Need a plate of generic, insipid platitudes with a giant helping of bad science and misogyny?

    Don’t forget the time he wanted to quit benzos to show how masculine he was. His doctors wanted to taper him down so his brain didn’t fry (benzo addiction alters brain chemistry and withdrawal can seriously screw you up or kill you if you stop), but trying to taper off over several years wasn’t manly and powerful. So he flew to Russia and got a few potentially sketchy doctors to put him in a medical coma for a month, and that’s part of why he’s so fucked up now.

    Oh, or the part where his daughter convinced him to only ever eat red meat, and literally nothing else.

      Even though facing the road to recovery like a man is manlier than an easy band-aid fix where you go nap-nap for a little bit and wake up crazy, but unaddicted.

        Thanks for connecting the dots for my dumb ass - it was on the tip of my frontal lobe but I just couldn’t quite make it…
