Russell’s contribution to the Google+ debate on The War on Drugs
Posted in News, Video
I have also battled drug addiction for many years and now have almost four years clean. I enjoyed hearing your thoughts on alternative approaches to rehabilitation. I agree with your assessment and have been working on a comprehensive plan. I have come up with a plan called The Mustard Seed Restart Program. It starts with the addressing the patients past and the underlying root causes of the addiction and guides the patient from there all the way to career developement and if needed job placement. I would love yo discuss this with you. If you have any interest in this you have my email.
All I can think about is all the things I want you to do to me…….
You need to do a gig in UK very soon….
The juxtaposition of those first two comments is just too much for me.
Russell, I’m a therapist in training and the insights that I have gained from listening to this as well as your interview on WTF podcast are invaluable for helping me understand what it means to be addicted. Thank you so much for sharing.
Me and my mate Adam have just heard news of your upcoming ‘intimate’ London show. As avid listeners of the Radio show, ongoing supporters of the idea of Hong Kong Kicky Boots and two lad’s that are genuinely worried about whether matt is making it on his own with all the potential illnesses in the world… we feel that we would be excellent nominee’s to attend this gig.
Thanks in advance,
Ben and Adam
I would sincerely love to come to your London gig. Never seen you live!
Got all your DVD’s – I loves you so muchly!
Please, please, please say where it’s gonna be – so I can get a ticket!
Glad you are increasing interest in this debate.
On Nov 15th the Insitute of Psychiatry & institute of Ideas will go on to ask ‘how should we deal with legal highs’.
If participating is something that may interest you, please contact me.
Kind regards Jonathan
Ou est la London gig? J’adore Russell!
I savour, cause I discovered just what I used to be looking for. You’ve ended my four day long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a nice day. Bye
I honestly think you are one smart bastard. Likely one of the results of your very interesting life. I think people grow through experience (obviously).
Seeing your clip at Parliament first of all gave me another impression of you. You can also clearly see the difference in perceptions and I think your views on drugs and drug users are incredibly insightful and some hopefully think also very common sense. In short – your a bad-ass, congrats and good luck in getting your message across.
PS I believe I am a person susceptible to addiction and hearing your interpretation on things (with it’s honesty and clarity) has made me want to change things.
And while the chance RB reads this is small, to whoever does, he made an impact on me and I guess that’s worth saying.
WELL SAID!! It was right on point, you did not miss a beat I only wish that this could be apart of meetings for people trying to recover, or somewhere with more exposure to those who are still “suffering” as you put it.
Awsome jab at our governments selfish BS ways of categorizing its people (that they supply) as “The Enemy”, “Addicts” and so on. It was perfectly done.
Personally, I do believe you have a much bigger fondness to the English lnguage than you did with drugs – please keep up the great work. Such a class act you are man! and all done with fun and a little bit of scruff (facial hair) right on!
Everytime I try to find a way to NOT be your fan… bam! you come out with surprises. Peace, love, prayers & MUCH respect!
Russsell you would make the greatest vamipre we have ever seen. The sexiest ever. The funniest ever. Why has your agent failed to look for the best vamp. script? Why?
All ears? Waukisha@gmail.com its all about ideas.

Russell my man (friendly way) Cant tell u enuff how much I appreciate ur standing up speaking up about addictions and the proper solution that is required to combat it. DO NOT STOP (.) STAY FOCUSED KEEP UR HEART STRONG DO NOT GET SIDETRACKED. You are the only person-celebrity that I have heard talk about it and try 2 take charge with bureacracy by being adamant about what is going to BEST cure it. U r speaking for me (family member) and my NateSon 35 who is aggressively IN the disease. We will OVERCOME Russ. Keep up the Faith/Fight. Much love prayers care and Always Hope…N
