Men Anonymous is a segment on The Red Green Show featuring a self-help program for the members of Possum Lodge. Each Men Anonymous segment is set in the Lodge basement (where the usual Lodge Meeting takes place) and is patterned after so-called "Twelve Step" programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous. One of the men of the Lodge will either introduce himself or be introduced (usually by Harold), then share a story with the other members about a recent event in which he either "acted like a man" or successfully avoided doing so. The rest of the members usually show solidarity and support for the speaker when he's finished sharing his story.

This segment ran between the 1996 and 1998 seasons. It is the origin of the Man's Prayer: "I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess." After this segment finished its run, the Man's Prayer was incorporated into the Lodge Meeting at the end of every episode. The Man's Prayer was modified in the series finale: "I'm a man, but I changed, because I had to. Oh well."
