* [[http://darwinawards.com/darwin/darwin2003-02.html A smoker]] was on a long distance Coach bus--[[MustHaveNicotine that didn't allow smoking]]. When she just couldn't take it anymore, she got up and exited the bus while it was on the highway, dying in the process.
* Very much TruthInTelevision, as any medical professional working in a holiday destination can testify. A nice family vacation in some remote mountain village, and daddy cut off from all his usual secret sources of booze, makes for an exciting trip to your local hospital to treat withdrawal symptoms. Which can be life-threatening, so DontTryThisAtHome.
* Also TruthInTelevision for people looking for rentals. In ''many'' places, even outdoor off-property smokers are refused or evicted, so the choice often comes down to quit smoking (or lie about it and hope to never be caught), pay far more for a less controlling roommate, or be homeless. Also extends to alcohol for some roommates/living situations - there are some that will evict people for as much as having a can of beer in their room.
* Many visitors to Muslim countries find that getting booze can be quite difficult, expensive, or both, resulting in severe cutbacks to consumption or even total sobriety. The reaction to this varies, but Central Asia, North Africa, and the Middle East are not considered great destinations for boozehounds.
* An almost-literal version of being nailed to the wheel: when the British Army abolished flogging in 1881, the draconian Field Punishment Number One was substituted. This was in use until after the end of UsefulNotes/WW1 and only abolished in 1923. Used for offences just short of court-martial, including and often imposed for habitual drunken-ness, the punishment involved tying the offender by wrists and ankle to a wheel. Whether or not this wheel belonged to a vehicle in motion was at the whim of the officer. The punishment was explicitly referred to as "crucifixion" and was probably the last survival of the mediaeval punishment of "breaking on the wheel". [[note]] The British Army probably did away with it for practical reasons - in the 1920's it moved from horse-drawn wagons with spoked wheels to motorised transport - with far smaller wheels that lacked spokes and which would have been impossible to tie offenders to.[[/note]]. [[http://spartacus-educational.com/FWWfield.htm An appalled observer of one punishment wrote]]:
-->"One fine evening two military policemen appeared with a handcuffed prisoner, and, in full view of the crowd and villagers, tied him to the wheel of a limber, cruciform fashion. The poor devil, a British Tommy, was undergoing Field Punishment Number One, and this public exposure was part of the punishment. There was a dramatic silence as every eye watched the man being fastened to the wheel, and some jeering started. Lashing men to a wheel in public was one of the most disgraceful things in the war."
