OK, first things first.... no need to type your subject all in capitals, it's the equivalent of shouting and it's against the forum rules, which I would like respected, thanks
That aside, it sounds like you might be experiencing some normal first-time helicopter blues. What's the make and model of the heli? Drifting off to the left is completely normal for little FPs, the thrust from the tail rotor does that. With time you'll get to react to it as the heli lifts off, without even knowing you're doing it!
If you are new to real (not virtual) helicopters then you will lose control very quickly - it's the nature of the beast I'm afraid, they are extremely difficult to control at first, and take a good few hours practice (airtime) to start to crack the hover.
It's very possible that the flybar (the 2 small paddles perpendicular to the main rotor) is not set up right, but I think it's just that this is your first time flying - completely normal.

One more thing... how windy was it when you flew outside?
