The therapist tells him the cure for his “addiction” is to quit softball cold turkey               and tap his temples three times whenever he feels the urge to play. After a few months, Ferdie announces               that ST isn’t helping and he’s going to stop coming. The therapist gives him testimonials of other clients               who swear by ST, explaining that Ferdie’s doubts are actually a sign that the therapy is working.
