bit.ly/theovonclipsExcerpt from Washington DC | This Past Weekend #153Full Episode: althe.info/number/vZrHp6V8aJ-GqdA/videoTheo Von talks about everything the led up him quitting drugs and alcohol.
@Halo Aflame smoke some good weed drink a good beer before bed and exorcise often make sure to surround yourself with the best people you can... good Luck.
Congratulations on getting sober. I was addicted to heroin for over 10years but would do anything. I snorted it not shoot it like that makes a difference. I haven't done any opiates since a week before my bday this past July(bday July 9th). Then I lost my mom less than 2weeks later to cancer. And I hate being sober. I drink some but hate drinking. I just hate being sober more. I don't know if I'll honestly make it to my next bday. I honestly hate even waking up. I don't think I can deal with this for that much longer. Feels like my world has a ripped asunder. I'm only still here because of my immediate family and don't want to hurt them by ending things. But I'm almost to the the precipice. I've become a recluse. I don't know how to break away from the fucked up thoughts going through my head.
The choices you are making today will have a profound effect on your future and your family's future. You are showing incredible maturity and insight. Get ready for miraculous and unbelievable events to start happening. Not trying to be all hippie woo woo but it is like some kind of law of the universe.
@Kenny Perkins Hmm... Hope so!
Great to hear all this positivity from you. Hopefully one day you’ll make it thru to the other side where you can separate ur inner problems from occasional fun. Like doing a 20min spot on mushrooms. Love u dude.
Yo at 21:10 this shit hit home. I felt the same way. When I discovered drugs at 13 i just went downhill it was an escape.. I ended up stuggling with addiction to pain killers, coke and herion. Someone looked down on me and I was able to change my path. 10 years of bullshit and waisted time I'll never get back. I still find myself wondering what life what have been like if I was clean and were I would be and that sometimes hurts. I always try to look at what I have not what I don't. Your brave brotha for speaking up and telling your story
Man you were almost on mindhunters brotha lol. You would like that show I feel like you could relate not saying you a killer but there are some similarities. I thought when you said you moved into with that new family you didn't have to piss around the bed anymore. That shit wild.
Proud of you getting sober Theo, Jesus Saves brother
Theo’s emotional intelligence is off the charts
What was he addicted too?
Just one of the very many reasons we love you Theo. God bless my Louisiana brother... also shout out to pissin all over the floor 😀🤙
thanks Theo. So many things you said resonate. At some point I realized my entire self worth was based on the reflection of myself coming back from other people, which by definition is a long, sad roller coaster. And the desperation to actually feel something takes you to some dark places. I love this clip, especially coming from one of the funniest dudes around. Best luck in all things.
Dude looks like a young Bono and Making The Mullet Great Again. I just subscribed.
I’ve been drinking heavily for 20 years. I’m 35 now & my son is 1 I really want to quit but always fail after a few days. I’m really going to try my best this time no more excuses. The game is etc etc..
Day 23 for me.
theo von reminds me of that guy that would always bully you in highschool but was actually cool asf to you to at the same time
If Theo was driving the taxi, why the heck didn’t he stop the meter?! Seems crazy to just let it run if he was driving and the driver’s in the backseat having fun.
Theo thank you so much for sharing this. When I listened to this a couple years ago, it made a huge impact on my life, and how I carry myself. Over the last couple of years, I've been cutting it back with the booze ever since watching this video.
How do you do coke alone?
So he was a normal teenager.
Bro I don't even know who you are at all, but I found your channel tonight. You talk some good shit, super relatable. Subbed
5 months sober today
NYE was the last time I did cocaine and I don’t plan on doing it again. Only problem is I still like to drink so when the the bars eventually open and everything’s back to normal I don’t wanna fall of the wagon and get back on the blow again.
Bro my name is Bruce Lee!!! Love that sweater!!
Thank you for sharing brother. I had to hold back my tears for some of this. God bless you and congratulations on your success!
Doing the Lords work. Thank you for sharing
Got drunk last night and messed up my girlfriends car. Deciding to finally get sober man wish me luck
you got this man 14 days clean!
I think it’s amazing Theo, I think you’re funny as hell and you deserve a good life. I kinda had the same kind of life but we rise above it, just know your parents did the best they could with what they had to work with. No blame, no shame. Vulnerability is good on stage too. Stay healthy.
Always get recommended this when i am hungover as fuck haha...
@PJ Schenk 😆😆🙈🙈
Hahaha the algorithm man...it fuckin knows
Makes me want to dig out my old Daryl Strawberry´s. I know I still have some 87 Topps....a true collector never forgets exactly what they have! Even if it was over 30 years ago.
Theo you have a huge heart. You’re an empath and care so much that it hurts. I truly hope one day you’ll fall in love and get married and have kids and your very own family full of love! YOU DESERVE IT!! ♥️♥️
I would love to know the back story to that love affair 70 and 32 and 4 kids wtf
Much respect for you sharing your story. It helps knowing that the emotions one feels is shared with other people with similarities in their childhoods. This made me finally face some “facts” of my childhood that I have been burring for a long time. Hopefully, helps me move forward to a bright future. Another reason your the man, Thanks Theo.
The last few years iv watched u and the fellas, I must admit iv laughed again , so thank u u do have that gift of making somone sad , happy again that’s a true gift
Somone that’s sad, happy again, I ment sorry doslesic kicking in again
I feel just no direction no hopes dreams faded away , drugs make me feel content with failure, when I’m straight it’s all just to much to think about I duno , I’m fucked I gota figure out somthing
Cause when we are high or whatver people call it, we are our own best friend our only friend , it’s sad but that’s the feeling we feel is not alone anymore not scared anymore, everything that’s overwhelming is just ok in that state, not judgmental of how much we fucked up , we just are ok , I truly duno what to do , that’s why I’m watching this I stumbled on this on my live feed and somthing I need to hear is this so that’s why I’m talking aswell, sorry it’s scatterness, I’m doslesic aswell doesn’t help lol, all the way from Australia I’m listing dude
appreciate this vid.....ty
I love you theo!!!!
Nick!!!! Theo is the only comedian or artist that can spiritually leave the room and the dance around any conversation and make art! Such a genius
Quitting drinking (or most addictions) isn't so difficult physically, but unless one addresses the psychological/emotional dependence issues the abuses are likely to recur. :(
One month again. this is about when i always get bored. feels like a year since i had a drink
Sober today onwards.... Cuz am broke.
Hashish is the best!
I stumbled upon you thru comedy central with the best introduction with the NYC taxi cab story and I been hooked ever since. I relate to alot that u been thru honestly your the comedian for the people!!!! Your shows are like therapy for me and this one i related to on a personal note. Keep up the great posts
Shit my dad was 50 when i was born an i thought that was old.
March 18th is my anniversary. Will be two years since I quit drinking.
Im 22 and my liver and colon is sore. Drank myself to sleep for about 660 days. Im trying to quit. Ffs.
So.many things I relate to with the, taking a different bus stop because I was embarrassed where I lived. Doing substances by myself in high school liking to just be alone and my parents were alot older than my friends parents which made me feel awkward. I think me and this dude could be best friends lol.
Struggling myself man
I'm 23. Been drinking for 12 years. I am 4 days sober. Tryna really make it stay this time. We can do this guys
Theo you're the man dude... your story is inspiring to me bro I've struggled with addiction for what seems like forever and I feel you man
Not sure what he was even talking about, this video is the reason tradition 11 is a tradition
Almost 1 year clean now. 👍 to all the sober people.
I'm 8byears no ALCOHAL stopped cold turkey when my son came into my life and he s not my blood son been there with him since he was 3 months his "father" is a P.O.S. dope addict and felt I needed to be the father he needed now at 8 years old my son know I'm not his real father we had that talk when he was 6 he knows his "father" is no good and even to this day he calls me dad
Not sure I’ve ever related to anything more than I am relating to this right now, fucking hit home about a whole lot of shit I just keep burying inside the hatchet. Fuck ey
Yea me 2 man
Theo, ur much like me if there is ever a time u can zoom or something ? I'd love to get some advice from you? in desperate search for a fit - finding myself
Man Theo what a story i love you man. I relate in certain aspects but man it's nice to hear what other people go through to understand how lucky you have it
Unless you have ever walked in the shoes of addiction you cannot understand My utmost respect to those who are sober and those who are trying.
Damn five mile bike ride to school everyday in the fifth grade? Fuck that bro I would’ve just been on the poor bus, but where I’m from everyone just caught the local transit so after you got off people didn’t really *really* know where you were going
I was moved by your story here Bruh and only the lucky ones get to experience and learn from life's lessons & they never seem to approach anybody as much as US! Dad was an orphan. We grew up USAF brats with 4 kids running amuck while dad worked 2 jobs the 19 years of marriage. They both remarried more than once while I remain single. I learn from other people's mistakes & the best storytellers teach us the best lessons my Friend (You are my Friend ~ We have a ton in common Bruh). I do observations of human behavior comedy myself and it's stage magic because most humans can relate it. My mother died on a hospital bed. A nurse neglected a monitor readings. My brother killed my sister (best friend) with heroin & cocaine on July 4th. He was a junkie & shot her up with street junk. He served 15 years for murder in Texas Dept. of Corrections just prior to killing Sharon. My father's 4-way bypass surgery recovery nurse killed him somehow under her care. Was no coroners report. No autopsy. And she had him cremated in another county just to acquire everything he had left me in his will. I've had some heartbreaking moments Leo & I can relate to this story of yours. I have had a bad/weak heart 3 years now. I blame it on my lifestyle growing up. Wine, women & song etc. I felt bulletproof Bruh~! Worked most of my life in music & entertainment business. My 3 disc jockey jobs were the best of times. Living 7 years in Las Vegas donated it's share of stories. And I've also been to AA meetings and similar ones. I got saved. Born again Christian and even got in playing gospel - rock ministry. I'm 100% disabled now. My legs are weak. Doctors doing a great job keeping me & guiding me to a better quality of Life. Then came the bone marrow Biopsy. Now body is consumed with lymphatic cancer. So stay with the Lord. He knows You the best. Keep us all laughing Bruh. You do such a great job at comedy & I feel safe saying that You improve your fans *Quality of Life*~! Peace Outta here~!
It’s ok not to be ok
theo i grew up with parents that where 10 years apart .... later in life i dont care about age! if ur together ❤ your together !!!!! society is dumb! please dont let it bother you! it has never for one second bothered me !!!!!
The empathy I have right now for Theo as a child I just want to hold him so tight........ it’s ok, baby....
Ugh me too... 💔
I can't help but think this guy never 'got sober' he was drinking and doing drugs, realised it was holding him back and then just stopped doing it. Did he struggle with addiction problems? It's like he decided to do it for a while, then decided not to. Am I getting that wrong?
3 days clean
Know that i dont have nearly as bad as this guy but the not feeling anything is very relatable. Going numb after suppressing emotions, seems like a common issue young men experience.
Thank you Theo.
Watching this 3 months alcohol free. I’ll come back when I hit 6 months then in a year and comment my journey (:
128 days sober❤
ill make ya a daddy bb boi ;) love u sug thanks for sharing xoxo

I'm so grateful you told this story
I'm still struggling with morphine and heroin it's so hard I don't know how to get through it I have everything I've ever wanted but still this shit has got my soul.i have the nice house nice car money in the bank n u know what I'd give it all away if I could get my soul back
Men i feel this guy when he said that he was poor i dont want to friends in school know it,that was me almost all my teens,i see how people make fun of poor people that hes parents have old ugly cars or were they live or just the clothes that her family has and that was me,i grew very insecure kid afraid of everything,it was hard for me doing anything.My father was like a demon when i was a kid,he was a terrible father that destroy my mother life and almost my life and my sister life.Im really very diferent to all men in this world i always knew that i was diferent in a way of thinking and feeling since i was a kid,i just thanks God that i knew the game of basketball and weights in the gym,that really help my confidence and i dont think i will still alive if wasnt for basketball and the gym,the gym is my Medicine and therapy
Pissing around his bed to keep ppl away lol that was funny I’m sorry.
This is incredible. Genuinely felt he was talking to me direct. So brave to not only do this but to show the emotion. I will guarantee you have not only touched me with your story but thousands of others. Thank you.
Come to Virginia. Well go to a meeting and then get married
"Never again will i lose something to alcohol" I said this 2 years ago and still running strong.
Luigi sounds fucking tight hahaha wonder if he’s still driving taxi’s
You're awesome!! Thank you for sharing. It inspired me.
The North Harlem story 😂😂😂
3 months clean and sober
Theo man, my father passed when I was a toddler. My mom remarried and to a great guy. He taught me discipline and how to act right. I think you turned into a great person. I love your podcast and I have seen you expose vulnerabilities in you life. I take your words as words of wisdom. I am currently dealing with AUD and it sucks. You have helped me and I'm sure countless others. Like you say "Be good to yourself". I love that. We all need to be good to ourselves. God bless you and all of us. Gang gang! Be well brother!
Shits hard, going on 140 days sober good luck yall☮️
Thank you brother 🙏🏻

People will like you better sober. Including yourself
I’m ready to get back into the program after watching this video. Been fighting it For a long time. Thanks Theo great story.
from the first podcast i ever heard of you i knew there was something different about you theo, something that set you apart from all the others. i felt like you had a story to tell. keep figuring out yourself dude, you ain’t got nothing to be ashamed of.
Hey Theo. We don't always love ourselves. i know I haven't. I still struggle. I love you brother!. Coke is garbage! I drink and it sucks too. God bless you Theo! I'll pray for you tonight man
I bet I know the camp Theo was at, my son and nephew went every summer. It was in Theos hometown in Louisiana.
