Mike Tyson: ‘I’m On The Verge Of Dying, Because I’m A Vicious Alcoholic’

At one point, Mike Tyson tipped the scales at 380 lbs. Now he’s a slender 290. But don’t let that fool you: He’s dying. Having lived one of the most publicly horrific lives of any athlete in history, Tyson has become a raging drug addict (alcohol is considered a drug, you guys.) Listen to him divulge the severity of his problem, and that he’s “been lying to everybody else that think [he] was sober.” Yikes.

Could have fooled me when he was on Fox Sports Live the other day…

    Pretty much what this guy said: http://ynit.me/19TM0zI Essentially he seems to have been told what to do his whole life, has real problems, and when the cards fell nobody is there to care for him. I almost pity him. I know lots of people in recovery and some didn’t make it. I lost a friend a couple days ago to alcoholism
