Inhalt
The British comedian, radio host and best-selling author of My Booky Wook shares the story of his personal struggles with addictions ranging from drugs and alcohol to food and fame, offering compassionate advice about the programs that most helped him. / / The British comedian and radio host shares the story of his personal struggles with addictions ranging from drugs and alcohol to food and fame, offering compassionate advice about the programs that most helped him. / / 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.” â€" 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 fourteen years of recovery. Brand speaks to those suffering along the full spectrum of addictionâ€"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 runningâ€"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 yogiâ€"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. / /
