Substance abuse has fucked with my family quite a bit... all judgments of his character aside, I'd be happiest if he's working honestly and clean, and that's about it. I've always felt a little uncomfortable with the way people jump on him, even if he did a lot of shitty things.
Haha substance abuse has fucked ME and my friends and family and I feel the complete opposite.. He was a junkin who did junkie things but really took for granted the amount of love and respect he had from his fans and he still continued to do junkie things. I was a junkie who just pissed off my friends and family so i STOPPED doing junkie things.. I do however agree that it has been a while since the macbook days and people should try to imagine what it would be like to still get ragged on for something shitty they did 3 years ago.
