Lindsay Lohan

Don't Believe Your Eyes ...

I Was NOT Wining

Lindsay Lohan
wasn't reaching for a wine bottle in the photo that surfaced Wednesday morning ... it's an optical illusion ... that's Lindsay's story, anyway.

Sources close to Lindsay tell us, Lindsay was actually reaching for her purse and cell phone on the same counter top, and the photo angle (above) was set up to make it look like she was grabbing the wine bottle instead.

Lindsay is adamant she has NOT fallen off the wagon -- in fact, she's telling friends she's been faithfully attending multiple AA meetings per week, and has continued therapy since leaving rehab.

The photo was taken at a friend's house ... who clearly had wine while Lindsay was visiting. Sounds like a bad idea, but we're told Lindsay has overcome her desire to drink, and has no problem hanging with boozers.

In fact, as we reported, LiLo thinks she's doing so well ... she's ditched her sober coach, insisting she can handle sobriety on her own.

Where have we heard that before?

I think maybe the reason there is no photo showing what she actually retrieved, is because it WAS her purse - no story there.

One only needs to get rid of a sober coach for one reason. If one truly doesn't want to drink one would find another sober coach fast.

She lies constantly, but you would think someone snapping a pic of her from outside a window, grabbing for a bottle, would also get the money shot of her holding the bottle.. no? Either way this won't last long.. first step is deciding 'you' can handle everything, can be around drinkers, next it will be that you 'can' have just 'one'... then you drunk on the ground or running people over in your car.

Look at her hand! If you were going to grab a purse your hand would not be in the position it is in . That is a bottle grabbing position. To grab the purse the hand would be reaching in a downward motion not reaching out and across the purse to the bottle behind it. Gotcha again Lindsay!

Then why are her eyes looking at the wine bottle and not her purse? Did the photog make her eyes look like an optical illusion as well? I think not!!

Id she were sober she wouldn't even be AROUND an open bottle of wine. Wine is not like oxygen that's simply everywhere. It has to be there ON PURPOSE!

Too-few want Lindsey to succeed.


Too-many ... want Lindsey to fail.


Why would any of us - root for someone else to fail.

In the beginning of my 12 step program and recovery.


I was going to multiple A.A. meetings per DAY.


"Meeting-hopping."


Early morning in the Marina, a nooner in Santa Monica, the five p.m. in West L.A., etc.


When they say 90 in 90 days?


They mean much, much more - that's bare minimum.

The thing is, would she nail you? The way your mouth is, I doubt anyone would.

What's wrong with her drinking a glass of wine RESPONSIBLY?
