Lindsay Lohan

Jail Scares the Crap Out of Me ... So I Chose Rehab

EXCLUSIVE

0318_lindsay_lohan_tmz

It's not a promising sign ... but we've learned Lindsay Lohan did NOT accept the plea deal of 90 days in lockdown rehab because she wants to beat substance abuse -- she chose it because it beats jail.

We broke the story ... prosecutors have offered Lindsay the 90-day lockdown rehab deal for weeks, but she consistently rejected it. Her change of heart came at the last minute -- 30,000 feet in the air as she belatedly flew to L.A. for her trial.

Lindsay is telling friends she actually likes the rehab option, because it will allow her to focus on herself without any distractions.

Here's the problem. Lindsay is still saying -- ADAMANTLY -- she does NOT have a substance abuse problem. People in the rehab world say ... it's virtually impossible for anyone in rehab to get better if they don't admit having a problem.

Lindsay has been down this route before, but the rehab experience has never stuck.

Wow, so she's scared of jail huh?? If you do the crime, then do the time. She makes these pathetic life choices and someone always bails her out. The only way she is going to learn is if people STOP feeling sorry for her and bailing her out. Once she hits rock bottom than she has a chance to climb back up. But it requires work, honesty and facing up to your responsibilities and that is just not her. I think time better spent would be in a psychiatric facility. She obviously has parental issues with co dependency, abuse and a whole host of other things. A psychiatric facility would be a automatic detox. There is no booze, marijuana, and other things that she takes. And they can make her stay if she is not ready for society. Once she get's her bipolar/depression/family issues straightened out, she has a shot. Being on a anti depressant would not hurt either. Clear up the mental health issues and the addiction issues will be a whole lot better to deal with.
But the thing is that once she is in there, she has to WANT to try. None of this new age karma crap that she keeps spouting. It obviously is not helping her at all. She can think positive all she wants and doesn't want to hear 'Negative thinking" all she wants but she has to face reality sometime. You can think positive all you want, which is good, but not if you have issues and addictions that you are not dealing with.
And if she does all this and get's out , she needs to ditch all her friends that encourage her behavior and get a whole set of new friends. And she might be asked to limit her time with her enabling mother also. I believe that she can do it if she wants too, but we will see.

Lindsay looks older and uglier as time goes on. Those duck lips look like Octomom. Lindsay is a mess.

Some program somewhere will take her and she will be released or leave early. That will be a violation of the plea agreement. Has any other judge told Lindsay that if she violates any condition of her probation she will serve time in jail? Oh that's right! All of them. So far, nothing has happened. Lindsay knows this and is betting on getting away with it again. She has been released early from other rehab facilities and will bet on being released early this time too. Everyone says she will never learn. She has learned and learned well. She can continue to flaunt the laws, lie, blame others, cry that she has turned her life around, and things go on as usual. Nothing new here.

LiLo was a cute girl once like when she was in that movie with Jane Fonda and now she looks at least ten years older than her age. Poor girl needs a man to honestly love her and look after her.
