    This really can happen to anyone. We get overdoses in the ER all the time, most are habitual street drug users, some abuse prescription drugs, and some are just people who had a bad drug/alcohol interaction.
    As you being a health care provider, I respect your wisdom in being cautious with combining alcohol with the blood pressure and heart meds. I never did drink much and drink even less as I take 3 different blood pressure meds and don't want to chance any problems. I had family members (not in the immediate family) who abused alcohol and probably some drugs, so it always frightened me and gave me a great respect for their power to destroy lives. My uncle died from his alcohol addiction and two cousins (his sons) to the same problem.

    The best part about this video is the out of touch dope saying "First it was Michael Jackson, then Amy Winehouse and now Whitney Houston".

    Hey Tony, Jackson and Houston died from drugs they got from their doctor.
    I support Tony's efforts. He should be allowed to smoke, drink, and indulge as many drugs as he desires. Please Tony, enjoy----- No really, really enjoy.

    Medication have warning labels not to consume alcohol or mix with other drugs. I agree people need to learn from what happened to Whitney Houston.

    Yeah , but I think as a society we are so "over warned" that we don't pay attention to warnings. Besides, everyone knows that a glass of wine or beer makes the Librium go down, Librium go down, Librium go down. Just a shot of Grand Marnier it makes the Librium go down, in the most delightful way. (as long as you remain seated)

    John Burri, Father of Fallen Soldier, Burns NJ Flag to Protest Whitney Houston Tribute

    "They're watering down the term of what a true hero is these days," John Burri told ABC News. "I thought it was offensive to every family's fallen solider out there, and it cheapens the meaning of lowering the flag."
