"Tears were streaming down my face, and something told me to turn around and go back home. I think it was God."
I've been sober almost three years now and believe it or not, I still hang out with my drinking and drugging buddies.
I have some pretty high and mighty friends. Musicians and rock stars. They're all right there for me when I need them, in quick succession, stored in my record cabinet alphabetically from A to Z. At my disposal, for whenever it was time to crack open a beer or light a joint. I kept my friends in the basement, which was my sanctuary and where solitude was my only friend.
