Lilo Recovered from Alcohol & Coke Addiction

Lindsay Lohan interviewed with the legendary ebony goddess Oprah Winfrey. Highlights from Lindsay’s interview with Oprah. Oprah asked, “What’s different about this time?” L: “I don’t think in the past, I’ve ever fully surrendered to the fact that I just need to shut up and listen. In this case, I wasn’t fighting at all. I just let go and was able to just be like ‘you probably do know what’s best because my idea of doing what’s best has not worked for me in the past.’ I came into it just really willing, really craving more spirituality, really open and ready to get really honest.” O: “Would you say you were in denial before?” L: “A little bit. Definitely in the beginning. Absolutely. And the fear of not being able to ‘well, that means I can’t go out and have a drink with my friends ever again?!’ And it’s not about that. All I can do is live in each moment.

O: “What is it you are addicted to?” L: “Alcohol. That in the past was a gateway to other things for me. I tried coke with alcohol. I’d never done those things without it.” O: “Then I read that you said you really hadn’t done coke more than 3-4 times.” L: “I really haven’t done it more than 10-15 times. Of course I said 3 or 4, I was terrified of being judged. I’ve done it 10-15 times.” O: “Are you now ready, at this time in your life, to heal whatever it is that’s kept you from being who you need to be.” L: “That’s what I’ve been doing for the past few months. And it’s a process and I continue to do it everyday. A lot of stuff went on when I was young, with my family. I grew up in a very chaotic home. There were moments of everything just being wonderful and perfect and then things being so uncontrollable and chaotic that it’s something that people go through and unfortunately I waited too long to face it. God save Cady Heron!
