Donald Trump Jr. Just Came Forward About An Addiction That He Didn’t Think…

Uncategorized

Just like many Americans struggling with overdrinking, alcohol abuse seems to be closer to the Trump family, as Trump’s brother died at a young age.

And now Donald Trump Jr., who is 41 years old, bravely come forward with an alarming admission about his lack of self-control around booze and drinking.

Going back to family history, Trump’s brother, Fred Trump Jr., died in 1981 after years of abusing alcohol. He was just forty-two years old when he passed away from the addiction that runs in the Trump blood.

Trump made fighting the opioid epidemic a key aspect of his 2016 campaign and regularly said he understood the battle with addiction from watching his brother struggle.

Meanwhile, Trump Jr. has decided to admit his alcohol problem in his new book, Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us. In that book, he admits he has a problem with drinking and decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and quit alcohol because, like his uncle Freddie, Donald Jr. “didn’t know how to drink in moderation.”

Trump Jr. worked as a bartender for a year in Aspen, Colorado, after college, and wrote that his drinking became a “recipe for disaster.”

In 2001, Trump Jr. spent 11 hours in jail after he was arrested and charged with public drunkenness.

“Once I got going, it wasn’t easy to stop me — which, when you’re in college, isn’t a huge problem, as long as you’re getting your work done,” Trump Jr. wrote in his book, “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us.” “But once I started thinking about a career and a life beyond school, it was. To be honest, I didn’t know how to drink in moderation.”

“I have an all-or-nothing personality; just ask anyone who knows me,” Trump Jr. wrote in “Triggered.” “Being compulsive works for some things — give me a job to do, and I’m going to get it done — but it’s not so good for vices.”

Because Trump Jr. knew that alcohol would end him, he had to give it up.

He continued: “One thing about us Trumps is that we have plenty of willpower. I would come to find that it was easier for me to ignore alcohol than it was to try to control it. Eventually, I would give up drinking for good.”

Because Donald Jr. is forty-one and his uncle Fred died of alcoholism when he was forty-two, Donald Jr. knew that he had to quit drinking or meet an early grave. Making a choice to quit drinking was a good decision for Trump’s eldest son. He has lost a lot of weight and sees the world more clearly now.
