Mike Tyson admits to lying about his sobriety, saying he's a "vicious alcoholic" who is on the verge of dying.

Damn. . . This is sad. I hope he can get himself together. He's a really cool guy regardless of his past. Also he nearly killed Don King so he gets cool points in my book!

That's really unfortunate.
He says he's six days sober/drug free. Hopefully he can keep clean and everything. Would hate to see Iron Mike die young.
I wouldn't have guessed he is a "vicious alcoholic" seeing as he's been doing a lot of stuff like Movies, TV shows, appearances, etc. lately. You think someone would have said something.

Have you seen The Roast of Charlie Sheen?

Man, they really let Tyson have it. It's hilarious, though.

Sorry to hear about that man Check this out, maybe it will help in some way

If I recall, there is a good beginning chunk about how our mind can change our DNA. Very interesting stuff, I highly recommend everyone watch the entire series from start to finish. Whether or not you buy it, its great food for thought

Well he's just now trying to get clean, that's why. I think going public with it is a good idea. Tyson is a polarizing person, but with polarization comes a lot of support. Hopefully that'll help keep him clean.
