I suffer from extreme inferiority complex. So much so that, I am not able to the simplest things in life without self pity and believing how much I suck at it. I don't know how it will be fixed and what I should do, but its a vicious circle.
I was in the same situation and it is so hard, but than i realized something :( Now I dont know if it just kind of "run out" and ended and thats why i realized this or if I realized this and thats why it ended and why i got pretty good confidence and self esteem. But its worth a try i guess. So what i realized was that when you look around at all that "cool dudes" that you feel so inferior about, you will see that most of the time you could do stuff as good as they do and propably even better (even when you have low self esteem you should be able to judge that more or less objectively, when you focus on it at try to be fair ). yet they (all those douches) have this super huge ego and think that they are super cool. So I realized that feeling good about yourself is not really connected to a reason, and that if some stupid douches can feel good about themselfs and think they are the best than I (who actually are pretty good at stuff) can feel good about miself aswell. That was kind of my epiphany , Well hope that helps.
I haven't been in you situation exactly, but I've had periods when my self-esteem was down in the gutter, so I'm not sure how much this will help.
But I can recommend 2 things that are usually very very good:
#1 - drop bad habits in your life: if you procrastinate a lot, try engaging yourself with other people so it's harder to procrastinate, or if you watch too much TV, sell your TV
#2 - Help others. Volunteer. Do something for some friends. Donate blood and platelets to the Red Cross. Find meaning in including others in your life.
And take it from me... the only real failure in life is letting failure stop you. If at first you don't succeed... say "fuck what society says". Lincoln failed at dozens of things before he became president.
