Surely when he looks in the mirror he knows something is wrong, his face is bloated like Micky Rourke's was after surgery

sadly, yes.

I feel sorry for the people around him who put their faith (and money) in him with respect to that rehab trip earlier this year. He's let them down big time.

I don't think the shopkeeper would be licensed to allow consumption of alcohol on the premises.

I feel sorry for both him and the people who have to put up with him. Nobody's a winner in that scenario

Yeah I agree, the shopkeeper was in the wrong. But what the hell is going through Gazza's mind???

And what do his friends think, who spent all that money on his recent rehab stay.

I'm sure they've done everything they can but they can't save Gazza from himself.

It gives me no pleasure to see this... but the inescapable fact is, the man is going to die. He's beyond help.

His addiction has properly beaten him now, there's no going back. I feel for him and those who love him.

His next drink. That's all he cares about and it will be the death of him. I get no pleasure in saying that but IMHO he is beyond help. I knew from his Alan Carr interview when he said he couldn't 'rule out' drinking again that it was the beginning of the end.

Alcoholism once it reaches that stage is a horrible thing to witness.

I thought that. When the inevitable happens I doubt anyone will be in the least surprised

I agree. For some people, their so addicted to alcohol that they have to keep drinking it or the physical repercussions can be really bad, like they cant stop entirely or it affects their body, so I hear? thats when its got really bad but I dont know his personal circumstances.

I should imagine that if he was locked in a room and not allowed alcohol that this plan of action would not work as he would need to wean himself off of it.

It's ok his pals giving him money for rehab but he needs support on a personal level, where's his mate that one who allegedly got him drinking excessively in the first place, nine bellies or something, why doesn't he help?

Of course they will all be there crying at his funeral

All these celebrities paid for him to go to rehab and yet this is what he does. He's a selfish prat who doesn't deserve people forking out money to help him. He even admitted that he couldn't say that he'd stay away from the drink. I sometimes wonder if he actually wants to be free of it.

I'm sure he could have gotten help to gradually get him off it. I'm just getting the impression that he's not bothered. If he's too hooked on it to be able to get off it even gradually, fair enough. If he can get off it, what's he playing at? I'm guessing the desire to be free of it isn't strong enough.

The shopkeeper is not responsible for Paul Gascoigne's inability to stop drinking, no more than his friends or family are. He is a chronic alcoholic and if that shop didn't sell it to him, another one down the road would have. It's not even a choice for him at this stage, it's a chronic need.

No happy endings for Paul. His biggest love is booze and until/unless he falls out of love with it, this is just another sad snapshot of the rest of his probably short and miserable life. Sadly for him, he never gave rehab a chance, never put in the time, never reached the point where a life without booze was a possibility for him, never genuinely wanted to give up, just went through the motions - that's apparent in all his interviews and his half-arsed attempts at rehab.

Not a criticism of him, just a harsh fact of chronic addiction and he's been in the grip of it for decades. Some come through it, some don't and it's clear Paul is sadly a 'don't'.

Yes sadly agree. Only a matter of time now. Isn't addiction a dreadful thing and goes to show you that all the money, help, foreign rehab centers, family support mean zippo if you don't want to help yourself or have reached a point where you are incapable of helping yourself.

It's not against the law to sell alcohol to alcoholics or drug offenders, no matter how famous they are.

And, once he started to drink it instore, what did you expect the shopkeeper to do? Wrestle the bottle from him? He's a big lad with a reputation for violence.

At least he hasn't wasted someone else's liver transplant, like that other footballer pi**head Best.

Yet!

No-one can help him but himself. It is his responsibility, and his alone, to stop drinking.

He has the right to drink himself to death and sadly in his case it is a matter of time.

But I hope against hope that the George Best scenario with him being given an liver transplant is not allowed again, that is pure waste in his case and an insult to the relatives who gave their loved ones organs to help people who need it and will continue to live in a way that will prolong their lives.

Gazza is past that I fear.
