in reply to Overcoming addiction to Lisp

I'd suggest the methadone approach. Take a look at the Joy language. It's even more elegant than Scheme (some of us don't think lisp is all that elegant). But its also less practical. That's the key. You won't get the rush from creating useful applications with it, but you'll still get a mild buzz from being able to appreciate the simple essence of computation that Joy provides.
