Addictions, Risk, Suffering



Not a common state for either one of us.  We were working on our book when the phone alert from CNN announced the tragic death of Phillip Seymour Hoffman of a heroin overdose. He was clean for years, relapsed and now he’s gone at forty-six.

One of our greatest actors. Father of three young children. His best years clearly ahead of him.

Heroin takes another soul.



“The mentality and behavior of drug addicts and alcoholics is wholly irrational until you understand that they are completely powerless over their addiction and unless they have structured help, they have no hope.”

~ Russell Brand
