** In another early example of celebrity rehab, JerryLewis kicked a 12-year addiction to Percodans (oxycodone with aspirin) in 1978, and was consequently featured in People magazine as one of the first mainstream celebs to admit to drug abuse. The tablets had been prescribed for a serious back injury from a pratfall that went wrong. Shortly after quitting, Lewis nearly died from a gastric ulcer bleed - caused by the aspirin in the tablets. The symptoms had been hidden by the analgesic effect. This is why the drug companies switched to mixing the oxycodone with APAP instead, to make the now better-known Percocets.

In RealLife, [[NoMoreForMe breaking free of a drug addiction]] can be a lengthy process, and none of it is fun. For certain addictions, most famously alcohol, heroin, and sedatives, it may take months and require medical supervision. For some substances, going cold turkey in real life can be dangerous as the body can develop a physical dependency on the chemicals. Psychological dependencies can be equally agonizing, but they will only make one wish they would die. In fiction, however, people routinely overcome their substance habit by going through [[NailedToTheWagon a single self-imposed (and often painful) withdrawal phase]], after which they are no longer addicted. May involve throwing the drugs in the trash, flushing them down a toilet, or pouring alcohol down a drain. Frequently involves locking oneself up in a room or chaining oneself to a bed. Friends may be enlisted to [[NoMatterHowMuchIBeg help prevent backsliding]].
