Recovery: Freedom From Our Addictions
About this deal
It is a fantastic medley of honesty, humor, and compassion with eye opening perspective that invites the reader to observe any patterns of habits in their own behavior that may be unhealthy. It’s not just about abstaining from a substance or behavior but about finding a deeper purpose or connection. I've never been a huge fan of Russell Brand, but even before reading this I thought it was pretty fair to say he's someone who just might have something to offer on the subject of addiction.

I don't think there was anything i didn't know, but it had the things i love from self help books, plus the things i can tolerate from mystical books, and the things i like about new atheism, and some other stuff all in one place, organized and beautifully put. The book was, admittedly, a bit too spiritual for me, but in saying that, I completely understand why it had to be. Per the National Child Traumatic Stress Network, 1 out of 4 American children suffer at least one Adverse Childhood Event.I strongly recommend listening to it on audio book, to experience the brilliant madness of the author in real time narration. I will add that my own experience (and those I have been around) have included variable results with them. While those struggling with addiction can greatly benefit, the book’s insights are universal, making it a valuable read for anyone seeking personal growth and transformation.

By detailing how the Steps helped him recover and stay clean for so many years, he does more than inspire others.All too often people try to fall back on their own resources to pull them through, maybe out of pride or fear of being a burden. Well then your plan is not working and you are clearly unable to help yourself and the only hope for you is to adopt this plan and be open to spirituality and believe in a higher power - but you need a mentor and a 12 step group for this.
