TWO young girls frantically tried to revive their mother after she was found collapsed at home, an inquest heard.
Diane Armstrong, of Lockwood, died despite desperate attempts by Jodie and Kimberley to resuscitate her.
The girls were helped by 999 call centre staff, who they had called by telephone, but Miss Armstrong was dead on arrival at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
An inquest in Huddersfield yesterday heard that Miss Armstrong, 30, of Rashcliffe Hill Road, had a long history of drug and alcohol abuse.
She had recently ended a course of methadone, commonly used to wean addicts off heroin, and suffered from painful arthritis and depression.
She was found collapsed on the settee of the home she shared with her partner Patrick Reilly and her two daughters, by Mr Reilly on June 27 last year.
In a statement, he told Kirklees Coroner Roger Whittaker that he had gone out to buy more alcohol shortly before midnight after the couple had spent the evening together drinking beer and cider.
But on discovering the off-licence was closed, he returned within five minutes of leaving Diane and found her on the settee.
His screams work up the couple's daughters, who rang the emergency services and battled in vain to help their mother.
A post-mortem examination showed Miss Armstrong had taken at least eight times the maximum daily dosage of an anti-depressant, prescribed to Mr Reilly.
Mr Whittaker recorded a verdict that she had killed herself.
