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.

So-So

Decent book and can be very entertaining at parts, but the female narrator's voice was painful to listen to, especially when she pretended to cry. I'd rather listen to nails being run down a chalkboard.

Great to hear Nikki Sixx read his story.

This book will help anyone struggling with any form of drug addiction. The best book I have ever read on the subject. I had told my teens parts of the story. They won't be trying drugs any time soon.

its what you expect

its what i thought it would be however....i cant say i enjoyed that parts played by othet people. what would have had more impact on this book is getting tommy, vince, mick to voice there parts instead of someone kinda sounding like them. parts with lemmy i understand unfortunately he isnt here to be able to do it but im sure you get the picture. it somewhat feels lile the unofficial version that you purchased at the budget shop!
