Kelly Osbourne reveals secret relapse a year ago as she celebrates year of sobriety and thanks parents and brother for their support
The 33-year-old TV star, who has spoken in the past about her struggles with drug and alcohol addiction, thanked her parents Sharon and Ozzy and brother Jack in an emotional Instagram post.
Alongside a screenshot of a Twelve Steps app – the treatment programme devised by Alcoholics Anonymous to help sufferers – which showed the singer and presenter had been sober a whole year, the star shared a lengthy heartfelt caption to her 2.1million followers.
She wrote: "This past year has been one of the hardest years of my life and I feel it’s time share that with you guys.
"To cut a long story short things got really dark. I gave up on everything in my life but most of all I gave up on myself. Life on life’s terms became to much for me to handle.
"The only way I knew how to function was to self medicate and go from project to project so I never had to focus on what was really going on with me.
"Something had to give… and it did. I have spend the past year truly working on my mind body and soul! I had to take a step out of the public eye away from work and give myself a chance to heal and figure out who the f**k I really am without a camera in my face."
Kelly also thanked her famous family, including mum Sharon, 65, dad Ozzy, 69, and brother Jack, 32, in the emotional post.
She continued: "I want to take this time to thank my brother @jackosbourne who answered the phone to me one year ago today and picked me up from where I had fallen yet again without judgment. He has held my hand through out this whole process. "Thank you to my Mum and Dad for never giving up on me. I love my family with all my heart. Thank you to the friends who have walked the path of sobriety with me I could not have done this with out there love and support.
"I can’t believe It’s been a year!!! I still don’t know who the f**k I am or what the f**k I want but I can whole heartedly confess that I’m finally at peace with myself and truly starting to understand what true happiness is. I’m sorry if I let anyone down it was just time for me to work on me! I love you guys!"
It comes as the star, who rose to fame on The Osbournes, opened up about her daily battle to stay sober on Loose Women recently.
She told the panel: "Relapse is one of the hardest things we face as an open addict who has gone through the programme and turned their life around.
"But people need to know that rehab doesn't fix you. It just gets you on the right track. You're never fixed.
"You spend your whole entire life doing everything you can to never pick up and use again."
Kelly revealed on the show that her biggest addictions were drugs and alcohol.
She said: "The sad part about addiction is it does not discriminate."
Last month Kelly told The Sun's Bizarre column that she relies on therapy once a week to help with her alcoholism.
She has previously claimed she has had numerous struggles with alcohol and drug addiction after struggling to cope with depression at the age of 17.
In an exclusive interview she said: “I believe everybody should have therapy.
“There’s still a huge stigma, especially in this country. You work out to keep your body good so you go to therapy to keep your mind good.
“Your mind, body and soul are the full package. I try and go once a week."
