    Cory Monteith, who played heart throb Finn Hudson in the Fox hit "Glee," was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room, British Columbia police said late Saturday.

    Monteith, 31, spent time in rehab early this year, checking into a drug addiction treatment facility in April.

    He had been frank about his struggles with substance abuse, telling Parade magazine in 2011 that he began using drugs at 13, and by 19 went into rehab after his mother and friends intervened.

    Monteith had been on the musical comedy show since it began in 2009.

    In 2011, he won a Teen Choice award for top actor in a comedy. The show's cast won a Screen Actors Guild award for an ensemble in a comedy the prior year.

    Likely had more troubles in his life than any of us could have thought of a Star having... Hopefully he goes to a better place

    Drug users aren't all just loser like many want people to think... Every action has a reaction and he just chose the wrong path but it could happen to any of us, just be glad it didn't..

    With his acting success, you tend to think that he had everything going for him. But, you just never know. Terrible news.

    Yeah !! With much success, there's always some sort of demon/struggles behind it. It's like a requirement for most young stars, you come to Hollywood, make it big check into rehab and have some sort of meltdown/addiction. (Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes and countless Child stars) !! It's pretty sad really, his death reminded me of Heath Ledger, he was an awesome actor too.

    I absolutely loved Glee back in its glory days. It's one of few TV shows that I truly loved, like I-couldn't-wait-to-see-it sort of truly loved, in this case because I can't imagine life without expressing myself through singing or music in general in at least some way every day. I related in a lot of ways to his TV character and relate some to his real life experiences. He lived a good chunk of his life in Vancouver (my city of birth and early life) and was born in Calgary, where I spent a lot of my teens. All the interviews I've ever seen with him showed a guy down to earth, personable and quirky in a good/fun sort of way. This one hits close to home for me...poignant.

    these days?

    the reason the sixties are so mysteriously viewed is because most of the celebrities during the 60s were dead by 1970 from drug overdoses.

    Edited and reposted from this RealJock thread. regarding addiction, how it can happen to anybody, and how it can lead to slow or quick death.

    GAMRican said

    Because "Hot" (EDIT: or "Famous", "Rich", "Smart", etc.) doesn't necessarily equate to feeling the psychological and interconnected physiological sense of "serenity". An unbalance in "sense of self" can be a continual state of "living"...and in pain.

    Here is "why" from my understanding of addiction...

    On the outside, people may look like "they have everything", but inside they may be suffering painfully from the self-centered disease of addiction. I define "Self-centered" in this case as some sort of misperception of being either "better than" or "less than" (and in some cases both perceptions simultaneously). These misperceptions may stem from an infinite number of life events and situations which are unique to the person, but in the most primal form seek out ways to "fix' the pain. Drugs, sex, relationships, gambling, eating, shopping, and anything else which takes the addict's attention away from the pain can become a compulsive "active addiction". However, the "fix" does not take away the underlying root of what drives the addiction, and so once the "high" of the "fix" wears off, the addict is again alone with themselves and their pain.

    Although some people may be more genetically predispositioned to addiction, from my experience and observations ANYBODY can suffer in active addiction at any point in their lives.

    In the case of drugs, every addict has their "drug of choice", one drug is no better or worse than any other. Addicts often run through a number of different drugs until, unfortunately, they find the one drug they love...and the drug loves them back. Without addressing the underlying cause the addiction, the addict will choose their drug of choice over anything and anyone.

    Active addiction generally leads to jails, institutions, and death. Active addiction can be a slow disease which robs a person of everything before ultimately taking their lives. People lose jobs, friends, families, material possessions, freedom, and health until one day they find themselves alone with themselves and their pain and no way to "score" another "fix". The pain of being alive seems to hopelessly have no end and suicide becomes a welcome release from the pain. Active addiction can be a quick acting disease...an overdose is a prime example. Slow or quick the result is the same...a death alone with their pain in addiction.

    But it doesn't have to be this way with addiction. There are treatments for addiction. However, the addict has to want to recover. And, the very first important step is for the addict to realize and surrender to the reality that they are powerless over their addiction, that once they have sealed the choose to administer the "fix" by actually using, that their lives are unmanageable in an insane, self-perpetuating, downward spiral.

    Once the addict has surrendered to the reality of active addiction, the next step is to realize that there is hope in recovery through reaching out to something, someone, or some community which can help the addict to restore sanity to their lives.

    In the company of something, someone, or some community with a "more powerful" capacity for empathy (and sometimes "tough love"), the addict can recover.

    If you've gotten to this point in this post, thank you for the time you've taken out of your life to take in what I have to share from my experience so that you and perhaps others you know might gain strength and hope if and when you may encounter addiction in your life. Addiction impacts not only the addict, but those who love the addict. My lessons have been learned "first hand" on both sides of of the observation perspective.

    And for addicts in active addiction, where there is life, there is still always hope.

    RIP, Cory. We hardly got to know you before you were gone.

    Aloha and Be Well!
