Sober Ben Johnson
How one drunk stopped being a drunk
First in a series of videos on getting away from addiction
by Reviewer Rob
I’m going to be doing some “Getting Sober” videos to document ways people kick self-destructive addictions. So for the first of them I sought out Ben Johnson, the owner of the The Casbah (one of the owners) who is also the bartender there. He was a heavy drinker before, and it was wrecking his life. But then he stopped. All of a sudden. Cold turkey. Now he works the bar most every night and when he isn’t pouring he’s often performing in a bar somewhere in one of his bands. And he never touches booze. Not everyone can do that. Listen to his story.
