Philip Seymour Hoffman

Planning for Long Heroin Binge

2/3/2014 12:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
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.

He had 3 young children. The only thing he should have been planning was to stay clean and healthy. Idiot!

Although he looked 60+, 46 year old Hoffman did not die of a heart attack or a car accident or any natural cause. He died of a DRUG OVERDOSE! Apparently, drugs were more important to him than being with his kids. I won't miss him.

Heroin dealers and smugglers should all be put to death.

Holy moly    

The sad thing about these stories is that the addicts die and leave their families with a huge mess. Prayers go out to his family because at the end of all of this, they are the real victims.

Earlier today I wrote here telling TMZ to stop beating this dead horse of a story - that this poor man succumbed to his demons and to just let out one tiny piece of crap after another was just wrong and disgraceful.
I got a ton of HATES and my own personal troll telling me this was a gossip site and to shut up.
Now do you see what I mean?

I do the same thing with buttermilk donuts, sugar cookies, Verona cookies, lucky charms, ice cream and cake. Stock up and binge out for days on end. The only after effects are monkey butt and impending diabetes. And I can get my fix at Safeway.

Sad...but that is what happens when you get hooked on drugs, it does not matter if you are rich or poor, black or white. You end up in a body bag.

omg now my life is complete.... i thought he only died a little, with 10 bags, but now i know he died a whole lot, cause he had 50 bags....
seriously, the man's body is barely cold... we don't need updates on every aspect, he'll still be dead...
RIP Phillip, my condolences to your family...
