What a waste. He should have been grateful at his second chance and turned his life around. He could have went back to his Jewish roots and got married to a nice girl and have a family, and get a real job. I dont know why people are so attracted to the destructive hollywood life of drugs, fast women, and fame.

I know what? How about we just shut down every pharmacy in Hollywood. It won't solve the problem but it would help!

This is really sad. I think he had 'survivor's guilt'; guilt that he survived, when the others didn't. Like someone else before me said, he was given a second chance at life. My condolences to his family and friends. So sad..

I for one will believe if drugs were involved,it was accidental,as I don't believe he would've killed himself,depression or not.He was too vocal about how in awe he still was that he survived the crash & that his life was going so well. Unless a suicide note,no way I believe it was intentional,at the very most,possibly too much meds to quell the pain,but never intentional.....RIP Adam.

I am sorry to hear this. His life was spared in that plane crash, so he could waste it on drugs, and eventually kill himself. I hope he rests in peace - I think he should have taken the opportunity given him, and make a difference.
