While this is similar to DrowningMySorrows, this is only a temporary solution. If the situation is especially bad, the drink can incite the same reaction as the BestBeerEver. Once they have the freaking drink, they're back on their feet with their head securely attached and ready to get back to business. Someone who needs a freaking drink will never have a BeardOfSorrow, either. If they need nicotine to go with their alcohol they may opt for a CigaretteOfAnxiety.

* ''Series/{{Sherlock}}''. In "The Abominable Bride", Inspector Lestrade turns up to consult Sherlock Holmes who, noting how he keeps eyeing the decanter, orders Watson to pour him what he desperately wants. But Watson notes how quickly Lestrade has drained the glass, implying that he didn't "want" a drink, he ''needed'' it as the case Lestrade wants to consult Holmes on has him seriously spooked. Holmes congratulates Watson on his improving powers of observation.

''{{Series/Reba}}'' has some:
** The fifth season episode "Reba and the One": Late in the episode, Reba is enjoying some alone time at a restaurant when Brock and Barbra Jean show up there as well. Desperate to keep the masquerade going, Reba drags another patron to be her pretend date, at one point making an off-hand disparate remark about musicians. After the dust settles, Reba asks him about his occupation. His response: "I'm a musician." Remembering what she said earlier regarding musicians, Reba finishes the glass of wine in her hand in one gulp without a word.
** Early on during the episode "[[DietEpisode Have Your Cake]]", Cheyenne volunteers herself ''and'' Reba into a diet to show support for Barbra Jean, who worries about being overweight, going so far as to tell Barbra Jean she could visit anytime she wants to, 24/7. Then this exchange takes place after Barbra Jean leaves:
-->'''Reba''': Cheyenne, did you just tell Barbra Jean she could come over here 24/7?!
-->'''Cheyenne''': Now, mom, it's important to let her know she has support. Having a support system is how I got over my alcohol addiction.
-->'''Reba''': [[LampshadeHanging Alcohol. Good idea.]]
-->'''Barbra Jean''': (Entering the house) Reba, I've got an idea -- matching sweatshirts. (Leaves)
-->'''Reba''': [[LampshadeHanging Alcohol. And a ''lot'' of it.]]

* The sporkers of Blog/DasSporking often get involved with this, taking advantage of the fact that most can summon drinks of their choice through various magical means. Mervin often makes use of this, with one memorable instance involving her drinking vodka in orange juice, getting increasingly exasperated with the work she was sporking (''[[Literature/{{Twilight}}/New Moon]]'') and as a result adding less and less orange juice to the vodka. By the end, she's drinking vodka with the orange juice added in with an eyedropper.
