i think music really helps me through my addiction/recovery,before and even after i fall.Before i have temptation i put on music and get lost in it and my head goes completely blank and my temptation is no more in my head now my head is occupied by the words of the songs.After i have fallen i put on some music and feel at peace i feel calm and happy.The best kind of songs to hear are hymns, hymns are just like prayers and the best thing about a hymn is it fills you up with the spirit and can save you from a big mistake.I can not lie i mostly listen to other music when i fall or before i fall mostly soft rock it gets me in the mood to do good things so tell us how music has affect your addiction/recovery in a positive way>?

Watch Out    
"Just make sure the music you listen to doesn't contain references etc. I love rap/hip-hop but have to watch out because a lot of it contains innuendo."

"@ANONYMOUS i'll be sure to check it out and tell you what i think about it.

@ANONYMOUS your right i love rap and hip hop too but i try not to listen to it because it can have a lot of suggestive things and can fill your head with the negative rather positive things,of course when you feel your about to fall or after you fall.besides that i listen to rap a lot."

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
