London: Ozzy Osbourne has revealed that he still suffers from the side-effects of drug abuse.

The former Black Sabbath frontman, who battled drink and drug addiction for a major part of his career, admitted he often experiences "wobblers" brought on by the LSD he took during his wild days.

"LSD is a great time until it isn`t. One minute you`re running down Miami Beach with a foam finger on your head, the next you`re sticking a gun in your best friend`s face," he said in his latest column in Rolling Stone magazine.

"I still get the after-effects of LSD to this day - I call them my wobblers. In a flash, every little problem freaks me out and becomes the end of the world."

The 62-year-old rocker - who has three children with wife Sharon Osbourne and another three kids from his marriage to Thelma Riley - also admitted his drug addictions nearly killed him.

"With the drugs, it nearly killed me on a daily basis - I did a lot of heavy drug taking for a long time and I survived it by the grace of God. You might not be as lucky as me - I`m living on borrowed time," said Osbourne.
