Eminem Clean and Sober

Before his overdose in 2007, Eminem couldn’t keep track of how many pills he was taking. He claimed his tolerance to drugs such as Vicodin, Valium, Ambien, and Methadone was increasingly high. After surviving the overdose in December of 2007, Eminem continued using drugs which led to a relapse only a month after. After his second overdose, Eminem decided he did not want live the life he was leading. He also recognized that he had a problem. This was something that came very hard for the rapper. Eminem did not want to believe that there was something he didn’t have control of. However, his love for his children, and desire to be happy was enough of a reason for him to seek treatment.

Eminem’s addiction seemed to consume his entire life. He wrote the albums, “Encore” and “Relapse” while on drugs. He would listen to his earlier albums such as, “The Marshall Mathers LP” and ask himself why his music doesn’t feel and sound like that anymore.

Eminem’s latest album, “Recovery” was both a struggle and a triumph. Em recorded the album in his hometown studio, built to combat his reclusive habits during addiction. The artist was able to record meaningful songs with a clear mind in sobriety. Eminem focused some of his songs on inspiring listeners. This is a drastic change from his records, which drew media attention for bashing celebrities and being crude.

Now, Eminem is leading a meaningful life without drugs and alcohol. He continues his treatment by seeing a therapist once a week. All in all, Eminem believes his addiction has helped him grow as a person. His favorite new motto is, “one day at a time”.
