1 I hate the misconception that I joined a band and became a heroin addict. I started shooting up when I was a teenager. I was a practicing alcoholic in my day job; I was working in a computer company, I had top-secret clearance for what I was doing, and I was turning up for work in the same clothes I had worn the day before, having stayed up all night on ecstasy.
