To the Editor,
A few years ago I watched Jay Leno on the late night talk show on NBC. That night his “A” list guest was the late great comedian Robin Williams. That night he was funny and got your attention.
I knew the question was going to come and it did. Jay asked Robin, “Tell us about your cocaine problem and how it’s coming?”
“Well, when I first started doing cocaine, it was my big adventure. Then it was my big secret. Then it was my big nightmare.”
He threw big lavish parties at his home in the Hollywood Hills. This went on for years. He blew millions and millions of dollars. When his money was gone, his fake friends disappeared. He was living on his royalties from “Mork and Mindy” and his movies.
I tell people this is not a recreational drug. This is a dangerous drug. It will take everything you have, including your life. It took my younger brother’s life at 33 years of age. He left two young sons with no father.
Go get help if you need it.
I read that three-quarters of people that go to cocaine rehab re-offend, so if you go, go with a very positive attitude.
