    Eminem's battles with addiction are well-documented, in the media and in his music. He credits music with being the force that saved his life and helped him to overcome.

    He also is totally self-aware about himself and the scope of addiction in terms of how it factors into society and affects others.

    "I certainly could have taken another path," the "Rap God" told BBC1. "I know that there are so many addicts in this world and people who have problems like that that don't make it. I think that one thing that keeps me pushing forward is the music, and the passion, so I am thankful for that. I think back then it was so big in my head. Let me take this and this, drink this and this and get through it, as opposed to see the people, connect with the crowd and have fun with it."

    We're glad Eminem overcome his addictions. He can inspire others battling the same demons.
