The Number One Sunday Times Bestseller from Russell Brand.
'This is the age of addiction, a condition so epidemic, so all encompassing and ubiquitous that unless you are fortunate enough to be an extreme case, you probably don't know that you have it.
What unhealthy habits and attachments are holding your life together? Are you unconsciously dependent on food? Bad relationships? A job that doesn't fulfill you? Numb, constant perusal of your phone, looking for what?
My qualification for writing this book is not that I am better than you, it's that I am worse. I am an addict, addicted to drugs, alcohol, sex, money, love and fame.'
The program in Recovery has given Russell Brand freedom from all addictions and it will do the same for you.
This system offers nothing less than liberation from self-centredness, a new perspective, freedom from the illusion of suffering for anyone who is willing to take the necessary steps.
'It feels wrong to say it is an addictive read, given the subject, but it really is. Russell doesn’t just want to save our souls he wants to entertain us on the way.' – Matt Haig, author of Reasons to Stay Alive
'Recovery should be read by the world' – Ruby Wax
A stunning read, one that helped me tremendously. Having already given up drinking and smoking weed I hadn’t thought much for the reasons why I used for twenty years. This provided insight and understanding of the underlying issues and only now do I start feeling free of my addictions and hope for a brighter future.
A truthful and human exploration of the distinction between spirit and physical being
Within this book Russell walks us through the 12 step program providing anecdotal insights and weathered guidance which feels honest and open. A great read, even if you feel you are not currently addicted to a life altering substance, habit or thought, through reading this book you can being to become more aware of your thoughts , be that negative or positive, and the way in which they allow you to interact with the material plane. A very helpful book for myself and hopefully many others.
