FUN STORY: Few years ago (more like 3ish )showed up lil high to Easter brunch… classic. My old man asked why… said “I dunno makes thing more fun”. He replied how much more fun do you need to have, life is so good. I’m high on life. I never want anything that would take me out of my current life. Being high on life is better then anything else. Long story short… Haven’t smoked since then… just HIGH ON LIFE NOW! Happy & healthy & can’t thank god enough to see another day! Happy 4/20 sorry if that was a buzz kill lol

For serious, you read that right, Patrick decided getting high on life was more thrilling than drugs and he put an end to his wake n’ bake lifestyle. Maybe it was a true Easter miracle. Seriously, how often does a celebrity spawn chose to “walk the righteous path” by giving up drugs before rehab? But Arnold is probably filled with epic tales that translate into very good parenting. What else can you expect from the genius that spearheaded the Terminator franchise?

If you’re looking to be inspired to clean up your lifestyle, Arnold’s here for you as well. These are some of his most memorable moments as an action figure, an icon, a father, and a sobriety coach.
