This rule applies to our everyday life too. Taking care and focusing on yourself can prevent many health problems, may they be physical or mental. So if you are ready to start your fantastic self-care journey, then the perfect first step for you is to read The Self-Care Solution. It will become your no-shame guide to happiness and well-being.

Recovery: Freedom From Our Addictions by Russell Brand

Back in the 2000s, Russell Brand had a lifestyle of a guy any mom would forbid her daughter from dating. His substance use was known to everyone as the media widely covered it during that period. But that was long ago. Now the famous actor and comedian is a patron of the Focus 12 drug treatment program and the bestselling author of Recovery.

So if you want to make sure you have none or you eager to find out how to get rid of them, then start reading now!
