Well none of the other cast turned to drugs so i hardly think that is a excuse .


It is sad he could not beat his demons but nobody else is to blame but Cory. He chose this path!!
I don't think anyone is using this as an excuse. It is still tragic and sad (as you yourself said) that it ended this way.

There is one hell of a disconnect between loving caring Cory and 'everything and anything' Cory. I wonder where the PR ended and the real person began, if anyone even knew that.

RIP
Bit here about that

Well quite it just puts in perspective that PR can make us believe someone is anything if they like. You've only got to read blind items ( if believe that kind of thing ..) to see what a facade celebs are putting up. Nevertheless RIP Cory ,this one had me shocked.

So incredibly sad that, after such a long time clean, he ultimately fell victim to those demons.

We don't really know how long he was clean for, he could have been using on and off since his problems begain in his teens for all we know.

Odd as i suddenly thought that as well. The fact he was using Heroin says that this was a lot deeper than any of us thought and his people, Lea must of known.

I meant returning to drugs. He supposedly had drink/drug problems beforehand so the pressure may have lead to him slipping back into them.

& How do we know none of the other actors take drugs? Would anyone have suspected Cory prior to the rehab news? Plenty of actors, celebrities and "normal" people can get addicted and show no signs

I was watching E! News earlier and the tv reporter started to choke up when talking about what's happened it goes to show how highly he was thought of in the industry.

I'm not going to be one of these people who post things like ''serves him right for doing heroin'' on forums - this is not for me or anyone else to judge. I will however say that it's deeply regrettable that a young man wasn't able to overcome those demons, despite having so much to fight for - family, friends, a beautiful girlfriend and a successful career. It's all very sad.

Actually deeply shocked at the results, no matter how candid he was about his problems, I would've never suspected heroin.
So sad that he couldn't overcome his problems, especially when it appeared that he had everything to live for

Excellent post it's exactly how I feel. He had everything yet wasn't able to overcome his problems so incredibly sad

So true and you wonder why that is never enough. I guess only other addicts understood truly what it is like as i just think " what a complete waste of a life who had everything and most people would of killed for his opportunity's in life " yet he threw it all away.

That's what makes it even more pathetic imo. Here's a guy with more opportunities than most could ever dream of, and he flushes his life down the toilet at 31. What a knob.

I always thought he was the best actor on glee. Seems he was even better at it than I gave him credit for. I never had him down as someone who'd do heroin. Thought maybe pills and coke but not this .

I find it incredibly sad that fame, money and love of a good woman could not help him. I feel for Lea more now than ever as the press will question what she knew if anything about this kind of stuff.

What a horrible article!
Why?
It was basically saying what a professional he was when filming Glee but there were demons and they generally returned when he went home. Seems quite likely, go back home associate with the people you used to do those things with.

Who knows but all credit to the man, he had problems but it didn't stop him trying to help out others at the same time. From looking at his twitter as soon as he came out of rehab he was fundraising for worthwhile causes. I think that is what is so sad he ticked all the boxes for trying to better the situation (eg honest about predicament, went to rehab, never read stories about him being a swine, his charity work) but it didn't work out

That is true. I was reading an ariticle by Macklemore (the rapper) who had previous addiction troubles and saying how the stress of his new found fame was pushing him back in that direction and how hard he was finding it to stay clean and sober. Drug addiction is an on going recovery and one thing can trigger off that old behaviour and its jst so sad.

"A mixed toxicity involving heroin and alcohol", God only knows what else was in there then, such a shame and such a waste of talent and life, such a shame he couldn't overcome his addiction, I won't pretend to know how hard it is but my sister used to be a drug addict, I can totally see how being famous put him under even more pressure and thus, maybe drugs were an escape for him.

Although I think you are being very harsh, there is something about it that annoys me. When you see young kids (or people of any age really) and stuff dying of incurable cancer everyday - they have no chance to carry on living - he HAD the chance to turn his life around, unlike a lot of people that die before their time.

I hope no one takes offence at this post - I think what has happened is awful for Corey and his family/friends.

We "know" (in so much as you can ever know about a celebrity) how long he'd been clean for as he'd spoken openly about it himself and I see no reason why he'd lie about it when he was so open about his battles with addictions and his friends have also spoken about him being clean for at least five years before he joined Glee. He had clearly had a relapse, hence his admittance into the rehab centre earlier this year. Sadly heroin is a drug which rarely lets people go.

That's what makes it even more pathetic imo. Here's a guy with more opportunities than most could ever dream of, and he flushes his life down the toilet at 31. What a knob.
There's only one person coming across as a knob and it isn't Cory Monteith.

Wow self-righteous much?! I don't think anyone willingly chooses to become an addict, and the fact that he had recently been to rehab suggests that he certainly didn't want to be one.

What opportunities you do or don't have is irrelevant to whether or not you can end up struggling - it can happen to anyone, for a myriad of reasons. And it could happen to you someday, or to someone you know, so maybe you shouldn't be so quick to judge. You don't know what was going on inside his head, no-one does, the only facts here are that a man who was in the public eye has died at a young age, and addiction has claimed another victim. A family and friends are in shock and grieving, their lives changed irreversibly, and that's no less tragic than any other death.

Professed how much he wanted a future with Lea...yet continued to use.
Sorry feel no sorrow for him.
Call me nasty and callous.
Kissing his arse doesn't make it right for the people he has left devastated.
People die without vices that are not kissed upon, yet leave people who deserve more.

But it seems his actions and addiction are ok for him because he was a tv star.
You would demonise someone in the same position as scum, simply because they were not of a media position.

Utter shite. One of the earliest stories I covered in my career as a journalist was the death of the son of one of my town's traffic wardens. A man even younger than Cory Monteith, someone who'd had a good upbringing, knew the dangers of drugs, had tried to come off them on numerous occasions, had a steady girlfriend, a decent homelife and he still died from a heroin overdose.

It's an addiction, a disease, the people who succumb to it are not in control of their actions and, unless and until you've been in a position to experience it affecting someone close to you, you have no right to criticise and claim that because he was rich and famous he was somehow able to resist any better than anyone else.

O tragic cory
It's such a sad old story
Your life was one of glee
And you made me so hap py
Then dawn subsides to day
So sad you've gone away.
