Ozzy Osbourne: Doctors Gave Me Four Times Normal Dose Of Anaesthetic Because I Had Such A High Tolerance For Drugs

Ozzy Osbourne says that doctors had to give him four times the normal dose of anaesthetic during the height of his drug use.

73-year-old Black Sabbath singer recalled the moment a doctor questioned why he ‘wasn’t asleep yet’ when administering the drug before he underwent an operation. 

“I had a procedure when I was doing all this sh*t,” Ozzy recalled during recent interview with Sirius XM (via UK’s Mirror). “The guy putting the stuff in goes, ‘how long have you been doing this music?’ And I said so many years, and kept talking. And he goes, “Why aren’t you asleep yet?”

Ozzy went on to say that he needed four times the typical dose “two full syringes” to put him to sleep.

He also revealed that he spent $700 on legal cannabis from a shop near his home in LA.

“I got it and I thought what the *** have I bought that for? Four ounces? I just had Covid so I can’t smoke anyway. I’d had one of those thoughts ‘that would be good’. But I never smoked one.”

“The thing that keeps me away from it now is I got real with me,” Ozzy added. “One of the main reasons I have embraced my family is because I am not out of my f***ing face any more.”

Ozzy will release new studio album, Patient Number 9, which will be released on September 9.
