Everytime someone mentions a close friend/family member dying under 30...
Every time someone mentions a close friend/family member dying under 30, I assume it's drugs. Unless they specifically post pictures of someone who obviously had cancer or something. Does anyone else do that? Is that just me?

I know a lot more people who have died from fentanyl overdoses or heroin, etc than ever in my entire life. And it's bizarre some of the people who die. People who you would literally never expect.

I mean there are a lot of bad decisions that result in death/ruined life besides drugs.

Lots of people make kids with the wrong people.

See, I know you think that. But these aren't THOSE kind of people. It's like it'll be someone's cousin who was in a sorority at some point. Or an aunt who is this soccer mom. shite like that. I mean, if it's a former acquaintance who you see pics of their kids with neck tats, it's one thing.

But this is something different. It's happening at a weird, alarming rate.

vast majority of under 30 deaths i know were all vehicle related.

i knew:
1 OD
1 cancer
2 murder victims


all the rest were in automobile accidents.


i also knew 3 guys fairly well that didn’t make it home from Afghanistan.

I only know one person who has died due to an overdose, he was a co-worker of mine when I lived in New Orleans

I would add suicide not involving drugs too.

Still. That’s your circle. The people you know are overdosing, therefore the people you know use heavy drugs and are dying from it.

If it’s not explicitly stated, it’s usually drugs or suicide. A guy I knew growing up who became a pro soccer player died in his early 20s and they made it well known it was an enlarged heart.

I don't personally know a single person who's died of a drug overdose that I was in any way surprised by; they all were very obviously abusing hard drugs. Pretty much all young white men 17-25.

I have come across a few barely functioning alcoholics that I would have never suspected.

I’m 30, went to college, have had a relatively large friend group throughout my life and don’t know a single person that’s died from a drug overdose.

I also don’t know anyone that’s died from the Wuhan Virus aside from a 84-year-old distant relative.

Probably a higher chance of a car accident than either drugs or cancer. Don't know, just assuming.

Unless it is an old person talking about it, you probably are right a lot of the time - especially if you include wrap in drunk/high driving and drug influenced suicides as well.

Like others have said, I would assume an accident. But usually in that case, the person would say that they were killed instantly in a car accident or died from complications after the accident. It is the ones that don't specify the cause of death that makes me think some sort of overdose.

Accidental overdoses just passed traffic accidents as a cause of death in the US in 2019. Haven't seen 2020 data, but I'd guess with less travel and more mental health issues from the pandemic shutin, the gap has grown. For younger adults, cancer deaths are very low relative to both of those, though still higher across all age groups.
