Nikki Sixx is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his getting sober.
The 62-year-old Motley Crue bassist credited his mental tenacity with helping him live his life without drugs or alcohol.
Earlier today he shared an image revealing he had been sober for 20 years, 240 months, 7,306 days or 175,319 hours.
He wrote: “Some people will try and kick you in the nuts, steal your money, stab you in the back, guaranteed to let you down, sabotage yer life, not believe in you and gossip that you’ll never make a day without drugs or alcohol. And do you know what you’re gonna do? YOU’RE GONNA STAY SOBER ONE DAY AT A TIME. You are the miracle, the one that breaks the addiction chain, the one who is a living amens. The one who has altered your family history. You will live in gratitude for those that never thought you’d stay sober or make it out alive BECAUSE THEY MADE YOU STRONGER and you know how to forgive assholes. And when you see people who are still suffering / treading water or gasping for air, be sure to throw them a life vest. Because we give back now to those that are still afflicted and hope they too pass it on.#SobrietyRocks #20Years.”
