Movement BE: Addiction & Depression

Addiction & Depression

Lamar Odom

Odom reportedly lined coke and in three days took ten herbal supplement tablets as two women helped Odom obscure his mind from the real world. Addiction represents a risky form of escapism as a pill, sex, or drink removes the aches and pains of whatever haunts.

Odom represents another victim in a world where many find no satisfaction or peace until death.
