About this item

In one of the most unique memoirs of addiction ever published, Motley Crue's Nikki Sixx shares mesmerizing diary entries from the year he spiraled out of control in a haze of heroin and cocaine, presented alongside riveting commentary from people who were there at the time, and from Nikki himself.
When Motley Crue 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 those diary entries -- some poetic, some scatterbrained, some bizarre -- and reflects on that time. Joining him are Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Slash, Rick Nielsen, Bob Rock, and a host of ex-managers, ex-lovers, and more.
Brutally honest, utterly riveting, and shockingly 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.

From his day to day living with drugs to insights into how he kicked them, Nikki Sixx bared his soul in The Heroin Diaries. This book is an amazing look into the life of Nikki Sixx during the 80s, when drugs were all the rage among the stars. His diary entries while high on drugs show a whole new side to what we knew of the Motley Crue drug phase. The battle he waged against (and lost to) drugs during that time was so hard to read about, because it made you feel like you were there, feeling it with him. This book made me laugh at times, cry other times, and made me want to go back in time to try to help him the whole time. It was an emotional roller coaster just reading. I can't imagine what it must have been like for him to live it.

If you are a Nikki Sixx/Motley Crue fan you will enjoy this book. I loved it. It was a open and honest look at a year in the life of a drugged out rockstar.
