DEC 09, 2020 – John Lehr is a comedic actor, writer and producer who works in television, film & theater. In other words, John is a comedian and actor who also has control issues. You will probably know him best from his time as the Geico Caveman.
When we first met John about a year ago, we asked if he was “out” in the sense of publicly acknowledging that he is in recovery. His response? “Yes, I am fully broken.” Then he told us a story about the time he got arrested while high on LSD and booze. We were referring to anonymity, but its good to know he’s just as broken as the rest of us.
John has been in recovery for over 20 years and is very open about his past struggles and the importance of an authentic sense of humor. In this episode he talks about his road to recovery and how he stays sober in Tinsel Town.
You can find more information about John Lehr on his website and you can hear from him on his podcast, Generation Gab, where he chats with a millennial about the differences (and similarities) between generations.
This podcast was started to get the word out that recovery is possible, no matter what situation you may find yourself in. Whether you are struggling with addiction yourself or you are the family member/friend of someone who is suffering, please know that there is hope for recovery.
