Lindsay: "I Am Addicted to Alcohol and Drugs"

8/23/2007 6:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan issued the following statement to TMZ:

"It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs.

Recently, I relapsed and did things for which I am ashamed. I broke the law, and today I took responsibility by pleading guilty to the charges in my case. No matter what I said when I was under the influence on the day I was arrested, I am not blaming anyone else for my conduct other than myself. I thank God I did not injure others. I easily could have.

I very much want to be healthy and gain control of my life and career and have asked for medical help in doing so. I am taking these steps to improve my life. Luckily, I am not alone in my daily struggle and I know that people like me have succeeded. Maybe with time it will become easier. I hope so."

Give the girl a break. Look at her parents for crying out loud. She's still young and can make a change, don't deny her a chance. I think her parents coupled with the whole Hollywood thing gave her a sense of "entitlement" that unfortunately for her, didn't extend into "real life".
When she's clean, she is still a beautiful girl. When she's using she's not. If she was older, I would think we could let her fade into black, but she's still young with potential. Hopefully she will learn how to handle herself better in public. BTW I'M NOT A FAN OF HERS. I have no idea what she's done workwise besides DUI and TMZ stuff. And I'm gay. She's got a good look about her that gets better when she's clean. Thats all.

This is the same author of the Robert Altman letter? I think not- next time I suggest the writer include a LOT of spelling mistakes and rambling nonsense and it'll be much more believable.

Dear L.A. County District Attorney,

I wanted to write this letter to thank you for all you’ve done to alleviate the stress in my life. I used to worry about things like getting in trouble for things like speeding but I now realize that living in Los Angeles, I’m actually incredibly lucky because I now know that I’ll never get punished for it again. This of course stems from the recent ‘situations’ involving those people involved with crimes that far outweigh the seriousness of my crimes. Here’s how I figure it works in terms of crimes committed that result in little to no jail time (from approz(except in the case of when I kill someone in which I guess I’ll have to have my L.A. Times stopped being delivered to my house for 3 months (no biggie of course) :

Reckless driving

Driving recklessly while intoxicated

Driving recklessly while under the influence of a controlled substance

Driving recklessly while intoxicated and under the legal drinking age

Driving recklessly while intoxicated and under the legal drinking age and in possession of a controlled substance

Driving recklessly while intoxicated and under the legal drinking age and in possession of a controlled substance and getting into an accident

Driving recklessly while intoxicated and under the legal drinking age and in possession of a controlled substance and getting into an accident and fleeing the scene

Driving recklessly while intoxicated and in possession of a controlled substance for the second time in less than 2 months AFTER completing the second rehabilitation program

Driving recklessly while under the influence of a controlled substance and ending up facing the wrong way on the freeway when already on probation for a previous DUI

Driving recklessly while intoxicated and getting into an accident where a person dies


These are just some of what I can now know I can ‘get away with’ and I want to thank you because like an idiot, I assumed consequences were real things but clearly they are not. Thanks much!

On the local news here, a black woman from the DA's office said that Lindsay received no special treatment.

Seems to me that she, unlike Paris, admitted that she did do the drugs and drinking.

Paris is still toking and saying she doesn't
