Recovery: Freedom from Our Addictions – Russell Brand
Recovery: Freedom from Our Addictions – With a rare mix of honesty, humor, and compassion, comedian and movie star Russell Brand mines his own wild story and shares the advice and wisdom he has gained through his fourteen years of recovery.
Brand speaks to those suffering along the full spectrum of addiction—from drugs, alcohol, caffeine, and sugar addictions to addictions to work, stress, bad relationships, digital media, and fame. Brand understands that addiction can take many shapes and sizes and how the process of staying clean, sane, and unhooked is a daily activity.
He believes that the question is not “Why are you addicted?” but “What pain is your addiction masking? Why are you running—into the wrong job, the wrong life, the wrong person’s arms?”
Russell has been in all the twelve-step fellowships going, he’s started his own men’s group, he’s a therapy regular and a practiced yogi—and while he’s worked on this material as part of his comedy and previous bestsellers, he’s never before shared the tools that really took him out of it, that keep him clean and clear. Here he provides not only a recovery plan, but an attempt to make sense of the ailing world.
Russell Brand has become a tremendous force in my life, due to his podcasts, interviews and “Revolution” book… This book follows suit, seeming (so far) to be another honest, insightful, humorous, intelligent peek into what it means to be human… Or, i should say to be pure, unblemished Awareness playing out the human dance in our shared reality.
…If by some fluke you read this review, you have truly helped change the trajectory of my path, along with my obsession with the Bhagavad Gita, and Upanishads…and, may i recommend to you the Ashtavakra Gita? (If you have not read).
Russell Brand is an English comedian, actor, radio host, activist, and author of several bestselling books, including the New York Times bestsellers My Booky Wook and Revolution. He has had a number of major film roles including parts in Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek.
