Description

This program is read by the author.

A guide to all kinds of addiction from a star who has struggled with heroin, alcohol, sex, fame, food, and eBay, that will help addicts and their loved ones make the first steps into recovery.

"This manual for self-realization comes not from a mountain but from the mud.... My qualification is not that I am better than you but I am worse." (Russell Brand)

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 14 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 12-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 best sellers, 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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

This book is for everyone!

Whether you do or do not think you have an addiction - read this book! Because this is for everyone. This is for those who seek balance but are defeated at the end of each day wishing they could just control something or change something so they could feel good. This book is for those who believe they are missing something. Ok I'll quit raving.

In addition to above - it is well written. And who better than Russell Brand to read his own book? It was a pleasure to listen to - I say as I am going to listen to it again.

The 12 steps with guts, brains, heat and soul.

The has to be the best 12 step book I have ever read and, in 35 years of active AA recovery, that is quite a few. Mr. Brand is brutally honest and sincere to a fault. It is so articulately written, that, at times, it reads like a poem. There are many fine stories. wonderful metaphors, funny interludes, and interesting allegories. He reads it as he has lived it and it is a gem.

For anyone who is serious about their recovery buy this book and listen to it more than a few times. Then print out the 12 step notes from his web site and go to work. You will be richly rewarded.

Brutally honest sobriety

Russell used a 12 step program, as have I, to change his life. This book seems to be written to assist people, perhaps skeptics more than anyone, to see what it really is, to remove people’s preconceptions, and encourage the suffering that there is another way to live without their present pain.

This is true. My own experience echos much of this book, and at no point did I find the author going off-message or self-aggrandizing. The fact is, as Russell repeats, addictions to whatever (alcohol, sex, drugs, food, self-harm, etc) are not the problem, but rather a symptom and expression of something deeper. 12 step programs, WHEN FOLLOWED, work amazingly well to get to the root of these issues and free people from suffering, which in turn frees them from their addictive behaviors that result from them.

Audiobook is great, read by Russel with his accent, and accentuation. If you need help, start here, it works.

equal parts heart break and hilarity

incredibly well-written. Brilliant breakdown of the concept of 12 step and ALL the myriad ways it can be applied to any problem one faces. Russell is so brilliant, fiercely compassionate and clearly dedicated to being of help to his fellow man
The final chapter on the birth of his daughter left me in tears. Spellbinding.
