Oh for heaven's sake, you'd think Gascoigne was the only alcoholic who behaves like this! Seriously. Having a last drink/taking one last hit is almost a ritual for people going into rehab. Courage, fear of what's next, clinging on to their 'comfort blanket'. He's an addict, he's weak, he's terrified of failing again, and probably also terrified of a future without the one thing that helps him cope. That's what rehab is for, to change that mindset and help him see that a life without booze is a possibility.

I hope this isn't going to be another one of those 2-week celebrity 'rehabs' though. What he needs is intensive structured rehab for a minimum of 3 months and then see where he's at. Anyway, best of luck to him.
Great post I agree, really hope like you say that he sticks at rehab for at least 3 months and this is the 'one' that finally registers. I think the big problem with Gazza is lack of direction/career once the rehab is over & thus not a lot to fill his day. Hopefully he can find something to throw his time into and keep himself on the straight and narrow
