Lindsay Lohan: 'Drugs and alcohol nearly killed me'

23 February 2010 [10:51] - TODAY.AZ
Lindsay Lohan, Hollywood’s reformed wild child, has spoken out about her drug and alcohol addiction, admitting she nearly killed herself through extensive binges with the fame-linked substances.
Speaking to The Sun’s Emma Cox, Lindsay declared it was when her father spoke out against her, she hit ‘rock bottom’.

‘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,’ she confessed to The Sun.

The 23-year-old beauty revealed that she has learnt from her mistakes and is a better person for it.

Her childhood dream was to be a Hollywood actress. At just 12-years-old she starred in the remake of The Parent Trap which showcased her sensational acting talents.

Her dream continued as she won acting roles in major Hollywood films.

However when her father Michael Lohan aired her dirty laundry in public in 2007, the child actress’ future hit a downward slope.

She has been to rehab three times and found herself behind bars when she was caught in the possession of cocaine.

The bisexual actress spoke of her sheer ‘terror’ after she collapsed on her bathroom door having taking too many sleeping pills.

This was the turning point - she realised she needed help.

Miss Lohan holds part of her wild antics’ blame on the Hollywood circle she hangs out in.

Now she is finally on the straight-and-narrow, she confesses to seeing a therapist fortnightly and alcohol education lessons every week.

Looking to the future, she ensures drugs will not be part of her daily routine anymore as her naturally bubbly personality can stand in as a substitute for needing a lift from drugs.

The talented star can even now be labelled as a role model for the youth around the world - something that never seemed likely before.

This is one Hollywood story that really does have a happy ending.
