Philip Seymour Hoffman

Planning for Long Heroin Binge

Exclusive Details

Philip Seymour Hoffman
was clearly prepping to use heroin for the long haul before he died, because we now know ... cops found approximately 50 heroin bags in the NYC apartment.

Law enforcement sources initially put the number of bags at 10 ... but now we know the number is 5 times that.  Our sources say a number of the bags were full ... along with a number of unused needles.  The upshot ... Hoffman was ready for a heroin binge.

This makes the story about a possible drug deal at an ATM Saturday night even more interesting ... if Hoffman purchased a large quantity of heroin.

#50 bags of heroine! Really? And they are still considering it a ACCIDENTAL OVERDOSE! Really? It seems to me IF you have #50 bags of Heroine, you were trying to take yourself out of here! I feel so sorry for his children!

They said that he was supposed to pick up his children from school but he chose to do dope? REALLY?

If he wanted to get all opiate high he should of got Oxy. He could afford it and its made in a lab not a by a low life in a RV.

You TMZ writers are pathetic. Your jokes , in the wake of someone's death, are inappropriate and juvenile. No other NEWS agency is reporting 50 bags. This is similar to the Lil Wayne on life support story you did. A bunch of lies until the truth came out and you morons embellished and lied about that. Until some legitimate news agency or the cops have a news conference stating there were 50 bags, I call bullsh! T on your sad attempt to get hits.

Enough. The man died of a drug overdose. We don't need to know a minute by minute review of his last few days. Talk about beating a dead horse!

"Hoffman was ready for a heroin binge"
You obviously have no idea what addiction involves.
Equally plausible is that he used regularly to avert "dope-sickness" but wasn't binging.
Picture a stash of methadone instead, and you'll see that this "binge" notion needs to be redacted.

Thank you so much for pointing out that 10 times 5 is 50. What would we do without you TMZ!

Why do drug addicts binge like this? If they are buying that much, then they should instead spend the money and go admit themselves into a nice rehab facility.

I don't get how people don't love themselves enough and love the drugs more. Hard to understand why people use, to cope? To escape? That is just temporary, why not go get real help that teaches you the skills and tools to cope with life and not have to turn to drugs to find comfort or solace in or escape from life but learn to live life and run your race through the good, and the bad and yet feel better about yourself for living a clean life?

No sympathy for him. He had a bunch of drugs and wanted to off himself. Burn baby burn.

Before assuming, lets remember he has children and family that should mourn with some dignity. They will be paying for the consequences miscalculated words.
