American heavy metal band ‘Mötley Crüe’ bassist Nikki Sixx described his feelings after twenty years of being sober sharing photos of his daughter on his Instagram.

Nikki Sixx has become a fighter against drug addiction after almost died because of the overdose heroin. Both as a musician and as a writer, he established many projects such as his books named ‘The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star’ and ‘This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography and Life Through the Distorted Lens of Nikki Sixx,’ and his Band ‘Six: A.M.’ 

The band’s debut studio album ‘The Heroin Diaries’ reflects Sixx’s heroin addiction and process of recovery from it. With all of his musical and literary works, he inspires and supports many people who have been trying to get rid of their addiction problem.

Nikki Sixx accepted his addiction and faced it. He recognized the importance of being healthy and having a clear mind and set himself free from his addiction. He has been sober for twenty years.

Here’s what he shared:

“Sunday in the mountains…If you ever question “Why” sobriety should be your number one priority just look around at your life. I’m sure there are 100 solid reasons. I talk about sobriety because it’s important to know it’s cool to be clean and even cooler to kick ass while yer on this damn planet and not to slither and slump through a dull experience. . Make it count. I lost a lot of time. For sure been making up for it for the last 20 years. Living in gratitude sets you free of ego(fear) and demons too. It works if you work it. Have a great day.”
