“I’d close the drapes, take a swig of NyQuil, toast with a simple ‘bye-bye’ and go into a deep sleep. … I was miserable the whole time.”
In case you didn’t know, Glee‘s Jane Lynch has a book coming out, wherein she discusses her previous battles with both depression and addiction. Lynch discusses a dark period in her life when she was substituting alcohol with NyQuil, and NyQuil with marijuana, and how it began to affect her mental well-being.
Call me old school or a trendy drug prude, but I wasn’t aware that taking NyQuil recreationally was a “thing.” I mean, it is? This is a thing that people do? Is this how Lindsay Lohan got her start, or is it a horse of an entirely different color?
Either way, congrats, Jane, for beating something that was obviously leading to other destructive behaviors. Good for you!
