I am really tired of allowing some of these celebrities to indulge themselves in everything they can think of. I was a single mother with 4 children and no real career. I was making 750.00 a month clear. My rent was $500 and my car payment was $200 a month. Try raising 4 kids and all their activities on these wages. I did go to school and became a nurse. I take care of the dying on a daily basis. These patients would give it all to not die. I never turned to drinking, drugs, or prostitution. I had it rough but I made it. I say to these celebs – get your act together. Pray and things will be different. I don’t mean to be harsh but and I know addiction is terrible. It’s really hard for me to go along with all this. I had many times when I did not know where my children’s meals were coming from. You can’t just think of yourself and instant gratification. Everyone who is around the addict needs to get them help at any cost!! even if you lose their friendship, it will be worth it because they might just be able to live!!

I do not know whats true, whats not. But I am mad at Cory for doing this. He put up a facade infront of others that he was trying to get better but in Canada, he did what he wanted to do. He didnt even for a second think about Lea’s devastation. Now she can never be the same again. She will move on but she wont be what she used to be. I cried for Cory but now im super pissed at him. :(

I’m sorry Demi but coming from someone who battled alcohol addiction and chronic depression for years, I can honestly say that when it comes down to it I have always been in control of my life. Yes, the addiction and the temptation can be strong, however at the end of the day I am the one choosing to pick up that bottle of booze or not. And as hard as it may be I know what will happen to my life if I decide to drink again. I told myself one day that would be the last time I’d use after seeing what was happening to my life. I feel ever since Demi came out with her bipolar issues she swears she’s an expert at the field of addiction. You’re not the only one honey and as far as I’m concerned being bipolar is very different from being an addict with no other mental issues.

I’m sorry but you obviously know nothing at all about Demi Lovato’s life so please get your facts straight before you make silly comments like that… If you actually knew anything about her, you’d know that she went into treatment for cutting, eating disorders and addictions. While she was in treatment, she THEN found out she was bipolar. She did battle addictions, and she had other mental disorders, so stop judging how much she knows about addictions. She battled them herself, so she knows as well as you. Also, I think you’re forgetting that people deal with addictions and mental disorders in different ways, no 2 people respond in the same way.

Oh for crying out loud. Enough making excuses for people and their bad decisions.

No doubt addiction is hard to battle, but Cory made the choice to begin taking drugs, which leads to addiction, all on his own. I’ll give him more sympathy than most because it began as a child as opposed to as an adult, and children deserve the benefit of the doubt (unlike adults). His parents, on the other hand, have a lot to answer for: Good parents do not produce drug-taking children.

But stop calling this a “disease.” It is not. It is a personal choice that one makes that unloads an avalanche that becomes harder to stop the longer it rolls down the hill. But it can be stopped.

Addiction most definitely IS a disease. For the most part it is the person’s choice to start (I knew of someone who died from an addiction that started when she was forcibly injected with heroin) but have you ever thought of the reasons people start it? For the most part it’s not because they think it’s “cool”. It’s because they’re trying to become numb to a certain pain they’re feeling. Take Demi for example. She was sexually abused at a very young age and was born with bi-polar disorder. These things that she COULDN’T control gave her so much pain she was willing to try anything to take it away.

Disease: the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.

You can’t just tell someone to get over an addiction. It is a disease of the mind. Telling someone to just get over an addiction is like telling someone to just get over having cancer. You can’t. You need help. And now with Cory you can see how deadly and dangerous it can be.

Everyone has a reason as to why they make a choice. But it doesn’t justify a BAD choice.

Like I said, Cory was a child, so I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt UNLIKE ADULTS.

Adults who make bad decisions must endure the consequences of those decisions and deserve no sympathies.

Weakness and stupidity are not excuses.

it takes courage.
not everyone is blessed with courage.
why would you abuse drugs if you have everything? a healthy person wouldn’t.
a person with a disease would.

Total nonsense. This is not a disease..it is a choice. Cory made this choice for himself. He loved himself over others. He decided drugs were more important than honor, love, setting an example and simply being a responsible adult. But, let’s also have scorn for those around him on Glee, including his co-actors, producers, etc. who all knew this was going on but decided a druged-up Cory was better for ratings than telling him to shape up or lose his job. How pathetic, truly pathetic that his alleged friends and co-stars can only express grief through their PR firms. How about coming out and making a statement…show you care…and don’t fake it.

I don t think promoters put it in your throat…there is always a choice and a responsability for the one consuming addictive subs. I also think that letting go of your part of responsability ( the promoters made me, this a disease…etc) won t help you at all in the battle against addiction. People must feel empowered not helpless after rehab. But if you think you cannot help yourself no one will be able to do it in your place. It does not mean we have to be judgeful with the people living this nightmare, but they need to realize their responsability ( not fault, it isn t a trial..) and what their actions can cause. Playing the victim makes us the victim.

Exactly. She’s making it sound like they made them swallow it. You can always say no, no matter how hard it is. It comes down to how much one respects oneself. Who cares what other people say if you say no to them. It’s your life. One is ALWAYS in control. Stop with the excuses!

you’re kidding me. people are weaker than others. but hes a human. and humans make mistakes. its a disease and its a kind of disease that like when people die and or suffer. yall are making it sound like he wanted to get addicted but he didnt. if your’e gonna blame anyone blame the kids who gave it to him. he was young and vulnerable. and the fact that your talking about him badly means you have no character cause hes DEAD. have some respect!

Demi and Cory both had a lot of things going on in their lives, and they felt so down that they used things such as drugs/alcohol etc as a way to cope with everything that was going on. So, YES they did do it willingly, but when you’re an addict/in a bad way and someone is practically waving alcohol and drugs in your face as a temporary cure, I can totally understand why they would take it.

No one is playing a victim here. Cory was a victim of his addiction, which is of course a symptom of a psycological disease. He didn`t wanted to die or ruin his ife but was simply unable to accept the fact that he needed help. Some times it´s hard to accept the need of help, especially for someone who lives in the pubblic eye. He was afraid of the pubblic`s reaction and maybe even of his girlfriends when admitting that he has to return to rehab. Not to forget the pressure of not being able to return to his series in time in order to save his job. He tried to overcome his desease but at the end he was for a moment to weak. He simply was a human being which deserves respect, Please stop being judgeful. We all can fail and we all have our demons to fight !!!

He was another victim of 12 Step cults and AA. You must first admit you are powerless, and then you must choose a god and pray to it to remove the cravings to use. Only problem is, this process can take years, and in the meantime you are completely powerless to the drug. For a susceptive person like an actor this belief can be deadly. He recently played the role of a drug addicted prostitute, so he might have convinced himself that he had a fatal disease. And then fiction becomes fact.

Addiction isn’t a disease. It’s a myth.

Sorry now, but Demi has a valid point! She suffered with bulimia as well as other things. It’s not as if she woke up one day and said, “hmm, I think I’m going to make myself throw up to be skinny.” No. That’s not how addicts mind’s work. She has bi-polar and was bullied about her weight, so she was pressured to get rid of the weight. Similar situation for Cory. For whatever reason, he began taking drugs, which became an addiction. Now fair enough, from day 1 when he first took drugs, THAT was a choice, but the addiction developed and from then on, the choice was out of ontrol. He went and got help twice, but temptation is just as dangerous as the addiction itself. So no, its not always a “choice”. It’s a mistake, led to an uncontrollable disease. Demi is also entitles to her opinion, as you are, as is every other writer. So don’t be bashing others opinions on how they agree with Demi, just because your view is different. Respect people.

Totally agree.

This Shannon idiot is the problem with society. It IS a choice. Do not take drugs in the first place, and you won’t have to worry about the perils of addiction.

And how about these drug users respecting the rest of society, who often have to pay the price for their bad decisions (like their medical care when they can’t afford it)?

I’ll excuse children, but that’s it. Cory started as a kid and so I’ll blame his clearly horrible parents instead.

Adults who willingly open the door to drugs DESERVE the consequences they get. Don’t make excuses for them, and let’s be a whole lot stricter with these people. Maybe a few people will think twice before even playing around with drugs. No sympathy to those fools who do.
