5. I listened to Rush's 'confession' on the radio
on the way home from work. Well done, I thought. A little humility will do you good, Rush. In spite of the testimonial, his voice showed little sign of humility. Instead, he sounded brazen and cocky as ever.

His speech ended with the promise that right after his announcement, he was shipping off to a 30-day treatment center for drug addiction.

Once Rush gets checked in, he will be cut off from his painkillers. He's going to have to hard-knuckle it for a few days. It sounds like his drugs are very addictive, so this might be an issue.

Also, once the drugs have worn off, he will be going to his first meeting. The first thing they will teach him is the First Step of AA which states that he is powerless over alcohol (narcotics) and it has made his life a shambles. He's going to have to face up to this one.

It requires honesty. It requires humility. Otherwise, he can't make it through the other 11 steps.
