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.

1st edition- a well read, 2nd- a awesome audible!

I really dislike reading but I love Nikki Sixx. My brother brought me the book and said "trust me and read it!" I was in my mid 30's and hadn't read a book since high school. I couldn't put the book down and finished it in less than a week.
Who would have known Nikki was going through this? I didn't and I also didn't think anybody could survive with such a crazy lifestyle.
I was estacted when I heard about the 10th anniversary edition and since we have bitchen apps that can read to us now...even better, Nikki can read to me! I might even listen to it again.

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.

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.

Amazing

Love this book. Honest, raw but moreover therapeutic. If you are dealing with any kind of addiction. Read this book. Work with gambling addicts. Recommend to all of them to read this book. So much more insightful than any other book I’ve read on gambling addiction. Addiction is addiction and this is the best insight you’ll ever get into that troubled world.

interesting listen for those in active addiction..

as a struggling heroin/speedball addict in and out of recovery I found the book interesting, inspirational and yet also triggering - it reminded me of what I need to do in terms of seeking and asking for help and keeping up with regular attendance and work in NA (narcotics anonymous), and the importance of honesty - both within myself and with the ppl in my life, esp my family and the recovering addicts within NA. Yet it also made me yearn for the rush of shooting speedballs and the sick fascination and purpose found in all consuming hard drug abuse. And so while having shot up a few big speedballs over the last 2 days I've also reattended NA and plan to throw myself back into step work and speak honestly with my sponsor once I run out of drugs and money tomorrow.
