Lindsay Tweets: 'I'm Prepared to Face Consequences'

9/18/2010 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan apparently has had a change of heart.  After telling friends TMZ's story was dead wrong -- that she tested positive for cocaine and flunked a drug test -- she then took to her Twitter page late Friday night and fessed up.

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!!! 

As we told you yesterday, Lindsay actually failed two drug tests -- the second was not for cocaine. 

Nonetheless, she's now acknowledging a problem.  For her sake, we hope these are her words and not those of the people who have so adeptly gotten her out of numerous jams.

I hope her Twitter fans {or "Twits" as any fan of this absolute trainwreck should be called} aren't stupid enough to buy in to her hollow, bull**** excuses. Someone obviously paid off the doctors at UCLA to perjure themselves by saying she has no problems. The smartest person through this whole fiasco was the Judge who originally sentenced her...she saw through her pathetic excuse of an apology, etc.
Lindsey, you no longer deserve "Good luck". Do what you do much better than act...screw up some more. Keep trying to flush a career you should be thankful for down the toilet. You are a pathelogical liar and a bad influence to society as a whole; not to mention a danger to anyone on the street when your non-sober ass is behind the wheel.

Mike@101...good post, very coherent. Seriously, if any of Lindsey's people read these posts please have Lindsay look into aversion therapy...google "sober in seattle." They offer an escape from the overwhelming cravings for drugs and alcohol so the mind can clear and the real work of recovery can begin. Best wishes to you, Lindsay. BTW...SSH is the oldest hospital in the United States devoted solely to the treatment of addiction. It is the only hospital in the world that offers aversion therapy. They saved my life and they can save yours too.

At least she is admitting to her mistake and isn't denying that she did relapse.
I hope if she gets jail it is only 30 days and that is less than a week.

The reason UCLA wouldn't have needed long to treat her is that unlike opiates, benzo type drugs, and alcohol the withdrawal symptoms are mostly psychological rather than terrible or life threatening. People can and do can fool psychiatrists on things like addiction because often they're fooling themselves. Particularly if their use is still relatively light. Easier to fool: You can't lie about not using if you've fooled yourself you're not using.

Getting clean/medical withdrawal is only half the battle. For some substances the failure rate of even the best addiction clinics is often above 50%. Or one in two. People have to really want to change and some, because of underlying, probably untreated psychological issues, may find it even more difficult. These are facts. Clinics that *only* accept people who have really, really committed to change have, obviously, higher success rates.

Often people don't realise they're addicts until they're in a situation where they can't get a fix of whatever it is they didn't realise they're addicted to. Pure self delusion, of course, but it's not uncommon for people to delude themselves about loads of stuff. It's just this denial can have tragic ends.

A sign of an addiction is someone who is prepared to do things that will adversely effect them in order to maintain a particular thing. Hopefully this will be the wake up call to those surrounding her to be more skeptical and thus be of more help to her. Maybe, even, they were covering it up, hoping to deal with it privately. Very sad.

Best of luck Lindsay Lohan.

Substance abuse is not a disease and saying so is a poor excuse for not taking responsibility. Blame and no responsibility is an epidemic in America and Hollywood leads the pack.

#85 HarryPalms - It's OK for you to call Jesus a fairytale and #83 Ernie doesn't have the right to express his own opinion about Jesus? These posts are full of vitreol and hatefulness and you pick on the one person here who offers a positive message of hope.

Anyone else find it funny that all of a sudden her mom is silent??

Mama Lohan has always defended her loser daughter SWEARING that she is not an addict...the judge was unfair...Lindsay is being picked on...fighting with Matt Lauer ...boo hoo...etc..

How hard is Dina Lohan working to help her daughter/meal ticket????

Dear "fair"

Are you sure you aren't Courtney Love? I had no idea what you were typing! I have some thoughts here... maybe you did not get an education (most educated people can type sentences that are logical and coherent), or you are f-ed up on something. I don't know or care, i just think it is ignorant to try and pull out the little ol' race card just because. I SAW TI get arrested at Walgreens that day! He deserved it. Not po ol me. He was guilty, the same as LL and the same as PH. Should your race get you out of having to own up to the law? Hell no. At some point, we all have to be GROWN UPS that have to deal with consequenses. Put that in your crack pipe and smoke it. Oh yeah, it's called a GED, get one.

Serve's TMZ, right? UCLA exam of Li-Lo, report's that? She did'nt have ADD or addiction'(s) of anykind...! Press, radio & film (internet) Anonymity?! Tradition's from Bill W. & Dr. Bob (AA) archive's history show's work with early (EA) predessor NarA. Split into EA in the early 70's...! No, Label's or Degree's of diffulties "feeling's or emotion's" as the 'further' process of "Living' with Personality-Disorder's or THE general-Public (UCLA).
Glen Peck & JVM of CNN. Each ARE 'one' of Them?! after an-Awakening" 12th. *** Li-Lo a-working Woman (UCLA) after Cleb's court's influanced by a sense of Consertive-ism: further, Papa Lohan, dooting-Dad: following Daddy- Spear's, too. Told to sray-out, too (of LA) life.... Keep-it, Up...??? Satire (humor-ism)... just on of the 80% of (non-faith) Personality (Disorder's) TMZ.

Wow fair, you're the most racist person of all.

I hope Lindsay gets the true help she needs. Jail will do no good, rehab is what she truly needs.

Goodluck    

I agree this was written by her pr person. It is the only sane comment and makes the best of a bad situation.

However, it is a brain/biologigical disease - 'a physical allergy combined with a mental obsession' and I wish you luck.
More meetings and no clubbing.

I wish some would leave the 'faith based' (in reality, shame based) stuff alone. Let her find her own spirituality and path to God and a Higher Power. Her father needs to give that up. Religion CAN be an addiction as well. Not directed to true Christians whom I admire, but there is a saying, "Jesus save me from your followers!"
