Between this and all the LiLo drama, I am constantly reminded of how hard it is to get and stay clean and sober. I can't imagine doing it in the fishbowl of Hollywood, although that environment seems to breed this kind of lifestyle in the first place. I found this list of celebrities who've died from prescription drug overdose, whether accidentally or intentionally: 18 Celebrities. Here's another list of Notable People who've died from alcoholism or complications from alcohol use: Alcoholism. And one more of celebrities who've die from alcohol: More Celebrities.
I find it fascinating & disturbing & heartbreaking.
