Alcoholism is more than simply a lack of self control; today, it is considered an all out addictive disorder. In other words, it's not a bad habit - it's a disease. 

From Jack Kerouac to Billie Holiday to Errol Flynn, this list shows the celebrities who, for whatever reason, couldn't fight the addiction and lost their lives to the disease.
