Greenboard around shower surround, how shoud I go about this?

Finally finished a shower surround, but I still got work to do, pictures pretty much explain it all. Gap between base and wall, and the greenboard around the surround.

Thanks for any ideas someone has!

You will have to remove the existing drywall back to the next available stud and either split the stud with the two pieces of drywall (old and new) or add a nailing surface to the side of that stud for the new drywall to land on and be supported.

Ok Sounds good, only thing is the part of the surround thats screwed in sticks out, should I just sand down the greenboard on that side so it fits? I also forgot to ask about this next picture here. There isn't a lot of room, and the greenboard just cracks when I try to screw it in with the little bit of studd that is there, in fact I had to extend the wall myself so I even had anything to screw the shower wall onto.
