143 Songs About Substance Abuse, Addiction and Recovery
Shame, guilt, desire, regret — these are only a few of the emotions people experience when they are dependent on a substance. This anguish has been fuel for thousands of beautiful, moving, raw and intense songs about addiction. For many decades artists have used their lyrics and melodies to tell stories of relationships with drugs and alcohol. Their songs have satisfied the curiosity of the sober and eased the loneliness of those who are struggling with the mental illness. Rather than using subjective rankings to form our list, we thought about which songs most vividly describe the experience of addiction, how the illness can destroy lives and bonds. We looked for tracks that detail the mindset and behavior of someone who is falling into the void of substance abuse or realizing they have a problem Keep in mind that recovery is the other side of the coin and deserves its own list. Use our playlist to sympathize with those afflicted with addiction or remind yourself that millions of others carry the same burden.
Addiction and recovery can both feel very lonely and confusing. Music is a wonderful way to get in touch with your feelings. Sometimes, our emotions become blocked through tumultuous times in our lives. Listening to words spoken in a song that sound a lot like your story about addiction or recovery can bring on emotional healing. Music can heal your soul , lift you up, and inspire you. They offer advice and remind you of the benefits you get for committing to recovery.

About The Author
FlourishAnyway believes there is a playlist for just about any situation and is on a mission to unite and entertain the world through song. Kylee is an aging beauty—long blonde hair, with a mouth like a sailor. She's sneaky smart in the street kind of way and can crack a joke clean or dirty that will have everyone in the room doubled over in stiches. The other week, Kylee headed for Wal-mart on what was supposed to be a quick grocery run. She didn't come back for four days. Actually, she's done that a couple of times. And really, should it be a surprise?
The anniversary of his death. His birthday. These are the dates when I grieve most consciously for my father. I want to think about my father, who I lost more than 11 years ago this year. I want to cry and give myself an opportunity to feel that pain. It is a strange thing to describe to people who are uninitiated with grief. Why would you want to be sad?
