Celebrities, just like normal people get addicted to drugs. Are they more vulnerable and susceptible than others? The answer differs for each individual, but the fact remains that celebrities have issues with drugs.
A poster child for the Hollywood drug and alcohol abuse problem is Lindsay Lohan. This gorgeous uber-talented actress who has starred in such films as “Freaky Friday” with Jamie Lee Curtis and “Herbie Rides Again” has been in and out of rehab, in and out of jail, more times than I can count!
Lindsay admits that she's often turned to drugs and alcohol to ease the pain of her personal problems.
She admits that she tried to mask my problems with alcohol, cocaine, and mind-altering substances. Now, she claims she’s in a place where she doesn’t need to use.
Lindsay claims to be clean and sober now and has learned from the mistakes she's made in her past. She also admits that she made some dreadful mistakes but learned from them – and that learning process is what saved her life.
Addiction Runs in the Family
Lohan blames her addiction to cocaine on her father, who also abused the drug when he was younger.
Here is how she describes her experience with cocaine.
"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 s**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.”
During the very candid interview, Lindsay also addressed her multiple stints in rehab. Speaking about the first of her three trips to rehab, Lindsay admitted she requested treatment after collapsing in her bathroom.
Wow! It's actually refreshing to hear Lindsay speak so candidly about her drug problem instead of denying the fact that she has one. Sadly, she just needs to surround herself with positive people and it'll make a world of a difference for her. But on a positive note, she's actually starting to look healthy again! Let’s just hope she can stay sober!!
