Disgraced funnyman Andy Dick is desperate to stay sober because he's ashamed of what he does when he drinks too much.
DICk, who has been in and out of rehab 10 times, was arrested last summer (08) after groping a 17-year-old girl following a binge in Murieta, California. He was charged with drug possession and sexual battery and placed on three years probation.
He also has to wear an alcohol bracelet, which warns the authorities about his drinking - and admits he would go straight to jail if the device started beeping.
DICk agree to film his fight to get and stay sober for a VH1 special in America, which debuted on Thursday night (05Feb09) - and he's determined to stay away from alcohol this time.
In a news exclusive with U.S. show Entertainment Tonight, he says, "What happens to me when I drink is... I turn into a moron.
"I wouldn't wake up and say, 'Today, when I drink, I'm going to be... in the back of a cop car, urinating all over myself, crying... You don't set out to do that.
"I've got to learn how to rein it in... I don't have an editing system on my brain or mouth."
And he realises he has wrecked his acting career with his drunken exploits: "It's (career) in the s**tter... I screwed it up, and not just once - over and over."
