Philip Seymour Hoffman Admitted His Addiction Issues Would Kill Him Shortly Before His Tragic Death

We just wish he could've gotten the help he needed.

Unfortunately, it's now too late for Philip Seymour Hoffman when it didn't need to be.

While he's struggled over the years with drug and alcohol addiction, it was as of late that things apparently really spiraled out of control.

It is reported that after trying to maintain sobriety, Philip had started injecting heroin again in December 2013. He had apparently then started going to AA, but nothing was helping the situation.

Things got so bad at one point, he was looking disheveled for the last six weeks, and we even hear he told someone close to him:

"If I don't stop I know I'm gonna die."

Sadly, those words are now true.

While it's reported his recent problems first began with drinking, it seems that opened the door to the drug abuse which appears to be the cause of his death.

We hope that anyone else struggling with these problems can seek the help they need.

And our thoughts are with Philip's loved ones.

    Oh. I thought you Americans had those facilities called "rehab", like the one where Chris Brown and Ke$ha are right now.
    So he didn't seek for help at all? Going to AA one or two times?
    Whatever. Who cares. I asked my husband if krokodil is a drug and he said "it's a poison"… so let people poison theirselves if they want to. I think this guy killed himself in purpose.

    It wasn't tragic, it may have been sad for some people but his death was at least obvious that it would happen with a drug addict. If he had cancer we would say it was tragic because the person has no control over it. Now you choose to do drugs and you can sure as hell choose to quit or at least go to rehab to try.

    Such gratuitus judgement I read here. Hopefully no one close to you will ever be affected by this 'Not TRAGIC', otherwise you might actually be compelled to call it a tragedy.

    Re: NinfaTurtle – Yes, many are ignorant to what causes addiction and understanding it…However, I have to say PSH was pathetic…leaving 3 young children is the tragic part…Many people who WANT to live cannot due to cancer…he clearly did not want to live…Help is out there and he did not work the program..sad, yes…but avoidable. I have people in my life that are addicts but go to meetings EVERY DAY and are in therapy several time a week…they are sober…it can be done.

    Re: yea yea – Yes it can be done, clearly he thought so too, for a while, as he had remained some 23 years sober.. I understand that this is a battle that needs to be fought on a daily basis. Having had to help save a young man from the claws of heroin a few years ago (and happy to report that he has been sober ever since), I often think of him, hoping that the sentiment of addiction gets weaker and weaker as time goes by.
    You know' I myself have been struggling to stop smoking cigarettes, using the love for my child and the death of people close to me as my ultimate encouragement, and I have found it very difficult even with these thoughts to enlighten me. I can imagine that in a moment of weakness and desesperation, even the love for his 3 children perhaps (surely) failed to do the trick unfortunately.

    The sad fact about addiction is it is a life long battle. you never stop being an addict even when you stop using drugs you just become a recovering addict, relapse can happen even years after sobriety. Even more sadly is less than 5% of heroin addicts actually recover. It only takes one taste for someone to become addicted to drugs, it seems unfair that someone only wants to experiment once and they are left battling for a lifetime.
    And for those of you saying he was a fool to be addicted to drugs, remember that addiction comes in all forms, eating, shopping, hording, gambling. Its a mental illness, the physical dependency goes away after a few weeks/months but the mental dependency takes a lot longer and is far harder to conquer.
