This sadly. I don't believe anyone in the public eye that says they are sober Phone Post

It was fascinating hear him talk about the killer, suicidal inner demon voice. I think a lot of us have that but how often do we express it in words?

It sounds like he's still surrounded by some seedy people unfortunately. Phone Post

I'm sure most of you know that Teddy Atlas once held a gun to Mike Tysons head because of Iron Mike sexually harassing / maybe even attempting more? one of Teddys 11 year old family members

I think Tyson is about as fake as it gets.

Jesus KO'd stayrad - Gotta love mike. He's so captivating, dude is really interesting, pure of heart seems like he was just exploited by people his whole life and got caught up in some bad shit Phone Post 3.0

He has a likeable side, I'm with you on that. I think you're completely wrong that he is pure of heart and only a victim. No doubt he was exploited but he is also a vicious and aggressive guy, or at least was for many years.

Mike Tyson is trying to make amends with the universe. There is deep beauty in that.

This. Respect Mike as a fighter, not as a human being. Phone Post

Mike has been around and seen a lot in his time. It's a shame the guy can't keep it together. One of my favourite personalities of all time. Phone Post 3.0

Mike Tyson is an amazing beautiful person. He's smart, and dedicated to becoming a better person and willing to right his wrongs and open up about his dishonesty. It's all part of the process of recovery and getting better and what you saw and that video took more courage and was was the most alpha thing he has ever done as a person and fighter. Love you Mike fuck the haters! Phone Post

He has been for years. I talked with him at that Ricco Rodriguez boxing experiment, and even then a 300lb Tyson was talking about being sober and devoting the rear of his life to "good deeds, you know like missionary work in Africa." Phone Post 3.0

Media Monster - Damn. Between the Tommy Morrison read and this Tyson vid, my beautiful breezy Saturday morning just got a little heavier.

I can't say I'm surprised. That man went through a lot of crazy shit in his life, most of us would likely cope the same way.

Maybe his brutal honesty is him reaching for help?
Hope he gets it. Phone Post
I hope the honesty is a way for people around him to support him and hold him accountable to make sure he stays sober. Addiction is no joke, he was a phenomenal athlete. Hope he can truly make peace in his life. Phone Post
