He said regarding those who criticize his drug problems: “I think it’s a joke. I want to reach out there and tell people that I’m suffering from all these demons. I just want all the kids to know out there that it isn’t cool, don’t pick it up and don’t try it because it is torment. Sometimes when you’re an honest prick, you get labeled as something else. After all if I’d have done as much as has been put out there that I supposedly did, I would have been dead years ago so it’s been blown out of proportion, it gets twisted, it gets turned, it’s all about media having something to talk about you know? Give me a break. I’ve got a picture of Keith Richards and it says on the front ‘The real horrible thing about heroin is sometimes it doesn’t kill you, it makes you Keith Richards’ and I’ve got that in my house. I didn’t do it for publicity (speaking out on drug issues) I did it to help kids and they can whatever they want with it, because I have helped people, I get letters all time and contacted about being honest and doing what’s right, come on give me a break – I wasn’t the only wrestler to do drugs.”
