I taught Tom Sizemore for two years at Wayne State University in the BFA undergrad acting program. He was an exceptional talent who went on to get his master's degree at Temple University in Philadelphia. Years of earning his stripes as an actor brought him to a certain level of craft in a tough business, one of substantial reknown. It hurts to see him like this. He should be more pitied than censored!

I am so saddened by a life that is revolves around drugs. I disagree that incarceration will not obstruct the path to the next high. If it is out of sight and out of mind and the place of that chase is taken by religion or twelve step program one can stay clean.

SIEZMORE is a classic example of someone who had a 2nd chance and just blew it.
He is nothing but a hopeless addict. He has alianated all his family, friends and business associates. He is his own worst enenmy.

After numorous attempts to " get off of drugs " he just can't seem to do it. It's evident that he is one of those people who has the pre-determined GENE for addiction.

His only hope is to be dropped off on an Island where he has no access to drugs. He'll dry up while he's in prison .....but he will go right back to them as soon as he is out.

Obviously Rehab didn't help. He has exhausted all his options. I'm sure he has burned every bridge he's crossed and doesn't have a friend left in the world. That's what happens to most junkies. The drugs become the most important thing......and people don't matter any more. I've seen wonderful people who change into MONSTERS in their quest to feed their insatiable need for their addiciton.

Maybe he'll make a few " friends " in prison. I don't see anyone rushing to his " rescue " this time around. I can't say I'm surprised .

She Looks Fabulous    

One of my sisters was hooked on this horrible substance for about 2 years I believe. She was finally able to become stronger than the addition and free herself from it. We are so happy. Her voice sounds funny now. That drug can really tear up your organs and do a lot of damage.

I hope he gets free from it. It is pretty powerful stuff.

WELL, THIS GOES TO SHOW THAT DRUGS ARE NOT COOL, EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE GLAMORIZED BY CELEBRITIES WHO DO THEM (NICOLE RITCHIE, PARIS, LINDSAY LOHAN, ET AL.

SIZEMORE IS A GREAT ACTOR, SOMEONE WHO COULD HAVE REALLY GONE FAR, AND WORKED INTO HIS LATER YEARS.

BUT BETWEEN HEIDI FLEISS, DRUGS, AND ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR, THE MAN HAS GONE WAY DOWN IN THE CYCLE OF LIFE.
I WOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF HE COMMITED SUICIDE ONE DAY.
THEN HE WILL BE ADDED TO THE LIST OF RIVER PHOENIX, JOHN BELUSHI, CHRIS FARLEY, ALL WHO DIED PITIFUL DEATHS DUE TO DRUGS.

REMEMBER---YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO GO TO REHAB IF YOU NEVER BEGIN TO DO DRUGS, OR DRINK ALCOHOL.
SIMPLE!!!!!!!!!!!
