Zac Efron

He Never Stopped Drinking

Zac Efron
-- who was partying in a bar in Ibiza with Michelle Rodriguez -- is not only back on the bottle ... we're told he was never off it.

Zac has had big issues with substance abuse ... going to rehab twice last year for cocaine addiction. We're told he's also a big drinker.

People involved in Zac's life tell us ... his biggest problem is that he always believes he has the ability to stop.  As one source says, "He'll stop cold for 3 or 4 days when he has to work and then he's back."

It's no secret Zac loves to party.  We're told he's "climbing the walls" just before his various projects end ... waiting for the moment he doesn't have to show up for work in the morning so he can party hard.

Here's the good and the bad.

The good -- Zac's younger brother Dylan is a big influence on him.  We're told Dylan has counseled him about the importance of sobriety and Zac doesn't blow him off.

The bad -- Zac  is 26 but he's acting like an 18-year-old.  The way it was put to us ... "When Zac was 18 and 19, when most kids go crazy, he was kept on a short leash [also known as Vanessa Hudgens]. When they broke up he went off the rails."

Exactly what we all have been thinking all along..his face is lookin bloated anyway. As for getting in shape it's probably roids and cocaine. The guy is trash and will become Lohan 2.0 if doesn't check himself.

Maybe just leave him alone. He is on vacation having fun. I hate when tmz tries to ruin people's reputation for minor stuff. So juvenile

He naively thinks he can be selectively sober. He needs to make a full commitment to AA.

I dont dee why its a big deal he is drinking his problem is with cocaine! Veen to ibiza for past 2 years, and if all he is doing is drinking then he can be commended! They sell ket and coke spoons on the beach as necklaces! It is one big overpriced drug fest! Dont do them myself but you will it would be hard to find a group of people not on them! Its ibiza!

TMZ wouldn't you be upset if he and all other stars were sober? What would you report on? Don't lie Harvey, you and your chocolate bunny Charles live for this. PS I haven't seen the show for awhile how is the angry black chick, the dumb blonde that nobody likes, the fat gay guy with the polo shirts (not Harvey) and the dumb white surfer dude doing?

I can't imagine living every day of my life trying to hide my true sexuality from the public. I'd probably do drugs and drink too. Just come out already, bro.
