* A tragic example in ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' with Vera Keyes. Her partner in crime finds out that she has making heavy use of narcotics and painkillers, and blackmails her into helping him. Technically it's true that Vera is indeed on all of those drugs.... but the reason is that she's terminally ill and her condition causes her severe chronic pain. She doesn't want anyone to know she's dying, so she takes drugs secretly to manage her symptoms.
