Just as Ozzy Osbourne announced his relapse on Facebook last week, his son Jack Osbourne was getting ready to celebrate his 10th year of sobriety. The reality TV star, who was 17 when he checked into rehab, marked the milestone yesterday 4/21/13 with a romantic dinner with his wife Lisa. Osbourne, 27, tweeted that he "never thought was was gonna happen 10 years ago" along with a screengrab from his 12 Steps AA Companion iPhone app, which showed he'd been sober for ten years, or the equivalent of 87,692 hours. Jack's loved ones took to social media to express their support; his wife tweeted that she was "So proud of my strong, inspiring man." And his sister Kelly, who's had her own struggles with addiction, tweeted: "My brother @MrJackO is a f**king legend!!!!" Jack's drinking and drug problems reached a dramatic peak on-screen during the second season of his family's MTV reality show show The Osbournes in 2002. Shortly after the show aired, he checked himself into the Las Encinas clinic in Pasadena, California and has been sober ever since. Meanwhile, Ozzy recently celebrated 49 days clean since his recent relapse, by "rocking out HARD" while performing with his band Black Sabbath in New Zealand.

Normies React to the 12 Steps

"I think admitting to having a problem in general is the right first step, but to admit powerlessness is unhealthy. .. I think admitting powerlessness is more harmful because it doesn't help. Admitting that you want and need help is more useful after admittance."
