THIS HELPS FOR DEPRESSION!!!

Ok, this may sound stupid, especially for people in there 30's or 40's but it sure works for me. There is a rock band out, very popular called Three Days Grace. The story goes: Adam Gontier, the lead singer of the band went through major drug problems (oxycontin) during his 1st album. He realized his problem and checked himself into Rehab. During rehab he wrote lyrics for his w/d and depression he was going through to put into their newest albums. These songs include : "Pain" , "Over and Over", "Never too late", "Animal I have become","On my Own", "Riot",  "Time of Dying" "Gone for Ever" and even more. He sings about overcoming this addiction. This helps me in trouble times. I deeply encourage people, even those not into rock to listen to this. Simply go to Youtube.com and search the songs I named and even watch the videos. It helps me so much and like this site, lets me know that theyre are others going through the same thing. I MEAN IT!!! Check em out, you'll be impressed. If you really like the music than search "Behind the Pain" which is a documentary in 4 parts, which you can view all, that talk about his struggle with drugs. Truly inspirational and it helps!!!

do you like shine down?  if so...listen to their remake of "simple man" originally done by lynyrd skynyrd......also try the live versions...the guy CAN SING!!! check out the others i mentioned...if you like save me...i am confident you'll like the others...they are all extremely helpful when trying to stay away from drugs, even though they are about the pain of addiction...somehow they are all helpful to me....
also "broken" by seether featuring Amy Lee of evenessance..."bring me to life"  evenessance (sp?)...   i am sure they all pertain to addiction, but i am not 100% positive of this, you'll enjoy, i am confident...

Yeah Save me definitely is about addiction. Actually its about how he's addicted to "chasing the dragon" where heroin addicts put heroin on a spoon, heat it up, then inhale the fumes, hence " I gotta candle..I got a spoon" . He then loses all his money so he states " I live in a hallway with no doors, and no rooms". Then gets addicted to Methadone after trying to quit heroin and sings "Someone save me from these pills".

I like Three Days Grace because One-x (Their latest album) was inspired and written about his addictions. " Animal I have become" , especially the video shows his addiction. But every other song is about his addiction as well. I encourage everyone to listen/watch this via youtube.com

Forgot to mention Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are great to listen to also, they don't have to do with addiction necessarily (except his last dance with Mary Jane ; )

I just think his music is peaceful music to listen to...period

No ! No! No! not meaning to call you old. I just wasn't sure if you guys were into modern-day rock or not. Thats cool if you are, cool if your aren't!

My favorite music is by far Classic Rock. For a twenty year old I think I could say I listen and know a bit about it.

But I guess I really just like all music, especially talented and meaningful music!
