Lindsay Lohan Opens Up To Oprah About Her Alcohol Addiction and Cocaine Abuse


Following a three month court ordered stint in rehab Lindsay Lohan recently opened up to talk show legend Oprah about her struggles with addiction. Speaking about how she now feels ‘whole again’ Lindsay candidly opened up admitting that she has struggled with drinking, cocaine use and prescription medications.

The interview, which was filmed shortly after Lindsay left the  Cliffside Malibu Treatment Center shows the star looking healthy and contented for the first time in years. Here’s what we learnt….

Lindsay has previously lied about the extent of her cocaine abuse…

Lindsay previously claimed in an interview that she had only tried cocaine four or five times, however, in her interview with Oprah she bravely conceded that this was not the truth, ‘I tried cocaine with alcohol. I really haven't done it more than 10 to 15 times.’ The actress went on to say, ‘I never felt good the next day. It allowed me to drink more. I think that's why I did. And it was a party thing.  People would have it and I would do it.'

Lindsay is off the prescription drugs…

Having admitted to being addicted to Adderall in the past Lindsay now says she is off the drug, ‘I don't need it [now],' she said. 'I'm on vitamins now. take Nexium, because I have acid reflux.'

Lindsay went to jail in a bid to get help…

In 2010 Lindsay was sentenced to 90 days in jail (in the end she served just 14 due to over crowding), she said, ‘Part of my decision was, at that point… strangely, being in my addiction and everything, and having all the chaos around me that I was so comfortable with, I somewhere inside knew, and kind of wanted, to go to jail.’ She added, ‘I think that was subconsciously being put out there just by my actions. I think it was just to find some peace and have no choice but to just sit and be.’

Lindsay has found peace following her rehab stay…

Lindsay said, ‘I came into it just really willing, and really craving more spirituality, and more open, ready to get really honest.’ She went on to admit that she still knows she has work to do, ‘All I can do is live in each moment and take every moment as it comes, and live - as cliché as it might sound - one day at a time.'
