    Hi! Thank you! But I'm on my 249th post, so I've been in the family for quite a while now, :)

    This is one of the best songs about addiction and recovery that I've heard. The lyrics are profound to me:

    I try to run, I try to hide
    From the voice that couldn't satisfy
    that was me, always needing more
    letting go of all I had before

    Cuz' it feels like the end
    a wound that I can't mend
    I just can't fight any longer

    You waited till I sobered
    you came when you knew that the day was over
    didn't even want to be found

    but you chased me down and broke in
    just when I was done believing
    spun me 'round so close
    now I can feel you breathing
    sunlight burns inside
    and I feel so alive
    help me now, tell me how
    how can this last forever?

    Here's another one from RED that's pretty fitting. The lyrics describe the illusion of addiction--how self-medicating can feel soothing, even though it's the thing that's destroying you. The video is, quite literally, about being in a battle with yourself:

    RED - "DEATH OF ME"
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zj-d4rvuRk8

    I should have seen those signs all around me
    But I was comfortable inside these wounds
    So go ahead and take another piece of me, now
    While we all bow down to you

    You tear me down
    And then you pick me up
    You take it all
    And still it’s not enough
    You try to tell me
    You can heal me
    But I’m still bleeding
    And you’ll be the death of me

    How can you end my affliction
    If you’re the sickness and not the cure?
    Too long I’ve faked this addiction
    Another sacrifice to make us pure

    I won’t forget
    I cannot forget this
    I won’t forget
    I’ll never forget this
    I won’t forget
    I cannot forget this
    I won’t forget
    I’ll never forget this

    You know I can never prove this solution
    You aren’t the one that I thought you were
    And so I learn to embrace this illusion
    The line that separates
    It starts to blur

    I will not forget
    I cannot forget this
    And you’ll be the death of me

    I never listen to music with lyrics. I'm paranoid when it comes to songs, lol. But, I've always listened to scores and soundtracks. Orchestral music just gets my mind off things and makes me more creative. So my Pandora is filled with John Williams, Joe Hisaishi, Jerry Goldsmith, Jeremy Soule, etc. etc.

    Also if you've never researched it before, there's a topic of listening to your music at 432 hz, instead of 440 hz. It's really interesting stuff! Here's some links:

    Great positive uplifting song.

    I sit at home, i’m all alone,
    I don’t know what to do
    Don't wanna see nobody else
    I get so bored with all the news,
    They bring me down again
    I end up talking to myself
    There is a voice inside my head
    It talks to me again and says:
    Wait,
    ‘cos there is a million ways to make my day
    Out on my own
    Wait,
    ‘cos there is a million songs , still left unsung,
    Still to create
    And it’s never too late

    Whatever’s cool with all the fools
    Is not for my own sake
    Don’t wanna ask for no one’s help
    I’ll find the key and let them see
    I do it my own way
    And if they try to break my will

    The voice comes back into my head
    It talks to me again and says:

    Wait,
    ‘cos there is a million ways to make my day
    Out on my own
    Wait,
    ‘cos there is a million songs, still left unsung,
    Still to create
    And it’s never too late

    There’s a way to be free from the dark
    And there’s a way to get out of all the cold
    There’s a way to be safe from it all
    There’s a way, a better way

    There is a voice inside my head
    Just walk the silver line
    Or rather you’d be dead

    Wait,
    ‘cos there is a million ways to make your day
    Out on your own
    Wait,
    ‘cos there is a million songs, still left unsung,
    Still to create
    And it’s never too late

    Falconshield is a bloody genius, and in that song noxus absolutely won for me (other than I go crazy for Noxus/Void champs, I'm just evil >:D )

    But my favourite one is this, goosebumps and epicness all the way!

    Btw, I don' t want to get out of topic, during the abstinence I usually listen to motivating songs, reminding me why I'm doing it and what it takes, or just giving me goosebumps (yes, I listen to many genres)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFO-BvfRrOU [Eminem-Till I collapse]

    Then there is a bunch of "Two Steps From Hell" music

    This is such a creative thread. Music is a love of mine, and to incorporate something I love to help with something that I have an issue with, is very helpful. Thanks for starting this thread and the best of luck to you all!

    I've also made an inspirational, non-sexual playlist and I find it's been keeping me focused. Music is also a huge part of my life so it definitely influences my PMO habits. :)

    Use headphones while lying down. Breathe deeply throughout into your abdomen. You will notice profound changes if you listen to this in entirety several times per week.

    In a dark room lying down, with headphones, breathing deeply :)

    Random 4K UHD nature film with a nice song, I love these nature videos, one a day keeps the urge at bay.

    I also spend time outdoors daily so it is not just these videos to thank for the scarcity of urges these days :)
