He was too stupid to know that he was killing himself. Seems like the "hollywood" types are a little off thinking they are bullet proof.

You said it, what a bunch of morons. And the people who worship them are out of their minds. Self glorification through them. What a laugh....

Re: 80's Teen Actor Corey Haim Dies of Overdose at 38

Yes, I feel for his mother. You need to take care of yourself. Not just for your own longevity, but for people who love you. God bless Corey's mother.

As a person that has struggled with prescritpion drug abuse for over 10 years now, I can totally understand Corey Haim. It is like having a demon inside you that you can't get out. When you are an addict, whether its drugs or alcohol, you are trying to escape and find some peace. I hope now that Corey has found the peace he was looking for, even though it has left a hole in his mothers heart.Corey, you will be greatly missed by your family, friends and all your fans!

It was a blessing to have him in our lives for the short time we did. God bless his family and friends in their time of sorrow.

Re: 80's Teen Actor Corey Haim Dies of Overdose at 38

Corey Haim was an addict for a very long time & for a man of 38 he was not very healthy. As an addict with 20 years sobriety I understand the problem, life is hard, escape is tempting but the problems brought on by drug and booze abuse are really what ruins your life and those around you. Escape is only a temporary fix. Dying means no more relapses but it leaves behind many sad people. Corey seemed to be a nice man just very sick with a major illness. Sometimes being famous to early can wreak your life. Had he been a normal teen life would have been different, maybe easier for him. I hope he is at peace and his mother is being helped out.

Re: 80's Teen Actor Corey Haim Dies of Overdose at 38

they did not find any illegal drugs in his system following the autopsy

Re: 80's Teen Actor Corey Haim Dies of Overdose at 38

Most celebrity overdoses do not involve illegal drugs, but too many illegally written prescription drugs in their system!

Re: 80's Teen Actor Corey Haim Dies of Overdose at 38

truely heartbreaking and painful to see.

Re: 80's Teen Actor Corey Haim Dies of Overdose at 38

He's passed from complications due to a congenital enlarged heart and pulmonary congestion (water in the lungs).
