Danny Trejo, an actor, may portray a tough guy on screen, but he has a soft spot for his family and enjoying their successes.
The Machete franchise’s leading man recently congratulated his son Gilbert on a significant accomplishment on social media. The 34-year-old son of Trejo celebrated eight years of sobriety on July 17.
If you have a child who is struggling with addiction, please know that my son is now my best friend despite the fact that I didn’t think he would! There is a chance! Trejo tweeted something.
The actor has been sober for more than 50 years, so he is familiar with the sober lifestyle. He didn’t start using marijuana until he was eight years old. He drank for the first time at the age of 12, and by 14 he was using heroin.
At the age of 24, he finally made the decision to quit drinking after spending years in and out of jail and attending numerous 12-step meetings. He didn’t waste any time before fully integrating himself into the recovery scene and becoming a drug counselor.
From August 23, 1968, to the present, “everything is just like a dream,” he declared. “I have nothing to grumble about. There is nothing I need to fix.
Trejo is still an advocate for recovery today. He is also very honest about how difficult it is to maintain sobriety.
Danielle, the 78-year-old’s daughter, has been sober for a number of years.
