Not only is this book a comprehensive systematic approach to living a productive, happy, and vibrant life in recovery. It is also a map of how addiction operates in our brain and what to do to over come that.
Tommy Rosen has 25 years free from addiction. He has been my shining light on numerous occasions. I regularly watch his youtube channel for meditation exercises, thought provoking ideas in recovery sciences, and inspiration for my own recovery 2.0
He is a firm believer in how trauma is a main component of addiction. His raw story is inspirational, vulnerable, and an amazing symbol of what it means to thrive in sustainable long term recovery. Not only is he the author of this book but he has also created the worlds largest online information source.
He found the problem with addiction is that when you search for it online it usually leads to online treatment services or a short synopsis of what addiction is according to the DSM 5. There wasn’t anything really substantial.
So he set out to build an online community of world leaders in the recovery realm. A resource where you can find exercises and practices ranging from cleanses, diets, yoga, and meditation. It also has information on how to obtain financial sobriety or treating codependency.
You will find people like Noah Levine, the founder of Refuge Recovery and best selling author of “Refuge Recovery a Buddhist Path to Recovering from Addiction, Darma Punx, and Against the Stream: A Buddhist Manual for Spiritual Revolutionaries, check out the reviews on Amazon for those books here.
Also, Dr. Gabore Mate author of the ” The Realm of The Hungry Ghost” and a physician, and speaker who is one of the foremost thought leaders in the recovery sciences. I speak a little of that book here on my blog. I will be doing reviews of these books in the near future. So please subscribe to my email list for further content.
You will also find in the recovery 2.0 community – Guru prem-kundalini yoga master, and Meadow Davore- author of “Money love” she is a life coach and teaches simple techniques that you can easily master to help you with creating abundance in your life. Such as the four types of spending and how it impacts your bottom line. Great if you have debt, or are living pay check to paycheck. Or you are in an endless cycle of worry, anxiety, and guilt about your financial state.
The book consists of two parts. The first half is about laying the foundation for recovery. The second upgrades your life with simple but effective explanations and techniques on yoga practices, meditation, breathing exercises, and dieting. The things I am covering on my website. Because I know they work.
Uncertainty is one of the number one stressors in the world, and I know that getting sober without the proper guidance or mentoring can be the beginning of a relapse or worse. I found some guidance in the 12 steps but I was always seeking a more advanced systematic approach for my recovery. When I found this book it really did help change my outlook on many things.
Also, if you want to receive more of my content in the future please subscribe to my email list. I will be creating e-books, and videos, also doing a lot of great book reviews, and interviews with other recovery oriented bloggers.
I hope you have a great day, and as Tommy Rosen says. “May the universe put you in the place you want to be, with the people you want to be with, and doing the things that you should be doing.”

Here is a link to some other reviews of Recovery 2.0 on Amazon, where you will find this book and the other ones I mentioned in my article.
And, if you’re a yoga enthusiast or thinking about starting a yoga practice and you’re in recovery then look for “Yoga and the 12 step path” by Kyzcy Hawk, – link here – both of these books will challenge you and introduce you to spiritual paths you might have never known existed. I go by the motto “whatever works” in my recovery.
