Explanation

Our clue is the author’s “dissolution” — he may have turned to drugs, promiscuity, crime, or just letting his life fall apart. Libertinous has a similar meaning, as does the correct word debauchment.

In the second blank, you want something negative (to contrast with the opinion of the “others” who felt that his dissolution added a certain glamour to his biography).

Debauchment, derogated from.
