Want to know the full story?
I want to use my platform to potentially save someone’s life, and to bring the pain, grief, and reality of drugs into the open. Two years ago, one my best friends, Luke, died suddenly of a heroin overdose in my home. He was a brilliant and creative guy who had come to stay with me for a month in NYC because of a new crypto currency position he had gotten. The amount of pain, trauma, and emotional damage that this event caused in my life and to those that knew him was something I wasn’t prepared for. I lost my relationship, many parts of my sense of self, the stability of believing in a rational world where people just don’t die young, and most of all, my friend forever.
I want everyone to understand what an incredible risk they are putting themselves in when they decide to take drugs. Your life is beautiful and special, you will be missed, and the people that loved and cared about you will be incredibly broken—all for one bad decision. Please don’t do drugs. Don’t even try drugs and if you’re taking drugs or addicted to drugs, please seek treatment. You have so much to live for.
Thank you for helping me honor the memory of my friend who was so instrumental in my success and life.
