And after we all had such high hopes for her.
Yeah, last week Lindsay tested positive for cocaine, and she also failed another drug test for an unspecified substance that was not cocaine. The failure of a drug test is supposed to mean 30 days of jail, but I guess we’ll see about that. I mean, she spent only 23 of what was originally 90 days in rehab, so it doesn’t look like anyone is too concerned about strict adherence to sentences in this situation. It’s also being said that because of these test results, the judge might refuse to let Lindsay leave the state, which would mean no Inferno or Saturday Night Live, but again, we’ll see.
In typical Lindsay fashion, she took to her Twitter to explain the situation:
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!!!
To be honest, I’m kind of over it. At this point, I feel like Lindsay is kind of like my cousin who used to be completely awesome and fun and smart and just great until she started doing cocaine, and it was a little iffy for a few years, like there were still the memories of her being her old self and doing great things, but then she went off to snort a line or whatever, and now it’s hard to care anymore because she keeps dropping out of rehab and telling lies and stealing my grandma’s nerve pills. That’s what Lindsay Lohan is like.
I know addiction is a disease, but if you don’t treat a disease, it’s not really going to get better.
