I think James can take it easy on himself. It wasn't the opiates that killed John. And, I don't think it was the opiates that killed the Beatles either. No doubt it contributed, but like any relationship gone bad, if it was just one thing that was the matter, it could have been fixed or managed. I believe it was many things. Also, John was clean when he died. Sometimes you have to go through some shit to get to the other side of the tunnel. Chill JT :) Fire and Rain.
