Jackass star Steve-O offered up a catalog of cautionary tales in which he not only detailed every drug he'd ever used, but also shocking and decidedly NSFW footage of his behavior while using those substances.

A Decade Of Sobriety

Steve-O (born Stephen Gilchrist Glover), who celebrated a decade of sobriety in 2018, was unsparing in not only detailing but also showcasing how his dependency had impacted his life, which he described as "seriously messed up."

Fans reacted with an outpouring of praise for his efforts to remain honest about his path to sobriety.

"This is probably the most embarrassing video I will ever put out," Steve-O said as an introduction to the video, which opens with footage of what he described as his last bender in 2008, where he used ketamine shortly after being released from jail on felony drug charges. From there, Steve-O ticked off a staggering list of narcotic and illicit substances, providing recollections and jarring video footage for each.

His Drug List

The drug list opened with marijuana, which Steve-O said he brought across international borders—even to countries like Singapore, which imposes the death penalty for drug smuggling—in condoms he swallowed and then passed through his bowels.

From there, viewers witnessed Steve-O kissing and licking his Jackass co-stars while under the influence of ecstasy, kissing co-star Chris Pontius on the head of his penis while drunk, and recalling to the media about being taken, unresponsive, from his apartment by first responders after ingesting five bars of Xanax.

"If you gave me a pill, and I didn't know what it was, I didn't care," said Steve-O, shortly before launching into some of the most shocking footage on the video. This included self-shot scenes in a hotel room where, after using PCP, cocaine and marijuana, he became obsessed with sending an email to rapper 50 Cent (despite lacking any means of contacting him); blowing cocaine residue congealed in nasal mucus onto a beer can and then smoking the residue; convulsing after using nitrous oxide, and recalling his experiences with ingesting household products (video head cleaner and aluminum cleaner). 

After years of what can only be described as self-abuse, Steve-O was committed to a psychiatric ward by Johnny Knoxville and his Jackass co-stars in 2008. In 2018, he celebrated a decade of sobriety. Steve-O has remained active posting videos on his YouTube channel and touring, and has discussed the possibility of a fourth Jackass film.

Response to the video was overwhelmingly positive, with one follower writing, "Thank you for your honesty and putting this out there. We shouldn't be ashamed of our past, we should learn from it and celebrate how far we've come."
