Amy Winehouse this time. I say good riddance and hopefully people learn from her mistakes. Stop being stupid.

And this isn't a mourning thread. This is a " We all saw this train coming a long time ago" thread.

A loss of life is never something to laugh about....she had a serious drug problem and it ended up taking her life.

Doesn't mean she was a bad person.

I know a lot of people hooked on various drugs and it's not as easy as quitting, it's an every day struggle for them.

She had it all and couldn't handle the fame. But the fact that she was addicted to drugs and couldn't defeat it, doesn't mean she was a bad person.

I don't know much about her, other than she was pretty messed up on drugs and she is a singer.

It's a shame anytime someone in their 20s goes before their time.

She died because she had an endless supply of enablers. It takes a network of people to sustain an addiction to the point of death. The same network acts all sad and shocked when the addict dies.

There is no doubt about that, she was a train wreck.

Yep....these celebrities and athletes all surround themselves with 'yes people' who won't tell them no and will get them what they want instead of giving them some tough love.

Michael Jackson is the best example of this.

They tend to have the most enablers simply because money and fame. That said, codependency networks are required to sustain every addict. Usually it's the family under false impression that they are keeping their loved one out of trouble.

First off its sad RIP. I never get why famous people have trouble with addiction. I would think even if a groupie did drugs and famous person said, that's not my thing they'd respect it and not offer again. I would think they would be glad just to hang with a famous person.

An addiction is never an easy thing to break, sure, but that should be more incentive to never try it. Instead, people want to think they can just try them once or do it because everyone else is and not consider the consequences.

Not sure why anyone would feel bad for her. This is exactly what she wanted.

Wow, it's often at 27 years old, isn't it? Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Pigpen, Kurt Cobain, now Amy Winehouse, dead at 27. I was going to put Shannon Hoon in there but apparently he made it less than a month past 28.

Because a lot of people think that once they get fame and fortune that all their problems will go away. They think that little hole in their heart can be filled with anything in this world. And when it isn't they look to drugs, drinks, women or men, or anything they can think of.

It's still very sad. My friend's son is a heroin addict. But thanks to his so-called healthcare providers, he will always be an addict. All they did was switch him to methadone (which is even more addicting). He will take the oxycodone, or whatever else his "pain" doctors and psychiatrists give him and grind it up and inject it. My sister-in-law is an addict who overdosed on her morphine; again supplied by her "pain" doctor. As a healthcare provider myself, I am shocked at the free-flow of highly addictive drugs by many "respectable" sources. I feel like most of society acts unknowingly as primary enablers. It may be more prevalent in the entertainment industry... but is most definitely not limited to there.

At the end of the day, one has to evaluate what's most valuable. Until it's not drugs, I have no appreciation for them as a human being. It's calloused but there's people dying honorable deaths everyday; I don't have time to spend caring about someone who kills themselves and, quite frankly, get offended when people give them more consideration in death than they apparently gave others in life.

No need to say thankful, it's not a quality that just falls from the heavens.

Say you're PROUD that you're not into drugs.

Wasted life.

If heroin, cocaine, or meth is around...don't even think about touching the stuff. All three are a quick road to one or both outcomes:

1) complete and utter devastation, featuring such hits as "retarded intellectual development", "retarded emotional development", "chronic disease", and "prolonged prison term(s)". With such peripheral benefits as "child neglect", "alienation of family", "ruined marriage". "spiritual depravity", and "long-term depression/associated mental illness"

2) Death


edit...Oops...forgot Meth alley. That's another outcome, possibly worse than death.
