He actually started when he was 13. And was in rehab when he was 19. It doesn’t really matter how he died. He was a good person. His inner demons got the best of him… but who are we, who is anyone to judge? Rest in peace Cory.
Cory struggled with substance abuse issues since he was nineteen. That’s twelve years, over a decade, of fighting. I know media outlets and other places will try and shame him for how he died, but he was, is, and always shall be a hero to those who tried so hard to get better because that’s what he was always doing — he was always trying to fight and get better. He had a relapse and it was a terrible thing, but it doesn’t make him a bad person.
