must be a nightmare for them.

also i saw an interview with him and he was being all serious about when he quit drinking/went sober…at 22!!
probably had like 2 or 3 hangovers/lads holidays and thought fuck it.

dont like when i read about people 'battling demons' etc and its just stuff like that.

Having a couple of hangovers is hardly the reason to admit addiction to yourself and become sober. cosco. You can be an addict at any age and escalate from some heavy nights out to daily drinking and substance abuse.

Great article here - http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/medical_examiner/2014/02/philip_seymour_hoffman_s_drug_death_the_science_of_addiction_recovery_and.html

He stated in an interview that he had, and checked himself into rehab to deal with it.

My old man, gave up about 10 years ago. Me when I was 24, so 6 years. Its a brutal game, had a couple of mates who have done the same thing - started boozing / taking drugs again and been dead within a year.
