Rock star Courtney Love has been sober for a year and three months and credits Buddhism with helping her get her life back on track. The MALIBU singer has just released a new book, DIRTY BLONDE: THE DIARIES OF COURTNEY LOVE, which includes old photographs, scribbled song lyrics and even an email exchange with Lindsay Lohan regarding dealing with negative press coverage. Love insists her hard-partying days are behind her and claims her conversion to Buddhism helped her remain sober. She explains, "I'm a Buddhist now and I chant every day. I chant for a long time. "Some people that chant, I'm just going to out them, Orlando Bloom chants, Tina Turner, they do half an hour a day. "But I was doing four and five hours a day sometimes. With smoke breaks!"
