An addict fell in a hole and couldn't get out. A businessman went by. The addict called out for help. The businessman threw him some money and told him to buy a ladder. But the addict could not find a ladder in this hole he was in. A doctor walked by. The addict said, "Help. I can't get out." The doctor gave him some drugs and said, "Take this, it will relive the pain." The addict said thanks, but when the pills ran out, he was still in the hole. A renowned psychiatrist rode by and heard the addicts cries for help. He stopped and said, "How did you get in there? Were you born there? Did your parents put you there? Tell me about yourself, it will alleviate your sense of loneliness." So the addict talked with him for a hour, then the psychiatrist had to leave, but he said he would be back next week. The addict thank him, but he was still in the hole. A priest came by and heard the addict calling for help. The priest gave him a Bible and said, "Ill pray for you." The priest got down on his knees and prayed for the addict, then left. The addict was very grateful and he read the whole Bible, but he was still stuck in that hole.
A Recovering addict happened to be passing by. The addict cried out, "Hey, help me, I'm stuck in this hole." Right away, the recovering addict jumped in the hole with him. The addict said, "What are you doing? Now we're both stuck here. " BUT the recovering addict said. "It's okay, I've been here before, I know the way out."

It just goes to show, that it takes another addict to help another..SUPPORT!!!

I think it is kind of funny. We always go searching everywhere we can to get help. Going to Church has saved my butt to this day, but working with other Addicts is what Works. I went to a AA Weds night, the one used to go too. AA meetings always seem so much more Spiritual too. SO, yes it goes to show that we need each others help to get out of that Hole. The saying, "it takes on to know one"...Ha!!

Have a Great Day my Friends!
