Watching the intervention show is tough in his case especially. He has such smug arrogance compared to almost any other addict. Even when he relapsed.
He is his own obstacle to sobriety. In intervention, his Dad said Chad is just like him and that is why they clash. I didn't see the smugness in his dad, I saw the angst of watching one's child intentionally leap off a cliff into an abyss while flipping off everyone who cares about them. Soooo much anger.
He needs to do a lot of work on himself. Cycling (racing in europe) was not helping. It was said on the last chad gerlach thread. The demands of the sport make no allowances for his needs.
Oldman said:When he was a younger racer the was confident and appropriately cocky but a good rider. He treated other riders with respect and had a descent sense of humor, particularly off the bike. I didn't know him personally but teammates had longer term experience with him. We all hope he can get life on track.
