The party hasn’t ended for Charlie Sheen. The actor, whose new show “Anger Management” debuts on FX this Thursday, revealed on “Good Morning America” today that although he has quit using drugs, he’s certainly not sober. When ABC anchor Elizabeth Vargas asked Sheen if he still drinks alcohol, he shot back, “Who doesn’t?” Vargas questioned if boozing was wise considering his past addictions, and he responded, “I don't believe in rehab anymore, it's not for me. It’s not for everyone. It’s not a one-size-fits-all, and it didn’t fit for me. We live in a country where it's always Miller Time. It's always happy hour somewhere in the world!"

Considering the admission, Sheen, 46, was pretty coherent during the candid interview – unlike his fidgety “Today” show sitdown in March – except for an oddly-timed, albeit thoughtful “shout out” to “GMA” co-host Robin Roberts, who recently revealed she’s battling a rare blood disease. The star also expressed his regrets about his meltdown and how he handled being fired from “Two and a Half Men” – namely calling the show’s creator Chuck Lorre a “Nazi” and a “turd.” "I was vocal about people I shouldn't have been so vocal about," said Sheen. "I'm grateful we're able to sit here and talk about it. It is odd to look at the clips and some of the stuff and say, 'That was me.'"

The new Charlie Sheen is also thankful to not have “died young” so he can still be here for his five children (in addition to a grown daughter Cassandra, he has two young daughters with Denise Richards and twin sons with Brooke Mueller). He also told Vargas that once “Anger Management” concludes, he will take “take a break for a while and be a full-time dad and be a father to these boys and these girls … because at the end of the day that's the job that matters the most – the job of father."
