Paddle Ball

Picture a paddle with an elastic string and at the end of that string a little rubber ball.The paddle hits the ball. The ball having been hit, shoots outward…but the string pulls it back. The paddle hits it again. It soars off in the distance. It is drawn back again. Over and over this happens, a childs toy, no matter how hard the ball is hit. Until finally, the ball breaks free and sails off..

See the Yo-yo? It's deftly twirling up and down its string like a spider. Down and up. Up and down. Doing amazing tricks. Until it makes its last descent and lies still at the end of the string.

Visualize a spinning top, just released from its stringed catapult. Whirling frantically on its minuscule point. Then. Slowly, imperceptibly at first, it begins to wobble, lose its momentum and wildly spins out of control, rolls and comes to rest…all spun out.

Tell me.
 Do you see addiction? 
 Do you see an addict?
 I see Me?
 Do you see You?
