Pete Doherty‘s history with drugs has been tumultuous — specifically with crack, cocaine and heroin. He’s been busted for cocaine posession numerous times and has gone to jail for it, as well. He’s even been found slumped over in bathrooms on flights after using. He’s tried getting clean before, but we also think his two-year, on-off relationship with Kate Moss was no good for him. No good for either of them, actually. It’s like they spent their time together in a haze of noxious fumes. The good news is that Pete is now attempting to get clean again, and has jetted off to Thailand to do so.
While this is umpteenth stint in rehab, we’re really hoping this works for him and that he will finally kick his addictions. His official statement reads, “Peter has left the building, well not quite, more the country, on his way to rehab in Thailand. He left Heathrow last night and will have arrived in Thailand this morning. We wish him well. He has plans to continue working on his new songs for the album which is eagerly awaited.” This is the second time he’s tried a center in Thailand, as he checked into a clinic there once before in 2003. But it does seem like Pete is really giving it a go this time, having said, back in April this year, “You have to reach an all-time low apparently. Before you truly surrender. I’ve got a long way to go.” We’re hoping for the best and wish him all the luck with this attempt.
