Lilo, who was sent to rehab after her March 2013 no-contest plea to reckless driving and lying to police, admitted that being confined for three months straight and then to adapt to real life, was tough, but it felt more like a true surrender compared to previous punishments, Us Magazine reported.
The 27-year-old actress revealed that she had been craving peace long before she was sent to rehab.
She said that her downward spiral began when she moved to Los Angeles in her late teens, riding high on the success of her Mean Girls show and admitted that she snorted cocaine 10-15 times in her lifetime, but only did it in order to drink more.
Despite her past trysts, she promised that this time is different and hopes to regain the success she once had.
