Top 10 famous celebrities who had their life ruined or cut short because of substance abuse Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg For copyright matters please contact us at: [email protected] Other Videos You Might Like 10 Cute Kids Who Aged Horribly https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVaMtCi9Xw0 10 Shocking Things People Smuggled Inside Their Bodies https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mu89nxu9JBU Most Embarrassing Moments Caught Live On The Red Carpet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBy-s8fTsPs Description: There seems to be an all too strong and unfortunate correlation between celebrity and drug culture. The pressure of life in the public eye, coupled with the ever-plentiful nature of substances that are readily available to those that can afford them, have made for a deadly cocktail on more than one occasion when it comes to Hollywood stars. For celebrities, as with anyone else, addiction is a serious, chronic and debilitating illness that can prove to be extremely difficult to treat, not to mention recover from. It certainly can’t help that there is an enhanced level of scrutiny and attention placed on those within the public eye. While addiction can make its mark on anyone and doesn’t discriminate based on social status, celebs face the additional unique challenges of fame, stardom, wealth and the constant pressure to perform and uphold a carefully cultivated public image. For those that do choose to cope with the pressures of fame by turning to drugs, it can also be a slippery slope that proves difficult to avoid. For one thing, there is the typical presence of representative glad-handlers who will be reluctant to offer any words of sobering truth to their cash cow. Then there’s also the demanding schedule commitments that could make seeking help and pursuing rehabilitation seem like inconvenient afterthoughts. There may be another facet of celebrity that lends itself to a more addictive frame of mind. Those who develop drug habits often do so seeking a level of thrill and excitement that they are otherwise unable to achieve. This thrill-seeking mindset seems at least somewhat connected to the drive of entertainers who can use the dynamic, explosive environment of the stage or screen to play out their own desires for exhilaration. Celebrity drug counselor Dr. Drew Pinsky subscribes to this theory, believing that some people are genetically wired to pursue an excitable environment, with both drugs and widely watched performance art serving as plausible outlets for that. The possible explanations for the outsized relationship between celebrities and drug addiction doesn’t offer much comfort in light of a steady slew of young stars that drugs have taken prematurely in recent years. In just the past half decade, drugs have contributed to the untimely deaths of actors like Philip Seymour Hoffman and Cory Monteith and musicians like Amy Winehouse and Chris Kelly while serving as a possible contributing factor in countless other passings. The drug-related death of a celebrity is no more or less tragic than that of a less famous fellow human, but the publicity generated from a star’s struggles with substance abuse can shine light on a still-rampant issue in a unique and potentially effective way. While so many dealing with drug problems may suffer in silence, the intense scrutiny attached to celebrities has provided a better understanding of just how things fell apart for certain drug-addicted entertainment icons. With that in mind, here are the incredible, harrowing stories of 10 celebrities whose careers and lives were derailed on account of their drug addictions.

In 2016 I was cheated on by my first girlfriend and I went through severe depression. I was addicted to gambling and a friend introduced me to cocaine. and I learn that cocaine is very easy to become addicted to when you're depressed because it makes you feel so powerful. January this year I meant my now fiance and she changed my life around. She is my best friend and the feelings I got one I'm with her are way better than any drug has ever made me feel.

I am so tired of these entitled, spoiled rotten celebs turning to drugs and then telling everyone how fucking hard their lives are. Here's an idea, why don't you not start a drug habit and just keep making money instead? Seems pretty simple.

Oh well look here. Another misinformation and disinformation YouTube channel that doesn't get its facts right. I guess I'll be blocking this channel too. Figures it's followed by the masses. 11 million people believe whatever they're spoon fed. Drugs also didn't directly ruin some of these people. You're just categorizing and labeling on a bias. Thumbs down.

Rich people with money a lot of money careers famous and beautiful and for what.! All those of things did not stopped them for not do drugs and reckless crazy lives..! And at the end die or destroy their careers/names for ever.! U can tell me that poor people do drugs and destroy their lives and die too but for the rich and famous is just a drag they have it all money, cars, houses, girls, pools all and they end up dead or broken..! If they stay in the correct road do proper friendships and u know be careful or do good with their money they would not go down that road.! At least they have a change to survive, poor people they don't have a change..! Anyways RIP for some of them that are not with us and for the others that are still with us all of the best..! Linchey and Amanda was gorgeous back then in an another life time..! :(

Why is it lime light? Why can’t it be lemon light? Or mix it up with a lemon lime light? And has this channel ever see soaked in bleach? What the hell call a spade a spade at least half of the time celebrity’s overdose it is murder. Trust me at one time I was incarcerated with 8 of the most high profile murders in Pittsburgh’s history and do to me and my knowledge of psychology I became friends and were trusted by all of them I got many crazy but real confessions and motives, so overtime I have spotted many things to back up what I had just said.

Most of this is such *BULLSHIT*, the illuminati, the "industry" is killing these ppl. Mk Ultra/Monarch apparently isn't indefinitely undetectable so when the stars become less lucrative slaves, along w/ whistleblowers, "the richest" "overdose" or "suicide" aka murder them. Ur channel is disgusting & u know it.

Micheal Jackson on his last phone call before he sadly died he said people wanted to KILL him...They wanted him dead because of how he has been exposing the elites secrets and the people at the top evil doings and plans. His contract was coming to end with Sony which he has made billions of money for so maybe also a reason too for his death. The doctor was just a front for the true killers here.. such a tragedy to Michael's life from a young age till his adult years he has suffered... May his soul rest in peace!!💖 All this are true not lying here you can even watch his last secrets phone call and speeches it is all there!!
