“It is such a gift to have my brother, such a thoughtful and smart person back in my life, and by reading his book, you can get to know him... please buy a copy!!!”
Cameron was quite touched by the gesture on his brother’s part and took to the comments section to appreciate him. The eldest son of Michael Douglas wrote:
“My bro… I am so touched by your love and support. So proud of the amazing, intelligent and wise gentleman you have involved into. I love you with all my heart.”
The actress shared a black-and-white photo of her and Cameron on the dance floor during what looked like a wedding day. In the caption, she described the book as a “poignant, honest, cathartic, and at times, terrifying.”
During an interview with People Magazine, Michael and his eldest son talked about his addiction struggles. The 40-year-old recalled that his addiction began with teenage bouts of smoking and drinking.
"There were moments when hope dwindled.. and then it’s just a train out of the station. Life became a series of crises. I thought I was going to lose him.”
Luckily, that didn’t happen. After being about seven years behind bars, Cameron was released in 2016 as a changed man, Page Six reports. He has picked up the pieces of his life and is rebuilding it with each passing day.
He hopes his memoir can help other addicts “seek help-and maybe save a life.”
Cameron is now busy with raising his two-year-old daughter with girlfriend Vivian Theibes and working on kick-starting his acting career.
