Phillip Seymour Hoffman Knew Drugs Would Kill Him
According to TMZ reports:
Philip Seymour Hoffman was on a heroin binge 6 weeks before he died, and told friends he feared he was destined to fatally OD … TMZ has learned.
Sources Hoffman confided in tell us … back in December Hoffman told them he had started injecting himself with heroin and couldn’t kick it. Hoffman said he would kick it for a few days and then fall off the wagon.
We’re told he went back to AA in a desperate attempt to clean up … but much to his great frustration it didn’t work.
During the last 6 weeks he often look disheveled and dirty. At one point someone asked him how bad his problem was, and he responded, “If I don’t stop I know I’m gonna die.”
We’re told Hoffman was also drinking excessively … which opened the door to many bad decisions when it came to heroin use.
Ironically and sadly, we’re told Hoffman went to AA meetings over the last 4 years and was considered a “guru,” because he had been sober for so long. Hoffman would give inspirational talks to people who attended.
R.I.P. Phillip, you’ll surely be missed by many.
