In an interview with ABC News, President Bush talked openly about his past alcohol addiction. According to President Bush, “I doubt I’d be standing here if I hadn’t quit drinking whiskey, and beer and wine and all that.”
He went on to say, “Alcohol can compete with your affections. It sure did in my case, affections with your family, or affections for exercise.” Bush stated that he gave up drinking after a night on the town celebrating his 40th birthday in 1986.
