Still a Teenager –
July 3, 2020 – Nikki Sixx had previously struggled with substance abuse, while even overdosing from heroin in 1987. Since that moment in time, he has been active in a recovery program, noting that it’s a definite credit to transforming his life.
“First thing I did and continue to do is cut toxic people outta my life, then comes the first step and then freedom (if you work it). Even non addicts could use the 12 step program to better their lives,” he further details.
“To me it’s a life program. I am a better man, father, husband, friend, band mate and creative spirit because of this program.”
In a prior celebration of sobriety, in 2013, Sixx wrote that “By letting go of self and ego, working a program that connects you to a higher power and giving back to those still struggling are just some of the important things you learn through sobriety.”
