Publisher's Summary

In honor of the 10-year anniversary of The Heroin Diaries, Nikki Sixx's definitive and best-selling memoir on drug addiction is now available on audio for the first time, read by Nikki Sixx! This shocking, gripping, and at times darkly hilarious memoir explores Nikki's yearlong war with a vicious heroin addiction. Now more than ever, with opioid addiction ravaging our country and rising by 20 percent in the past year alone, Nikki's story of both his descent into drug-addled decay and subsequent recovery and transition into a rehabilitation advocate is now more relevant than ever.

When Mötley Crüe was at the height of its fame, there wasn't any drug Nikki Sixx wouldn't do. He spent days - sometimes alone, sometimes with other addicts, friends, and lovers - in a coke and heroin-fueled daze.

The highs were high, and Nikki's journal entries reveal some euphoria and joy. But the lows were lower, often ending with Nikki in his closet, surrounded by drug paraphernalia and wrapped in paranoid delusions.

Here, Nikki shares the diary entries - some poetic, some scatterbrained, some bizarre - of those dark times.

Brutally honest, utterly riveting, and surprisingly moving, The Heroin Diaries follows Nikki during the year he plunged to rock bottom - and his courageous decision to pick himself up and start living again.

    "What can I say..."

    ...but wonderful! I had already read the original but the audio brings those words to life when read by Nikki himself. Plenty of new material too. The epilogue was really moving on so many levels: his intelligence, his determination, his search to contribute and not least his rallying cry for the true rock star in an age of blah, blah, blah (and that’s the sober Nikki talking). I’d say this would appeal to those who maybe aren’t Sixx fans sufficiently to want to read the book too. The male voice actor who did the other male characters was great: his Tommy, Vince and Slash were uncannily good. His English accents, hmm, okay! The female was pretty awful: a strange, shrill, nasal delivery that barely changed person to person. The one thing that I didn’t like was her delivery.

    "What a life!"

    While I have always loved Motley Crue, it is hard to believe that Nikki could come up with the great lyrics and record albums while completely wasted. Being an addict, although not drugs or alcohol and suffering from depression, this book made me look at my life through a different lens. I almost gave up my photography, but now I am going to continue. Thanks Sicky Nixx for showing me the way to wanting a better life. Hopefully one day our path will cross.

    "Great Book! "

    Nikki Sixx bares his soul in this book. He clawed his way back from certain death, and actually died while doing it. Much respect.

    "SEX, DRUGS, & ROCK n ROLL boring?"

    Who would have thought this book would be so boring!?! Nikki repeats himself so much! Every day and night sounded the same to me. He did drugs, cleaned up, played gigs, did drugs, had sex, cleaned up, toured, fought with his bandmates. Pretty ho-hum.

    "amazing, raw and truth."

    This book was amazing. I have been a Crue fan since they started. They were rock and roll lifestyle and never apologized for it. It's amazing the shit we walk through in life to make it to the other side. I believe Nikki Sixx has walked in deeper shit than most and it's refreshing and gives hope to many that you can make it out alive. It might not be tomorrow but one day will be their day to say enough and start walking to better days. I remember buying this book for a friend who just went into rehab for heroin in 2013. I never read the book at that time but I hoped it would help him. After reading it now, I can tell he never truly read it. It wasn't the fix he wanted.
    No punches held back from anyone in the book and loved that Nikki read it himself. You were more connected to the book. Thank you Nikki Sixx for surviving and alive to tell the tale to help, education and give us your side of the rock star life of a band I grew up with singing every word to this day when I hear one of your songs. Namaste , Jesse Bidwell

    "Amazing"

    I have never listened to Motley Crue. Wasn't a fan. But I have to say, I am now. Not of the group, but of Nikki. What an amazing story. What an amazing will to live. I was so completely immersed in this book, that when I had to stop listening for wharever reason, I had to come back to reality, realizing I wasn't the one who was the addicted. I wasn't the one locked in the closet. This is one of the best books I've read.

    "Mind blowing! Eye Opening! Inspiring!"

    When you think you have hit bottom, listen to Nikki tell his story. Then you realize your rock bottom isn't even close to the bottom. He gives you a glimpse of how deep you can go, and that you can swim back to the top if you can find the will to do so. If you are an addict, you can find hope in his story to turn things around. If you are not, this book will keep you from doing it. I thank you Nikki for allowing us this glimpse into your struggles and to use it for the greater good to help others!
