I always enjoy his work.  I saw PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN on broadway playing the older son in "Long Day's Journey Into Night"


Good night PHILIP, we will all miss you.

OK, maybe it's too soon, but I'm gonna say it anyway:  I have simply never understood why these people who make more money than I will ever earn in a lifetime and are adored by their many fans can't leave the drugs alone.
He was a talented actor and his death was both tragic and unnecessary.

Pretty much how I feel.  Damn shame and terrific actor obviously, but at the same time I feel like "What the hell were you thinking?!".

The thing about addiction...doesn't matter how rich, poor, or race you are.

Plus, he was an addict when poor. It's always hiding in the corner of your mind.

He left behind three kids too. I feel no pity for him. His kids, for sure, but not him. Selfish bastard.  Thumbdown

That's exactly it.  If they're adored by millions, fabulously rich, and engaged in a craft they're passionate about, yet they STILL need drugs, can you imagine the scope and scale of the demons within them?

Of course, I can't say if it is exactly like that with Hoffman, but if it's something like clinical severe depression, I can tell you your life experiences, support systems, friends, family, children, possessions, career, spirituality, counseling - sometimes (often, really) none of it makes any difference at all.  Then the fact that it makes no difference perversely makes you feel worse.  And all it takes is one time injecting too much for it to be done.

It's...kinda like that.  I've dealt with both depression and addiction in my life.  And indeed, you really do feel guilty and feel like total sh*t for doing it.  But the demons one must face, sadly, well.  I can't say whether the depression led to the addiction, or vice versa, although I recall being quite depressed before I even had my first hit of substances.

People can get help.  Go to rehab, do AA/NA.  At the end of the day, no matter your support group, that demon you face, whether it's alcohol, heroin, depression, cocaine, etc., it sitting in the corner of your mind, staring at you, mocking you. 

Oftentimes, people pick up again assuming they can use the same amount they used when they were 'active' in their addiction.  Essentially, if you did $400 of cocaine in an 8 hour period and went twenty years before using again, you think "I can still do that.  I know my limits."  You can't.  Your body re-adjusts.  I've had NUMEROUS friends and acquaintances die this way. 

I'm glad I'm still here.

I agree....he was pretty cool in Twister. I liked his work and I hate it when people with talent and such promise throw it away. Bluesad

Yes,I'm fine....as long as I don't look too closely.
