[[HenpeckedHusband It's been two years since my last decision]]. The other day I had the urge to ''make'' a decision, but I called up my sponsor and he talked to me until those feelings went away."

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dmQ3QWpy1Q music video]] of Music/LinkinPark's "Heavy" has the late lead singer Chester Bennington and the song's featured singer Music/{{Kiiara}} attending one. Considering the theme of the song and Bennington's own real-life issues, it's likely a support group for people with depression issues.

* As in the book, the movie of ''Film/FightClub'' has the main character going to support groups for people with terminal diseases (even though he doesn't have one), because he finds that witnessing their misery allows him to sleep. It stops working when he encounters Marla, who does the same thing.

Of course, it's more obvious that she's a fraud when she attends a support group for a condition that is impossible for her to have had: Testicular cancer.

* ''Series/{{Dexter}}'' has the title character go into Narcotics Anonymous after he covered up his strange behavior (related to his serial killing) by [[SureLetsGoWithThat telling his girlfriend he was a addict (she assumes it's heroin)]]. The therapy ended up reaching over into his desire to kill, but also set him up with an enabler. And causes him to meet a hot EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette whose [[IntimateHealing supportive sexual relationship]] actually keeps him clean for much of the season.
