Kelly Osbourne is opening up about the “most difficult years of her life.
The 33-year-old TV personality took to Instagram on Thursday to celebrate a year of sobriety and how she overcame a “dark” period in her life.
“In the past year is one of the most difficult years of my life and I feel that it is time [to] share that with you,” Osbourne began. “To cut a long story short, it was really dark. I gave up on everything in my life, but most of all I gave up on myself. The life on the life of the conditions was too much for me to handle. The only way that I knew how to function was to self-medicate and go from project to project, so I never had to focus on what’s really going on with me.”

“I can only tell you about what I have experienced and what I know of myself, and that is a setback is one of the hardest things that we face as an addict who has gone through the program and turned their lives around,” she shared during an appearance on the British talk show “Loose Women.” “As an addict, if I wanted to relapse, if I wanted to, I could be sober companions, I could have my parents there, I could have my best friends there… and if I wanted to get it, I would get it. It has nothing to do with the people around you.”
Meanwhile, this week, Lovato checked out of the hospital and went into rehab. The singer also canceled the rest of her tour to focus on her well-being.
