A Reaction to Mike Tyson's Confession

Say what you will about Mike Tyson but in many ways I have a respect for him these days. I had no idea about his current struggles but I've noticed a real softening of his heart over the past few years. When I watched the video clip of Mike talking about his struggles I got choked up and yet HYPED at the same time. We all make resolutions to better our behavior, etc., so whether or not Mike ever uses again or not matters to me for his sake but it doesn't matter to me at the same time because anyone who knows what it's like to be addicted knows that there will be many failures along the path to recovery and healing. The fact that he went up there and allowed himself to be emotionally disemboweled in front of all of those people though earns my respect.
