    Hello, I'm Lindsay Lohan and I'm a alcoholic - MSNBC.com

    Story at: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15993599/

    Lindsay Lohan’s mom confirms she’s in AA

    Says her daughter is making ‘slow progress’ and ‘doesn’t want to be judged’

    Lindsay Lohan poses with her mother Dina. In an interview Friday, Dec. 1 with E! Entertainment Television's Ryan Seacrest, Dina said she thinks that Lindsay attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings is "a positive thing."

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. - After weeks of speculation, Dina Lohan confirmed earlier this morning that her daughter Lindsay is involved with Alcoholics Anonymous.

    Despite the privacy practiced by AA, mama Lohan publicly confirmed her 20-year-old daughter has attended meetings for the group during a visit to Ryan Seacrest’s morning show on KIIS FM radio in Los Angeles.

    “It’s true,” Dina told Ryan. “A lot of people she hangs out with go and it’s a positive thing.”

    Dina was accompanying her 12-year-old daughter, Ali, who was promoting the tween’s new Christmas album on the show. When Ryan asked Dina if she gives Lindsay advice on negotiating her Hollywood lifestyle, mama Lohan responded that her eldest daughter is doing fine.

    “As a parent you tell them what you can tell them, but she’s 20 and I’m not gonna say stay home and don’t go out,” she told the KIIS host. “That’s a ridiculous thing to do. When you’re 20 you have to learn a lot on your own so I’m there for support and I’ll obviously give her my opinion, but she’s fine. She’s OK.”

    Leslie Sloane, publicist for the star affirmed Dina’s statement that Lindsay is in AA. “She is attending meetings. It’s a positive thing,” Sloane told Access Hollywood. She added that Lindsay has been to a couple of meeting and that the star is making “slow progress” and “doesn’t want to be judged.”

    Known for hitting the town regularly, rumors began to surface that Lindsay had become involved with the substance abuse program after she was captured wearing a ‘90 days’ red button (associated with the AA program) at a premiere.

    Another instance that raised speculation she was receiving treatment was her statement she released following the news that her “A Prairie Home Companion” director, Robert Altman, had passed away. The statement quoted a mantra in AA’s 12 step program.

    The media response to that statement, which included reporters suggesting it was written while Lohan was partying, prompted Lindsay’s longtime publicist Sloane to speak out in defense of the star.

    If Lindsay is actually attempting to work a program, that's wonderful news for her. If she is just relaying this information through a publicist to try and clear up her out-of-control party girl image, then it's pretty sickening.

    Honestly, if she was actually trying to work a program, why would she be hanging out at bars every night and chilling with the likes of Paris "I vomit booze while singing my own music" Hilton and Britney "La-la-la-la-labia baby" Spears? Really dear, you're only fooling yourself.

    It's a shame. Lindsey was such a cute little girl. She looks so trashy and washed up, and she's only 20. Her mother looks like she's been around the block a few times, too. Guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. They both look like they've lead a hard life.

    If nothing else, she's a shoo-in for an endorsement deal with "Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill".

    Lindsay Lohan Checks in....to AA

    I wish her well. In all seriousness, if she has a problem, I hope she beats it, or in Alcoholisms case, contains it.

    Now Back to making fun of her...

    Maybe now she will be able keep her clothes on unlike her friends, Britney, Paris, and Tara....lol.

    She had everything going for her. A major career in entertainment and she threw it all away. No one is going to want anything to do with her. She has over-exposed herself way too much. It is what is happening with Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and all those girls. I don't think they care at all to realize that their actions are having an extremely negative effect on American society. In a time when America could use a tremendous amount of help, these people are scattered all over the covers of magazines, newspapers and television shows portraying this lifestyle that is so just degrading.

    She looks terrible in that picture. I can't imagine what she will look like when she is her mother's age.

    I'm going to give Ms. Lohan the benefit of the doubt, and wish her well as she works her program against that ever-present "devil in the bottle".

    I am familiar with what it's like to be an addict, and have worked 12 Step programs based on the AA principles. Those principles have saved untold numbers of lives.

    For her sake, I hope Ms. Lohan finds peace with her Higher Power, whoever she believes it to be...and finds strength in her new-found sobriety one day at a time.

    It's sad that a 20 year old is in AA. She's not old enough to legally drink yet!

    I don't think Lindsay has thrown anything away yet. If she's sincere, AA is her way of getting back on track. She actually has a lot of promise as an actress and a person and I wish her well. She's made her share of bad choices which many of us have bagged on (myself included). I think it's time to give her a chance to turn her life around.

    I do wish Lindsay all the best in the days, months, and years to come. Growing up in an alcoholic environment I know how tough it must be. I'm not going to bag on her, I'm not going to poke fun of her. I am simply going to wish her good luck during this journey we call life.
