<p><b>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</b></p><p><i>“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.” </i>—<i>Russell Brand</i></p><p>With 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?"</p><p>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 <i>really </i>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.</p>

Originally published in 1939, when A.A. membership numbered about one hundred, Alcoholics Anonymous has steadily grown in readership. By the time the second edition appeared in 1955, membership had reached over 150,000, and the Big Book, A.A. members’ fond title for their basic text, had reached a distribution of more than 300,000. At the time of the third edition, in March 1976, the worldwide membership of A.A. was estimated at 1 million or more. The basic text, pages 1-164, which had been the foundation of recovery for so many alcoholics remained, and still remains, unchanged. The General Service Conference-approved fourth edition of Alcoholics Anonymous was first printed in October 2001 and has been reprinted 30 times since then. This edition includes 24 new stories that provide contemporary sharing for newcomers seeking recovery from alcoholism in A.A. during the early decades of the 21st century. Sixteen stories are retained from the third edition, including the “Pioneers of A.A.” section, which helps the reader remain linked to A.A.’s historic roots and shows how alcoholics get sober today. More than 30 million copies of the first four editions of the Big Book have been distributed. This is the only A.A.W.S.-authorized e-book version of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Bill W., the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, first penned these essays on A.A.’s Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions for publication in the Grapevine, the Fellowship’s monthly magazine. The Twelve Steps focus on the program of recovery from alcoholism, and the Twelve Traditions deal with issues that affect the unity of the A.A. group and the worldwide Fellowship as a whole. This book clarifies each of the suggested Twelve Steps that constitute the A.A. way of life and each of the Traditions that deal with how groups function to carry the message of recovery of alcoholism to the still-suffering alcoholic. Originally published in 1952, this classic book is used by A.A. members and groups around the world. This is the only A.A.W.S.-authorized e-book version of Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions.

Millions of people worry that drinking is affecting their health, yet are unwilling to seek change because of the misery and stigma associated with alcoholism and recovery. They fear drinking less will be boring, involving deprivation, difficulty and significant lifestyle changes.<br /><br />This Naked Mind offers a new solution. Packed with surprising insight into the reasons we drink, it will open your eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture. Annie Grace brilliantly weaves psychological, neurological, cultural, social and industry factors with her extraordinarily candid journey resulting in a must read for anyone who drinks. <br /><br />This book, without scare tactics, pain or rules, gives you freedom from alcohol. By addressing causes rather than symptoms it is a permanent solution rather than lifetime struggle. It removes the psychological dependence allowing you to easily drink less (or stop drinking). Annie’s clarity, humor and unique ability to blend original research with riveting storytelling ensures you will thoroughly enjoy the process. <br /><br />In a world defined by ‘never enough’ Annie takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of alcohol and specifically the connection between alcohol and pleasure. She dispels the cultural myth that alcohol is a vital part of life and demonstrates how regaining control over alcohol is not only essential to personal happiness and fulfillment but also to ending the heartache experienced by millions as a result of secondhand drinking. <br /><br />Finally, with perfect clarity, this book opens the door to the life you have been waiting for. <br /><br />Read this book. You’ll be glad you did.<br /><br />This book is also available in Spanish: Esta Mente al Desnudo<br /><br />“As a fan of Jason Vale I was interested to read This Naked Mind. It was so interesting to read more about the science behind addiction and the unconscious mind. I highly recommend this book to anyone, whether they are interested in cutting down or staying alcohol-free. I loved it!” -Sarah L., England<br /><br />“What an amazing book! I thought I could consciously decide to give up alcohol, and now I understand the necessity of informing the unconscious mind and then the cravings just disappear! I have also read and applied the work of Dr. John Sarno and knew the power of the unconscious mind but cannot believe how effective the book was for me. Thank you!” -Theresa G., NC<br /><br />“I loved this gentle, down-to-earth explanation of problems with alcohol use, and the clear, structured way to challenge your thinking and behaviors around drinking. It helped me pass from shame and guilt into real and positive action.” -Elizabeth R., Australia<br /><br />"This Naked Mind brought clarity and focus on my drinking and 10-year struggle with sobriety that I had never paused to examine. Annie methodically brings the reader along a logical path of discovery. I felt she was speaking directly to me and that she knows exactly where I am mentally and physically. I continue to return to certain passages for reaffirmation. I highly recommend the excellent book to anyone seeking a refreshing approach to seeing alcohol with eyes wide open.” -Sam G., Australia<br /><br />“Reading This Naked Mind has been nothing short of a miracle. It has helped me to see alcohol for what it is and ended a 25-year cycle of binge drinking. I have not had a single craving since reading it, which is unheard of for me. I don’t feel the need to avoid temptation, because there isn’t any! A must read for anyone who wants to take control of their drinking but doesn’t want a lifetime of struggle.” -Kay W., United Kingdom<br /><br />“Annie’s book exposes the false notion that alcohol is essential for an interesting and happy life. The real gem in Annie’s book is the idea that changing your relationship with alcohol need not be a life of endless suffering and deprivation, that a decision to change can be simple and liberating. This book will change lives.” -Tony S., Australia

The intoxication from a pint of vodka, the electric buzz from snorting cocaine, the warm embrace from shooting heroin—drinking and drugging provides the height of human experience. It’s the promise of heaven on earth, but the hell that follows is a constant hunger, a cold emptiness. The craving to get high is a yearning as intense of any blood-thirsty monster.<br /><br />The best way to tell the truths of addiction is through a story, and dark truths such as these need a piece of horror to do them justice.<br /><br />The stories inside feature the insidious nature of addiction told with compassion yet searing honesty. Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of accidental deaths, and some of the most incredible names in horror fiction have tackled this modern day epidemic. <br /><br />A WICKED THIRST, by Kealan Patrick Burke<br /><br />THE ONE IN THE MIDDLE, by Jessica McHugh<br /><br />EVERYWHERE YOU'VE BLED AND EVERYWHERE YOU WILL, by Max Booth III<br /><br />FIRST, JUST BITE A FINGER, by Johann Thorsson<br /><br />LAST CALL, by John FD Taff<br /><br />TORMENT OF THE FALLEN, by Glen Krisch<br /><br />GARDEN OF FIENDS, by Mark Matthews<br /><br />RETURNS, by Jack Ketchum

When Rebecca Weller’s pounding, dehydrated head woke her at 3am, yet again, she stared at the ceiling, wondering why the hell she kept doing this to herself. At 39 years of age - and a Health Coach, no less - she knew better than to down several bottles of wine per week. Her increasingly dysfunctional relationship with alcohol had to stop, but after decades of social drinking, she was terrified of what that might mean.  <br /><br />How could she live a joyful existence, without alcohol? How would she relax, socialise, or celebrate - without wine?<br /><br />In sheer frustration, on a morning filled with regret and tears, she embarks on a 3-month sobriety experiment that becomes a quest for self-discovery, and ultimately, transforms her entire world.  <br /><br />A heartfelt, moving, and inspiring story for anyone who has ever had to give up something they loved in order to get what they truly wanted.<br /><br />A Happier Hour is a memoir that moves beyond addiction, giving a behind-the-scenes look into what it takes to get (and stay) sober in a culture that celebrates alcohol.
