    "Coke > Meth > Almost Dead > Sober" w/ Josh Fingerhut

    "Coke > Meth > Almost Dead > Sober" w/ Josh Fingerhut

    Actor and photographer Josh Fingerhut (Brooklyn 99, Sneaky Pete, Hawaii Five-0) shares how his casual cocaine use as a 3.5 GPA Northwestern University student led to thirteen years later almost losing his arm (and life) as an intravenous meth user while working regularly as an actor in Los Angeles. We discuss the psychology of addiction, the power of self deception, and how he needed to hit a "rock bottom" near-death 315 pounds before getting clean, sober and in the best shape of his life.

tessaaaaas ,

Shut up!

Let your interviewee speak! This could have been really interesting if the host didn’t frequently interrupt and ramble!

The guy still sounds brainwashed

The door people could just stay at the door like ushers instead of following people to the bathroom. How can he justify that?

Landmark forum

I enjoyed the conversation of this episode but quite frankly was very disappointed by a number of things. The guest was incredibly vague throughout the entire podcast which furthered my negative opinion of LF. Also why didn't you ask how much money he spent on ALL the courses? It’s ‘only’ $400 for the initial weekend - it’s well over $1000 for the subsequent one. It was repeatedly stated that there is no financial benefit to the participants for recruitment as if that’s such a positive thing. Well who do you think benefits from the recruitment? Lastly if you spend any time reading many peoples accounts on LF reviews people can be degraded to an unacceptable degree during the LF sessions. In order for this podcast to be helpful to people listening it would have been beneficial to get more than one persons opinion.
