Why celebs fall prey to drugs and alcohol?

Success, adulation of millions, moolah and plum perks. The cult figures in music get all these things on a platter at an early age. 

Then, what is it that turns the applecart upside down and drives them towards disaster, drugs and more - as in the case of Amy Winehouse? TOI speaks to some well-known members of the musical fraternity in the city to glean the facts... 

Whither support 
According to singer Pinkoo Joseph, it's not the western music that should be blamed, but the disturbed childhood that plays havoc with these singers' lives, who court success big-time. "Here in India, we have a strong family support and a value system that's imbibed in us since childhood. But, in most of the western societies, parents aren't able to do that because they themselves aren't exactly the role models. So, these celebs easily fall prey to drugs and alcohol," says he.

Sad News Dear Dhoni : ..advertising campaigns featuring India’s most famous cricketers, beer consumption has surged over the past decade

Sad News 
..............Thanks in part to advertising campaigns featuring India’s most famous cricketers, beer consumption has surged over the past decade (by law, no alcoholic drink may be advertised in India – but that doesn’t prevent producers using proxies such as bottled water).
It grew by 14 per cent in 2010 alone to reach 1.7bn litres, according to Euromonitor, the market research group.  (Why we should thanks, it is sad news ?) ..........

Daniel Radcliffe battled alcohol addiction - Yahoo! India News

London, Jul 4 (PTI) ''Harry Potter'' star Daniel Radcliffe says he spent years battling with a secret drinking problem and now has turned teetotal in a bid to put behind his boozy lifestyle. The 21-year-old British actor, who shot to stardom in the wizard franchise when he was 11, developed a penchant for partying and became "reliant" on alcohol in order to have a good time, reported Contactmusic. "I became so reliant on (alcohol) to enjoy stuff. There were a few years there when I was just so enamoured with the idea of living some sort of famous person''s lifestyle that really isn''t suited to me," the actor said. Radcliffe said he is glad that the paparazzi never caught him misbehaving, and he has now turned his back on his wild ways to concentrate on a calmer lifestyle. "I really got away with that because there were many instances when a shot like that could have be…
