I feel much the same. Sometimes knowing that there is someone or something out there that can resist helps you resist temptation all the more. TB definitely helped a lot more than it appears at first glance. Also I feel like it's part of the over-all message of every little thing is important, and how without TB, or Goldberry, or Fatty Bulger or Farmer Maggot, and so on, the ring never would even have gotten to Rivendell. Everyone has their little part to play, and if each person had exceeded their part, or neglects it, then the entire thing would fail
