Nobody has ever had an easy time with substance abuse recovery, and they will always have to struggle with those demons.
Even Mike Sorrentino, The Situation, who is in fantastic shape, is having a rough time.
Just two months after entering the facility to kick his prescription-medication addiction, Mike is ready to speak about it.
Here's what he said:
“Ever since I’ve been out, I’m not gonna lie … it’s not easy. But at the same time, where I’m at right now, I’m at a good place. But it took a little bit to get there. In the beginning? A lot of rainy days, so to speak. A lot of rainy days. I’m not gonna lie, it feels like you’re not gonna recover. It feels like an impossible deed … [but] day-by-day it gets better.”
The scary thing is that he's returning to the show, too. The Jersey Shore has to be one of the most dangerously tempting places for him to be, and some people wonder if it's a good idea at all.
We wonder that too. If he's confident enough to stay clean, we're all for it — because the show wouldn't be the same without him.
If he isn't confident 100%, though, we'd rather have him healthy and sober than the show feel complete!
Find the strength, Mike! You can do it!
