Motley Crue bassist recalls near-fatal overdoses in new holiday message

Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx is sharing a holiday message for fans.

“25 years ago today I had 2 almost fatal drug overdoses that changed my life forever,” writes Sixx on Sunday. “I can’t even see myself these days as that kid who was running head strong into the abyss but i know he taught me how to live when he finally decided to do it for himself. I would of never seen the birth of my 4 beautiful children and had such a wonderful life ( even with its adversity ) if I had not kicked drugs. I cant say it loud enough if you’re into them or considering doing them "DRUGS DON'T WORK". The downside is NEVER pretty.”

“I am extremely grateful to be able to look back over these last 25 years and have all the memories that would of otherwise gone down up flames,” he continues. “Today, I am going over more script material for ‘The Heroin Diaries’ for the broadway play. Life really is a crazy and fun journey isn't it?”

“Have a great holiday season wherever you are.....Live in the moment...”

The Crue will perform a spring tour of Australia with KISS; shows kick off February 28 in Perth.
