The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter — it's the difference between a lightning bug and the lightning. — Mark Twain

@what The layout person has authorization to cut text? Is that from experience? I haven't seen that myself.

You make exactly the case that Watson did, and the good doctor weaned Holmes off the 7% solution after a few years as a fellow lodger. BBC's Sherlock is clean when John meets him (but admits using in the past), and JLMiller's Holmes on Elementary goes to 12-step meetings regularly as part of the show.

Then you didn't understand how his mind worked. He constantly needed input, data, intellectual stimulation. If he couldn't get it from a puzzle/crime, he turned to drugs. It's an integral part of the character in any incarnation.

Oh yeah, I managed to forget that whole plot arc of House losing his mind due to Vicodin abuse (which was inserted at network insistence, BTW; that drug doesn't have that side effect).

To be fair, that describes quite a few episodes of House. Were you referencing "Safe"? imdb.com/title/tt0774238/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_26

"The idea of a brilliant detective being a drunkard or a drug addict seems a little out of character to me." Read any Sherlock Holmes stories lately?

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about promotion, not about writing.
