    Pete Doherty's drug problems are not behind him and the musician is headed to rehab. He told NME that "(I am) using heroin substitutes, Subutex. For example, between last Thursday and Sunday I didn’t use any gear at all. And for me, it’s (about) reaching the point where I’m not boasting about being clean for four days… And it was a case of on the Monday going back to London (from Paris, France) and being sick on the Eurostar and scoring and really, I didn’t really need to. It’s kind of pointless."

    The rocker also said, "You have to reach an all-time low, apparently. Before you truly surrender… I’ve got a long way to go."

    The reporter also received a text message from Doherty, which read: "It's Peter Doherty. Thought you might be interested to know that I'm booked to go to rehab at the end of April."

    What do you think of Pete Doherty's continued problems with drugs?
