Bobby Brown's DUI arrest might be the best thing that ever happened to him -- 'cause friends are telling TMZ the singer has finally snapped out of denial and realized he has a drinking problem.

Sources close to Brown tell us ... even though Bobby has been through rehab before, he didn't take it very seriously in the past  ... because he didn't truly believe he was an alcohol abuser.

But now, we're told Bobby is extremely embarrassed by his newest arrest ... and understands that his drinking has become a big, big problem in his life.

One source tells us... Bobby is strongly considering checking back into rehab ... but so far, no decision has been made. We're told his friends support the idea ... but they don't want to push him too hard because they know treatment will only be effective if Bobby makes the decision by himself.

I think we've heard this song and dance before. He probably considered it during a black out.

Yeah,Yeah, we've heard this all before. There really is no hope for this man. He's a f*cking looser...he'll never learn. Please judge put this man in jail and throw out the key. He'll never recover because he won't stay in rehab. He's really setting a great example for his kids. Look at Bobbi Kristina... following her father's foot steps. I actually feel sorry for that young lady. She still greiving the loss of her mother. I pray for her. As for Bobby Brown? He can go to hell!!

Multiple DUI's, he's a well-known drug addict and his wife died of an overdose, now his teen daughter is drinking and he's "considering rehab"? It's a bold-faced lie, if you want to get clean you don't "consider" anything, you either do it or you don't, and he hasn't. Judge will give him few choices due to his history and high-profile addiction. Be a father and get clean or just keep being a loser and stay clear of your daughter, right now he's just another tool who's death we'll mourn for about 4 seconds. Hope he proves me wrong, but I doubt it.
