Inspirational videos?

I was wondering if anyone had any 'favourite' inspirational videos about addiction or sobriety?

Early in my recovery, I was very fortunate to stumble across a painfully honest monologue by Craig Ferguson and his battle with addiction.

In fact, so moved by his account, I've incorporated one of his sound bytes into my lifes mission statement;

' A lifetime of vigilance.'

BANG! That resonates with me to my very core!

Here's the video and was wondering if there are any other good ones out there.

Rain in my Heart is really good. Watched all 10 segments back to back. On YouTube. Very honest and unflinching. It motivated me, but it may be depressing for some. YMMV
