      One. Day. At. A. Time!

      Had no clue Russell Brand was sober, I have been curious recently of who else within the world of entertainment is known for being sober...?

      Here my research has only begun.

      Russell Brand nails addiction “Drugs and alcohol are not my problem, reality is my problem, drugs and alcohol are my solution.”

      It's always better to search for a solution which not only helps us but it's useful for others too. Struggling life as an alcoholic & drug addict people needs genuine treatment.

      If you regard alcoholics and drug addicts not as bad people but as sick people then we can help them to get better.

      It could sound simple but it's not.

      Don't pick up a drink or drug, one day at a time.

      The mentality and behavior of drug addicts and alcoholics are wholly irrational until you understand that they are completely powerless over their addiction and unless they have structured help they have no hope.
