    Artie Lange on sobriety, Howard Stern and Hudson Valley shows




    Fatso doesn't say he was abusing prescription drugs.....not Rock and Roll enough.....:jj:

    Earlier in July, Lange told Newsday Westchester he has been heroin-free for more than two years.


    :wop:Artie also claimed it was the death of Greg Giraldo (September 29, 2010) that inspired him to finally get clean?:wop:

    what wasn't he abusing is the question.

    0.0 chance he completed a rehab program.

    So he DID see Stern.....I thought that was all BS when I first heard.
    Wonder if it was at the hospital where Robin had her surgery.

    It is libel to say something (that is not provable in a court of law) about a person, especially a famous person, who's career is put in jeopardy, isn't?

    It is not a difficult technical problem to associate a poster's IP address to a real person (for lawsuit filing).

    For me, I will wait for Artie to say how he is doing.

    Plus why all the hate against 1/2 of the best entertainment anywhere?

    Gunnar,

    You do if you're bipolar & not being treated for it.

    i know this isn't necessarily the most popular opinion, but i truly believe artie is 100% clean. you can just tell by his comedy, by the way he's talking, etc.

    i DEFINITELY agree with jyanks that he's probably just not being treated for his bipolar/whateverthefuckpersonalitydisorderhehas but he doesn't seem like he's using. if you listened to the stern show, you KNOW what he was like when he was using. and it's so, so different than what he sounds like now.

    it's just funny to me though that whenever the tells the LA story (where he got arrested for coke) he exclaims: "i did the dumbest thing i could have possibly done...i took a swing at an LA cop." surprising he repeated that mistake. but he does seem to go crazy when it involves his woman.

    I think he's clean. When he starts skipping work for being "sick" and falling asleep on the air, let me know.

    I'd say he's clean, but he's always going to be really close to falling off the wagon. Him announcing a bunch of stand up gigs is the damn worse thing he could do.

    Yep, he's starting to take on a lot more gigs. Granted the schedule is different now, but the fact that he is supposed to stay sober throughout is going to be a real test. Hopefully some asshole fans don't start pressuring him to drink.
