Lindsay Lohan Chooses Rehab

9/26/2010 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Lindsay Lohan is about to re-enter rehab ... and it's her decision.

0925_lindsay_Lohan_TMZ_EX3
Sources with direct and specific knowledge of the situation tell TMZ Lindsay will enter a live-in facility outside of Los Angeles within days. Lindsay is now agonizingly aware she has an addiction problem and also acknowledges the reality -- addicts often backslide before they get better.

We're told Lindsay is telling people she doesn't want this type of life anymore. She says she wants to get better and wants to do whatever it takes at this point ... irrespective of what Judge Elden Fox does to her.

I'd like to think she's doing this for a noble reason - to truly get better, however, I think she's doing this to avoid jail...she's not stupid.....she's an 'actress'(of sorts) and her 'job' is to sucker people in to thinking what she wants them to believe.

She's not getting career or life advice from her lawyer or anyone else. This seems like another shameless ploy, like entering Pickwood for 3 days before the last sentence was issued. I don't believe a word she says, but it'd be interesting to know whether her mom, who claims LiLo doesn't have a drug problem, has changed her tune.

Oh bulls**t.

Same old "run to rehab by their own choice" crap every celebrity pulls to make themselves look responsible and proactive. You know da*n well her attorney probably suggested it so she doesn't get jail time next month.

Yawn.

Honestly, maybe its just time for the people around her to tell her to grow up and get it under control. At some point you would think she might just be embarassed at being a train wreck all the time. Here is a good schedule to go by every day.

1. Wake up and take a Shower!
2. Choose an outfit that looks good and sunglasses that actually fit your face. The aviator thing is over with.
3. Go to work, be on time and be easy to work with.
4. Get home from work and Shower again if your stinky.

Some sidenotes:

If you have writing or self tanning lotion on yourself you need to take a shower or scrub it off. Also, as a semi-celebrity, its nice to not have week old nail polish chipping off your hands. Try staying home for a while instead of partying every night and maybe consider dating a boy for once.

yeah, right. It's her people telling her what to do to "save" what's left of her career. Come on Linds your Momma needs that paycheck. Do your best honey.

SHE didn't decide that. Her LAWYER told her that it was her best defense when that hearing comes up next month.

Please, do not listen to this person anymore. She believes the stories she tells, she has made lying a profession. She needs to go away quietly and if she returns maybe what she has to say might mean something but right now everything that comes out of her mouth is meaningless. The country has tired of this girl, treatment is there for people that have a desire to live and have a life and a family. She is 14 year old child in a grown up suit, she will emotionally mature with sobriety but right now she is sucking up all this attention and the media is feeding her sickness. Lindsey, please shut up and listen to someone that actually still cares about you. Pretty soon there won't be anyone left out there that gives a crap about you and you WILL be alon.

I for one never gave up on Lindsay Lohan.Im very happy that she is going into rehab unlike all the other times she wants to go and she now says she has a problem thats half the battle.I don't belive she is doing for the judge or because she is forced to etc,etc.All the people who write hate on here don't know a damn thing about addiction because if they did they wounldn't be so stupid with thier comments.If any of you had a loved one with this problem you would be singing a diff tune.
I wish nothing but the best for this talented beautiful woman.

BS BS BS if she truly meant it, they would not be announcing. Ploy from her lawyer to try to get her out of jail time. ...again. I'm not going to say I hope she dies like some others but I know I will certainly never spend a penny on anything she is in or supports.

You people are pathic ... she is damned in your eyes if she doesn't get help and damned in your eyes if she does. Please. Go outside.... take a deep breath ... thank God you don't have half Lohan's problems. Run down the street. Go to a football game. Walk the dog. Kiss your children. Give LL the benefit of the doubt. We all know she is a screw-up but she is not the first... nor will she be the last. She is everyone's troubled daugther... so lighten up ... and go for a walk.

how many times has she been in rehab now? a long time in jail would have put the fear in her to not do it again and then a long in-house rehab would hopefully get to the problem.

on second thought, i hate to say this but she may just be one of those people who will never get it together. too bad cause I really like her and her movies. this is some sort of permanent mental disorder. is there a psychologist in the house?

Take heave to your rehab sessions! Listen and learn! Cause if you **** up again, there will not be any more chances! Mama, daddy, relativies, friends not even the judge will not save you from your consequences again! You will not be able to use your I am sorry, it won't happen again manner! You will go to jail or follow by the instructions the judge gives you! No exceptions! So know it is the time to really and truely have an adult with respect and class mind! In other words, grow the **** up!

What a crock of CRAP!!! This woman needs to spend a good hard year in prison and maybe she'll get her crap together before she kills someone. If she wants to destroy her life, then so be it, but stop wasting my damn tax dollars. Why is anyone still a fan of this loser.
