In a new candid interview with The Fix, television foodie and Vassar alumnus Andrew Zimmern '84 talks about his freshman year experience.

"By the time I was a freshman in college, I’d experimented with—and fallen in love with—heroin," he says.

Zimmern's addiction to drugs and alcohol led him to contemplate suicide. Luckily, he has now been clean and sober for almost twenty years.

After doing heroin, eating cow testicles and all that other junk probably isn't so bad.

There was a guy in my freshman and sophomore years 1973-1975 who was a heroin addict. He managed to graduate but later died from a drug overdose.

It's good that he has gotten out the habit. Thanks.
