"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?'"--Provided by publisher.
The twelve steps
Are you a bit fucked?
Could you not be fucked?
Are you, on your own, going to "unfuck" yourself?
Write down all the things that are fucking you up or have ever fucked you up and don't lie, or leave anything out
Honestly tell someone trustworthy about how fucked you are
Well, that's revealed a lot of fucked up patterns. Do you want to stop it? Seriously?
Are you willing to live in a new way that's not at all about you and your previous, fucked up stuff? You have to
Prepare to apologize to everyone for everything affected by your being so fucked up
Now apologize. Unless that would make things worse
Watch out for fucked up thinking and behavior and be honest when it happens
Stay connected to your new perspective
Look at life less selfishly, be nice to everyone, help people if you can
