COREY HAIM Died of drug over dose or that is what the latest reports are saying. His mother says that its not drugs but an enlarged heart and fluid on the lungs that killed him.
When ever a celebrity dies if there are drugs anywhere around or if at any time in there life they had a problem with drugs... Then when they die its DRUGS!!! Now it could be said that to assume its drugs is unfair and rude. But the truth is that if someone has had a problem with drugs in the past, it can come up again at anytime.
A while ago I would have said that this statement was not justified and that you can't judge someones present by their past. But I have had several friends that were heavily into drugs in there past and then they became clean for years. Then out of the blue they started doing drugs again.
I know that not every one has a relapse.... however that is why they say in meetings Hi my name is so and so and I am an alcoholic or drug addiction. Because even if a person no longer does drugs they once did and the urge is always there.
I hate that drugs can ruin our lives.

Here is the story. I found it at this website
I don’t know how to begin to thank you and your colleauges at Cliffside Malibu for helping to return our son to us. Only you – and anyone reading this letter whose son or daughter is addicted can possibly understand the pain, the nightmares and sense of hopelessness all parents suffer watching their son or daughter slowly kill themselves. For six years, we tried everything in our power and spent more money than I ever earned trying to get our 17 year old son sober: six different drug rehabs in the belief that finally, this one would work; countless therapists; two interventions and finally a rapid detox program that was supposed to eradicate the craving for most drugs. Nothing worked. So these years were filled with brief moments of elation, thinking our son finally licked the problem only to go through the horrible realization that, once again, we were back to square one. Each time he replapsed, it only got worse: he stole, lied, was verbally abusive and totalled three cars. Even the therapists gave up on our son. But we didn’t. It took many drug rehabs, many attempts, many fact finding missions to finally find Cliffside Malibu, the right place for our son. Sadly, all the brochures for drug rehabs and sober living say all the right things – things parents want to hear and believe in.
I can only hope most parents searching for help don’t have to go through the drug rehab journey I went through. Which is why I take great joy in writing this letter, and saying to any parent reading this, to take a look at Cliffside, talk to Richard or Jay, listen to them, pay a visit and seriously consider sending your precious cargo there. The physical setting is beautiful, calm, peaceful and condusive to recovery. And the staff knows what they are doing. They have a simple but profound understanding of the nature and effects of addiction. They know how to modify the dysfunctional behavior that is an integral part of all addicts. My son now has over a year of sobriety – something I never thought possible. It’s what I asked the people at Cliffside to give him: Just one year and he’d have a shot at living. They gave it to him.
* Today Manny’s son has 2 1/2 years of sobriety.
I thought this was amazing. I hope we can hear more and more stories like this one.
The second is that I think we relate to celebrities. I think that we see them so much and we watch them all the time on TV, movies, etc... I know that from personal experience that I have some shows that I always watch and the actors become friends or like family. I know that I talk about TV actors from shows like Bones, House, Clean House, etc... I say things about them like I would a family member or a friend.
So that is why I made this blog. Because I think that drugs have touch a lot of our lives either from personal experiences or through friends or family. Now through talking about and hearing about who is on drugs or the latest celebrity drug gossip. I hope it will help so we know that we are not alone and hopefully we all learn something. Maybe share a few laughs, tears or something special.
