Finally figured out what has been nagging me in the back of my mind.
I spent most of my career working in the addictions field. Early on I met this old AA guy who used the following anaolgy when explaining alcoholism to people that were having trouble wrapping their head around the concept and it revolved around cucumbers.
He would say you can take a cucumber and pickle it, you can take the pickle out of the juice and dry it out BUT no matter what you do it'll never be a cucumber again, its been changed forever.
Thats whats been eating at me.
