Recovery – Freedom From Our Addictions | Russell Brand

By July 1, 2020January 28th, 2021No Comments

A total masterpiece. Wholly relevant to our time of overwhelm, addiction, egoistic pursuits and selfish me, me, me-ness. Russell Brand opens his heart and eloquent soul to walk us through the 12 Step Programme as initiated in Alcoholics Anonymous. He shares his personal life experiences and realisations in a touching, honest expose of deepest darkest revelations with the clear narrative of teaching throughout. Learning robust addiction squashing tools from a loose tongued, erudite English chap serves to make the programme feel all the more accessible (and the accompanying work sheets per step equally do-able). What I loved about this book most effusively is his ability to create prose from functional self-help. At times it felt like poetry.  Russel’s personal life stories illuminate the premise per step in poignant, credible verbosity. He compels the reader to embrace recovery from addiction day by day.  Applicable to every toxic habit that consumes us from drink to food to social media, I didn’t want the book to end and will read it again and again.

Official Recovery from Addiction by Russell Brand Book Blurb

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.
