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.

  • Mind blowing

    By HaleyK2020
    The absolute best book I’ve ever read. The most raw, uncut, mentally-stimulating book that’s ever crossed my hands. Sickening, yet beautiful; raunchy yet charming, this book is downright wicked in all the best ways. Finished it in 2 days. It’s one hell of a roller coaster ride and you can’t get off until you finish it. Good luck

    A great read! A lesson in “be careful of what you wish for” and the struggle of exorcising our demons to be truly happy! Kudos to Nikki Sixx for baring his soul and exposing the heartbreak that comes with addiction.

    I’ve never done drugs or even tried them but have loved ones battling. This real life story will help you gain insight on some of the feelings and tribulations a loved one might be feeling when going through addiction. It’s a must read!!!

    I really enjoyed this book. I relate to him so much bc my mother too was abusive and basically gave me to my grandma and then said she took me from her and just the addiction I have. I think it’s one of the Best books. I read it twice. Love Nikki Sixx and his crazy life. Rock n roll and Mötley Crüe forever.
