* Several characters from ''ASongOfIceAndFire''. King Robert Baratheon spends as much time as he can with a [[TheHedonist comfortable buzz]]... mainly because he's depressed as hell, and it's his way of coping. It bites him in a [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy number of ways]]. [[LadyDrunk Cersei]] becomes one over the course of the series, which is part of the reason Jaime finds her increasingly repulsive. Sandor Clegane has long been one, and even in the second book is rarely seen sober; in the third book, he basically wanders around getting drunk when and wherever possible (with a ten-year-old in tow, no less). [[spoiler: It's his [[FatalFlaw downfall]]. Turns out it's kind of hard to fight when you're that drunk.]] There's Tyrion Lannister, who is a high functioning version of this, and is always looking for more wine. But, as the series illustrates, the more drunk you are, the better your chances of catching the IdiotBall, even if you don't go full-on AlcoholInducedIdiocy. Even you, Tyrion.
