There’s a fine line between using and not using.

Crawler: ‘Stone Cold Sober Live’
Brilliant song from the 70s, Paul Kossoff of Free-fame who was lost to heroin.

A break up of a relationship with alcohol. (I use this in my relationship work in my role as a counsellor) Paul had an on-off relationship with heroin for 20 years.

Make Poverty History: ‘From Little Things Big Things Grow’
Paul Kelly, Kev Carmody and John Butler sing about poverty amongst indigenous people in Australia. This song reminds me about building your recovery – from little things, big things grow.
