Ohh, That Gala!

By Ben Spielberg Six months ago, if I’d have pictured myself half a year later, the last image to come to my mind would be myself, wearing a full tuxedo inside of the Beverly Hilton, thanking strangers and board members for undoubtedly saving both my life and the lives of others.

It consists of robbing, lying, cheating and manipulating. You do anything you can to get what you want and destroy anything that gets in your way. That’s  the kicker about drug addiction that many can’t grasp; it’s so powerful that nothing but an act of providence can stop it, or at least that’s my experience.
