Fears for Lamar Odom Reach Truly Alarming Levels

Heartbreaking 16

It's a bad sign when your crack dealer cuts you off. TMZ reports that Lamar Odom's drug habit got so bad and potentially dangerous, that his own dealer supposedly cut him off, worried that he might overdose. Of course, dealers aren't exactly worried for their clients. They're worried for themselves! And this one was supposedly so concerned about Lamar Odom possibly dying and leading the cops directly to his/her door, that he/she cut Lamar off. Wow. This should be a major wake-up call for Lamar.

A source tells TMZ that Lamar's habit got so insatiable, that he was bugging the dealer for crack all week long. And the dealer got nervous and decided to cut him off. Who knew drug dealers had their limits?

While this is good news, in other ways it's not. Because reportedly Lamar just went and got himself another dealer.

There's still no word from either Lamar or Khloe Kardashian about any of these rumors, but since they are so damn prevelent, and they haven't addressed any of them, something is going on. I feel bad for Lamar. I feel bad for anyone caught in the grip of an addiction.

Anyone altering his or her mind with drugs is, essentially, trying to do one thing: Feel better. Let's face it, life can be painful, disappointing, and heartbreaking. Whether it was Lamar's career coming to what seems a total end, or living in the shadow of the Kardashian family, or Lamar's tough upbringing and his irresponsible father, Lamar has his issues -- as most people do -- and thought that drugs would ease the pain of those issues. 

But having your dealer cut you off is a sure sign that you've gone way too far. He probably knows this already. His marriage is in big trouble. His career is down the tubes. His reputation. He's losing everything for a drug. I'm sure he doesn't like that or want it. But he's not in control now, the drug is.

The only way to get back control is to get away from the drug. And that means getting to a place where you can't get it. Let's hope this happens before it's too late. We don't need another Cory Monteith. 

What do you think Lamar should do?

he needs to focus on something more powerful than crack or whatever his drug of choice may be. Ive been there and i know, he can do it if he wants to

You are so right, about *being in the grips of an addiction*, it is very powerful, and you cannot quit it alone, I hope he realizes this (if it is true) before its too late....I just love him (from what Ive seen on the show)...One question goes through my mind...Did his father get him into this?  It seems that since he got reconnected with his (father) that he got involved in this....My prayers go out to him and Khloe, I hope they make it through this and whatever else they are goin through  oxoxxoo to them

I think first they need to find out what caused this, second he needs to get help,  he is a very nice man and great basketball player, I would hateif he threw it all away.

It's a waste of time to try to find out WHY it happened as that will likely never happen. It's more important to focus on how to stop it from happening again. He has to decide on his own to get help. The only thing his loved ones can do is be there to support him. I hope he uses the fact that he has the resources to get the best help available to his advantage. As far as the drug dealer supposedly getting a conscience, I don't buy it. If he actually cut Lamar off, it's because he was worried about being caught. For reasons I don't understand,people really do want to keep up with the Kardashians and anyone related to them. The drug dealer knows he's likely to end up in the spotlight. A dealer cutting off a major profit source off out of concern for their well-being? As if.

I used to have a $30 dollar a day habit with pain scripts and after I decided to get off of them and detoxed and everything after the treatment we were supposed to delete any contacts that you only used for that reason and/or tell whoever that you are not going to do that anymore. My contact for buying those told me that she wasn't gonna lie, she would miss the money she got from me but was proud of my decision and sticking with it.
