Songs that got you through and help you through recovery

So everyone knows a song can heal the soul. I am making a playlist for my iPad to get me through my recovery, keep me motivated, and remind me where I was and where I am gonna be. So far on my list ( I have listened to all of these every day since may last pill 4 days ago) 1. Cry out to Jesus by third day - for my spiritual fix. 2. Not afraid by Eminem - makes me wanna take this habit and kick its butt :). 3. The woman I meant to be - keeps me focused on where I am going and 4. Bob Marley " Three little birds" just to lift my spirits.  A very random selection. How about for you?

One that

Kerrie Roberts-Rescue Me

Kinda keeping me thinking and fighting during withdrawals the chorus is below and it was just catchy and applied to me. This can be how the story ends.

Rescue me
Show me who I am
'Cause I can't believe
This is how the story ends

Fight for me
If it's not too late
Help me breathe again
No, this can't be how the story ends

He is one of the guys that that helped teach these guys who you listen to now.

It's actually his 3rd Symphony in E Flat Major. (I had to look it up). You should listen to it sometime. I bet you will like it.

I'm so glad this post is here, cuz music absolutely helped me get through it. Here's a few songs to give anyone inspiration:

"Mr. Rager" by Kid Cudi (Great song when you are just angry at the world, but mostly at yourself. And it really is about a man, Scott Mescudi, who has clearly been through a lot of the same "issues" we are dealing with. It will make you feel ten feet tall)

"Ambition" by Wale (It's about a kid from the ghetto that will do anything to make it out, but it def applies)

"Efflictim" by Kid Cudi (The words speak for themselves. It's a man pondering his own death and missed opportunities to love the people closest to him, and be loved)

Those were the three songs that really got me through and I would recommend them to everyone. I have more, but that's a good start.

I'm standing up, I'ma face my demons
I'm manning up, I'ma hold my ground
I've had enough, now I'm so fed up
Tryin' to put my life back together right now

It was my decision to get clean, I did it for me
Admittedly, I probably did it subliminally for you
So I could come back a brand new me, you helped see me through
And don't even realize what you did, believe me you
