    Mr. Hoffman's death is tragic, just as the death of all drug addicts is tragic. I don't feel sad or a sense of loss from his death because he chose his high-risk lifestyle that included injecting heroin into his body. Paying homage to his career morphs his life into a noble myth, the truth is seedy and unpleasant. So please, go watch one of his movies if that's what you want to remember, but please don't celebrate the life of a drug addict.

    I was greatly saddened to hear of Mr. Hoffman's passing, but please stop excusing this type of behavior by classifying it as a disease. The simple fact of the matter is that this so-called victim chose to seek out the object of his so-called disease, purchase it and shoot it into his veins. Surely if this poor decision had not been made in the first place all those many years ago, Mr. Hoffman and others like him could never have become addicts. These people all chose to expose themselves to these substances thereby causing their addictions. I don't buy dime bags of the flu – do you?
