One thing that I think is interesting, from Sagatafl's Addiction build system, is that it allows for drugs that have beneficial long-term effects, directly inspired by the Spice from Frank Herbert's "Dune" setting. You get hooked on the drug, and after that if you stop taking the necessary quantity you'll die, just like with traditional drugs, but instead of harming you, by slowly destroying your body or mind or both, the addiction actually helps you, in various ways, such as by slowing down the aging process.
