There are so many songs that swirl around in my head and emotions I feel when I think about my drinking days and my path to sobriety. Here are a handful that stand out; most revolve around the prison that is alcohol and/or drug use, and the path to recovery. Others simply take me back to old memories during that time of my life. However, there is to this day some music I have a hard time listening to because I would play it so much while drinking, and I feel triggered by it. Those songs/that music have not been included here. This is also far from a thorough list of music about addiction and recovery – these are songs that have spoken to me over the years and I feel that I relate to.
