Celebrity addiction is nothing new, but over the decades we have seen celebs spiral out of control while battling their addiction to alcohol, hard-core narcotics, prescription drugs, and even sex.
Some celebs who have dabbled in drugs and abused alcohol, have overcome their pitfalls by admitting that they are indeed addicts and in need of help. Other celebs have been in a topsy turvy spiral of wellness and defeat, mania and depression, insanity and rationality, while battling to control their inner demons.
Recently, pictures of Whitney Houston’s teenage daughter, Bobbi Kristina have surfaced on the internet of Bobbi allegedly snorting cocaine. Bobbi Kristina adamantly denies that she was doing coke, yet people can’t help but think about the fact that both her parents suffered from addiction. It’s quite possible that Bobbi Kristina too could have an addiction to either drugs or alcohol. But with the way so many celebs are handled and treated, it is possible that no one will know for sure if Bobbi Kristina is in trouble until her life hits rock bottom.
The media loves to sensationalize and make drug addiction an alluring right of passage that ‘cool’ people must go through and overcome. The problem is that people die. Countless celebs have died from a drug overdose, and at the end of the day, when the hilarious Twitter rants no longer exist, and when the funny drunken videos no longer go viral, we all realize that ‘damn’ this person wasn’t just an invincible fictional character.

If no one else will say it…GlobalGrind will. Yes, Charlie is a ‘winner.’ Yes, it’s quite possible that Charlie Sheen may have ‘tiger blood’ and ‘Adonis DNA.’ And yes, everything Charlie has been saying for the past week has been quite entertaining, but at the end of the day, Charlie suffers from an illness. It all seems funny now, until God forbid, Charlie doesn’t wake up tomorrow. Then everyone will be wondering how they could have helped Charlie, instead of praising his crazed bantering, and relishing in his apparent pain. Charlie has a problem. He has an addiction and possibly a mental illness. And most importantly, Charlie is a human being just like everyone else.
Sipping ‘sizzurp,’ smoking dope, and shooting heroin are all sicknesses. Sicknesses that shouldn’t be laughed at or reenacted for com
