Hunter Biden’s forthcoming memoir shares in graphic detail his downfall into crack-cocaine addiction — and even allowed a homeless drug dealer to move in with him.

The president’s son tells how his first drink was a glass of champagne aged just 8 — leading to a lifetime of abusing drink and then hard drugs.

“I’ve bought crack cocaine on the streets of Washington, DC, and cooked up my own inside a hotel bungalow in Los Angeles,” Hunter writes in the prologue to “Beautiful Things,” according to excerpts in the New York Times.

“I’ve been so desperate for a drink that I couldn’t make the one-block walk between a liquor store and my apartment without uncapping the bottle to take a swig.

“In the last five years alone, my two-decades-long marriage has dissolved, guns have been put in my face, and at one point I dropped clean off the grid, living in $59-a-night Super 8 motels off I-95 while scaring my family even more than myself,” he writes in the book set for release Tuesday.

After his first childhood taste of bubbly, Hunter says he went on to drink heavily after work in his 20s, saying he “could always drink five times more than anyone else.”

He would go on 16-hour benders — and even spent a month in an apartment bingeing on vodka while his father was then Vice President, according to the Times’ excerpts.

Hunter got so desperate he would cut the plastic nub in vodka bottles to make it flow faster, and “didn’t eat anything much beyond what was available at the liquor store.”

“Doritos, pork rinds, ramen noodles. Eventually my stomach couldn’t even handle the noodles,” he recalls of his diet as his weight plummetted.

He repeatedly relapsed after attempts in rehab, and recalls going to a Los Angeles homeless encampment to score drugs.

“I went through and stepped around people curled up on thin pieces of cardboard. Beyond them, I noticed a tilting, unlit tent. It was pitch black. All I saw was the gun pointed at my face,” he writes in the excerpts.

It got so bad he even let a homeless addict who he bought crack from to move in with him.

“The relationship was symbiotic,” he writes. “It was two crack addicts who couldn’t find their way out of a paper bag. A one-act crack farce,” he recalls.

He would but “clean urine” to cheat drug tests and tried numerous wild treatments for his crack addiction — etamine infusions, psychoactive compounds and 5-MeO-DMT therapy, “which employs the gland secretions of the Sonoran Desert toad.”

Hunter repeatedly fell off the wagon, even after tearful appeals from his father, he writes, detailing an emotional moment after an attempted family intervention.

“He grabbed me, swung me around and hugged me. He held me tight in the dark and cried for the longest time,” he wrote of his dad.

“He never let me forget that all was not lost. He never abandoned me, never shunned me, never judged me, no matter how bad things got,” he wrote of the now-president.

Hunter insists he is now clean, and credits new wife Melissa Cohen for his sobriety.

He recalls how he told her he was a crack addict within hours of them meeting and falling in love — with her insisting, “Not anymore. You’re finished with that.”
