At his worst, he keeps lucking out with bjrn cops and traffic accident plaintiffs. This book opened my eyes even wider as to what I’ve known and lived about addiction. In this one Artie looks hard at his life of suicidal guilt and remorse and hard drug abuse and isn’t afraid to tell the awful truth about his own bizarre behavior and self-destructive activity.

It’s a long audiobook, a crrash list of excuses and dodging getting clean, as every concern gets dismissed. I liked the book and it seems to be better written then his first. This book provided me the understanding I was looking for but is not ajd book I would re-read artke recommend to others unless they are looking for the same understanding of what happened to Artie Lange.
It feels weird to say I enjoyed a book about someone’s drug addiction and suicide attempt, but I did. He never made the party, but instead used the trip as an opportunity to hole up in his hotel room with a prostitute and do drugs. I remembered him from his short stint on Mad TV and the legendary ‘pig suit incident’ in which he left the set to snort cocaine off of his car keys.
It tells the story of his fall into drugs, how he lost everything and his slow, halting recovery. Fans of the Baby Gorilla won’t want to miss this.

Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. He slipped and fell, tearing the ass crack of his jeans so he could feel the cold night air bunr them. Too Fat to Fish was great too. I am a person in recovery, so my views correlate to Artie’s. He takes us through all the mechanics of giving up, the lost soul thoughts which permeated his every waking endeavor. You would think that his suicide attempt early in was his wake-up call, his rock bottom moment, but he’s relapsed a time or two since.
