The Gifts In Life That Come From Struggles with Nikki Sixx

The Dad Edge Podcast (formerly The Good Dad Project Podcast)

My guest today is Nikki Sixx and I have to tell you, this is by far one of the best interviews and guests I’ve had on the podcast. I  grew up on Motley Crew and no doubt this interview surpassed all my expectations in the content he shared, his authenticity and so much more. You won’t want to miss it.  Nikki Sixx is one of the most respected, recognizable and entrepreneurial icons in the music industry. He founded Motley Crew and has been sober for 21 years. He is incredibly passionate about his craft and wide open about his life in rock and roll.    He was an All-American kid growing up. He loved to hunt, fishing, he chased girls, played football, but underneath of all of it, there was this burning desire for more, and that was music. It’s one of my top 5 interviews, that is all I can say.  For the show notes and exclusive links mentioned in this episode go to https://thedadedge.com/343

Nikki Sixx on How the "Beast" of Stress and Trauma Can Lead to Substance Abuse

Going There with Dr. Mike

This November, Going There is focusing on stories of substance abuse and addiction, and helping us launch this block of themed episodes is Mötley Crüe member Nikki Sixx. The co-founding bassist and songwriter joins Dr. Mike Friedman to share how traumatic life events contributed to his addiction, and how he has been able to maintain sobriety for 20 years. The Grammy Award-nominated musician describes how he experienced multiple stressful and traumatic events in his life including abuse, neglect, and concussions from football – all of which can have an impact on mental and physical health. He opens up about how traumas like these are a beast with multiple tentacles that can tear us down, leaving us vulnerable to substance use. Sixx, who's new book is called The First 21, explains how traumatic events can create emotional chaos and confusion, making it more difficult and complicated to connect with ourselves and achieve emotional well- being. When we feel so confused, empty, and in pain, we look to simple things that make us feel connected. Sometimes it can be something healthy like music, while others it’s substances like drugs or alcohol that temporarily soothe us. Sixx details how understanding what functional benefits he received from using has helped him understand what needs required fulfilling as he worked on recovery. He also uses this same thought process to help others with their own recovery. We must remember that addiction is still a mental illness, and it is crucial that we treat people who struggle with addiction with dignity and respect, seeing them as a whole human being trying to figure out their lives and how substances have played a role in that journey up until this point. That gives us the best balance of empathizing and being compassionate as we help people in their ongoing recovery. So let's go there with Nikki Sixx and listening to his discussion on substance abuse above.
