In one of the most unique memoirs of addiction ever published, Mötley Crüe'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 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 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.

This book spoke a lot to me cause I was an addict for years and didn't know I was. I was also a drunk and hurt everyone around. But my Mum and my Girlfriend stuck with me and never gave up. This book showed me I'm not alone in my struggle to stay clean and sober. I've also learn to let things go for my own good.
For anyone who has been looking for a good book about true events and someone who found themselves this is for you.
Way to go Nikki.
What a great read, wonderful insight into the internal struggle that exists. Nikki is clearly a leader that went to the edge and back and lived to tell about it.
