One of the most frequently asked questions I’m asked is…
“Does this Recovery Stuff really work? Can it really change my life?”
Well, you know from reviewing the 2b1 Institute Site what our belief and experience is. So here’s a chance to read what other followers say:

I had an email exchange today with DuvidChaim.
I was also on his call today.
I recommend it to all – that is, if you wanna learn how to live life. If you merely wanna figure out how to lock your zipper, don’t bother; the call is all about livin’ life.
Yesterday I went to speak to someone. I went armed with a little pocket-sized blue book, and a few papers of work that I had done. After a quick hug, we started getting down to work. 3 hours later, I walked out. A new man. It was nighttime here in eretz yisroel, but the sun was shining bright. My new life was just starting. I took a deep breath, smelled the flowers, and said “selicha” to the grey striped cat that was blocking my path.
I was finished my own personal pesach-cleaning, now its time for me tt leave the slavery of mitzrayim and move on.
For all of you that still don’t know what I’m talking about, yesterday, I went and did my 5th step. I have never felt a feeling like I did when I walked out of Duvid Chaim’s apartment. I felt on top of the world, a free person. The people who I had resented for whatever reason, I now wanted to do something for them. At that moment, Hashem made a flower store appear in front of my eyes, I went in and bought something for my wife. No expectations and for nothing in return, just because I love her. For the first time in our life together, she appreciated a romantic gesture. And it was a red rose no less, something she always told me she hated (they didn’t have anything else). Its now on display on our dresser.
Since I walked out of that apartment, every thought, every sight and every action has been preceded by a thought “am I doing this looking through the right pair of glasses?”
I saw the sky grey, I saw my life black and I saw my future bleak, all for one reason: I was wearing sunglasses. Duvid Chaim spent 3 hours ripping those glasses off my face, and putting on a new pair of glasses. This morning, the sky was a beautiful blue (its not snowing here in eretz yisroel), my life is amazing, and right now (here’s a biggie) I don’t care about my future.
Looking past at my previous posts, I can thank Hashem for sending me to do the 5th step at the exact time that I needed it. I also davened for one thing this morning, “please keep me thinking along these lines, so that I
may better serve you and be a pleasure to be around”.
Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
