Jason Mewes' Addiction Story

This is a really great read about Jason Mewes' struggle with heroin and oxycontin addiction. It's a nine part series written by Kevin Smith in his online diary. If you've got an hour or so, check it out. I was completely engrossed by it after reading the first chapter and had to finish the entire thing. Since it's so long, I'm not going to copy+paste it. Check it out at: http://silentbobspeaks.com/?m=20060418

I was just reading it yesterday... Kevin Smith is a good writer as well as film director -
- I got really sad reading the part where Jason would actually get so upset he'd smash his head into the wall and bleed from it.

But yes... really really good story about addiction and recovery, thanks for posting it here!

On another note, has anyone seen Clerks2? Good movie D

PS: the first section of the article is here:

I agree with ya for sure. Love his movies and love how people can take a bad situation and turn it into something outstanding. The best stories almost always start from some life event.

Re: Jason Mewes' Addiction Story

I just sat through and read the entire story in one go, very addictive to read (no pun intended, oh gawd). Here are all the nine links to the story parts, for convenience since there's no link at the end of each story that I could see:

Also, if you like Kevin Smith make sure to check out his podcast, it's called Smodcast and can be found here http://www.quickstopentertainment.com/smodcast/ He seems to get completely stoned every now and then, it's amusing to notice the quiet sound of a bong being hit discreetly. Usually followed by some baked digression about Aquaman getting high, etc...

Re: Jason Mewes' Addiction Story

It's an entertaining read no doubt, but unfortunately the author makes some, well, blatantly untrue claims. I appreciate that he knows alot about the effects of addiction on those surrounding the addict.......but that is pretty much all he knows, and it shows.

He repeatedly talks of Delirium Tremens as being a part of heroin withdrawal, when actually DT's are associated with alcohol withdrawal, and are deadly. He also claims Oxycontin does not create a tolerance in the user. It's a very personal, opinionated read, unfortunately, even when it comes down to what are presented as facts.

So while it is an entertaining read, remember that the author is talking from his personal perspective, and, remarkably, considering how close he was with Mewes, knows few facts about heroin addiction.
