So, I dislike the guy, but reading the article it seems it's possible based on the research and the folks that evaluated him.

Of course it does... it’s an SF Gate article written by Newsom (and his friends).

I can’t speak from experience, but I know plenty of people who have admitted to having problems and the only way to avoid future issues is to not drink.

Really I’m just pointing out how much of a hypocrite he is.

not everybody that has a "drinking problem" is actually an alcoholic. That's a specific condition. Addiction and bad decision making are not always connected, though one often leads to the other, in both directions. I'm no Gavin fan, but plenty of people do just stop and change their habits.

Teflon Newsom getting another pass for his lies...even on Calguns.

He publicly stated he had a substance abuse problem and was going to rehab....now he denies it.

There it is.

Gavin needs to STFU and EAD. Bad enough he’s in the lead for governor.

I'd love to be rich enough to buy a Gavin a truck load of hard liquor and a shiny Mercedes with no brakes.

Sure... but he didn’t stop. He just says “it’s a miracle, I’m cured!” and starts drinking again, saying he can handle it.

My guess is he never stopped, he just didn’t drink in public, and now someone caught him drinking so this is his excuse. “Oh, don’t worry, I resolved that issue. I’m good now.”

Why you gotta go make it seem like Mike’s Hard Lemonade isn’t the best thing ever?

He was accused of using cocaine .. I wonder what ever happened to those accusations. He denied it at the time, but his denial didn't seems genuine to me.
