    It is foolishness to jump into the river to save some one drowning without knowing swimming. So it is not selfishness to keep oneself busy in learning swimming while others are drowning. Renouncing the world in search of truth is, therefore, not selfishness.

    Addiction is like swimming in an ocean for a very long time...drowning really, ready to give in. You're so tired, but you keep swimming, and then you start REALLY drowning. It's like trying to grasp for a breath, one tiny inhalation to keep going, and you get the one breath, but you are near death, suffocation, and each time you still manage to get one small breath in to keep going. Until finally either you break free, you swim away from that magnificent grip, that monster lurking that keeps pushing your head under, or you have drowned. You died. It's that simple.
