Initially read the life stories of great Buddhist masters beginning with Shakyamuni Buddha.

Me being an atheist, I've found myself not governed to moral codes or ethics. I've noticed today that I am a mean, judgmental person, corrupted with luxuries and pleasures. Even with all of this, I am not truly happy. I only found potential "highs" when I'm with friends or drowning myself in entertainment.
I want this to end. I want to be a good human, with respect for life. I don't want to be so desensitized to all situations. Will Buddhism cure my sickness? Or are there extra steps to take, since I'm so far in the hole.
