Lindsay Lohan Admits Alcohol Addiction In Exclusive Oprah Interview

In a tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, troubled child star Lindsay Lohan admitted she's an addict.

The 27-year-old sat down with Oprah just four days after leaving rehab and confessed she was an addict, had used cocaine more than she'd previously admitted and had problems with alcohol.

During the interview on Oprah's Next Chapter the host focused on L-Lo's addiction, beginning with a pretty direct question. "Are you an addict?" she asked.

"Yeah," Lindsay responded.

"What's your drug of choice," asked Oprah.

"Alcohol," she answered. "That, in the past, was a gateway to other things for me... I tried cocaine with alcohol."

Following Lindsay's first arrest for possession of banned substances, she said that she'd only taken cocaine three of four times. But during her conversation with Oprah, Linds revealed it was more. "I really haven't done it more than 10 to 15 times. Of course, I said three or four. I was terrified of being judged.

"[Cocaine] allowed me to drink more. I think that's why I did it when I did it. It was a party thing. I snorted it. I've never injected anything, except getting B-12 shots... But yeah, it went hand in hand with drinking."
