This was after he already admitted to cheating on her with prostitutes when he traveled for work abroad.
But there were troubling signs of what was to come years before, she wrote.
The couple wed in 1993 and by 2001 Biden was showing signs of alcoholism.
Buhle recalled this was around the time Biden’s drinking ‘spiral[ed] from social to problematic.’
‘One Saturday morning when we had friends visiting, Hunter walked into the kitchen looking as if he hadn’t gone to sleep. I was making pancakes as I watched him pull a bottle of Jack Daniel’s out of the cabinet,’ she recalled.
‘”Hunter! What are you doing?” I said. “It’s ten a.m.!”‘ she wrote. ‘I don’t think he knew what time it was, and he still seemed drunk. He laughed and put the bottle back.’
‘We all stared,’ she added.
The years 2015 and 2016, leading up to the couple’s 2017 divorce, were particularly rough for Buhle.
Beau Biden died in May 2015, leading Hunter to spend more and more time with Beau’s widow Hallie and their kids.
‘Our therapist told me Hunter needed to be up there, helping Hallie. “But what about his sobriety?” I asked her,’ Buhle wrote, with the therapist responding that ‘being with Hallie and her kids was an important part of Hunter’s grieving.’
But with the crack pipe discovery, Buhle realized he wasn’t sober, and she said she ‘called and texted Hunter compulsively’ through the fall of 2015.
‘There were charges at Lake Tahoe at a nail salon and a charge for two lift tickets. I found a credit card charge for $10,000 at a hot tub store in Los Angeles. I found hundreds at liquor stores and strip clubs,’ she recalled.

‘The whole time, he told me he was healthy and sober – and I was crazy,’ she said.
She said she told Biden that she was ‘the one person actually trying to get him sober.’
‘It became my own kind of addiction,’ she wrote. ‘I didn’t want to admit, to myself or anyone else, how unhealthy our relationship had become, so my struggle was just one more secret.’
The biggest secret to be revealed came in November 2016 when her daughter Finnegan summoned Buhle to her therapist Debbie’s office.
‘I’d taken all three girls to see Debbie a few times to discuss Beau’s illness and Hunter’s drinking,’ Buhle described.
‘What happened?’ Buhle asked Finnegan, who told her mother she didn’t want to talk about it over the phone.
‘Three miles later I was at Debbie’s house. I went straight through to the sunroom and found Finnegan curled in a chair, holding a pillow while she wept. I wrapped my arms around her. “Everything will be okay. All right?” I told her. “I love you,”‘ Buhle recalled.
Finnegan and her sister Naomi asked Debbie to deliver Buhle the news.
‘”Debbie,” Finny said once we had Naomi on speakerphone, “can you tell her? We can’t do it,”‘ Buhle wrote. ‘Debbie looked me in the eye and calmly said, “Kathleen, Hunter’s having an affair with Hallie.”‘
Buhle said all the could utter was ‘oh my God.’
‘This was all I said. Was this what shock felt like?’ she mused.
She asked her daughters how they knew.
‘We found his phone,’ Finnegan told her, with Naomi chiming in, ‘There were text messages between them.’
Buhle recalled that she could see ‘Finnegan’s face relaxing now that the secret was out and I hadn’t fallen apart.’
‘If anything, I felt a strange vindication,’ Buhle said. ‘Not only had I not been crazy, but it was so much worse than I could have imagined. I was shocked, but not heartbroken. Heartbreak had already flattened my self-esteem that past year.’
Debbie told Buhle that, ‘we called Hunter,’ and so the cat was out of the bag. ‘We told him we found the phone and we knew,’ the therapist said.
‘She looked directly at me. “From now on, Kathleen, no more secrets. I told the girls that from this day forward, you will tell them the whole truth,”‘ Buhle wrote.
‘No more secrets,’ the author added. ‘The idea was a relief.’
