People with cancer don't get a damn choice to begin with. People with addiction do.


EDIT: You know, on a side note, I hope I never run into you in public somewhere. Having dealt with a father who died from cancer, the absolute disrespect and lack of having a brain... I just hope I don't see you.

You seriously are going compare addiction to cancer? Calling addiction a disease is an excuse so whatever every yahoo who has an addiction too can feel it's not their fault. Someone with cancer doesn't get the choice, you choose to shoot up and if you overdose well let the chips fall where they may.

Enjoyed watching him as an actor and it's very sad anytime a life is cut short by addiction. In his case it is a tragic waste because he was so talented. RIP PSH.

Hate it. Enjoyed the guy.

Pray for the partner and three children he left behind. This will forever be challenging for them to reconcile.

You are exactly right. Hoffman had no choice but stick that needle in his arm. From birth, he was destined to have that needle in his arm. There was no avoiding it. It's a disease. what a freaking joke of an excuse. I guess fat people have diseases where they can't put down the spoons, huh?

I'm not saying he deserved to die because he did drugs. However I have no sympathy for him. He knew the consequences of his actions and chose to shoot up. Condolences to his family.

I dipped two cans a day for years. Woke up one day and decided I wanted to stop, and did. I've never missed it or had an urge to start back since.

I realize I may be an outlier, or the exception to the rule, but I also "tried to stop" four different times. Not until I made the decision to stop, did I actually stop.

I think people are more powerful, and more in control, than they give themselves credit for.

It's not about quitting, it's about never starting to begin with.

Please inform me, what disease made you use opiates in the first place? It seems like you couldn't be addicted to something until you try it... try it on your own accord... weird. That's like no disease i've ever heard.

Exactly.
Whatever man. You wouldn't know never going through what I've been through. I was prescribed oxymoron for my back pain in high school and started buying off the street once I no longer got a prescription. I got addicted to something I was prescribed. Im not arguing with you and starting a huge argument just like we did in that music thread. Addiction is a disease period. That's all there is to it.

You got addicted by not following what your doctor recommended. You're exactly right, I haven't been through what you have, because I chose not too. You chose differently. "Disease" is an excuse, period. that's all there is to it.
