MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist and founder Nikki Sixx is celebrating the 21st anniversary of his getting clean and sober.
Earlier today (Saturday, July 2), Nikki, who is now 63, shared a screen shot from an app on his phone which revealed that he had been sober for 21 years, 252 months, 7,671 days or 184,089 hours.
The MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist wrote: “21 years today….The lessons you learn along the way can only be absorbed and put into action by being open minded and staying sober. I’ve also learned what I don’t want in my life. Let go of the past and live in the moment. For those still struggling, I know this isn’t always easy but you will not believe how wonderful your life can and will be by applying yourself to these simple steps. Cutting out poisonous people and being rigorously honest in all your affairs, leading with love and being solution based are some of the tools you will gain. Keep these those close to your heart. Also a good rule of thumb is over 95% of what you worry about ( anxiety) actually -never- happens so learn to let go, relax and enjoy the journey. #SobrietyRocks”
Nikki Sixx detailed his near-fatal drug and alcohol addiction in the best-selling book “The Heroin Diaries” which was released in 2007.
