April 7, 2014 -- Lindsay Lohan has admitted to a relapse.
She had a drink shortly after leaving rehab last summer, the actress, 27, said on her OWN documentary series.
"Being in recovery and leaving a place where you're in this little bubble and everything is safe around you, it's really hard," she said. "I jumped right into a relationship where we weren't on the same page. I wasn't considering the fact that the person I was seeing does drink and I had a glass of wine."
Coming to terms with her relapse wasn't easy, she said. Indeed, it was difficult for her even to say out loud that she'd had a drink.
"I just had so much guilt. It took me a bit to, like, finally just be, like, 'Why am I holding this in? Yeah. F*** it. I screwed up.' I screwed up, and that's OK, but now what can I do so that it doesn't happen again?" she said. "That's part of the process. That's a part of life."
Now living in New York City, Lohan, who works with a counselor and attends Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, tries to ignore false rumors about her that she sees online. One such rumor cropped up recently about her drinking at a friend's house, she said.
"I don't give it any life because there's no truth to it," she said. "The more that I give it energy, I feel like more people will feed on that."
