Ozzy Osbourne Thought Betty Ford Clinic Would Teach Him How To Drink
US President's wife and addiction treatment pioneer Ford died at the age of 93 last week, after dedicating her life to helping people deal with the kind of drink and drug issues which seriously affected her own life. Ozzy paid tribute to his 1984 stay at her clinic, telling the Sunday Mercury: "I phoned them and told them. 'I'm coming in.' The woman asked me, 'What drugs are you doing right now?'
"I told her, 'Booze and coke.' She said, 'I want you to keep doing them until you get here.'" he said. "Well, I thought, 'F**king hell – this is going to be a great place!' Sharon told me it was a club where they'd teach me to drink like a gentleman." more on this story
