Did anybody watch it? Man it got me at the end and bummed my night. Addiction is a horrible thing and can get its grip on anybody. That poor guy had it rough as a child, came up in life and drank it all away and died.

Very Sad:(

Not a disease.

A disease is Lou Gehrig's, Lupis, Cancer, etc. We have no chance or choice when these will hit and debilitate you. It does not matter how healthy you are these will hit you and there is nothing you can do.

Alcohol, drugs, overeating, puking, yada yada all self indulged and all self administered......Not a disease a choice

They normally dont hold my attention for the full hour, but that show did. And in this case his "problem" caused the "disease" that ultimately caused his death.

Was it the one with Lawrence who had the tanning salons? I fell asleep and only say up to the point where they said he had cancer.

Yeah he died. In the last minute of the show where you read what happened they said he was asked to leave treatment after 30 days for not realizing his problem. Then he was sober for an additional 3 weeks and relapsed. I guess sometime this Feb. they found him dead in his home from esophogiel (Spelling) bleeding

Did you see the bruising all over his body? He was already diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver. Very sad.

At the point he was at it didn't matter. The guy used to be fit and health concious, but he got hooked on GHB (weight lifting suppliment) when it was legal to buy. When they banned it he turned to alcohol to help him relax and sleep. 2-3 liters of Vodka a day.......STRAIGHT, no chaser, no mix!

So the date rape drug will yoke ya up too??? Good to know. :)devil

Sounds like a kind of boring drug to be hooked on though... You spike your own drink and pass out for the night, hopefully after you take advantage of yourself... :D :D :D

That's what they say. What they were selling was a suppliment with GHB in it in small amounts.......somewhere along the line after they banned it, someone figured out how to make large quatities.

Rohypnol (sp?) or better know as Ruphies, were actually the drug of choice for date rapers...... Don't ask me how I know that!;)

Ruphies were made haredr to get so they started using GHB. My girl was drugged on night and we got the full tox lesson.
