Q. If you are in recovery, what was your Drug of Choice? When did you stop using?
A. Cocaine mostly and Heroin was there so I could thankfully sleep.
Q. Have you ever been arrested and if so, for what?
A. I was arrested when Ii was 14 years old for writing graffiti on a subway train in NYC. Later in 1994, I was arrested for conspiracy to commit a terrorist act on an airplane. It’s a long story, but basically I made a very poorly timed joke on an airplane. I was 3 years sober at the time.
Q. Do you think addiction is an illness, disease, a choice or a wicked twist of fate?
A. I believe addiction is a part of the human condition. Everyone faces it in one form or another. However, some of us face it in ways that require a massive spiritual and psychological overhaul to survive it. I write a lot about addiction being a Dis-Ease, or a condition characterized by distance from ease.
