Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx Says Sobriety Is A Choice And Nobody Has To Stay Sober


Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx recently posted a tweet on his Twitter account and talked about drug and alcohol addiction. He claimed that, unlike the general thought, staying sober is a choice, and it’s a better choice than dying.

Mötley Crüe, mostly known for being the most notorious band out there, spent their peak days enjoying the joys of drugs, sex, and rock and roll. They released nine albums since their formation in 1981, and every album had mind-blowing shows that allowed the crowd to let off some steam. However, the band was mainly under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Even on stage, the band members would have drinking battles against each other and were constantly drunk.

Alcohol and drugs have been as much of the main characters in their lives and the music itself. It made the band challenging to deal with and caused a lot of unwanted situations. Nikki Sixx probably had the worst experiences when it came to substance abuse. He almost died twice and was resurrected after his heart stopped. A few years after the second time, the band decided to go sober.

Sixx has been sober for 20 years now, and he penned his experiences with substance abuse in his book ‘The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star.’ He currently tries to help those who are having a hard time staying sober and making inspirational speeches in talk shows and charities. The bassist recently addressed the problem on Twitter and said that sobriety is a choice and it’s a better choice than dying from drugs or alcohol.

Here is Sixx’s tweet:

“Sobriety is a choice. Nobody has to stay sober. It isn’t always easy but way way better than dying from drug addiction and alcoholism.”
