Los Angeles - Courtney Love has become Lindsay Lohan's sobriety coach.

The Hole singer - widow of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain - has battled drink and drug addiction in the past and wants to pass her knowledge and advice to the troubled actress, who has been in rehab five times.

She said: "I've taken up Lohan because nobody else will. (She's) further down the line than I was, because there was no (gossip websites like) TMZ then."

This is not the first time Courtney,47, has revealed she is helping 25-year-old Lindsay - who is currently completing her court ordered community service - stay away from drink and drugs.

'Drugs are bad'

She recalled to Details magazine: "I went up to Lindsay's room one time and there was a show on called 101 Celebrity Oops and I am like every other one, you know - boobs out, legs everywhere, throwing shit at Madonna, you know, whatever. I'm like 'Lindsay, look! Drugs are bad!' "

Courtney has had help from her celebrity pals in the past to help beat her addictions, in particular, Orlando Bloom.

Speaking in 2008, she revealed: "We chant every day. The 12-step programme demands that you have a spiritual practice that you do daily.

"I love Orlando for this. He doesn't mind being outed as a Buddhist. I don't mind talking about it because it has changed my entire life, changed everything - restructured my body, restructured my physicality. Truly I can, not all the time, but I can take joy at really shitty situations."
