    Hi Aideen, Sometimes they (the nuggets) seem to have made a strong enough impact to effect a lasting change, but as Sean pointed out, we sometimes forget them.

      Hi Aideen,

      Sometimes they (the nuggets) seem
      to have made a strong enough impact
      to effect a lasting change, but
      as Sean pointed out, we sometimes
      forget them. For example, a drinking
      binge followed by a massive hangover
      may cause the drinker to swear off
      alcohol...but then, as Jimmy Buffet
      sings, "If I don't die by Thursday,
      I'll be roaring Fiday night."

      You may, of course, consider the
      hangover a dark night of the soul,
      and in that case your premise
      holds up.

      Love,

      Jeff
