MILWAUKEE (AP) - Former president George W. Bush says he plans to go back to shying away from the limelight once he's done promoting his book.
He spoke Wednesday night to 2,500 people to raise money for Teen Challenge Wisconsin, a faith-based drug and alcohol restoration program.
The 64-year-old also talked about his struggles with alcoholism, which are detailed in his new memoir, "Decision Points." He said quitting drinking at age 40 was one of the toughest decision ever.
He said anyone can struggle with addiction, "Even those of us who ended up with the fanciest title of all."
He also spoke of going "from 100 miles per hour to zero" after leaving the White House and walking through his then-new Dallas neighborhood with his dog Barney and a plastic bag.
