Osbourne: 'Don't blame Hollywood for wild stars' addiction problems'

The wild Tinseltown lifestyle has been held responsible for the drink and drug demons of a string of stars including Osbourne, his sister Kelly and Lindsay Lohan - all of whom have undergone rehab to kick addictions.

But the rock heir and reality TV star insists there's a bigger drinking problem in his native Britain.

Osbourne says, "I actually think it's harder to avoid drinking in England. There's such a drinking culture, it's like, 'Oh it's lunchtime, let's go to the pub.' It's not like that in America."

After a stint in rehab in California for addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs, the 24 year old has been sober for seven years. He adds, "I've never had a plan, I'm just going to keep doing what I've been doing and hopefully not drink. I don't ever want to come back to rehab again."
