The Not Safe For Delicate Viewers story that follows is not for everyone — in fact, if you aren’t positively motivated to click there right away when I describe the story, you should probably avoid it — but the saga of Jason Mewes getting clean from addictions to heroin, oxycontin, alcohol, cocaine, and practically any other substance you can imagine occupies the following nine links (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9). We can’t say, “finally getting clean”; he hasn’t lived that long yet. But at least it seems as though he’s not addicted right now, and that’s a big deal. If it doesn’t sound as though he’s attained the moral stature of a saint, at least he looks pretty good.
It’s repulsive and repetitive: that’s a large part of the point of telling about addiction.
