My photo
I am a girl/woman/human who has random thoughts. Sometimes you can find me here rambling, other times i might have useful stuff to say. For the most part, my friends and family can see what I might be up to in the days events. Or, for sake of sakes, its all made up... only i know.. and MAYBE a select few of you! Either way~ I am an American living in Australia. Oh, and any photo you see on this blog IS NOT FOR YOUR USE. If I have taken the photo myself or have permission to use it, YOU CAN NOT USE IT FOR YOURSELF. So be warned... and just dont use my damn photos.

Dabble & Dis?

INFdaily.comCoreyHaim
Everyone seems to be so shocked at the death of hollywood stars lately who are in their 20-40’s.  Really.  I dont get what the shock factor is. Sorry you died, yes, I do agree. But, when you start popping pills like they are a fashion item, sooner or later, the chances of it catching up with you just might become reality.
I know, a bit of a hypocrite. I have dabbled. Too much. I saw things I wish I never in my life had seen. I have lost too many people to such horrible things. At some point, you become numb to it. You hear of another one gone. You feel sad, but at the end of it, you just thank your little lucky stars you escaped with your life. Then you kiss the ground and hope you keep on kicking for a bit longer.  Its gruelling to lose someone who has had an interest in your life, but thats how the dice roll sometimes.
Hollywood & money & pills. Seem to go hand in hand. I feel bad a mother lost her son. That a friend lost his pal. That a puppy lost its owner. But, if none of you wanted to do anything to help (and dont kid me.. I was there.. I may not have wanted help.. but an addict is not powerful unless you give them power.. so you can overcome them and provide help. Your just using it as a cop-out), anyway, I digress. If you wanted to help, you should have and you could have. Instead, I have to see how the people are killing themselves and then hear you feel helpless.
Are we all stuck on reality TV so much that no one can open their eyes to whats in front of them? Or, maybe we need to watch the reality of a ‘star’ go down the drain daily and then end up having a heart attack from the pills or lines or whatever… watch it on TV, every moment… then will people do something about all of this?

Hmmm, interesting take. I think a lot of people, especially those spoiled by fame, power and money, pull a Tiger Woods ("I felt I was entitled") or a Michael Jackson (if they didn't do what he wanted, he pushed them away). I think (hope?) most people have at least one person in their life who will fight for them but sometimes that person can only give so much before their life is overshadowed by the addict. Other people cannot force someone to stay sober so at some point the responsibility needs to rest on the addict's shoulders. Just my opinion.

It's sad and it's tragic. I don't know if I agree about: But, if none of you wanted to do anything to help (and dont kid me.. I was there.. I may not have wanted help.. but an addict is not powerful unless you give them power.. so you can overcome them and provide help. Your just using it as a cop-out), because once a person is of legal age you can't force them to do anything. I've been there. My Mom has been rescueing her sister for years now and is continuously betrayed by her beyond belief..and still she's there for her each and every time. I don't think I could do it. A lot of people tried to help CH, even the "other" Corey. Dr. Dru offered help, granted it was a reality show, but a job mixed with some rehab? How could you turn that down? LOL. Sorry. On my soap box now. Toodles.
