Trope I am getting seriously fed up with.

Single traumatic event (usually death by murder of loved one) leads to INSTANT drug addiction/alcoholism complete with lines like, “trying to drinking himself to death” and “crawled into a bottle and/or syringe.” YES, trauma can lead to self-destructive behavior, but generally NOT full-blown addiction. (Not all by its lonesome, anyway.)

It's the kind of "instant angst" I used to eat up with a spoon and now it's just one big eye-roll.
