''I am getting myself into trouble and in Perth it is a very one-degree-of-separation town. I can't continue this way," Black said.
''Once I finished going through divorce and retirement very close together, I just had too much time on my hands.
''The job I had in property development and the work I had at Seven was only about eight hours a week, I just had too much time to think and get on the turps.
''I go to the gym religiously every morning, but by about 1pm all my chores were done and work was done - and I would just open up the fridge and grab a stubby. That is the way it has been for eight months.''
