NFT: Artie Lange...how is this man not dead or in jail yet?

Jints in Carolina : 1/31/2019 12:19 pm
Artie LangeĎs team tweeted on Wednesday that heís in a long-term treatment program, but made no mention of the fact that he was actually arrested on a drug charge that day.

Page Six confirmed on Thursday that the comedian was arrested and booked in Essex County, N.J., on Wednesday night for possession of a controlled substance.

The same day, his team issued a statement that he was seeking help for his drug addiction.

He snorted a line of coke with broken glass in it, supposedly not knowing. Yes thatís really what happened.

I believe he was snorting oxycontin and there were shards of glass on the table that went up with it.

He is a serious, serious mess and he's going to wind up dead very soon if he doesn't get help. It's sad.

Yes but i think this is the first ďlong-termĒ one. He legit needs a MINIMUM of one year in a residential facility.

Candy thread. Couple times a year same thread pops up same story same picture and Iíd swear same title.

Sad how some just canít get over their demons unfortunately I donít see it ending well for him
I read a headline  
pjcas18 : 1/31/2019 12:34 pm : link
this morning he failed a court ordered drug test in December and because of that he will be entering long-term treatment.

didn't click the link, so this explains more of it I guess.

LOL yep...i am amazed he is alive.
Artie said the other day  
Giantsfan79 : 1/31/2019 12:57 pm : link
that he owed $66,000 to a bookie and that contributed to his bad nose.
This will sound weird, but  
jpkmets : 1/31/2019 1:15 pm : link
this guy has been so lucky. I am an addict in recovery and the amount of bad street drugs right now that are laced with Fentanyl is just making it like playing Russian Roulette. Memorializing another person who couldn't stay clean and got a bad batch this weekend.

I really hope Artie gives himself over to whatever program will work for him. He needs a LONG time in a residential TC. He has to rewire his whole way of thinking.

I hope he gets it, this go round, because I'm becoming increasingly convinced that it's just a matter of time that anyone using street drugs gets bit.

This is correct. He used a glass salt shaker to crush the Oxy and it broke but he was so fucked up already he still snorted it
I'm more curious as to how he keeps getting caught.

Thanks guys. Doing my best. I just had to declare certain things "off limits" and so far, so good! Best decision I ever made -- just how I'm wired and I have to respect it if I want to have a fulfilling and peaceful life.

Hopefully Artie makes a choice and does whatever it takes to stay away -- as in physically out of the presence -- of all the drugs he seems to find. Man is he in deep. Can't even pretend to know what that's like - but, he can do it if he commits to it. Just hope he doesn't choose the wrong bag and run out of chances forever.
Wow

Well thatís not entirely accurate, a woman was the one crushing it and cutting out the lines and failed to mention the broken glass.

That's his story but a few comedians have stated it's not entirely correct
