Originally written for The Guardian, Russell reads his article - 'My Life Without Drugs'.
Russell Brand has not used drugs for over ten years now. He used to be a man that was heavily addicted to heroin, but has overcome his addiction with complete abstinence. In this talk that he gives for The Guardian, he digs into the root of the problem of drug abuse and what you can do to overcome it. Drug addiction is a problem that affects people of all races, from every inch of the globe, and it is a hard habit to kick. It's hard for people to love people who are addicted to drugs, but the truth is that these people are needing your love and support the most.
Russell goes on to say that the best way to overcoming drug addiction is to take it one day at a time. Looking in the long term management of drug addiction can be frightening for anyone struggling with addiction and may seem impossible to ever overcome, but it most certainly can be done.
The message Russell brings with this article is very powerful and deep. If you know anyone trying to overcome addiction, Russell Brand is a great person to introduce them too because he has been in the hell of addiction and is extremely relate-able to those going through the struggle.
