Philip Seymour Hoffman

Rehab Friends

Scared Straight

0209_philip_seymour_hoffman_getty2A group of friends who were in treatment with Philip Seymour Hoffman are vowing to stay sober FOR GOOD following his death ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ spoke with a woman in rehab with PSH -- we kept her name confidential for obvious reasons -- and she says a bunch of people in rehab and Narcotics Anonymous with Hoffman made a pact after he died to not only stay sober from now on for themselves ... but also for Philip.

We're told his death was a "pivotal moment in their recovery" ... because they realized no one is invincible ... even rich celebrities.

If true, then perhaps Philip didn't die in vain

How do you know this ? Between this "news flash" and Biebers speeding, not speeding, speeding, TMZ is pulling info out of their imaginary a-ss--s.

It doesn't work that way.
One can stay sober 1 day at a time.

Why is Hoffman even newsworthy? 7 service members were killed last month and not a mention of any of them in the news. I have no pitty for someone who takes life for granted.

That is a wonderful sentiment however I have never heard of a heroin addicts own personal rock bottom being another heroin addicts death. If it is true and his death can help keep even one addict sober then that is amazing. Personally however, I doubt it. But like I said, it's a nice thought.

Is the writer saying they were pretending to get clean before the unfortunate event but now, they're taking it seriously?

There has to be a reason this man sunk so low. He had everything to be happy about. Money, kids, great career. Nobody has mentioned what demons were driving this man down. F'd up what he did to his kids though. They shouldn't suffer for this. Selfish if you ask me.
