I agree man and think she should be in jail. If I did the same, I would be treated more harsh. This is bullshit and think the judge should treat her with hostile intention.

Rehab is for quitters!  stirthepot 

I've said it before and I'll say it again...Lindsey stands a good chance of being dead within 5 years but given her recent antics I'll up that to dead within year.

That said I really don't care one way or the other what happens to her (despite posting in this thread) and will chalk up to bad parenting and nobody ever telling this dumb broad NO.

May be true, but as it's played out, she's in rehab (again...). And I hope that she is able to get clean and sober and stay clean and sober, if it's what she wants to do. Obviously, last time, she didn't want to.

I've got no love for her at all, but I hope she is able to shed her demons, if for no other reason than because she's a role model for young girls, whether she likes it or not.

Neither would I. They all have to be themselves, not try to immitate a celebrity, especially since those celebrity "role models" are for the vast majority NEGATIVE role models. Just remember how many girls have anorexia or bulimia, just because they wanted to look like celebrities/top models. And Lindsey "Junkie" Lohan doesn't look like she's in a healthy shape either, apart from the drug and alcohol issues.

I just like watching the spectacular crash-and-burn of self righteous people like little Lindsey what's her name. She always acted like she knew everything. Well, now honey, you're a cokehead and nobody will think you're so beautiful anymore. Enjoy your long downhill slide! New, younger girls will replace her. Too bad for her, enjoy the ride down.

Didn't mean to suggest otherwise, if you thought I did. Good to see that you'll take a stand against that with your kids. Much respect.

But, we all know that there are plenty of young girls who look up to the likes of her. But she has to want to get better for herself, foremost. Which, apparently, she hasn't wanted to do.

Which is exactly why they need to send her to jail. All those people who "look up to her" (why? I don't know) need to know that doing what she's doing will land you a nice stay at the local slammer. And I'm not refering to "country-club prison" either.

That's the point we need to get across. You f*** up. You pay the price. Simple as that. That's great if society wants to incorporate rehab as part of the prison system. But all too many celebrities use "rehab" (yea, I put that in quotes to symbolize that their rehab system is a complete joke) to avoid going to jail.

RE: Lindsey Lohan Back In Rehab

Wed Aug 08, 2007 4:56 am

Could it maybe the case that she is a real alcoholic and in need of comprehensive therapy and also privacy?
Some years ago we had an actor in Germany, Harald Juhnke, who, when sober, was an extremely good actor, in movies, TV and theatre, but he was also an alcoholic and the tabloid press was just waiting for his next excess, like driving drunk, picking fights in bars or being found passed out on some sidewalk. Whenever he went out, he was shadowed by paparazzi, hoping to get a picture of him in an embarrassing situation, and unfortunately, he rarely disappointed them.

AFAIK, Lindsay Lohan has a very ambitious mother, who has been pushing her into an acting career since she was a child. Ok, unlike Paris Hilton she has a
profession (and apparently, when not drunk, she is a capable actress, though i have never watched a movie of hers).
Give her a break. Whenever you guys f*ck up, it is NOT being plastered all over national TV.
I'll bet she also has lots of false friends, who stear her into situations (parties) where she gets smashed.
Temptation ("just have a beer with me, one won't cause any damage!"), which she can not control (same as Harald Juhnke, she obviously doesn't know how to stop when she starts drinking, she might also still be in the denial stage, where she doesn't realise yet that she is addicted and has to stay totally off the stuff since she is not able to control it, and this means staying away from any temptation, like going to parties).
All the publicity doesn't really help.
If she breaks the law though, then she has to face the consequences, but if Joe Sixpack gets caught DUI, his face won't be posted all over the US. It should be a matter between her, the jury, the judge, the prosecutor and the defender.

She's already had a lot of breaks. Why should she get another break? At best, she probably doesn't work any harder than Joe Sixpack trying to hold a job and raise a family. She has more money and more access to stuff than 99% of the population her age will even come close to, and you want me to "give her a break"? Puh-leeze.

I just hope Ms. Lohan is in a long term facility, not another '30 day wonder cure' resort. By the way, the 30 day terms of institutional care are usually the limit that most people's health insurance will pay for, and can help some addicts but not many like Ms. Lohan. I am quite sure Ms. Lohan can afford from her income her need for high end, long term institutional rehab. She needs to be away from family, her staff, her so called friends, places with alcohol access or service, and not be outside at all of the institution for several months to get the start to her dealing with her addictions and probably deeper psychological problems. I do hope she makes it for her own sake to learn to live without alcohol.

IMO she is clearly an alcohol addict.
She is also living in a society where traditionally alcohol is being seen as amoral (see 18th amendment to the US constitution in the 1920s, abolishionist movement etc.), so you guys have ridiculous drinking laws, which in fact promote binge drinking and do not help very much to teach a sensible use of alcoholic drinks.

Exactly. You guys and girls got it right. But first she will have to recognise THAT she has a problem. At the moment she still seems to deny it (a typical reaction of addicts). A rehab will only work if she is really willing to cooperate. And there WILL be lapses. But it doesn't help if the nation's tabloid press is waiting to gloat over any mistake she makes.
Joe Sixpack has it easier in this aspect.
Now, if she would get a tough sentencing by a judge concerning some alcohol related offense, it might actually help.
Usually addicts, to realise that they need to basically start a new life, need to realise that they have reached the end and landed in the gutter. Often you have to drop them to create a true wish within themselves to change their lifestyle. Only then will a true rehab work (not a lip service one). If she would spend a few months in a regular pen, it actually might help her to realise THAT she has a problem.
But expect that, when she comes out eventually, due to her status as actress, false friends and the press will try her to get drunk again, as they did with the German actor Harald Juhnke (who eventually lost his mind and died in a mental institution).

But the moment she (or anyone for that matter) gets behind the wheel of a car while under the influence, I have no sympathy for her (them) and believe these people should be prosecuted and justice served.

Pretty selfrighteous you are. I'll bet you never broke any f#cking rule all your short life (since you claim you are still underage). Strong punishment cures everything.

You don't seem to understand that an addiction like alcoholism is a sickness. The person suffering from it can not make any sensible decisions, at least as long as he/she is under the influence (and this means also temptation) of the medium he/she is addicted to.

The only thing which will help is a long time rehab (though a few people are able to pull themselves out of the mess on their own), but to be effective the person needs:
a) a strong incentive (this can be that the addict really realises that he/she is at the bottom and there is no other way to go
b) a will to follow it through
c) support from true friends / family, who are helping (not coddling!) and keep temptation away.

If you didn't want to talk about her, why did you post in the thread?

If people are so disgusted by her...one could ask the question: "Why would you even talk about her?"  Yeah sure

BTW, "good friends" in this case are people, who e.g. would take her car keys away if she gets drunk and see her home before the paparazzi turn up. People who do not take advantage of her (and this BTW includes her mother).

And the question remains... If people are so disgusted by her, why glorify it with tribute threads?

Christ, her name is on TV every 30 fricken seconds practically. If she takes a crap and forgets to wipe, we'll hear about it. There is no lack of media coverage on her life. Trust me...we'll hear about her next shopping trip, manicure, and next 4 trips to rehab all without the help of an internet message board.

Try *equal* punishment. That would be nice. That possession of cocaine the cops found in her pants should alone land her a few months in prison. Oh wait, that's right "It's not mine".  rotfl

Well, I'm sorry for thinking that people who make decisions that seriously threaten the lives of other people, especially multiple times should receive a little more than a slap on the wrist and a hug from society saying "it's okay, honey."

Well, since she fails to recognize her sickness, it's up to the judicial system to help her recognize it, even if that means a cold, hard dose of reality.

Probably wreck her car on the way home.  wink

FlyDeltaJets87, MD11Engineer:

You guys are both right on certain points. As MD11Engineer states, alcoholism and other addictions are extremely complicated, and the people who suffer from them do not act logically.

As FlyDeltaJets87 states, however, being an alcoholic or an addict DOES NOT excuse your bad decision making. Getting behind the wheel of a car while under the influence is a crime no matter who you are. Part of the recovery process from addiction is taking full responsibility for your actions.

Obviously it is the new trend for those " wanna be" celebrity kids who btw have not achieved a lot in their lives to get caught for DUI, having drugs in their cars and get jailed.
Same thing is with Pete Doherty ( this lousy UK drug addict) who is still not in jail.


Is the society that bored that we need those idiots in the news for entertainment.

Agreed. We all are responsible for our own actions we make. She needs to be too.
