"Smoke-A-Doped", Way to Die #463, is the fifth death 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 thought that she could kick her addiction with a patch job. Instead,she wound up... smoking herself."
