TORONTO - Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says after returning from rehab that a lot of people want to see him fail, but he's now "sober as a judge."

For the first time since Ford completed two months in rehab, he took questions about his substance abuse from journalists at large.

He previously said in a handful of interviews that he couldn't guarantee he won't relapse, only that he's taking his recovery one day at a time.

But today the mayor said he is assuring people: "Rob Ford is not going to fail. Rob Ford is not going to touch alcohol."

He says many people want to see him resume drinking and doing drugs, but Ford says "unfortunately that wish will not come true."

Ford says a sobriety coach who's been trailing him for about two weeks has moved on to helping other people.
