Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead...


From TMZ:

"Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead Sunday in a New York City apartment of an apparent drug overdose ... TMZ has learned authorities found a needle in his arm."

Drug addictions run in a progression. Does anyone know how this addiction started? What was the drug that got him addicted, and caused him to eventually be on heroin? Did he start with heroin, or something else? And, even with the money he had, and trips to rehab, why was he not able to kick an addiction that ultimately ended his life?

Clearly the only solution is to legalize Heroin. Then he could get the help he needs and take the drugs in safe and hygienic manner.

Opiate addictions are diseases, not just addictions. It's a self inflicted disease, but its not "cureable" per say. The brain chemistry changes, etc, there is always a craving for that opiate. Some people just can't get passed that, although with $ there is no reason not to take suboxone or subsolve to keep you off opiates.

It was probably a hot dose (drug more pure) addicts always want to push the limits and
it cost him . I don't feel much of a loss in my world . Had millions and died with a needle
in his arm ................mommy musta been mean to him as a child I guess.

Don't underestimate the effects that childhood trauma, or any trauma, can have on addiction.

Could be the opposite as well - maybe opiates are the only way he could replicate the feeling of total love and joy that a child feels from Mom.

Thanks Tim , I understand about childhood abuse more than I want to tell.
I was addicted to opiates hydrocodone in particular It took a lot of counseling
and work on my part to finally put them down. Most of the staunch conservatives
are quick to make fun of Hollywood types , Hoffman had some issue to stick
a needle in his arm , Just like a girl from a Texas town named Janis Joplin ,
who on the week she died several others did too with uncut pure heroin that
was given them by the dope dealer..........this actor knew darn well what he
was doing regardless of his childhood traumas . At some point you HAVE to
talk personal responsibility ..........Right Tim ? thanks for asking .....

I'm not sure why that would be something to laugh about. YMOV


Reality can be a real problem with people making a living pretending to be someone else. Very sad really.

Maybe I should have more compassion for rich Hollywood types addicted to drugs. Frankly I have no idea who he even is, never heard of him before this.

You know it's really the GOP's fault.

If the GOP would only let Obama raise taxes on the rich then he would not have had enough money to OD. The most he could afford would give him a strong headache.
