Bush: Path to White House Began with Decision to Stop Drinking
Former President George W. Bush writes in his forthcoming book that his decision to quit drinking alcohol at age 40 turned his life around and set him on a course that would ultimately lead to the Presidency, the Associated Press reported May 25.
Bush's book, “Decision Points,” opens with an account of the moment when wife Laura pressed him to decide whether he loved drinking more than his children. Bush said he also needed to determine whether partying or Laura was more important.
Bush said that he realized that he had an addictive personality and decided to quit drinking.
