Brain scans reveal link between addiction and depression

Many are wondering how actor and comedian Robin Williams could have been so successful while dealing with so many personal struggles.

In 2010, Williams spoke openly about his battle with depression and addiction and even thoughts of ending his life.

"When I was drinking, there was only one time, where even for a moment, I thought: 'F*** life.' But then even my conscience brain went, did you really just say f*** life?
Okay let's put the suicide over here as "discussable." Let's leave that over here in the 'discussion' area. We'll talk about that. First of all you don't have the balls to do it, I'm not going to say it out loud, I mean have you thought about buying a gun, no. What are you going to do, cut your wrist with a water pick? Maybe."
