"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.

A definitive guide to the disease of addiction from an addict who has struggled with heroin, alcohol, sex, fame, food and eBay, it will help anyone who is an addict (or loves an addict) make the first tentative steps into recovery.
Russell Brand gently and humorously recounts his story and shares the advice and wisdom he has gained from his thirteen years of recovery. Brand wants to speak to those suffering along the full spectrum of addiction - from the serious, life-threatening misuse of substances to the more subtle but still troubling crutches, such as getting trapped in unhealthy and destructive relationships to avoid difficult feelings. This is a book for everyone.

He's been addicted to drugs, sex, fame, money and power. Even now as a new father, fourteen and a half years into recovery he still writes about himself in the third person and that can't be healthy.
This is his fourth book. He still performs as a comic and is studying for an MA in Religion in Global Politics. He has two cats, a dog, a wife, a baby, 10 chickens and 60 thousand bees in spite of being vegan curious. He is certain that the material world is an illusion but still keeps licking the walls of the hologram.
