Netflix stand-up star and “Saturday Night Live” Alum Mullaney is speaking openly about her past struggles, including her partying from a young age and stories of prescription and illegal drug abuse. He first calmed down at the age of 23.
The source said, “John’s friends and family are happy that he is finally helping and focusing on his health.
“His fans know that he is struggling in the past, he has spoken openly about it. Unfortunately he has struggled again during the epidemic.

In an interview last year, Mullainy revealed that he started drinking from the age of 13. “I drank for meditation,” he said. “I was really outgoing, and then at the age of 12, I wasn’t. I didn’t know how to work. And then I was drinking, and I was elated again.”
He said in an Esquire cover story that his drinking also inspired him to start using drugs. He says that when he didn’t like smoking pot, he “loved” cocaine and dubbed it with prescription drugs.
