Ozzy Osbourne Sobriety

The infamous former lead singer of the rock band Black Sabbath has come clean on his troubles with alcoholism and drug addiction.

Although Ozzy Osbourne is currently clean and sober, as is his daughter Kelly Osborne and his son Jack Osbourne, who incidentally was recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis after struggling with alcoholism for years, has recently begun discussing his more than forty years of drug and alcohol abuse.

As many of you may already know Ozzy has been plagued by noticeable tremors that were thought to be linked to his very excessive, not to mention long-time drug and alcohol abuse.

In 2010, the 64 year old revealed that the tremors were actually caused by a rare genetic disorder, Parkin syndrome, similar to Parkinson's disease.

The 2005 diagnosis was a significant variable that propelled the the rock God to finally turn his back on drugs and alcohol.

As you might have already calculated, Osbourne is 8 years clean and sober! What a Great feat, particularly for someone who used drugs and alcohol for so long! Congratulations Ozzy!

Ozzy once famously stated in an interview, "I can't remember when my first child was born". Severe memory loss was one of the many complications of his drug and alcohol abuse.

These days, Ozzy is doing much better. "I have a new lease on life", he says.

"I don’t drink. I don’t do drugs. I don’t smoke,……..I have even managed to get a driver's license."

For all of you interested in obtaining freedom from drugs, alcohol, and the wreckage that you have been experiencing, enter sobriety! You will obtain the life of your dreams!!
