Buff Bagwell made a guest appearance on 83 Weeks. He gave an update on the state of his sobriety:

"I just graduated Tangu, which is my aftercare in Atlanta here. I completed 30 days at Blackberry recovery in the North Georgia area and completed that after 30 days. I moved into something I've never done before, which is something called Aftercare. It's something that I always thought, and I've learned with addiction, that 30 days isn't enough. You always try it and think, 'Well, I've been 30, so I'm good now.' I did three or four other times like that and it's just not.”

“When you take on the Aftercare part, and continue your sobriety with numerous days, with the 90 meetings in 90 days, all the stuff that people hear, but stuff that people don't do, and I actually did it. I did the 90 in 90. I'm not a day counter. My sobriety date is August 27. That's actually 148 days today. They got a new app now that you can check out. It's 148 days today sober, and I've never been 148 days sober in my life. I mean, I really don't think so. When you talk about complete sobriety, 148 days is huge.”

“So I'm very excited. I am doing things I didn't think I could do, like I can sleep at night without being medicated. From years on the road, I didn't think I could do that, but I can and it's great. In the daytime with my life, going to the gym and stuff, it was a pill for everything. It was a pill to go to the gym. It was a pill to relax. It was a pill to go to sleep. It was a pill to wake up. Then alcohol with it, it just gets to be a crazy world and I was already living in one called professional wrestling, and so it added right to that, but I got a corral on it. I got grips of it, and you know, I'm sober. I feel great. I've been told I look great. So that's all fantastic. So thumbs up over here. I just feel fantastic."
