So much this.
I don't care what happened or what your excuse is, I would like someone to step up and say, "I did (or didn't) intentionally take substance x, which is banned, but it was in my system. I'm sorry"
It's like people who try to make excuses when they get caught speeding. You were caught, you're getting a ticket, now just accept it and move on.
