Former boxing champion Mike Tyson says he has tried to quit alcohol but finds it very challenging to do so.

"I've been sober 12 days and it's tough. I'm mean, I'm irritable. It's a real challenge because I don't know if I like this sober boy. It's hard for me to live normal; straight is hard," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Tyson as saying.

The 47-year-old thinks about dying when he drinks heavily.

"When I start drinking and I relapse, I think of dying. You know I'm in a real dark mood. I think of dying and I don't want to be around anymore. I won't survive if I don't get help," he said.
