DJ AM -- Crack Was 'My Drug of Choice'

8/30/2009 4:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There are several chilling quotes and clips popping up about DJ AM since he died, but listening to him call crack his "drug of choice" might be the most telling of them all.

In a recent interview with MTV News to promote his upcoming reality show about drug abuse, DJ AM talked about how he bought a crack pipe to show how easy it is. He said, "I bought a crack pipe ... that was my drug of choice. And I walked out and I'm holding it ... and then I realized after I was holding it that my palms were sweaty and I was like, 'Wait a minute, this is not smart for me to be holding this.'"

AM was found dead in his apartment Friday night of an apparent drug overdose. A law enforcement source told us they found a bag of crack by his body.

One day at a time. And it only takes a day to fall off the wagon and not be able to get back on again. So sad, but a good lesson to addicts, recovering addicts and those that are thinking of even trying that crap. It will kill you. Not a matter of if, just when. RIP dude, sounds like you were really trying to stay clean there for awhile.

Hi # 29 is the real answer, no body can help an addict but himself.
weakeness is your number one enemy. I feel sorry about the mother, father and family, because they are the ones that suffer the lost. I know how it feels because i lost a loveone to suicide. If they only know the emptiness that is left in a mother's hart. # 29 thanks for leting people know the real thing.

Hello...MTV Killed DJ AM. If MTV would have been playing music videos instead of filming reality tv shows DJ AM would be alive today!

This is incredibly disturbing. DJAM survived a horrendous plane crash that claimed all but one other person - then, less than a year later (correct me if I'm wrong) he dies of a crack overdose. Makes you really wonder.
And to all the haters out there - have you ever been seriously depressed when ANYTHING GOES -
including courting death with drugs?
See how YOU FEEL when your world falls apart.

Wait a minute,that's my house!    

Can we be clear here...he did not "fall off the wagon" '#91'...he killed himself. Obviously he didn't want to burden those that cared about him. What-ever was torturing him, many others... decided he couldn't take it anymore. Watching his recent series of short MTV interviews, you can see that he has been clean for years...Adam, I wish I'd known you... a decent man, trying to save peoples lives.

Saying that U can't get addicted until U try something is only partly true. As a recovering addict I know what I'm talking about. A person is born with an addictive personality; as well as with the mental disorder that causes lack of impulse control. These are sicknesses that nobody asks for. Severe mental anguish/trauma can trigger relapse, and AM was obviously suffering. Anyone judging him can just STFU...have U walked in his shoes? Didn't think so...

he was able to stay alive for 11 years more cause he was clean, not many addicts can say that. I too am a crack addict, a "Megan Fox crack -addict"
