The passing of Whitney Houston over the weekend is yet another reminder of how addiction can strike anyone, no matter how rich or poor you are. While the actual cause of death is still unknown to the public, Houston’s tough battle against drugs sparked a decline in her health over recent years. Being a public figure, this battle has been played out on our TV screens and in gossip magazines the world over. It’s a decline that has now sadly ended with her dying at the age of 48. Far too young.
