Lindsay's Dad -- She Shouldn't Quit Cold Turkey

5/25/2010 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan's father believes that forcing Lindsay to cut herself off from drugs and alcohol ASAP is a bad thing -- and he's getting support from an expert.

Michael Lohan tells TMZ he thinks Lindsay has a problem with prescription pills, but he "doesn't think it's a good idea for her to detox on her own." He feels Lindsay would be best served by "being under a doctor's care."

And according to addiction recovery specialist Dr. Marc Kern -- Michael's logic ain't too far off.

Kern tells us if -- and only if -- Lindsay has a drug problem, "There probably should have been an assessment of her reliance and dependency of substances before they took her off of everything. That would have been a safer method."

Of course, this all assumes that Lindsay actually has a drug problem.

What's with him and only mentioning prescription pills? Everyone else focuses on her "problem with coke," is there some guilt on Michael's part for exposing Lindsay to cocaine at a young age?

Stop humoring this idiot, it's the same **** every single time. TMZ obviously has a business relationship with Lohan or else they wouldn't get all of these "exclusives." He needs to shut the **** up and Lindsay needs to REALLY start getting her life back in order, it's time, enough is ****ing enough, good Lord.

From a chemical dependence perspective, she better get medical monitoring while dextoxing...

The judge didn't take her off of any drugs. LL said she wasn't taking any and didn't have a problem so the judge ordered testing to make sure she doesn't use in the future. It's not the judge's fault if LL lied in court. So sad, too bad! Can't wait to see what she looks like in the next few weeks!

If she is having trouble with coming off the drugs and the booze there's this thing called "detox" that us mere mortals would be inclined to take ourselves. One doesn't need a court order to do that. She's a big girl ML, if she is suffering from withdrawal she knows where the hospital is located who can help her with her withdrawal symptoms. Time to leave this puppy alone ! Its about time she felt some pain, some remorse, and withdrawal from her fantasy world of drugs !

#78----Your a dope for even suggesting Near Beer as a way of withdrawing from booze. Near Beer "DOES" contain alcohol !

I can't believe I'm going to write this, but here it goes. Michael Lohan may be alot of things in the eyes of public opinion BUT he is a recovering alcoholic/addict and knows recovery. I give him that for sure. He's not in my opinion trying to pull any stunts here by talking publicly, he is a concerned father and he should be.

But one thing Michael Lohan who himself has gone through the struggles of addiction and hitting bottom, leading him to recovery it doesn't help if it's a forced upon a person which is what he trying to do.

Michael Lohan if you are truly in recovery and are working your steps you know that you have your higher power that keeps you on the straight and narrow. The most important thing that may not dawn on you is that Lindsay too has her own higher power, and you Michael Lohan must have faith that her higher power is working in her life, and you have no control.

True recovery only comes from despair, pain, and hitting a bottom that opens your eyes. I believe Lindsay is well on her way to recovery, even though most of you don't. She is smack in the middle of her bottom.

Her pain, her despair, her bottom will only come when it's time for her to realize this is as low as she wants to go. She already knows that, she's been in recovery before. Maybe some jail time is the bottom she needs to hit.

There are only three possible outcomes for Lindsay. JAILS, INSTITUTIONS, and DEATH ! She's done the institutions, so she's only got two outcomes left, let's hope it's ONLY jail for her.
