Tara Reid just completed a 60 day detox program at celeb fave Promises in Malibu and she's already pimped out her rehab story to InTouch Weekly!
She tells the mag, "Rehab saved my life. Before, I used to think about tomorrow and I hated it. Now, I can't wait because I am clean and sober and I am excited. I wanted a future, and that wasn't going to happen with what I was doing before."
Don't be a Lohan, Terror! Hope this sober thing sticks for you!
Tara goes on to tell the mag that it was her alcohol use, not drugs, that was the problem.
Here are some of the sit down HIGHlights:
Q. What made you go to rehab?
A. In November, I was in Israel at the Western Wall. You write a prayer on a paper and fold it up and put it in the wall. One of the things I wished for was health and happiness and something changed inside me. I realized partying is not what I am anymore.
Q. Was alcohol the only reason?
A. Yes. I never had a problem with drugs. When I go back to when my life went wrong, it all came back to alcohol. I wasn't myself completely and I wasn't happy. I numbed my feelings. It was no life to live.
Q. Why do you think you drank so much?
A. Part of it was the image I had. When I went out, everyone always wanted to have a drink with me. Because I was known as this fun party girl, I became that person. I was doing shots with people, and I didn't know when enough was enough. One drink is too many, and 1,000 aren't enough.
Q. Any other reasons?
A. I was actually shy in real life, and I felt like everyone was judging me and watching me. I think I drank because it gave me a kind of confidence.
Q. How bad did it get?
A. I have sleeping problems so I would drink to pass out and sleep. I was more of a night drinker.
Q. Are you eager to get back to acting?
A. Do you know how grateful I will be if I start acting again? It'll mean so much to me. I'll give it everything I have. I can't wait!
We'll be watching, Tara!
Don't slip up!
