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.

Home Run This book really hit home with me. Frequent drug use being a large part of my family, every page tugged on my heart strings a little bit more than the last. If you’re someone out there looking for guidance or a means of providing forgiveness to a loved one, then Nikki Sixx’s Heroine Diaries is an excellent read. Enjoy!

Wow Brutally honest and deeply personal, it’s truly the good, bad and the very ugly. It’s shocking how unglamorous everyday life was for him. Nikki really has a way with words, funny at times, so tragically sad at others. An intriguing inside look at not only his life, but the band and the business in general.
