Don’t get your panties in a bunch

I’m not about to try to start a new h
eroin diet


I was actually thinking about how George Michael died on Christmas Day

And it reminded me of this

Comedian named Artie Lange who always waxes poetically

On the microphone

What the hell he talking???

Well lemme splaineth


He starts off…

Opening up the audience by talking about his

Addiction to heroin

He goes to rehab,

Gets cleaned up and gets a trainer

His trainer is the uber male

You know pretty much your prototypical Abercrombie model/pro athlete

Artie talked about how hard training can be being,


And he says to his says to his trainer


You know heroin is a hard high to forget”

And his trainer responds

“Have you tried running?”

(Can you see where this is going?)

Artie responds back

“Have you tried heroin??”

Right then it dawned on me

No, I’m not gonna try heroin!

It’s simple

No one wants to work with someone

That’s not relatable

We all have our own demons but the truth will set you free

You see hombre, though most would judge Artie

And say he’s a fat drug addict

I see the contrary

He has taken power over his addiction and his weight issue

By admitting it and then doing something about it.


Sometimes you have to ask yourself

What are you most scared of that people will find out about you?

But maybe you should honestly consider

What it’s costing you

For me, it was costing me my freedom

I bought many cars

Went on plenty of trips to the Caribbean,

Even Europe


But nothing felt as liberating as when I

Confessed the truth

Don’t hide from the truth and don’t worry

About people judging,

If you are worth anything at all

(and you are because you’re awesome for reading this)

You are gonna be judged regardless
