WAM WAM Oct 13-14 Ben Cox Oct 17, 2012 | 9:04Benjamin Cox has lived through a lot of turmoil in his life... Much of it caused by his own behavior. From a promising career as an ER nurse, Cox turned to drugs. Even using his position to steal narcotics to keep his habit going. But Cox wasn't finished falling yet. He got caught. Benjamin Cox tells his story in a self-published book called "My Name is Ben and I'm and Addict". His book has sold out and now he's attracted a publisher. Cox stopped by our studio to tell me about his descent to the depths of drug addition... And the rude awakening that put him on the road to recovery.
