Lindsay Lohan Admits She Failed A Drug Test And Other Yom Kippur Miracles

lindsay-lohan-machete_500.jpgPerhaps jail time and rehab really did change Lindsay Lohan. After coming up positive for drug use in her court-mandated drug test, I think we were all girded for the usual litany of excuses -- not my pants, not my drugs, I drink a lot of kombucha, I accuse my parents, and so on. But, mirable dictu, Lindsay's taken full responsibility. And that's not all!

In a flurry of penitent tweets, Lindsay not only fully copped to blowing her test but very maturely explained that her substance abuse recovery is a long road to walk and asks for her friends and fans understanding and forgiveness. And she even admits that she is ready to face the consequences of her actions, which in her case, is a 30 day stint in jail.

Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result.

Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn't go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward every day. I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future.

This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I'm prepared to face the consequences.

I am so thankful for the support of my fans, loved ones and immediate family, who understand that i am trying hard, but also that I am a work in progress, just as anyone else. I am keeping my faith, and I am hopeful....Thank you all!!!

Whether this new, mature, responsible Lindsay Lohan is here to stay or whether she'll revert to the tooted-up harpy who blamed a black guy for her crimes, only time will tell. But for now, keep on keepin' on Lindsay!

    Wasn't Lindsay determined not to suffer from addiction at UCLA Medical last month? Something that both she and Dina seemed to be all to happy to announce?

  • Gomez says:

    What the heck do medical doctors know about addiction? If they did, they would probably realize that most people come to see a doctor in the hopes of getting some pain pill. Or, maybe they do know?

  • Milo says:

    Has anyone considered the possibility, that LL should have had a medication switch, rather than abruptly weaned of them, and ordered to four times a wek intenve psychotherapy? Does that not seem ideoliogically tainted? Could LL be a victim of law enforcement co-opting a medical problem, which it does constantly? Ethical people know to withhold judgment, until all the evidence is in. It seems that we have not progressed at all since hanging the Salem witches, and lynching people because of the color of their skin.

  • Geri says:

    This is the same type of sympathetic spin image makers tell high profile public figures to do. Admit, and make people feel sorry for your struggle then everyone will go easy on you. Just imagine those same words coming from a man who molest children. He will say it is a sickness and he is struggling and will face his punishment.
    Drug use and alcoholism is not a disease, it is an excuse to justify the weakness and irresponsible behavior of people who made a choice to put a substance in their bodies that alter their thinking, resoning, and behavior. Studies and psychologist can make up all the excuses they want for these people but just as you tell rapist and molesters, "it's about self control and doing the right thing"

  • Lorri says:

    I'm sorry, but the proper spelling, lack of grammatical errors and proper punctuation shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that Lindsay did not write these tweets.

  • Sally Sasser says:

    I know. It reads just like a "straight from the publicist's printer" 'admission'.
    When we all predicted that she would violate probation within a month, it wasn't because we wanted her to, it was because we could all see that she still didn't 'get it'.

  • Tooba says:

    drug and substance abuse is not a disease. Its irresponsible behaviour.
    If its a disease than all the murderers, rapist and bank robbers have the excuse too. They can say---Oh sorry I committed the horrible crime but you know what its a disease and I need to supported a luxury life in a rehab on tax payer dollers.

    Adam Lambert, Enjoys being " TEABAGGED ", Golden showers and eating and sucking young boys' SCROTUMS, BALLS and ASSHOLES!!! And you people are wasting time talking about a young spoiled bitch with a drug and alcohol problem? You all belong in rehab you LOSERS!!!

  • mike says:

    As an alcoholic in recovery for years, one thing I noticed right away, is the lack of connection to drugs in the statement. She DIDN'T say she was sorry that she just used drugs and that is an admission of being what you are. She just obliquely commented that somehow the drug test failed. Well, just how do you fail one? She's in semi-denial.

  • sometimes drinking rehab will only make your loved ones suffer more
