Work.

And become one of the working poor, still on benefits.  0 hour contract, no security - that's even if you can get a job, which, as has been pointed out, is near impossible without an address and a roof over your head.

you can blame the unions for letting minimum wage and zero hour contracts in. Now don't get me wrong there were jobs out there that needed protecting, especially some of the small cuttlery firms (sweat shops) operating in Sheffield, but it was obvious instead of being able to negotiate any wage rise management only had to pay the minimum wage. and that's exactly what they have been doing untill reacently although the min & living wage now introduced is still far from what some of us were earning 20 years ago.

First step should be getting working habit. Instead, you know, other habits.

ooh- can of worms opened here! So where to start family, education , lack of social activities, mental health provision, relationship breakdown, poverty etc. My work ethic came from family and education but was nurtured by the rest- not everyone is so fortunate
