    There are more and more people (experts included) that do not consider addiction a disease at all. This is not meant to undermine the severity of addiction at all, but to classify it as a disease is simply wrong. It is a curable disorder - not a disease. Calling it a disease often takes away the power of the individual to take control of their problem. Many addicts lean on the word 'disease' as a crutch and an excuse not to change.

    I agree with rosebud,, people need to take responsibility for their actions. You cannot compare a disease like cancer to drug addiction. Drug addiction is merely people being too weak to resit the temptation. People need to deal with the problem and not use drugs to cope nor treat drugs as entertainment. Side Note, reading Demi's statement hurt my head.

    I'm not trying to undermine addiction as not being important, because the loss of Philip Seymour Hoffman was truly a great one and just a grand shame for the art of film and theater, but I fucking DESPISE how this girl makes everything about her. Anything that has to do with the loss of someone from addiction or someone battling it, she has to come out of the woodwork to comment because she needs attention since she's only known now for her problems. Don't belittle a man's death and the seriousness of drug addiction to something that makes it seem like you're the sole survivor and the savant of recovery when you're just using that struggle to sell your albums or keep you on people's radar. It sickens me.

    I agree!! DISEASE is the wrong word to use and has been mis-used for years..probably to sell more pills I imagine.

    Dumb bitch - a teenage girl's "eating disorder" makes her an expert on heroine addiction? Shut up!!!!!!!!!!

    Agreed Rosebud. Addiction isn't a disease, I always saw it as a weakness or disorder. I say this as a heavy abuser who gave up drugs no problem.

    Any form of addiction is a chemical imbalance in the brain that gets worse by the consumption of the chemicals in drugs. Though I agree that addicts need to take responsibility for their actions. Growing up watching my sister was a great lesson on what not to do in life.

    I can honestly say I am/was a fan of the boy, I mention all because I can't blame the others on something that they have nothing to do with. I have been reading comments for a while about how it's okay for the guys to be smoking pot, making fun of the authorities and name calling; just because they are 20 something…I'm sorry 20, 21, 22, it's not adulthood.
