I want to convert to Islam... ?

What resources should I look at. I am a cradle Catholic but I need a religion that is stricter on women. Also, most Catholic youth are having premarital sex and I know Muslims don't do those things. Also I have been drinking too much and watching too much porn. I also need to abstain from eating so much so saying I need food to be halaal will make things easier when I want to avoid my family's cooking.

Please help I want to join Islam. 

Update:

Is there anyone here who is actually a helpful Muslim? 

Update 2:

Alhamdulillah. Thank you for your answers all those who were helpful.

    If you haven't realized, whatever you are seeking. I don't think you seem genuine when you say you need a "religion that is stricter on women". No genuine person talks like this unless if you're a troll. I assure you Muslim women do not feel restricted on whatever the hell that means to you and they love worshiping God.  The Islamic faith is not a religion of difficulty, God didn't make the believers to practice their faith with difficulty and there are valid reasons why certain things are forbidden by God, forbidden to both men and women and to do certain things that will help them achieve things and be better people.

    The Islamic faith isn't meant to serve whatever you're assuming will fulfill for you especially when you say "religion that is stricter on women". It will certainly will not serve in whatever the hell you're thinking the Islamic faith will do for you if you choose this faith.

    Furthermore, you can't become Muslim until you accept the fact Christianity came from God, the earlier holy texts as well as Judaism and you can't become a Muslim until God wills for you no matter what.  So, I suggest you get your intentions straight if you're not taking it seriously and not interested in connecting with your Creator. The whole point of this faith is to connect with the Creator and to live life the best you can as God laid out the rules, how to succeed in life and much more. That is the whole point of this faith and to uphold truth. NOT whatever you're assuming or have assumed.

    You are clearly a very stupid troll. Islam is strict on both males and females. In all Abrahamic religions sex before marriage, pork, alcohol and drugs is forbidden. You don’t need to be in any religion to cut these things out. Many people are going vegan in the west and also cutting out drugs and alcohol. It’s in fashion now. Why not book yourself into a yoga and meditation retreat in the countryside.

    A person can be converted to be A Muslim by giving his/her testimony or an oath as such, that,  I swear by the Holy Name of Allah that , there is no others gods except Allah , and I swear that  Muhammad is HIS servant and the Messenger of HIM.. Then swear this oath in front of Muslims to be witnesses. After becoming Muslim then you can learn more about the principles of believe and the principles of  practice. You are Welcome to the fold of Islam, may Allah shower HIS Mercy and Blessing upon you, now you have faith in Islam and practicing goodness.

    All Christians are supposed not to have sex before marriage, but many do so. Why do you suppose that Muslims are different?

    If you truly want to become a Muslim, then all I have to say is Alhamdulillah. We accept you but do research on what you can and cant do. Make sure you're not being forced or bribed into this. Then say what I'm about to type: Ash hadu alla ilaha illa Allah, wa ash hadu anna Mohammadan abduhu wa rasuluhu. This means I testify and witness that there is no god worthy of being worshipped other than Allah and that Mohammad is His Messenger. You must say it and believe in it.

    @Doug in the Quran it says that the true believers, the ones who worship Allah will go to heaven, not because of their deeds but because Allah (SWT) is the Most Forgiving, The Most Merciful. So La qum deenaqum wal ya deen. ( I believe what I think is right, You believe what you think is right, don't come to a question only to give the others the opposite of what they want)
