Insightful to learn it at 31. Some of us never do. I'm only seriously understanding it at 48

Maybe, because he doesn't want to die. What a stupid question, lol.

It wasn't a question lol...

no doubt in my mind that hanging out with Reynolds and seeing first hand how good he still is now that hes sober had an influence on Neen.Pro skater is a dream job,might as well keep it going as long as you can

it's so true, "youth is wasted on the young" your body can process everything so fast young, so you think it's just always gona be there. I admire addicts that have what it takes to kick H more than maybe anyone. those who still havent, I sympathise with, what a terrifying existence, self-imposed slavery

Justin Bowling (15 days ago)
QUESTION: Can anyone attest to weed making them age quicker or get weak? Alcohol and man-made stuff is well proven. I almost feel like coffee addiction has aged me and kept my body under hydrated and muscles sore and knotted up... But What about cannabis? Will it make you unhealthy all by itself? I don't know the answer to this because I haven't met anyone who used weed but NEVER smoked tobacco, or drank alcohol, or took pills, or ate a bunch of fake dead crap food. I've heard it increases estrogen in men, and lowers white blood cell count, but I don't actually know if it's scientifically proven or not?

J. Fomoiri (24 days ago)
for all the stretching, push ups and chlorophyll (what makes plants green, and his statement nonsense) one bad fall and/or whack on the head is enough to end his skateboarding for eternity dreams

He is 9 yrs younger than me, but I learned a lot from him. Alcohol is not cool. I hate who I become when I drink and forget what I said or did. Thanks for posting this.

I can relate. I’m in my late thirties now and I learned to skate when I was around 30, I was a late bloomer but doesn’t stop me to try this out. Now I do run, I surf and skate a lot at the same time I stayed healthy as much as I can.

Nowadays, I'm passing that partying phase. Is like he said: "Partying is easy". Yes it's easy and it's so funny, but it's not a healthy lifestyle for sure. And I feel that I didn't have a complete weekend, if I don't go to party. I want to drop away that feeling so hardly... Seriously.

I'll just randomly click on this video from time to time. It's inspirational to see Neen turn things around with his health and view on things but still enjoy boarding. Thanks vice for digging into Neen to share with us.
