This is a pretty powerful poem about the way we look at things. I haven’t been around on my blog much lately. You can find out why here. In that post, you’ll also learn my 5 golden rules for getting through really tough times.
I am very excited to announce that my article 6 Secrets to Moving On From Serious Struggles has been named the second most popular article OF ALL TIME on the Tiny Buddha website in the category of ‘Overcoming Negative Emotions’, and in the top 100 articles on the astoundingly popular personal development site EVER in any category.
I say this not to blow my own trumpet (well, a teeny tiny bit), but to show what is achievable no matter how far back you have to come from. I’m an ex-alkie, ex-self-harming, ex-bulimic, ex-agoraphobic, ex-social phobic, ex-depressive, ex-borderline…There wasn’t much I didn’t have to be honest.
Read the article to get the whole picture. You CAN achieve success no matter what you’ve been through. And you can help others afterwards 🙂
My aim has always been to help as many people as possible after overcoming the majority of my own struggles. I do that mainly by working 1:1 with people and writing books. But countless people have told me the free videos I make and the articles I write have changed or improved their lives.
It’s quite amazing to go from a semi-homeless alkie to someone that is now able to provide help and inspiration to millions of others around the world.
I’m very grateful that Andrew Walton of Cracking the Happiness Code notified me that I was placed in the Top 2 and Top 100 positions on Tiny Buddha; and I’m grateful to everyone who read and shared my article too.
Remember, as the article says, whatever struggles you’re going through, there is always an answer. And when you find it, there’s nothing better than using your experience to help others 🙂
It’s the moment I have been asked about over and over again since “The Happy Addict” was published last summer. “When, oh, when can I buy your brill book on Kindle?!” Well fret no more recovery fans, “The Happy Addict: How to Be Happy in Recovery from Alcoholism or Drug Addiction” has newly been released on Kindle, and is available from all the Amazon sites worldwide, and on Smashwords. If you haven’t read my latest book on rebuilding your life after addiction, why not? It’s got great reviews, and can help you to develop healthier, happier ways of thinking so you can avoid relapse and have a wonderful life after addiction.
It’s essential reading for people who want to have a full and complete recovery from addiction. “The Happy Addict” can teach you better ways of dealing with problems and coping with life, rather than using substances. It will also inspire you to look at sobriety in a new and empowering way, and to become a happier person. What’s not to like?!
Anyway, don’t take my word for it. Here’s what Addiction Treatment Magazine has to say about the book: “Dive right into chapter one to find yourself turning the pages almost as fast as your eyes can devour the contents. It’s that good…This is a fine book by a really happy addict in recovery. Burgess has a wealth of good suggestions, common-sense and practical exercises and should be an inspiration to many who are now or will be in recovery from alcoholism or drug addiction (or both).”
You can buy The Happy Addict on Amazon UK, at Amazon.com, and on Smashwords now. Even better, if you already bought the paperback version through Amazon, you should be offered a special discount on the Kindle version, too. Hurray and Hoorah!
Yes, that is Russell Brand with my book. And no, you can’t get him on Kindle (as far as I’m aware)…

I want people to understand just how empowering and inspiring getting therapy, and sorting out your life, can be. I made a very short YouTube channel trailer, which will hopefully inspire you. Visit my channel for advice and help with dealing with the tough stuff in life.
