I have an uncle with lung cancer, I've talked to him about it, but he says he doesn't want to stop smoking, even though he knows that he's likely going to die.
It's just not as simple as you think, dude.
Balance is the key. There's lots of things that if misused, even in a small scale, will fuck you up. That's basically the reason of why I don't do any drugs: I know that I might end up losing control of it and it's just not worth it.
Please don't go around talking like this, specially if you don't know what you're saying.
I'm gonna go to hell for posting that picture.
Shouldn't be surprising, yet I kinda was surprised.
You don't need to be a genius to work out that doing drugs = addiction = death, hence the lack of sympathy.
It's not like I'm not sad for her and her family, but it's still her fault.
What a waste of talent.
I've seen 9-year-olds die from crack OD, don't come to my face and tell me they knew exactly where they were going and why they were going. People that reach this level of drug abuse are very often psychologically destroyed.
People just lose control of their lives with this kind of shit, dudes. They often aren't conscious of the consequences.
Thats like saying someone who smokes a cigarette once a month or so deserves to die, its not going to ruin your life or give you lung cancer.
of course heroin is more potentially dangerous than cigarettes, but it`s intirely possible to use it in a responsible manner.
I can tell by your avatar that you are already biased on the side of illegal drug use, so I doubt anything anyone will say will persuade that this was not a tragedy and should not be mourned in any great fashion.
In my opinion, she was dead from the moment she lit that first spliff, or snorted that first line.
Hitler killing 6 million jews is understandable because he thought he was bettering the human race, it isn't excusable though.
Winehouse was nothing more than a fool, she had no reason to do drugs, and she certainly had no excuse.
Your avatar is at least relevant to the discussion, and it shows that you already have a clear bias. The fact that I watch a certain TV show says nothing about my views on drug use.
And I did not say that anyone who does drugs is going to die of it, I said that people, in my opinion are considered dead from the moment they take it up. Who knows, they may turn their life around, and get clean.
Deaths through drug abuse should not be classed as particularly sad, or surprising.
