Si Robertson from Duck Dynasty has a new tell-all book where he talks about the darker times in his past, including battles with alcoholism and suicide attempts.
“I drank so much beer and whiskey in Vietnam that I decided I would quit drinking alcohol altogether once I returned home,” he writes in his book. “I saw what alcohol was doing to me in Vietnam and realized I needed to stop for good.”
RadarOnline reports that Si discusses he and his brother's struggles before the success of their TV show, including a mother who was diagnosed as manic-depressive and "spent a lot of time in hospitals and the state mental institution."
He also talks about his son Scott, who suffered brain damage due to a liver condition shortly after he was born. His mother caught him attempting to jump out of a second-story window. His son was later diagnosed with Asperger’s, and Si says that he lives a full life today.
