Thinking about the motifs of addiction and recovery in Mike Flanagan's work: how addiction is created and fueled by trauma and horror and how it is not portrayed in a judgemental or gratuitous way but shows the addict as deeply human and how addicts get redemption not despite their addiction but through it and their recovery and surrender.
And still the overall message is one of hope because the opposite of addiction is connection and the opposite of horror is love. In this essay I will

The Fate fandom is so鈥 weird about addiction? Like I kinda want to beam into everyone鈥檚 brains that addicts are not weaker-willed than you, addicts are not lesser, and being an addict is not a moral failing/a punchline/a gotcha. And like, once you notice it you can鈥檛 really. Un-notice it. Idk it鈥檚 a prominent attitude in society at large but on a smaller scale I really wish people would identify it more in how they talk about Fate and its characters (and also FGO players to an extent)

john mulaney has checked into rehab. here鈥檚 what we are going to do:
鈥 support him
鈥 wish him well
鈥 respect his privacy
here鈥檚 what we are NOT going to do
鈥 make jokes because addiction is not funny
鈥 speculate anything about his marriage or personal life
鈥 attack those in his personal life (*ahem, leave anna alone. don鈥檛 go asking pete davidson for details. none of that)
addiction is a serious disease, and while this news may be troubling, i am so proud of him for seeking help. you can too.

(CW: Subtance Abuse) A lot of people on this hellsite (rightfully) look up to John Mulaney for a number of reasons, so with the news of his return to rehab to handle SUD-related issues, please be kind to yourself and to anyone you know who鈥檚 struggling with addiction.
Addiction is not a weakness or a character flaw. Sobriety is often a lifelong endeavor. John Mulaney has been candid about his substance abuse in the past; he鈥檚 been working on his sobriety for over 15 years. He isn鈥檛 any weaker for a relapse, and his desire to go into rehab is commendable and honestly brave. He is absolutely still a person to look up to: his worth as a person has not 鈥渃hanged鈥 with this revelation.
Addiction is isolating in regular conditions. Given the hell year we鈥檝e had, where our existence has become even further defined by distance and isolation, people who are struggling with substance abuse and addiction are probably even more isolated than ever. Be kind to yourself, and be kind to any loved ones who are feeling isolated or struggling with SUD.
For US friends, here鈥檚 the SAMHSA resources page 鈥 their referral service doesn鈥檛 require insurance and is completely confidential. If you don鈥檛 have insurance, they can get you in contact with state sponsored offices; they also have a directory to search for programs.
(If anyone has more info on how to seek counseling and rehab for addiction with/without insurance, please add it in the notes!)
While I wish John Mulaney the best as a fellow human and want to thank him for all the happiness he鈥檚 brought me with his comedy, I don鈥檛 want him to work on his sobriety simply because I want to hear his next comedy special. I don鈥檛 want anyone鈥檚 battle for sobriety to be framed in terms of how they can return to their normal function, to their 鈥渦sefulness鈥 to society. I just want him to be happy and healthy with his wife and his dog and himself, full stop. I鈥檇 like to remind everyone that nobody 鈥 Mulaney, me, or the person reading this 鈥 ever, ever owes anyone a joke or a smile.
Stay safe and healthy this winter !

Step 1: Traumatize people to the point that they use drugs to cope.
Step 2: Use their drug use as evidence that they're moral failures and deserve the trauma.

Drug addicts deserve common decency no matter what drug they are addicted to, how severe their addiction is, and whether or not they are receiving help for their addiction.

already seeing plenty of posts on twitter about john mulaney so let鈥檚 remind y鈥檃ll that addiction isn鈥檛 鈥渕orally wrong,鈥 addicts don鈥檛 look or behave in a specific way, and addicts who aren鈥檛 rich/famous/white deserve the same amount of respect and access to resources as celebrities who come out about their struggles.

Debate Twitter highlights. CNN reporters literally called the debate a 鈥渉ot mess inside of a dumpster fire inside of a train wreck鈥 and much more simply: 鈥渁 shitshow.鈥

Some do drugs, others go out for a run, but at the end we鈥檙e all just searching for that tiny space, perhaps a hole, that gives us shelter from the terrible reality of the world.
