%%* * ''Webcomic/StringTheory'': Dr. Schtein, without a doubt. Considering all the drugs he's on, it's astonishing he can manage to walk, let alone work as a super-scientist for the government.

Added DiffLines:

* ''FanFic/SugarPlums'' the main character Ume is mentioned in passing to dependent on sleeping pills to get more than few hours of sleep a night because of constant nightmares [[ShellShockedVeteran caused by her experiences]]. This isn't treated as a big deal by anyone until [[spoiler:she also starts using antidepressants but neglects to tell most of her companions for fear that they'll think she's broken. Not only do said antidepressants cause negative side effects (like headaches and nausea) when she uses jutsu (because chakra is linked to emotions, so chemicals that regulate emotions messes with the drug) but after being heavily injured in a fight and going unconcious for several days she almost dies in the hospital because she starts [[RealityEnsues suffering seizures from withdrawal]].]]

* Using chems in the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' games can lead to chem addiction, which gives stat penalties while you're in withdrawal. It's not that hard to get by with an addiction, however, as chems tend to be plentiful, and doctors can cure your addiction for a few caps. In the earlier games, it was possible to become addicted to Nuka-Cola. Nuka-Cola withdrawal didn't even give stat penalties, just messages about how a Nuka-Cola would be nice to have.
** In ''VideoGame/Fallout4'', John Hancock, a possible companion of the player character, abuses every chem in the Commonwealth (and even became a ghoul originally after taking a hit of an experimental radioactive drug) but it never phases him one bit. How much of this is due to using chems for so long, or his ghoul physiology, is unknown. Cait, a human companion in the same game, is also an addict, but in her case it's treated as a legitimate problem [[spoiler: for which she eventually seeks assistance from the Sole Survivor in curing, if she ends up liking them enough.]]

* ''Series/{{Pulsaciones}}'': In the first episode Álex Puga can perform successfully more than half of the surgeries in his department due to the drugs he takes allowing him to stay active for longer. But eventually RealityEnsues and his drug abuse gives him a serious heart attack.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Tyrion and Cersei both spend an inordinate amount of time with a cup of wine in hand, particularly when they are nervous or upset, but it generally doesn't affect their control of a situation.

** Although technically even Holmes fits into the "ticking time-bomb" trope: in one of the later stories (written after the harmful effects of cocaine had become more widely known), Watson mentions that Holmes' addiction had eventually gotten bad enough that it had started seriously interfering with his work, at which point he was finally persuaded to quit.

Yet even after he kicked the habit, his severe boredom during downtime between cases would always cause Watson to worry about the possibility of a relapse.
