You have no idea. Russell is extremely intelligent and well-spoken/articulate. Read his autobiographies. The man is a wordsmith. Most BXers would probably have a hard time with understanding them though... Especially the idiots saying addiction is not a disease.

Cancer is disease

Sucking a glass d!ck for a crack high isn't a disease,it's a choice one has made.
You know you're my guy--but addiction is a disease. I hope one day you open your mind and realize how serious of a disease it is.

addiction is a disease - most people who are addicts come from a background of drug addiction in their families

soon as they try drugs its an everlasting battle to not use everyday, all day, od - whatever.

i try to regulate my alcohol use for this reason because my dad has been smokin weed since he was 9 years old + takes pain medication from complications he's had from smoking cigarettes, getting cancer, beating cancer, having pancreatitis.

who knows what will happen tho

just think its ignorant to say its someones choice to be on drugs more time then they aren't on drugs.

Russell Brand is an intelligent dude and it will surprise a lot of people on BX that he actually had a column for the Guardian newspaper writing about football and it was a great column, it shocked me how much he knew about sports.

word i've seen mad people try to say its not but havent really seen a legit argument. herpes is a disease. cancer is a disease. addiction is a character flaw.

and i suppose mental illnesses don't exist because you can't catch them from a toilet seat, either?



spare yourself the expense of looking ignorant, please!
another example of our medical gatekeepers exploiting - or exhibiting - subjectivity.

as long as you can slap a label on a "condition", then comes insurance, perscriptions, etc.

of course some things are black and white, such as down syndrome, autism, etc.

but adhd? thats not an illness. thats not a disease.

read a sociology textbook.

Disease, according to the American Heritage dictionary, is defined as follows...

A pathological condition of a part, organ, or system of an organism resulting from various causes, such as infection, genetic defect, or environmental stress, and characterized by an identifiable group of signs or symptoms.

My thoughts exactly.

It was labeled as a so called addiction in order for someone not having to take responsibility for their own actions.

disgusting if you ask me..

Now shut the fu*k up as you clearly are talking out your a.ss, and do some research before making asinine statements, what about being Bi-polar ? My cousin gets SSI due to being Bi-polar don't think the state just hands ssi checks out.

If you were being sarcastic, please say so.

Read all of it, good read full of truth. Deserves props 100%.

I've always enjoyed Russell Brand's writing and interviews.. He was a drug addict, doing primarily speedballs (freebasing crack and heroin off foil) and he got fired on the 2nd day of his MTV job for dressing up as Osama Bin Laden and going to Ground Zero like the next day after it happened (he was high).. Nonetheless, he has quite a history and one of my favorite personalities.. He's intelligent and articulate, and be pullin' all the bi*ches. (won shagger of the year award for 2-3 yrs)

RIP Amy, may you rest in peace. Drug addiction is a disease

I guess lung cancer isn't a disease since people choose to smoke.
cigarettes is legal
