Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx Feels Uncomfortable When People Forget He’s A Recovering Heroin Addict

Mötley Crüe co-founder, primary songwriter, and bassist, Nikki Sixx revealed that he found it unacceptable when people around him forgot his recovery from addictions from his Twitter account.

As you know, Nikki Sixx had been a near-death experience because of his heroin addiction. Since then, he has become a fighter against drug and alcohol addiction. He wrote these experiences in his autobiography entitled ‘The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star’ in 2007. Also, he formed a side band named Sixx: A.M.

With his side band’s projects, Sixx drew attention to the damages of drug and alcohol addiction and wanted to raise awareness about them. In 2019, the band announced the upcoming four new songs. Recently, the band collaborated with Slash and Corey Taylor for the new single ‘Maybe It’s Time’ on August 22, 2020. It was a charity project to raise funds for the Global Recovery Initiative Foundation.

Along with his different projects, Sixx celebrated his twenty years of sobriety from his Instagram account. He said that recovering from drug addiction must be people’s number one priority to maintain a healthy and peaceful life. Then, on his Twitter account, he reflected his disapproval of people’s getting too drunk around him. According to him, it feels too uncomfortable while he was recovering from drug addiction.

Here’s what he wrote:

“I wonder if people I am around at times that get extremely drunk forget that I am in recovery. I’m a recovering Heroin addict. I don’t ask people not to enjoy a glass but I just don’t think they understand that just because we’re sober we don’t get uncomfortable.

Yup. I mean I am so solid with my sobriety but smashes slurring behavior is so boring.”
