its amazing that nobody here has heard of anxiety and depression. and also that nobody cares to think for more than 2 seconds before concluding that someone who died from drugs is automatically an idiot. open yo damn minds! people suffering depression and addiction exhibit symptoms that seem illogical to healthy peeps. its some fucked up shit. once youre addicted youre FUCKED. You have just given yourself a mental illness. So yall might say, ok, well then someone is dumb for getting addicted in the first place. Well, thats true it is careless, but sometimes people just arent able to see it before its too late. I know a dude that used to say shit like "wtf, how could you get addicted to something and not realize?" well, he just got out of rehab for coke. Also, speculating sucks but id wager that ledger got those anti anxiety pills prescribed to him at first for legitimate anxiety and then the use got out of control. Thats how i got addicted to xanax for over a year. oh, and Heartless, speaking of drug addictions i was withdrawling from a weeklong opiate binge when i posted all that shit so i was obviously very pissy. I still wholeheartedly disagree with you, but hey, fuck it, right? i guess we can just agree to disagree and all that trite shit. also on a side note im very interested in the tox reports for ledger since all they found at his place were benzos. those are really, really, really hard to die from. They just dont depress breathing enough to kill. I suppose if youre mixing them that might change.
