I need some help here.  Apparently, I've got a false memory of a House episode in which a young man has several fingers severed in some sort of accident.  He is also a heavy smoker, and is denied replantation surgery based on that.  He promises to quit smoking immediately, and the fingers [I believe they were cadaver fingers] are successfully attached.  But he and his wife? girlfriend? return several weeks later, and the fingers are turning black, dying.  Turns out that his addiction to smoking was  stronger than the risk of losing his fingers.

[profile] blackmare_9   doesn't recall this ever happening in House.  But I'm certain that I saw, or read, about this incident somewhere.  Does anyone else recall this incident on TV, in a movie, or perhaps a book?

Full disclosure--as I am a smoker, and have been obssessing worried about a serious, stupidly self-inflicted injury to my only functional hand since prior to Christmas, it's entirely possible that I dreamed the whole thing.  But... I really think I saw this somewhere. 

Oh, almost forgot--HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!
