressiveDrugDealer, that monster from the '90s who finds middle-class suburbanite kids wherever they are and ''forces'' them to take his drugs. Contrast FunctionalAddict, where the negative effects of drugs are not portrayed as intensely. See also RecoveredAddict, who often delivers this Aesop. A song with this message is an OdeToSobriety. For the opposite of this trope, when drugs and drug use are portrayed positively, see DrugsAreGood.

* Contrary to popular belief, the StraightEdge movement usually does ''not'' fall prey to this trope. Straight edgers believe drug abuse and alcoholism to be unhealthy, yes, but traditional straight edge ethos is against mass-marketed morality (force-fed anti-drug StockAesops would fall under this category) just as much as mindless hedonism. The idea of straight edge isn't to practice temperance for moral or political reasons, but for the sake of self-control and independence, usually amounting to a "be your own god" ideology that very much runs contrary to the conservative or religious intentions of most anti-drug aesops.
