Congrats to The Situation!

In a new interview with People, Mike Sorrentino opens up about his difficulties with drugs and with the law. In case you hadn't heard, the Jersey Shore star was indicted this month on evading taxes for nearly $9 million of income.

Considering how his last tax troubs hurt his recovery process, there was reason to worry.

The reality star was actually sober for nearly two years after going to rehab in 2012. But after being charged with tax evasion for the first time in 2014, he needed a way to cope.

Now, he didn't turn to drugs immediately. Obviously tanning and laundry aren't that good for relieving stress, but the gym was. Until he worked out so hard he cracked his ribs.

It was the painkillers prescribed by a doctor that sent him back down the path of relapse. He laments:

"From there it was just a spiral… Your emotions are blocked. So you really ruin relationships with everyone in your life."

But now The Sitch says he's been sober for an impressive 18 months! And if he can do it, so can you!

He explained his simple thought process for staying healthy:

"It's my life, and I have to take care of it. If I'm not healthy mentally and physically, I'm not going to make it."

That's so true! But, you know, especially if he ends up going to prison.

You can see The Situation at his sober but still wacky-as-hell best when Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars - Family Edition premieres Friday at 9 p.m. EST on WEtv.
