Legendary frontman Ozzy Osbourne’s son and famous television personality, Jack Osbourne, has shared a new post on his official Instagram account and made an inspiring announcement about his alcohol problems.

As you might already know, Jack has been sober from alcohol and drugs since 2003, and he has been doing a great job to stay away from these bad habits just like Ozzy Osbourne. Like father, like son, they are both making a new path for their lives.

In the caption of the post, Jack celebrated his 17th year of sobriety and stated that it’s so strange to celebrate this moment during the lockdown. Furthermore, he mentioned how he got rid of his alcohol addiction and explained how hard getting sober was.

As of writing this, Jack’s post reached around 34K likes less than fifteen hours, and most of the fans shared their reactions in the comment section.

Here is what Jack Osbourne wrote:

“If someone would have told me 17 years ago I’d be celebrating my 17th year of sobriety locked down at home because of a global pandemic I’d of literally laughed in their face. However shitty this current situation is I am still filled with such a large amount of gratitude.

Getting sober can be hard and staying sober is even harder, but I am here today because I threw my hands up and said ‘fuck it tell me what I need to do.’ I surrendered to the fact that I will never be a normal drinker and that drugs and alcohol will only ever lead to bad things for me.”

He continued:

“I went to meetings, worked steps, help newcomers and surrounded myself with strong sober people. The road map is simple but it doesn’t make it easy.

For anyone who is struggling in this very strange time, there are plenty of resources available that can be accessed from the comfort of your home while we can’t leave. Don’t be afraid to reach out.”

Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford said:

“Happy 17th Jack 🎂💜🤘🏻”

A fan named Adam added this comment:

“I feel for the newcomers. Thanks for letting them know we’re here for them. Happy Anniversary.”

Another fan named Blane Medford wrote:

“Awesome achievement! The world is better with you in it! Congratulations!”
