Dennis Rodman Reveals Battle Against Alcoholism

October 27, 2010 (3:52 am) GMT
The basketball star admits that it is very difficult and not something which can be wiped out in a matter of 30 days in rehab.

Former basketball star has spoken out about his ongoing battle with alcoholism, admitting he's struggling to stay sober after a lifetime of hard partying. The sportsman-turned-reality-TV-star battled his addiction in front of millions this year as part of U.S. TV shows "" and "Sober House" - but numerous reports have suggested he's continued to drink.

Rodman's representative spoke out in defense of the recovering alcoholic back in May, insisting the star's struggle to stay sober has been "a gradual process" as rumors swirled he'd relapsed. Now the athlete is speaking out about his daily battle to quit drinking, and reveals he's not ready to give up the bottle just yet.

He says, "It's definitely difficult to party after such a long time and really give it (drinking) up like that (snaps fingers)... You just can't go into a program and get sober after 30 days."
