People in recovery will tell you it's part of the disease. It's a very selfish thing.

All three of my brothers died from alcohol/drug related issues, one leaving a 15 year old, and one leaving 3 older childen, the youngest, 17, and 3 grandchildren.

It is a helpless feeling to watch them destroy themselves with nothing you can do

I tried the mean and loving approaches. Neither worked. I don't know how my poor mother goes on. She is 78 now and had a stroke in 2004, not related to their deaths.

I used to think suicide was the coward's way out, but, some people feel pain and are feeling useless, none of us see.

Re: Philip Seymour Hoffman Found Dead in Manhattan Apartment

His roles in 'The Big Lebowski' and 'Patch Adams' weren't the biggest, but I can't imagine any other actor playing those parts. I am officially bummed by this news

Re: Philip Seymour Hoffman Found Dead in Manhattan Apartment

A lot of lives are destroyed in the drug trade so selfish pricks like this can get his high going, including the grieving children who no longer have a dad.

Strung out junkie won his best award yet... The Darwin. His acceptance speech was "whoa man..."

Only shame was, with Chris Farley dead, he was the next best actor for any future Rob Ford movie.

The guy had money, fame, a family, but chose to shit it away for drugs like any average gutter dwelling junkie piece of shit. Fuck him, filthy junkie, good riddance.

Four People Arrested as Part of Inquiry Into Hoffman’s Death

Quote:
Four people were arrested in Lower Manhattan on Tuesday evening with more than 350 bags of heroin as part of the investigation into the death of the actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, a law enforcement official said.
Narcotics investigators executed search warrants in three apartments in a building at 302 Mott Street on Tuesday evening, the official said. Three men and a woman were arrested, and the investigators recovered the bags of heroin inside the apartments.
Information stemming from the investigation into Mr. Hoffman’s death led them to the building, the official said. Mr. Hoffman, widely considered one of the best actors of his generation, died on Sunday in an apparent heroin overdose.
He was found dead with a needle in his arm in a West Village apartment, about a mile from where the arrests took place. Near Mr. Hoffman’s body, the police found dozens of packages of heroin, some branded with the label “Ace of Spades” or with an ace of hearts.
The bags that were found during the arrests on Tuesday did not have those types of labels, the official said. The investigation was continuing, police officials said.
Earlier Tuesday, police officials said that the heroin found in Mr. Hoffman’s apartment did not contain fentanyl, a powerful additive that has been tied to 22 recent fatal overdoses in Pennsylvania. The city medical examiner had not yet reached a definitive cause of death for the actor.
Preliminary tests of the heroin found “no traces of fentanyl,” said Stephen Davis, the department’s top spokesman, adding that investigators had taken a representative sample of the substances found in the apartment in reaching that conclusion.
As the investigation into the actor’s death continued, Mr. Hoffman’s family released a statement outlining plans for a private funeral service for “the family and close friends.”
The statement said “plans were also underway for a memorial service later in the month also to be held in New York,” though no details were provided.

That pretty much sums up how I feel. I don't agree that being an addict is a disease, it's a choice. It may progress to an addiction, but that first time, is a choice. I cannot imagine having all that man had and throwing it all away, most importantly, leaving those young children without their father.

Being addicted to drugs doesn't make their life less valuable. He was known for being a good person but he just had a serious drug problem.

With that attitude, you should just say the same negativity towards Layne Staley, Chris Farley, Jimi Hendrix, and so many more great people.

Re: Philip Seymour Hoffman Found Dead in Manhattan Apartment

I didn't believe the, "disease," brand either, until I saw it first hand with my family.

As a person without an addictive personality, it's easy to say, "Stop! Think you what you're doing!" But, it doesn't work that way.

Yes, no one forces you to experience your first drink or drug, but, we don't know how our bodies will react.

Some people die their first time. Russian Roulette!
