Jake Roberts discussed trying to help Ric Flair after Flairs hospitalization in a new interview with CY Interview, his new book and more. The highlights are below:

On how hes doing these days: I still struggle with, you know, not really feeling good about myself at times and I certainly give myself a reason to, but you know, enoughs enough and you gotta move on and where Im at these days, man I just want to reach out and help as many people as I can, because I know that each time I do that Im closer to getting my dream come true and thats just to continue to live sober, you know, and to enjoy life.

On working on a new book that covers the first half of his career: Weve got about 600 pages ready to go and right now Im doing my last read. Ive done about four last reads, but this is my last read for sure. Im gonna go through it one last time and just check some things out and release it.

On trying to help WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair after his August hospitalization: I even tried to help Mr. Flair and I hope Ric can do it. Hes sure going at it with the wrong attitude. He thinks he snapped his fingers, that he can just beat it. Theres a lot more to it. Hes in the hospital and hes made that decision to quit drinking. My God I made that decision a million times and he thinks thats all there is to it. Theres a lot more to it because you know why hes in that hospital, that disease we call alcoholism is outside doing pushups getting ready for him to come out of the hospital. Youre in a guarded position in the hospital. You know, theres not a lot of alcohol around.
