Admit to God that you are a sinner (which we all are). Ask for forgiveness & ask Jesus to come into your heart & life. Ask Him to be your Savior & Lord of your life. Talk to Him like a friend. Tell Him your fears, hopes & dreams, disappointments, etc. You need a Bible to study & read - at least a New Testament. The Bible should be in a translation you find easy to understand. I highly recommend the Life Application Study Bible in the translation of your choice. I suggest your local bookstore, or if you prefer, you can find Bibles online. Start by reading John (the 4th book in the New Testament - 2nd half of the Bible). Your Bible should have a Table of Contents in front to help you out. Then read the book of Romans (also in the New Testament). Also, begin attending a church that teaches the whole Bible. Ask the pastor about the availability of local Bible studies & to recommend someone as a mentor, someone who is a mature Christian who can answer questions & provide guidance. While you cannot change on your own, the Holy Spirit (who will come to live in you when ask Jesus into your heart) can & will change you from the inside out if you will listen for & obey His still, small voice. May God be with you. I hope to see you on here again.
