Philip Seymour Hoffman

Rehab Friends

Scared Straight

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Good that she's inspired, but you can't do it for someone else, you have to do it for you.

Most of Hollywood is on some combination of Crystal Meth, Heroin, Cocaine, and/or Pain Killers. F-ING HYPOCRITES!

Most addicts have the attitude that can't happen to me, they think they have control over their habit until the day they are found breathless.

There's a problem here    

Everybody gets religion in rehab and even a few weeks afterwards. Check back in a year to see how scared straight they all are.

Addicts will say anything sometimes. Being an ex-addict myself here's how it will work. Someone is going to have a bad day....like on a 1-10 he had an eleven. Junkies know relief, (temporary though it is), I, to quote Mick Jagger," It's just a shot away".

Then that person will remember the packed they all made for Phillip and for that promise an ''exception" will be made by this person. Just O-N-E exception.....but it won't stop at one.
I think it's great if they do get clean anyway they do it, this was just my perspective on this.

Oh please, they know the odds when they started using. How many celebrities have died from Over-Doses, yet Hollywood Rehabs Centers continue to fill up

I'm sorry I have no sympathy for abusers. We see television specials, movies, personal relationships etc that show us what happens when you get involved with drugs. So why in the world would I experiment with it?

Enough with the Hoffman stories. He wasn't Marilyn Monroe.

Sadly, that is what my 19-year-old daughter's friends said at her funeral after she od'd on heroin. Two of them died within the year.

Sadly, that is what my 19-year-old daughter's friends said at her funeral after she overdosed. Two of them would be dead within the year.

Hmmm... Maybe I should start using to take a few years off my life. Too bad that stuff is hard to get

PLEASE for the sake of any dignity you have, stop these stories about Philip Seymour Hoffman. You are trash, trolling for tidbits. Utterly despicable.
