The other side of the sparkling coin – celebrities battling addictions!
There is a lot hidden behind the glamour and glitterati of celebrity life. Their sudden rags to rich status makes some of them lose themselves to bad addictions. The pressure and competition, the enormous earning and wrong relationships sometimes spiral problems that are beyond their control. They are erring humans concealed behind the picture perfect characters in silver screen. Balancing life at the top of a hell competitive queue is like attempting a tight rope walk; it is not easy up there, resulting to a stressful life that is dependent on drugs or alcohol. But there are instances where some have turned around and kicked the hard habit for a clean and beautiful life.
1 Lindsay Lohan’s battle with addictions – it’s over
Lindsay, a model, actress and singer, tasted success at a very early age. The Hollywood child artist recalled her turbulent battle with addictions at the ‘Oprah Winfrey Show’. It started after her success in the movie ‘Mean Girls’. She rose to stardom, earned too much money and decided to move to Los Angeles against her mother’s will at 18. Indulgence in partying and being surrounded by the wrong people, made her make wrong life choices. ‘Alcohol’ was her choice of addiction, although she did cocaine 10-15 times then. She was addicted to Adderall, an ADHD drug for calming or dieting, not quite revealed. The 6th rehab trip she made was the most satisfactory for her, because she did not treat it like a punishment but was determined to change her life and win back the trust of her fans.
