Jersey Shore - Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino's Hard Days Since Leaving Rehab

Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino admits there's been ''a lot of rainy days'' since leaving rehab.

The 'Jersey Shore' star recently completed a two-week stint in Utah's Cirque Lodge - where he received treatment for his addiction to prescription drugs and alcohol-related issues - and while he is getting his life back on track, he admits it's very difficult at times.

He said: ''Ever since I've been out, I'm not gonna lie ... it's not easy. But at the same time, where I'm at right now, I'm at a good place. But it took a little bit to get there. In the beginning? A lot of rainy days, so to speak. A lot of rainy days.''

Mike, 29, says the first few days of detox were very hard because he never thought he'd get better.

He told MTV: ''Your first day is detox. It's not a pleasurable experience at all. I'd wake up and just be extremely disappointed with myself. Like, 'I can't believe I got here. How did I get here?'

''I'm not gonna lie, it feels like you're not gonna recover. It feels like an impossible deed ... [but] day-by-day it gets better.''

In March, Mike confessed he was addicted to prescription pills and was getting help.

In a post on his Facebook page, the reality TV star said: ''I wanted to set the record straight. I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion.

''I have spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule. I appreciate my fans support and love you guys.''

A representative for The Situation - who recently underwent a promotional tour of Australia - had initially claimed the reality TV star wasn't being treated for drug abuse.
