Re: This Side of Paradise question (spoiler)

If I am not mistaken, the thing that prompted Kirk to fight the spores was a medal (which I do not believe we are ever told what medal it is exactly) that he pulls out of a compartment in his quarters. Presumably this medal reminds him of his duty and dedication to the ship and crew. This drive in Kirk is more powerful that the spores' influece. An internal biological conflict ensues and Kirk's passion for this duty overcomes in the end.
