From darkness to light

By Dean P

On a recent call, I was asked the question what the secret of success for men’s recovery… here was my reply:

I once heard a story, that went something like this:

This guy's walking down the street when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep he can't get out.

A doctor passes by and the guy shouts up, 'Hey you. Can you help me out?' The doctor writes a prescription, throws it down in the hole and moves on.

Then a preacher comes along and the guy shouts up, 'Preacher, I'm down in this hole can you help me out?' The preacher writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on

Then a friend walks by, 'Hey, Joe, it's me can you help me out?' And the friend jumps in the hole. Our guy says, 'Are you stupid? Now we're both down here.' The friend says, 'Yeah, but I've been down here before and I know the way out.

What makes men’s recovery tick? We are a group of men who are a little further ahead, helping a guy who’s a little farther behind.

Take what you like and leave the rest.
