During his thunderous Grammy performance Sunday night, Eminem wore a necklace that featured the Sobriety Circle & Triangle Symbol used by Alcoholics Anonymous.

The equilateral triangle represents the three-part answer - unity, recovery and service - to a three-part disease - physical, mental and spiritual, while the circle represents wholeness or oneness.   Eminem - who took home two Grammys, rap album and rap solo - has dedicated his latest album, Recovery, to addictions he overcame.   In addition to battling alcohol, he has said that at one point, he was taking up to 20 pills a day, including Vicodin, Valium, Ambien and Methadone.    He has credited his children - daughter Hailie Jade and his two adopted daughters, Lainey and Whitney - for his recovery.    "I love them so much and they've helped me through so many things," he told the New York Times last year.   Added the rapper (who sees a rehab counselor once a week): "I think I've calmed down a bit. My overall look on things is a lot more mature than it used to be."
