Lindsay Opens Up About Her Drinking and Drug Use — Too Personal or Important to Share?

Lindsay Lohan continued the late night fun in London over the weekend, partying with Jade Jagger and posing for photos with a NYPD police car on Friday night and ending Saturday evening with another trip to Bungalow 8. She was back in the US by Sunday, when she hosted a bash celebrating her 6126 line in Atlantic City with her mother Dina. In England, LL apparently gave an interview all about her battles with drinking and drugs. She said:

  • On hitting rock bottom: "When my father was going public, that's when I hit rock bottom. I abused substances too much and it wasn't the answer to my problems. People need to know that. I tried to mask my problems with alcohol, cocaine and mind-altering substances. Now I'm in a place where I don't need to use anything and I can feel emotions because I choose to."
  • On knowing she needed rehab: "I went to rehab three times. The first time I checked myself in because I had taken Ambien. It's a sleeping aid but it makes you hallucinate. I'd run a bath and fallen asleep on the floor and the bath had overflowed. When I woke up I was so scared, I called my therapist and said, 'Can I just go somewhere for a month? I'm around bad people and I need to take care of myself'. I was terrified, so I put myself in."
  • On doing cocaine: "I was only aware of cocaine because of my dad. I was terrified of it. But I tried it because I was stubborn, stupid, and wanted to see what it was like. It's not something I ever want to do again. It made me feel like sh*t. It became uninteresting to me. I'm hyper anyway and I have that kind of personality so I don't need something like that."
  • On drinking now: "I'm allowed to drink now but I know my limits. There are certain situations where I have obligations. There's no reason to (drink) because I don't want to feel like sh*t in the morning. The thing is, at the times I was going out a lot and being seen everywhere, I would have been in college."

It's quite a lot for LL to share after her much-publicized problems over the last few years. So, tell us what you think about her opening up about her drinking and drug use — too personal or important to share?
