36 year old TV personality talks Jada Pinkett Smith And watch the company on Facebook about breaking his nearly four-year sobriety. She also told how it started at the age of 13 and progressed to heroin.
In April, she was sitting by a pool waiting to attend a business meeting. She saw a woman and her husband drinking champagne and thought, “I can do that too. The next day I had two glasses. The day after that, it was bottles”
He patted his fingers, “That’s what happened.” And once it started, it didn’t stop. Osbourne admitted, “couldn’t even stop it,” with Osbourne describing himself as a “closet drinker” who “doesn’t like to drink in front of anyone”, noting that his addiction was particularly ” It may be dark”.
As her boyfriend, Eric Bragg, “s***-faced” on the sofa eating pizza, working out was a defining moment in her sabbatical. She said that she had not said anything like that, but a “disappointed” look gave her that straightened her again. After that, she publicly shared her relapse on social media – before telling her family, thinking it would help her hold her accountable. She immediately started outpatient treatment and therapy, and after going through a “tough” time, is now in a better place.
Osbourne said that alcohol was always present in her life because “I came from an alcoholic family,” Referring to dad Ozzy Osbourne. (The Black Sabbath rock star, who is addicted to drugs and alcohol, has been sober for seven years.) She called Ozzy “probably the heaviest drinker in his life.”
However, her troubles started at 13 after moving from England to LA and dealing with insecurities and isolation from the people around her. She said “I was too foreign” and “too English” to the point where “people didn’t understand what I was saying.” Not helping was surrounded by really rich kids, saying that she felt like she woke up and was “in the movie”. no news,” and “didn’t fit anywhere.”
That year, she was actually ill with tonsillitis, which required surgery. She was prescribed the opioid pain reliever Vicodin and it actually set off a lifetime of addiction.
“That’s all I needed,” she said of the drug. “I went from having every voice in my head: ‘You’re fat! You’re ugly! You’re not good enough! No one likes you!’ … Suddenly, every voice fell silent. And it was as if life had embraced me.”
“Very quickly it went from Vicodin to Percocet,” she said, another opiate. And then, “Percocet to Heroin.”
Osbourne said that at age 19 she was “caught buying heroin”, which she replaced because it was cheaper, and the next day mother Sharon Osbourne Put him in rehab. He didn’t take it seriously, she admitted, calling it a “vacation without a bar,” adding that he left with the intention of not changing anything about his life. She’s been going “in and out of those places” ever since. (In her 2017 memoir, she said she’s been to rehab seven times.)
Osbourne said that her addiction problems stunted her personal growth, sharing that she wanted to be a mother for now, but at the same time knowing that she wasn’t “any kind of mother” in the midst of her issues. Will be she likes to spend time with her brother jack osbourneHas three daughters and is one of her confidants when it comes to sobriety as she has 18 years.
Osbourne said she has such a dependence that she can become “addicted to anything” like food, which she struggled with. (she lost 85 pounds because she had gastric sleeve surgery Last year.) But alcohol has become the biggest, calling it “the drug of choice… I love it. I don’t like it because of how it makes me feel. I like how it doesn’t make me feel.” I want to be numb in everything.”
Now again on a sober journey, leaning into the 12 Step Program and going through daily therapy, Osbourne admits, “It’s a fight every single day for me. It’s never going to be easy.”
