* The early ''[[TheCatWhoSeries Cat Who...]]'' books were written in the 1960s and depicted the main character as a pipe smoker. The series was discontinued after only a few books, but revived close to 20 years later. At that point, attitudes about smoking had greatly changed and within a couple books into the relaunch, a female doctor convinced Qwilleran to drop the pipe.

A little bit of fixing up on two entries (Note and a trope-to-word addition (Contact/edit if you feel that the added note is a bit much, but it's worth noting because the example is newer than a previous, older one).

* In TheThrawnTrilogy, a well-known ship thief named Niles Ferrier smokes [[CallARabbitASmeerp carabbaba tabac cigarras]] - think small cigar with beige smoke - and the smell of carabbaba tabac smoke is something various characters use to pinpoint the man's location. He's scum. The heroes use him, and Thrawn pays him to do various things, but no one likes him and it's not hard to see why.

* In the ''{{Newsflesh}}''-verse, smoking is back in vogue, more-or-less. It can no longer cause cancer thanks to the ManMadePlague, but it can still cause emphysema. So people smoking is no indication of their morality one way or the other.

* The ''DragonKnight'' series manages a series of exceptions leading to one (brief) instance of heroic ''opium'' smoking. The protagonist is recovering from bubonic plague, local medicine is around the Dark Age level, opium is realistically the most practical painkiller available in the world, and once he's coherent enough to realize what he's been given he immediately checks with an expert on the issue of addiction. * In the VorkosiganSaga, there are a couple of examples: ** In [[CordeliasHonor Cordelia's Honor]], Cordelia's creepy psychotherapist Dr Mehta lights up at the start of a therapy session - though she doesn't inhale [[spoiler:because the smoke is actually a truth drug]]. ** In [[TheWarriorsApprentice The Warrior's Apprentice]], Baz has to pretend he's a DrillSergeantNasty type, and insists that he can only do this if he has a cigar as a prop, since the man he's modelling his performance on was a CigarChomper.

** By the second film, Hellboy's loose adherence to the rules has reduced Manning to bribing him with Cuban cigars. ''Film/HellboyIITheGoldenArmy'' actually has a disclaimer at the end of the credits (next to "this is a work of fiction" and "no animals were harmed") explicitly stating that the film's depictions of smoking are for dramatic purposes only and should not be taken to imply anything positive about smoking in real life.
