can't watch it...way too graphic for me right now.
but yeah...i agree. Drugs are bad!
I'm sooooooo glad I'm clean after watching this. So very glad for me and for everyone here trying to get clean or who is clean after much effort. Congratulations EVERYONE. We're all rock stars for getting clean.
WOW at 115 days i still cant watch that.....brings back thoughts..isnt that sick, to most people that be a "disgusting movie" and to me its a trigger...hmmm go figure...power of addiction
Just watched last night, surprised its not a trigger for me at 138 days. I guess I just try to associate everything bad with using. ick! Good show though, so very sad that DJ AM didn't make it through his own addiction. Very sad...
I'm sorry if my posting that triggered anything in anyone. I'm sorry if it was insensitive and I shoulda thought about it. It had the opposite effect on me. I'm newly clean and I watched it and thought "how disgusting" and that I never wanted to take them again. I guess we're all different.
hang in there fellow poppers! we're all doing so good!
you do not need to be sorry. you can not be resonsible for others "triggers" I am sorry if i made you feel like you should have not posted something! On this forum we all have the rite to post what we wanna, please dont feel like you did something wrong
Just watched it and was wondering what happened to the guy....??? Anybody know if he's still clean? And.. how's baby Marley?
SAD what happened to DJ AM...OH the powers of addiction! What a great guy.. and a sad loss!

he is dead i believe. If i am rite, he died in a plane crash
sorry i was wrong, it was not a plane crash, but he is died, here is the story
DJ AM was found dead in his New York City apartment on Friday (August 28), his rep confirmed to MTV News. He was 36.
"Adam 'DJ AM' Goldstein was found deceased this afternoon in his New York City apartment," reads a statement from AM's rep. "The circumstances surrounding his death are unclear. Out of respect for his family and loved ones, please respect their privacy at this time."
TMZ, citing a police source, reported that DJ AM (real name: Adam Goldstein) was found in his apartment at 5:20 p.m. ET on Friday. Citing "sources," the site also claimed that prescription medication bottles had been found near his body. The site said that friends who had previously gone to check on Goldstein had received no response. When police broke in the door, they reportedly found Goldstein's body.
The news comes just under a year after Goldstein and Travis Barker survived a plane crash that killed four people. Leaving from Columbia, South Carolina, after a performance by the duo, the small Learjet they were on crashed upon takeoff — giving the two musicians serious burns and leaving them in critical condition. AM and Barker performed as the house band at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, just weeks before the plane crash.
Born in Philadelphia, Goldstein gained fame as a member of the band Crazy Town, best known for their hit song "Butterfly." He performed on albums with the likes of Madonna, Will Smith and Papa Roach, played in concert with Jay-Z, and made a name for himself on the private club circuit while DJing at private parties for the likes of Ashton Kutcher, Jennifer Lopez and Leonardo DiCaprio. Most recently, he had an exclusive contract with a Las Vegas nightclub, and had continued to collaborate with Barker after the crash.
DJ AM: A Life In Photos
Before his death, Goldstein had filmed a substance-abuse intervention show with MTV called "Gone Too Far" that aimed to warn young people about the perils of drug abuse. The show was scheduled to premiere in October.
"Adam 'DJ AM' Goldstein's death is an incredible loss to the music community, his friends, family and his fans, and to those of us who had the privilege of working with him," MTV said in a statement. "MTV was honored to support him as he helped young people battle their own addictions. Our heartfelt thoughts go out to his family."
The last post on DJ AM's Twitter account, dated August 25, quotes Grandmaster Flash's 1983 classic "New York New York": "New york, new york. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york aint always what it seems." Posts from two days earlier wrote about his throwing out the first pitch at a New York Mets game, which was reportedly his last public appearance. "I made it to the plate! DEF not the best pitch, but I didn't bababooey it, so I know it wasn't the worst! Still was an honor," he wrote.
Goldstein was a frequent tabloid target because of his relationships with Mandy Moore and Nicole Richie. He was engaged to Richie but the couple split late in 2005.
In a brief interview with TMZ at his birthday party in March, Goldstein referenced the plane crash when asked what his best birthday gift was: "Life."
MTV News will have more on this story as it develops.
