Recovery: Freedom from Our Addictions

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 BrandWith 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....

Recovery: Freedom from Our Addictions Reviews

  • Lia

    started well, fizzled out at the end.

    I am often interested in social/consumer books about addiction as I work with drug addicts in my role as a pharmacist.

    Russell Brand is undeniably engaging. I really enjoyed his Revolution book from a couple of years ago.

    This started strong, with easy to understand, instantly engaging outlines of the 12-step as favoured by many AA type programmes. I cannot pinpoint what brought it down in rating for me, however I feel towards the end it was Brand's humour and

    Wow. A few months ago my mum told me about this podcast she had started listening to called 'Under the Skin' created and hosted by Russell Brand. I was intrigued by the things she told me about it and so started listening and was captivated by the guests he had on, the topics they discussed and the incredibly honest and vulnerable way he shared parts of his own story. Fast forward a few months and from listening to his podcast I learnt about Russell Brand's newest book Recovery: Freedom from Our ...more

  • Lynne Spreen

    What an amazing and beautiful book. Russell Brand has done an extraordinary good thing for the world. The writing is funny, choppy, scary, elaborate, lush, crude, visceral. Twelve of the chapters correlate to the 12 Steps, and each chapter ends with exercises to help the reader understand how to work the step. I laughed out loud, gritted my teeth, and cried, sometimes within the same paragraph. The greatest lesson of this book is that we are all human, with the same flaws and loveliness. No sens ...more

  • Kate Taylor

    If you are even the slightest bit unhappy or dissatisfied with your life and want to make changes but don't know how, I urge you to read this book. It sets out the 12 Steps programme and how you apply it to your life in order for you to realise and recognise the patterns that you continually make that cause you unhappiness and how you go about re-programming your mind to avoid making them in future. Don't think that this book just applies to the well known "serious" addictions of alcohol, drugs, ...more

  • Juvoni

    Brand lays out a poetic, vulnerable, humble and resilient book on the topic of facing our addictions. Using the lens of his experience dealing with multiple forms of addiction he revisits his journey through the 12-steps program and reframes it for a broader appeal. Acceptance, structure, intention and effort are a necessary part of working towards recovery, "If you don't choose to work a conscious program, you are being worked by an unconscious program.”. Explore what you do to escape, self-soo ...more

  • Desinka

    This was an amazingly enlightening read, or listen, in my case. I loved Russel Brand's narration and thought the book a treasure. Highly recommended!

  • Renee

    **Listened again and upgraded rating from 4 to 5 stars**

    As a person in recovery who did not use a 12-step program for support, I have always thought that 12-step programs were a little too prescriptive and dogmatic to be of use to me. However, I found Russell Brand’s personal spin on the meaning and benefit behind the rules of The Program (i.e. Alcoholics Anonymous) approachable, relatable, and practical. I believe this book (and its free online companion) could help a lot of people in need.

    Thanks for the generous help, Russell!
