Default Need your help identifying an old TV show...

But you have to do it by plot...

Here's what I remember. I believe I saw this in the 1980's, and it was in color.

It was basically about a guy who was an alcoholic. He met a guy who claimed he could cure his drinking problem (we'll call him salesman).

Salesman gives guy a pill to take. The pill (eventually) turns into something in the guy's stomach resembling a centipede. The centipede creature basically hurts the guy internally every time he takes a drink of alcohol.

I can't remember the series, or the name of the episode. I can't remember if it was part of the 1980's "Twilight Zone" remake, or if it was "Tales From The Darkside" or what...

Anybody got any ideas?

According to a Google search for TV episode alcohol and centipede it is indeed the Twilight Zone and an episode called the Hellgrammite Method.


Other search results that brings up are the Human Centipede(no) and alcoholic drinks containing centipedes(euww no)
