Sidekick of the Howard Stern Show, Artie Lang, recent attempt at suicide was not his first. For years, Lang has been dealing with weight issues, drug/alcohol abuse, and also depression.
In Lang's book Too Fat to Fish, Lang described his first suicide attempt, attempted with sleeping pills and whiskey. Lang describes his reaction to feeling the effects of the drugs and alcohol:
"I was morbidly curious about what was going to happen and obsessively began going over the possibilitiesâ€¦ I was actually excited and looking forward to whatever lay in store for me."
There have been so many numerous concerns and deaths within the entertainment industry in the past month that we hope Artie will find some help soon.
