Josh Brolin
is trying to live up to his promise ... he's reportedly checked into rehab after telling TMZ he was swearing off booze for good. 

Brolin checked into a rehab facility recently in Northern California ... a source told Us Weekly he realized he needed help and is committed to his sobriety.

TMZ broke the stories ... Josh got into into a drunken barfight in Santa Monica earlier this month that was caught on video ... and that same weekend, he tangled with a cab driver after rear-ending the guy.

A few days later, he swore to us he was changing his ways ... saying he'd never touch a drop of alcohol again.

Not to be too cynical, but hasn't he said this before?

We all know what that means when the celebrity world checks themselves into REHAB...
....the Celebrity Courts up to its same old antics--cutting deals. (at a price)

I was in rehab with him in 1996. He's been down this road before but different drug of choice at the time. Wish him the best.

Talented guy. Spoiled silver spoon kid who obviously never learned proper self restraint. Get help or go away. Repeated 2nd chances are not an option.

a (w.A.m) checking in rehab just to push the reset button doesn't count, "hey guys, see I'm going to rehab" translation: "i'm still going to be STUPID, a drunk, and an a hole, just next time I'm going to be more careful, at least for my career's sake"
and just like that, all is forgiven in the public pick and choose double standard zombie world…
lets move on to his 10th chance….some only get one, if any…

Even if he has done it before who knows this time it might work. I had to take my driving test 3 times. OK not the same thing but I mean that sometimes it takes more than once to get things right. At least he is not trying to do it alone which is what he said earlier. It's too hard to do it without the proper support.

If you don't kick it this time at least get it under control.

True Grit, No Country for Old Men - like this guy. Hope he gets the real help he needs, but I hold a lot of doubt for some of these "treatment centers"

It seems to be a fad, when you are a undisciplined selfish degenerated celeb, you are not responsible for what you are doing, because you are just diseased and so, you poor patient, need just help.
-
Nobody of these celeb idiots is just a stupid azzhole who likes to let himself go whenever he wants, of course not, these poor celebs are just diseased.
-
There will be probably celeb rehabs for every s.hit you could imagine.

Sometimes you have to have reality smack you in the face before you realize what an a$$hole you are. Hope it works out.
