Lindsay Speaks: "I Am Addicted To Alcohol And Drugs"

Lindsay Speaks: "I Am Addicted To Alcohol And Drugs"

Lindsay Lohan, who earlier today was charged with 7 misdemeanor counts and no felonies (which most of you agree is a little light), will serve one day in jail. According to TMZ, she was credited for time spent when she was arrested and will serve 10 days of community service in lieu of two more days in jail. On top of that she will be on probation for 36 months and attend 18 months of alcohol eduction. By January 18, Lindsay must prove she has completed rehab. Lindsay, who has remained quiet during all of this and currently remains at rehab in Utah released the following statement:

It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs.

Recently, I relapsed and did things for which I am ashamed. I broke the law, and today I took responsibility by pleading guilty to the charges in my case. No matter what I said when I was under the influence on the day I was arrested, I am not blaming anyone else for my conduct other than myself. I thank God I did not injure others. I easily could have.

I very much want to be healthy and gain control of my life and career and have asked for medical help in doing so. I am taking these steps to improve my life. Luckily, I am not alone in my daily struggle and I know that people like me have succeeded. Maybe with time it will become easier. I hope so.

Go Lindsay! I wish you strength to take on your many responsibilities to yourself, the people who love you, and society in itself. Good luck. :) While I don't believe that she quite wrote the statement herself -- I'm still wishing her the best. She is a seriously sick and damaged person who needs to learn to get over herself. And I mean that with utmost affection. Paris Hilton is devil spawn, seriously. There are no circumstances that at least give me some sympathy for her plight. Nicky is a decent, put-together and respectable Hilton daughter. Paris... is not. And she still has NOT admitted to doing drugs.

We don't need her to tell us something that we already know. What we need to hear is that she's going to Prison. That's the news that will make us all happy. They need to learn a lesson, and pampering at a rehab for a lessor or NO sentence to your charge is NOT acceptable to us.

Whoever wrote this statement for her, it sounds reasonable.

This is the first time she has really taken responsibility. I mean, at least she's admitting it. I think that she does want to change. I mean, it is an addiction after all. It doesn't change overnight. I think people are giving up on her too soon. Lots of people have made comebacks from this type of thing. She still is very young. I wouldn't write her off just yet...

lindsay ....lindsay.... i really like her but her acts drives me crazy i really hope for her to heal and never do anything wrong and i think the reason that she became like this is her famliy and everytime she says that she is gonna be better she improves the opposite !!!

I do admit, I feel sorry for her in some respects. Anyone with parents who push their children into the limelight from such a young age will no doubtedly suffer some effects. Others have been able to handle it a little better, and Lindsay has made some execptionally stupid decisions, but it is not surprising that a young Hollywood starlet would go to drugs. It's a dirty business, and there is ample opportunity to do so. That being said, Lindsay should go to a rehab clinic for Narcissism next.

Stating the obvious. I wonder who she paid to write that up for her and wonder who made her say it. She would still deny deny deny....

huh. Well good for her for publicly admitting her addictions. BUT that is only the 1st step. ANYONE who any any experience with recovery knows that actions are the ONLY things that count. I'm not rooting for her to fail, but I'm not gonna hold my breath till she succeeds either.

She really should have had a longer jail sentence. I dont know what this judge was thinking. Lindsey needs to learn a lesson, and I feel if she was in jail she wouldnt drink and drive again. It would be for her own good.

Lindsay's reputation and career are clearly shot to hell. I think she got off because she's her family's breadwinner. They have evidently done everything in their power to protect their investment in Lindsay. Let's just hope she does not overdose or kill someone in the future. Hey Lindsay needs to GET BETTER + GET LOST I am so sick of her.
