When the morning came and the clock began to approach nine, my feet took me to Alko. I cried the whole way, Varpukari revealed to the magazine.

    – I didn’t allow the previous night’s pranks to affect the next day’s work performance. I hated myself when I wasn’t in the best shape of a hangover. I struggled and tried, I used all my resources. As an addict, I tried to convince myself that alcohol had no effect on work output, but of course it did. I was never really at my best, Varpukari told Seura in an interview.

    of Finnish Entrepreneurs in the interview Varpukari described that he had turned from CEO and athlete into a “piss-in-your-pants human ruin”.

    Getting sober

    In addition to losing numerous jobs, Varpukari was eventually to lose his life as well. In 2019, at the end of his last remaining tube, he ended up in the hospital due to a ten-day psychosis.
