Lindsay Lohan sober for a week


Lindsay Lohan says she hasn’t had a drink in seven days and has actually been attending AA for a year now. She tells People:

“I just left an AA meeting. I’ve been going to AA, for a year by the way. Well it’s no one’s business. That’s why it’s anonymous! I haven’t had a drink in seven days. Or anything. I’m not even legal to, so why would I? I don’t drink when I go to clubs. I drink with my friends at home, but there’s no need to. I feel better not drinking. It’s more fun. I have Red Bull.

I didn’t feel bad before. I never felt bad. I just wanted to, like, find a balance. I was out too much. I was too caught up. I mean, I’m 20 years old. I was off from work, I was getting ready to start a film, and I was like going out just to get it out of my system. I was going out too much and I knew that, and I have more to live for than that. I was like, I don’t want to be written about at these clubs with these people. I work, I act, I have a living. That’s what I do every day. I work every single day.”

Asked if she had advice for those seeking recovery from substance abuse, Lohan said, “I think, don’t do it for someone else. Do it for you, ’cause if you do it for someone else you’re going to relapse. It’s not going to be a change. You have to really do something if you want to do it and … if it doesn’t work, you’re not meant to.”

So what we’ve seen from Lindsay so far is a years worth of AA? She might as well have been attending knitting class. In fact I’m pretty sure she was attending knitting class and just didn’t know it. She probably comes home every week with some newly knitted mittens and is like, “Fighting alcoholism is tough.”
