Steve O On Being More Than 4 Years Clean And Sober, "I Am Actually More Creative Sober Than I Ever Was Loaded"

Written by DeShawn McQueen on Thursday, 14 February 2013. Posted in Celebrities, Voices in Recovery, Breaking News

Steve-O Sobriety

He is a Canadian-American television personality, comedian and stunt performer.

Most of you know him as Steve O, otherwise known as Stephen Gilchrist Glover, or more aptly, that guy from the Jackass series, not to mention that hugely successful Jackass film franchise.

As you can imagine, he is up to his antics as usual. These days when he is not touring for his comedy, he is hosting his own new hit show, Killer Karaoke.

Speaking of being more creative, Steve O even wrote a bestselling book, Professional Idiot: A Memoir. By the way, I bought the book, and not to give anything away, it is pretty good….at times I was laughing, while at other times I was near tears!

You know what I am getting to it…..yes, Steve O is an alcoholic! He says so in the book!

No spoilers here, but Steve O does talk about snorting cocaine in the bathroom with none other than Mike Tyson.

Although Steve O is still up to his old ways, as far as comedy that is and has no plans of slowing down, these days he is completely clean and sober!

Guys, he is a vegan, does not drink caffeine and will not touch cigarettes! Very cool!!

"It's like I am a different guy almost."

WOW! Congratulations Steve O! Keep up the great work!

As for you newly sober readers out there, not to mention you "old timers", let's get creative and find ways not only to remain sober, but to be an example of what quality sobriety looks like. Live your best life!
