Ozzy Osbourne

Many people all over the world suffer from drug addiction, including celebrities. From time to time, stories about celebrities with addictions make headlines. One of the most popular stars who has battled drug addiction is Ozzy Osbourne.


Ozzy Osbourne

Osbourne has battled his addictions to drugs for many years. When he was an adolescent, he started experimenting with drugs. He said that he suffered from dyslexia and ADD (attention deficit disorder).

Those ailments caused him to feel weird and abnormal. He attributes part of the reason for his drug abuse to self-medication. The drugs made him feel better. Another part of the reason he abused drugs is to have fun and enjoy his life.

At one point in his life, when he was trying to give up alcohol, he asked himself, "How will I enjoy my life?" As well, to an extent, drugs are a part of the lifestyle of Rock N' Roll musicians. It goes without saying that combining fame with a preexisting substance addiction will only exacerbate the problem.

Hash (hashish), LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide), cocaine and alcohol are some of the drugs that Osbourne has used. He has sought help and has done many stints in rehab in order to rid himself of his addiction.

Many people do multiply stints in rehab because it is very difficult to rise above the addiction and stay there. Osbourne has spent time in rehab in the Betty Ford Centre among others. On April 15, 2013 Ozzy Osbourne apologized on Facebook for drinking and drugging for the past 18 months. He said, "I was in a very dark place … However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober."

Unfortunately, drug abuse not only affects the individual, but it also affects the individual's loved ones. Many families do not know how to handle addiction and they, too, feel out of control.

As well, some people do not want to associate with people who do drugs. Fortunately, Osbourne has a very supportive wife, Sharon, as well as very supportive children (Aimee, Jack, Kelly, Elliot, Louis, Jessica and Robert).

Therefore, with rehab and the support of his family, Ozzy Osbourne is overcoming his drug addiction one day at a time. However, Osbourne recently admitted to having a relapse. Nevertheless, he is still working toward sobriety.

Summary

When all is said and done, addictions are difficult to battle whether you are a celebrity or not. As a matter of fact, it can be even more difficult if you are a star because illicit substances become more accessible.
