Music has tangible effect on our everyday life. We listen to the kind of music that expresses what we are feeling and where we're going. People in active substance listen to party and music that encourages them to misbehave as a lifestyle choice. Today’s top music, while it is fun, leads us to believe that partying like Lil’ Wayne and associates is a desirable goal. People in recovery listen to more inspirational music that help them feel upbeat and happy.
Recovery Music Is A Healthier Way To Listen
