Chapter 1:

I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost...I am helpless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

Chapter 2:

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I cant believe I am in this same place, but it isn't my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter 3:

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it there.
I fall in...its a habit...but my eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It IS my fault.
I get out immediately.

Chapter 4:

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

Chapter 5:

I walk down a different street.

The hole in the sidewalk. A classic. So simple. So True. Probably the best Addiction Analogy out there.

Nicely put ... been there, done that, hated it but am now conquering it.  One moment at a time.  Thanks for the post.
