There is just something about meeting and talking to strangers who seem extremely interested to know what it was like for me as an addict – and minority while behind bars – to spend nearly six years in prison, and learn how I was finally able to “arrest” my past addictions to alcohol, drugs and gambling.
As bad as that experience was for me, not only did I come out of it as a much better person, but I am now able to help others who might be going down that same destructive path of either having trouble with an addiction, or living with low self-esteem and self-confidence.
I wrote “Jew in Jail” as I was serving my sentence in prison, and was brutally honest about everything I was going through at the time.
Whenever I go to book signings, speaking engagements, or A.A., N.A. & G.A. meetings, I am the same exact way, because my purpose is not to glorify anything in my past, but to demonstrate that change is possible if one wants it badly enough.
If I can help you, my readers, in any way possible, please feel free to reach out to me.
Like we say in the meetings, “We can’t keep what we have, unless we give it away!”
I also hope you decide to read “Jew in Jail,” because I am very proud of how I was able to write it under the toughest conditions imaginable, and want my story to inspire others!
Simply put, after doing things wrong for so many years, I just want to live my life now the correct way, while also assisting those who are in need as much as I can.
