After his relapse...
In an interview with NME, Ozzy Osbourne said that he didn't blame his wife Sharon from temporarily leaving him after his recent drug and alcohol relapse. He revealed that he had been doing drugs and drinking for the past eighteen months back in April. He posted a message on Facebook at the time which said he stopped his "insane behavior" and was 44 days sober. Now he says he is still sober but was once afraid of losing his family.
He said: "She was very pissed off. I thought I was gonna lose my family at one point. Because when I go out, you wanna be careful when I come back home, because I'll come through anywhere in the house bar the front fucking door. I'm fucking crazy. If you're in a relationship, if you keep coming home and your wife's terrified of you, if she doesn't know if you'll come back with five chicks and a crate of booze… I mean, you name it, I've done it. So she just said, 'Look, I've got my own thing going on, and I can't deal with you any more. Get the fuck out. Sort yourself out, then we'll talk.' I don't blame her in the slightest."
He was also asked what caused him to relapse in the first place. He added: "It's like water drips from a tap and you go 'Fuck it'. For no reason at all, you'll suddenly think, 'I fancy a drink', and your head will say, 'Let yourself have one'. Next thing you know you're scraping yourself off the garage floor three days later. It's like having a haunted fucking head. You've got these voices saying, 'Don't worry about it Ozzy. Anyone would have a drink if their album went to Number One in all those countries.' But you're doing a deal with the Devil. It's a disease of the mind and body, and you can't control it."
