In a recent interview with interview Fox News, bassist Nikki Sixx talked about his sobriety, which last year he celebrated 20 years of getting sober.
Here’s what the bassist said:
“I love being sober for many reasons. Somebody told me recently, ‘Man, you look pretty good with everything you’ve been through.’ [Laughs] It was a journey. I was six years sober.
”I didn’t quite get it. I mean, I got it, but I slipped and went out one day and then I was four years sober. And then I slipped. I didn’t want to go back and forth.
”I checked myself into rehab 20 years ago because I wanted to get it. And then I wanted to pass that message on. I want them to see what recovery can look like.”
