Wow - not a single post on having Nikki Sixx in studio this morning; although I didn't hear the entire thing, what I did hear was interesting enough for me to consider buying his book; gotta be one helluva tale.

The interview was O-K...not great...far better than some of the other train wrecks we have heard (2 coreys comes to mind). He had some good points but I kind of wished lil Jimmy had Uncle Ted come in and tell him...let un-cle ted tell ya about drugs, un-cle ted says drugs r bad un-cle ted is glad you cleaned up.....we get it...you're reformed.

It did sound like Louis CK, that's for sure.

And glad to see we're all going out to buy the book - maybe more interviews with washed up wrestlers would be more gooder... :yuck2:

I agree, I post my months sober on this website and will do it untill I have a year, then yearly anniversary's, and it's just for somebody that may see it and get some sort of inspiration, not for myself. When you are in the public eye you DO NOT speak recovery, you might say a little something about how well things are going and how you did it, five minutes max then end it. That's a personal thing and it's also not something to discuss, not very "recovery," oriented, in fact it goes against the principles of the program.

There are so many people that are in the same boat and don't discuss it on and on. You all know Norton doesn't do drugs or drink but the only time I have heard him discuss actual recover is years ago when the retarded duo Laverne and Shirley were on, and even then he just kind of threw something out there, a bit of advice that only somebody in the know would really pick up on and say "ooohhhhhh, he is sober and know's."

anyway that's my two cents good day :icon_mrgr

besides you all wan't to read a book on a true junkie who is reformed check out "scar tissue" by Anthony Keides

I agree. It was an ok interview. nothing particularly amazing or noteworthy. And I like the trainwreck interviews more than mediocre interviews.

I actually thought it was a good, entertaining and informative segment.

I also disagree that "you don't talk recovery if you're in the public eye"

What?

That's when you have the power to actually make a difference.

I applaud Nikki Sixx - not only for getting his own shit together - but for working with the Covenant House to help others.

Jimmy doesn't hide his "recovery stories" at all. Read his book. Its full of them.

Jay Mohr has spoken about it too.

There's no need to be "closeted" about it.

As long as you're not beating other people who are just having a good time, over the head with it.

Nikki said - it just doesn't work for him. That's what I say, and that's the correct attitude to have.

point taken, and the DOESN"T WORK FOR HIM, was what I had a problem with but that's not my problem, and it's a fact of life. By no means should it be not discussed, i guess im too touchy on the subject right now at this point in life.

what is there to know about a rock star hooked on Heroine? Isn't he just one of thousands? Whoever buys this fucking book is supporting his future habit and a bigger douche than he is!!

I want my rockstars on heroin. Anyone
that buys a concert ticket or an album is supporting their habits. I have no problem with that. I wish John Mayer would start shooting up, maybe his music wouldn't sound so boring to me. "Fathers be good to your daughters" would be "father's lock up your daughters".

As you get more time under your belt, you'll become more and more comfortable with discussing it. While I'm not in recovery for drugs or alcohol, there's a stigma attached to mental illness as well. When I was first diagnoses bi-polar (in 1995), I was afraid to tell anyone except for those in my 12-Step program (Emotions Anonymous). Who wants to get the label of being "crazy"

As the years have gone on, I'm much more comfortable with who I am and will openly discuss it with people. Not that I walk up to people and say 'Hi I'm Kris and I'm a manic depressive', but I also don't hide it either.

Same as you, I hope that I'm an inspiration to people. I've come a long way from where I was and if my story gives hope to others, especially the newly diagnosed, then hooray for me.

Keep up the great work - whether you want to believe it or not, you can also be an inspiration to those who are not in recovery.

I could care less about those guys too, as I haven't been into wrestling for years. But those interviews made for great radio. To me they wanted to and enjoyed their time on the air, and "brought something to the table".

I get today was one of those book tour stops, that's fine, that's bussiness. The boys played it right, as they always do. If he was to go over to xm and it dragged out that would have really been bad. I hear he sucked on hoohoo the other day too.

I was also afraid to share with people my problem for a long time..I was diagnosed in 1995 with Severe Clinical Depression. I almost took my own life that year. After I found out that it was a chemical imbalance and was put on the proper medication I am a much better person..counselling helps and a good network of friends and family helps too. Bottom line it is ALWAYS inspiring to hear positive stories no matter how trivial they may seem....so bravo to you both..:)
