it means you can afford help, especially in the US. the guy booked out an entire rehab facility cause he can afford it. Also means anyone else can't get help since Tiger took every room.

money still means a lot, even if the soul has been destroyed

The difference is that if your intent is to get drunk you can take a cab or hire a driver because you know beforehand what the result will be. He was not aware what his reaction was going to be to the pain killers. (Really dumb to mix them but when in pain people do dumb things)

I am not condoning what he did as it was not too smart of him just saying that he wouldn't know to hire someone.

that is an assumption. I would suggest the fact he checked himself into rehab suggests he knew the impairment level his little mixture would produce and was addicted to it.

Usually on the prescription for pain medication.

Take when needed for pain, don't exceed "X" number in 12 or 24 hr time period (along with: to be taking with food... some that's not necessary)

This is were problems happen.... a lack of reading skills or following the Pharmacist instruction.
