1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Smoke-A-Doped", Way to Die #463, is the fifth death to be featured in "Gratefully Dead", which aired on January 13, 2010.


Mindy and Lex are a nymphomaniac couple who love to get it on. Lex (who hates that Mindy is a smoker) gives her an ultimatum after she lights a cigarette after sex: Either stop smoking or there will be no more sex. Not wanting to give up sex, she places a month's worth of nicotine patches all over her body, thinking they would help her beat her addiction overnight. The excess of nicotine from the patches overloads her system and she dies of cardiac arrest.

"Mindy didn't wanna lose out on one day of Lex's boning, but if she was going to stop smoking, she wanted to get it over with. To that end, she put a month's worth of nicotine patches on her body to quit once and for all overnight."
