Leben: I spent most of money on illegal drugs


Chris Leben's struggle with drug abuse has been somewhat well documented, but after his recent retirement he spoke more in depth on the subject. Here is a snippet from a recent interview with Frank Trigg:

“It really is better now. The bottom line is, especially with all the illegal drugs, I was spending all the money I was making anyways. Six in one, half dozen in the other. I used to fight, the way I fought, I didn’t give a shit. ‘Fuck this, I could die tomorrow, let’s go out there and I’m gonna fucking kill this guy!’ That fire, I’d be lying if I said that fire was still in me these past couple fights. It hasn’t been. I hate to admit it, but shit’s going okay at home. My life’s alright. I’m a lot more of a mellow guy. Just getting older I guess. I don’t even know. I don’t know how to explain it.”

If someone takes an oxy while they have suboxone active in their system, then they are just wasting it. Look it up.

No you cannot. You absolutely cannot. If you have suboxone in your system it is impossible to get high. The affinity of suboxone is much much higher than normal opiates and they bind to the same receptor in your brain. You cannot have 2 substances that bind to the same receptor active at the same time. Theres only room for one.Wherever you got this info, hate to inform you but it is 100% incorrect. You cannot get high on other opiates while you are on suboxone. Its impossible.

This is a huge factor. It's not enough for you to be doing drugs, you've got to have everyone around you using drugs too so you can feel what you're doing is more normal.

Arguing what the drug must or can't be based on Leben's earnings is pointless IMO.Absolutely any drug can bankrupt you. The biggest drain isn't money for your own habit, it's the hangers-on and other socializing scenarios involving other users/partiers. When ripped/drunk/high your monetary decisions are approximately that of a retarded emperor.
