SUBSTR() Function

Ok, this honestly shouldnt be hard but I am pulling my hair out, currently I have:

SELECT SUBSTR(message, 0, 20) FROM posts

My goal is to start at the first characters on the far left, and then return 20 chars only. This function for some crazy reason seems to start at the end of the string though, which is stupid, because how do I know where the string starts?
