    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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~!

    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?

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!
