@Faulkner, yeah. My BFF knows me so well, he immediately messaged me a second after I saw it. 

 

I was a basketcase in junior high and 'Linger' got me through the dark periods of that time.

God, that is so sad. 

 

There is so much emphasis on abuse of drugs like heroin and fentanyl that people forget how many people die from alcohol poisoning and there is a history of talented female musicians that have died from alcohol poisoning (Amy Winehouse is one of the most recent ones that come to mind).
