Russell Brand's new book: 'Recovery'

Russell Brand's new book: Recovery
This is actually Russell. Thanks for giving me your personal email address - I hate getting spammy-feeling emails. It's like someone putting their hand down the back of my trunks. "Unsubscribe"! But this is me and I want you to know I've written this book about addiction - not just to drink and drugs but to everything. My idea is that we are living in an age of addiction, that we have been taught to believe that consuming - anything from hair gel to heroin - can somehow make us better. 
 
This book is in a way my life's work and I feel proud of it and hopeful about it.
So yeah. This book could be useful to anyone who is affected by addiction, anywhere on the scale
Thanks for your email address. ❤

Love
Russell

‘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.’

This is the age of addiction. Obvious addictions like drugs and alcohol, right through to socially acceptable chemicals such as caffeine and, all the way to invisible and often endorsed addictions like work, stress, bad relationships and
digital media.

We are facing an epidemic so all-encompassing that many of us don’t even realise we are in its grasp.
Recovery is a self-help book for everyone that will change your life. Offering a definitive guide to addiction from someone who has struggled with heroin, alcohol, sex, fame, food and staring at their phone, as if the answer is going to come from there… This important new book will help anyone who is an addict (or loves an addict) move towards recovery.

With a powerful mix of honesty, humour and compassion, Russell Brand tells his intimate yet universal story and shares the practical advice and wisdom he has been taught through his fourteen and a half years of recovery. He speaks to those suffering along the full spectrum of addiction― from serious, life-threatening misuse of substances, to the subtler habits we use to hold our lives together, like food, technology or unhealthy relationships.

Russell understands that addiction is amorphous and migratory. This book asks and addresses; ‘What pain is your addiction masking? Why are you running―into the wrong job, the wrong life, the wrong relationship?’ and most importantly ‘When are you going to recover the person you were born to be?’

Within the book Russell explores how the process of staying clean and connected is a daily process. He shares the practical toolkit that he uses himself, and offers a recovery plan to anyone who believes their life could be better.

Recovery is published on 21 September.
