    Liked his show, enjoyed most his narration and ability to tell a story. He reminded me much of a friend of ours here who has both a French last name and a very similar communication style.

    Having lost a few friends to suicide, I can say that never let someone's happy countenance, wit, and charm to make you think things aren't boiling over inside.

    Yes, rest in the peace you could not find in your life Anthony

    No kidding.

    He was worth watching just for his introduction and conclusion summaries. To have survived his level of addiction and drug use years back and having fought that battle you wouldn't imagine this.

    But that's the thing about mental anguish. Those who suffer hide it so very well.

    Stay close to your loved ones friends, and listen to them.

    You never, ever know.

    I’ve experienced that type of loss. I’ve had 2 out of 3 of my brothers commit suicide. One in ‘93, the other in 2003. I’ve never been the same since. It stays with you daily, for the rest of your life....

    Doesn't matter how rich you are or how popular or good-looking or what ever. Some people are hurting so bad they see that as the only option. Sometimes it helps just to talk, even with a complete stranger. I've worked with people like this and seen some recover fully and others not so much. Help is out there, you only have to ask.

    If a guy wants to have a look into the mind of Anthony B. all you have to do is read his first book. The man had a wild past, and I’m sure had many demons.....

    Dang, I really enjoyed his show. I don't have friends that committed suicide, but deftly see the devastating effects it has friends and family . Wow. It's never easy.

    I'm completely shocked.

    I watched everything he ever did.

    Does not make any sense at all.

    I think Big Pharma is hiding the real dangers of all the psychotropic drugs that they are pushing, just as they hid the truth about Oxycodone being so addictive.

    The evidence of powerful suicidal tendencies associated with all these meds is pretty obvious to me.

    How many mass shooters and prominent suicide victims were not on such mind altering drugs, often being multiple ones at the same time?

    Anti-depressants, sleep aids, anti-anxiety drugs....etc.

    Ironic that he may have succumbed to prescribed drugs, when he conquered so many bouts with illegal ones.

    That should say something about how dangerous they really are.

    Eagerly waiting the toxicology report.

    @Goomer Yeah, I rather go to nearest dispensary than take what the doctor order... those meds being pushed out by the big reach are no good...

    It’s hard for me to feel bad about people that kill themselves. I’m still mad at Robin Williams. The crap i’ve gone through and survived, i shouldbhave jumped off the Shasta Dam long ago. But no, I just keep going. Things do get better, time heals all. When you’re in the dark grasp of dispare its hard to see any way out.

    I don't feel bad about the person that killed themselves. When they die, all is forgiven. I just feel bad about the friends and familirs. When person goes through dark and depression , It's a terrible state of mind. Especially with bi-polar, schizophrenic, disassociated multi personality and various chemically imbalance mental afflictions.

    Trust that it is, and you might realize that closest to you is suffering the same thing. That you will do right thing to help them if possible.

    Remember, time can wound all heal as well.

    Depression is a Mofo! I almost lost my sister to it. People aren't in the right state of mind when they make these decisions.

    I just can't judge people because I don't walk in their shoes in their life.
    But I think I would have found another way besides hanging.

    I hear what your saying, but I understand the act to be one of an very irrational and distorted mind at that moment.

    It's usualy more than just depression in these situations.

    It's more often clinical depression along with organic chemical imbalances foolishly trying to be mitigated with dangerous mind chemistry altering pharmaceuticals who's true dangers are being hidden.

    Serotonin levels should not be fooked with such effective compounds.


    The "lows" are much too low.

    Bottom line no brain was designed or has evolved (depending on your view point) to have artificial chemicals or stimuli running through it, no normal 2 year old kid is happy because they are on anti depressants or high on what ever they ingested.. same for adults don't look for answers in places which rely on articial/chemical solutions
