Jake Roberts Interview; how DDP is helping him

Quote:
On the happenings at DDP's house, including his routine and his diet: Especially for me- he spends a lot of time yelling at me, saying "quit doing that!" And what he means is, quit working on the house. 'Cause I like doing woodworking, things like that. And I'm a clean freak... Once I messed my shoulder up- It's funny how goofy my mind works sometimes. Like, here I am in this horrible pain, and I'm watching the other guys work out, and I'm jealous. I'm pissed off. Dammit, I wanna work out, you know? Which is really different, I might have felt like that before, but never about working out, it was about drugs or something, you know? But you get to feeling good about yourself, and you just want to do the right thing all the time. At first, it was kind of dodgy, 'cause you have to remember what the right thing was. And my mind was pretty cloudy. It had a lot of moments that weren't real clear. But now that my mind's clear, I know what I wanna do, and I know before I even do it what the right thing is. Before, doing the right thing was a hit-or-miss thing. But living here, I wake up 7, 7:30 in the morning; last time I did that I was usually going to bed. That's not a good thing. I hit the hot tub, get the parts to moving, and I'm ready to work out. I'm ready to sweat, ready to get after it. That's what we do every day. And we eat right. That's what so nice; for all the pain you spill out, you're being twisted in all these positions. This ain't your momma's yoga, as you all know. You're not sitting in a corner holding your thumbs up humming or anything. There ain't none of that **** going on. There's a lot of squealing and a lot of barking, maybe, but none of that. But eating right is such a big part of it. What I found out is, eating good actually tastes better than the crap I was eating before. No gluten, and no dairy. The only thing that bothered me about dairy was no cheese, 'cause I love cheese, man. But then I found out there's cheese you can eat, which is sheep cheese. It's awesome. It's friggin awesome stuff, man. And it's not bad for you... Then we get on this stuff called chuice... I detoxed on it. Not so much off of drugs but off of bad food. And I'd wake up in the morning and I'm like "alright, somebody came in my room last night and pissed on me," 'cause I smelled like piss. It'd be okay if they left me a dollar or something, but they didn't even do that. But it wasn't. It was my body excreting all these toxins and stuff that had been built up in my body for so friggin' long, you know? I probably could've sold that **** to some junkie somewhere, he could've refined it and smoked it or something... I can't believe how much clearer my mind is, my speech is much clearer... It's not a concentration camp here, it's about loving each other, and reaching out, helping each other, and positive attitude.
Rest of the interview: http://www.411mania.com/wrestling/ne...-DDP,-More.htm

Reading this interview, WWE should just send people to DDP to get them help. Scott Hall is apparently going to work with DDP as well, who maybe there's hope for Scott Hall after all.

Hopefully he can do the same progress with Scott Hall.

That's cool to see. Hopefully there's not caveats in the article when I read it (just skimmed for now). I never liked DDP much but once I realized how cool of a guy he was in real life I did indeed become one.

Jake was on Colt Cabana's podcast a few weeks ago, and quite frankly he sounded as messed up as ever. Maybe it was his voice, which is really hoarse now.

Roberts was so far gone ten years ago, he must have come back around the other side....I mean, he was on crack.

Wow, Jake was unrecognizable. I hope he's finally able to kick his troubles.

Good to see Jake back into good shape! It must be hard to do that, much respect to him.

Jake will always be one of my favorites, scared the crap out of me as a little kid when he had the snake bite Savage.

He was on with Cabana a few weeks ago, tells some funny stories, especially one about playing softball where he makes an unreal catch drunk as a skunk. Here is the video of said catch.

looks like he raised enough $ to cover his shoulder twice.

Goal was 9,200, and the amount raised is close to 19,000

Will it? DDP has shown what he can do. It's up to Jake to prove that he wants to stay sober.

How long before Vince reaches out and makes a partnership with DDP to help previous superstars and rehab them back to health and a clean life?

He should promote that on tv. Have Jake come on tv, maybe finally get him in the HOF?

my lord do you ever have anything positive to say about anyone or anything?

Great job DDP, that transformation with Jake the Snake is impressive and he looks better then anytime previously he tried to kick crack.

What a ****** thing to say. He seems to be really taking this to heart now. And I doubt DDP will let him fall back into his old habits. There's still a possibility of course, but I think he'll pull through this time. The before/after pictures are amazing.

I'm a huge fan of The Snake, should be in the WWE HOF. If he actually stays sober now and makes his "comeback" i'd like to see him get inducted next year. By DDP.
