27 year old Lindsay Lohan opened up about her experience in rehab just a few days after leaving the center with Oprah.
Lohan was sentenced to the rehab center to help her deal with her addiction problems by court instead of being sent to jail for a series of crimes. In an orange dress and slick ponytail, Lohan showed the world a rather changed person since her rehab. She said being sent to jail although was her biggest wake-up call, when it had just happened, she did not see it that way.
“At that point, I strangely — you know, 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. And I think that that was subconsciously being put out there by me, just by my actions, or lack thereof. I think it was just to find some peace and just have no choice but to just sit and be.”
Lohan admitted at last that she indeed was an alcoholic. “[Alcohol] in the past was a gateway to other things for me. I tried cocaine with alcohol,” she confessed. “I really haven’t done it more than 10-15 times. Of course I said 3-4 [to Piers]; I was terrified of being judged. I’ve done it like 10-15 times. It allowed me to drink more. It was like a party thing. People would have it and I would do it. I snorted it. I’ve never injected anything other than getting B12 shots. It went hand in hand with drinking and partying.”
She went on to reveal that she is a very spiritual person. “I am a very spiritual person and I’ve become more spiritual as time has gone on,” she mused. “I’m really in touch with — whether it’s prayer or meditation — and you know there are so many powers greater than me in the world. I’ve been blessed and lucky enough to have been given a gift I can share with other people.”
“I’m different. I feel different. I’m in a different head space. I don’t want those things that I wanted before,” Lohan added.
