The Situation Blames DWTS For His Pill Addiction!

the situation mike sorrentino dwts drugs pills addiction blame

Hold up!

We're not sure how he can blame the show because he agreed to be on it, knowing an injury could happen at any moment!

BUT, Jersey Shore's Mike Sorrentino is now claiming he injured his neck during his season on Dancing with the Stars and that's where his prescription painkiller problem began.

While we feel for his struggle to stay sober — something he'll have to battle for the rest of his life — we don't think it's fair to blame the show when he knew what he was getting into!

Mike explains the pain he suffered post-injury:

"All I had to do was get dressed for a family function and I couldn’t do that. The shirt was laid out, the belt, the pants, everything. The shower was on. I couldn’t even get out of bed. If I can’t [get dressed], how am I going to continue?"

Here's the thing: he's STILL taking meds for the injury, which makes the struggle not to abuse even harder! He has to go to counseling to keep his addiction in check, along with being a paid spokesman for the pills, helping spread awareness about opiate prescription painkiller addictions.

Blaming the injury is one thing — blaming the show FOR the injury is another!

We're sorry ANY of it happened to you at all, Mike, but the risk is there for everyone who signs up!

    I don't see where he blames DWTS - he just says he was injured on the show and that's why he started with the meds. Why do you always have to stir the shit pot?

    What a JOKE; he takes a couple pills FOR PAIN and HE'S ADDICTED FOR LIFE; what a bunch of 12-Step religious AA/NA cult nonsense…

    No he doesn't. Perez, let him get hold of his situation (pun) and wrestle it to the ground by any means necessary. A person who gets physically injured may take painkillers of many kinds, (alcohol, pills, weed, HGH, steroids). Once the injury is healed and the use goes on the problem is mental and physical but not injury related.
    Taking a pill does not make you an addict. Nature and/or nurture may.

    Physio and rehab will do a lot more to cure a soft tissue injury than pills will over the long haul. If you can't sleep and have a big day, a pain pill once in a while maybe, but pills won't make it better. You have to, to get to the point where you don't need anything again.
