Jack Osbourne Opens Up About Staying Sober After Being Diagnosed With MS
Jack Osbourne shared how he was able to stay sober after being diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2012. While speaking to Variety in February 2021, Osbourne stated that his loved ones were able to keep him from spiraling out of control after the diagnosis.
“I felt deflated and frustrated,” Jack Osbourne recalled. “Because I was like, ‘Well, what was the point? What was the point in even doing any of this bull—? I should have just burned it all down years ago.’ But then I did what I have done my whole adult life in recovery: I reached out to the people in my tribe, and kind of told them what was going on.”
Jack Osbourne also said that the advice from his loved ones helped him through the situation. “Someone very close to me gave me the sound advice of, ‘Well, are you going to die today?’ And I was like, ‘No.’ He’s like, ‘Are you going to die tomorrow?’ And I was like, ‘No.’ And he’s like, ‘Well, call me tomorrow,’”
Jack Osbourne went onto add he approached his illness much like he had learned as part of the 12-step-program. “It’s a cliché term, but when it comes to my ailment, I tend to have a day-at-a-time-type attitude around it. I have no guarantee what my life will look like in five, 10 or 15 years. So I just try and focus on what’s right in front of me.”
