The Addiction Recovery Hub –
Today’s guest is a new friend of mine, Rob Lohman. Rob Lohman and I met because as you might have heard, I’ve been moving. We had a third baby and we didn’t have enough bedrooms. So, we’d been looking for a different house and Rob was interested in renting my house for a really cool mission actually.
Rob Lohman’s Story
Falling into addiction and being ripped out of addiction. That’s kind of my thing, but no. I grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Most of my family lived back home in Indiana. I was that kid that was just wired differently than most kids is kind of the way I always look at it. The minute I found alcohol, it was just like game on. The light bulbs went off and the funny thing about it was that I was your kid that knocked on your door and sold you magazines. After a while, they just said, “What are you selling now, Rob?” So, I was a confident little kid, but I was really insecure.
We went to church and all that kind of fun stuff. We moved from Fort Wayne, Indiana to Fort Worth, Texas when I was nine. Then at age 14, I was hanging out at this little youth event. One of the guys said, “Hey Lohman. You wanna go drink some beer out in the alleyway here?” I was like, “Sure let’s go.” So, it was myself, this guy, can’t remember his name at all and two very pretty girls. Instantly I thought – this is kind of fun. I slammed three beers like it was nothing. They were nursing their little beers. From that point, it should have been the clarity of maybe I have a problem because I come from a long line of alcoholics.
Then it was just kind of from 14 to 29, that was my drinking career. It seemed like everything I did had a hint of alcohol with it and a hint of manipulating situations to benefit myself. My business card could have said – Rob Lohman – drinker.
With alcohol, I felt like just the insecurities kind of went away. Because I was always shy around girls and I was also the class clown. So, I hid my insecurities by being that guy. Alcohol made Rob Lohman the cool guy. I was the popular kid but really empty inside if that kind of makes sense. I was covering up a lot of my own insecurities. I’m not really sure from where those came, but I just know that when I drank, I felt more confident in who I was.
I kind of had principals and teachers in my back pocket because
as an addict, you’re really good at playing the field and playing everybody. So, that just kind of became what I felt like was an art and I was a chameleon and I felt like that was a gift that God had given me, but it was a huge, huge detriment to me, but I just felt good.
The hangovers and all those kind of things, it just kind of was part of the game. From the beginning, just alcohol was my thing. I always said I would never ever do drugs. That was my one promise to myself that I would never do drugs. I held on to that until the first semester of college. One of my buddies was like, “Hey Lohman, you want to get high?” I thought, “No, I’m not touching that stuff. I like drinking too much.” Just a little bit, right? Just that little bit. I remember smoking pot. It felt really cool and I felt good. Then that just led into acid and mushrooms and kind of whatever you put before me, but alcohol and gambling has always been there as well.
So, gambling and alcohol have been two things that have kind of been driving forces in my own lack of emotional maturity.
I was really empty inside. Completely, but then I met a girl and she drank worse than I did, but all my friends drank. So, we met in and ended up getting married. It was a very short lived marriage. Let’s put it that way. I graduated with my MBA and my uncle hired me to work for his real estate company back in Indiana. So, we moved to Indiana thinking life would change if we got away from all of our drinking friends. The problem was there go the both of us in our own dysfunction. It was not a healthy marriage. It was very short lived for a lot of reasons along the way. We ended up getting divorced and then about six months later, I ended up getting clean.
Tune in to the complete podcast to hear how it took arson and prison for Rob to really secure who he was and get back to the roots of who is Rob Lohman.

Apr 26 Hour 1: Rob Arlett for Senate; Kanye West loves Trump; John Legend is a liar
GUEST: Rob Arlett Republican running for U.S. Senate in Delaware as a Trump guy. THEN: Kanye West loves President Donald Trump. Black people are not allowed to leave the Democratic plantation. Jesse did because the Democrats are against God, family, freedom, the military, the country, and they don’t respect black people. John Legend is a liar: He gives out fake examples of “racism” but the truth is blacks have a bad reputation — it’s about character, and not color. Callers talk to Jesse including a black conservative Republican who says the Left is trying to destroy Christianity and blacks. A caller says kids in Black Lives Matter are just confused — he saw Jesse’s interview with them on The Fallen State The NAACP, Congressional Black Caucus, and BLM are using blacks. Parents who allow their adult children to stay home past 18 don’t love their kids.
Apr 26 Hour 2: Ronny Jackson lynched; Family advocate denigrates father, too close to mother
Ronny Jackson withdraws as VA nominee due to accusations from evil Democrats. Stand up and fight back. Caller “Pepe” says John Legend should have a nickname calling him a liar. He asks about white groups and men’s clubs which are under attack, then talks about white South Africans. He mentions Dinesh D’Souza and America. He says Nelson Mandela, MLK, and Arab Spring were communist-influenced. Jesse asks him to call again and get straight to his point. Caller Debbie of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, says black attitudes toward whites changed after the election of Barack Obama. She was raised not to speak in the South. Caller Jim of Columbus, OH, advocates for the natural family, and telling the truth about blacks. (Support The Fallen State on Patreon.) Jim talks about his parents, saying his father was a horrible example, an abuser, a drunk, womanizer, but his mother was a Christian. Jesse suggests he was too close to his mother. Jesse urges him to do the Silent Prayer. Caller Willie of Omaha, Nebraska, talks about white violence — white guys committing terror attacks. We need to get angry about it, Willie says. Jesse holds him over to third hour.
Apr 26 Hour 3: Blacks Complain About White Violence & Walter Scott; Gym Discrimination! #MeToo
Willie of Omaha, Nebraska, says that the average white guy will attack non-whites to ensure survival of the white race, after hearing Jesse or Trump demonizing nonwhites. Willie brings up Jesse talking about Walter Scott who was shot in the back by the cop after running and fighting. But people accuse the cops of being guilty without even hearing the trial. He brings up Rodney King, but Jesse points out he ran from the cops and put others’ life at risk. Jesse brings up Louis Farrakhan, whom Willie follows to a point. Caller Marie of New Jersey says she was a Democrat for 30 years with her family, but they voted for Trump, so she’s like a Kanye, in the basket of deplorables. Caller Tony of Chelsea, Michigan, tells a story of visiting Second Ebenezer Church in Detroit, led by Bishop Edgar Vann, and seeing Todd Hall, a “prophet” who was getting money from the blacks, and cursing people who frowned at him. Another caller Michael from Cary, North Carolina, says we have to be careful of false prophets. Jesse puts him on hold and plays a news report of two black men allegedly being wrongly kicked out of their LA Fitness gym. They’re crying “racial profiling.” Jesse said #MeToo! His gym Equinox hate him because he’s black and supports President Trump. Blacks aren’t supposed to leave the plantation. Caller Michael disagrees with Jesse about why fathers leave and mothers turning children away from the father. He brings up Walter Scott being “unarmed,” but Jesse points out he was running, and the cop didn’t know whether he was armed or not. Jesse announces BOND annual Men’s Conference Saturday, June 16, the day before Father’s Day. James and caller Darrell of Washington talk with Jesse about “the false community” of Kekistan, and rejecting identity politics, and symbols of Jesus with Pepe the Frog. James tells a little about 4chan.
