Fatal Addiction

Phillip Seymour Hoffman died this week.  An article this morning explains that the brain is re-programmed by addiction so severely that even after YEARS in recovery, the addict can return to similar levels of use almost immediately.  Scary.  Terrifying.  Sad. 

Addiction is a sad and terrible disease.  I didn’t always love Hoffman’s acting.  He threw himself into roles and I will admit his portrayal of people was sometimes frightening to me.  I was supremely creeped out by his character in Boogie Nights, but loved him in Twister. 

Today I feel sad for the loss of a talented man, a loving father and an addict, who got high one last time.
