Since when can you use an A-bomb(or for that matter, any bomb) without destroying it?

In the world of Middle Earth, the use of a ring of power doesn't destroy it.

For the analogy to fit, the allies would have renounced to use and destroyed the means to make and use the bomb, just like the destruction of the One ring prevented any further use of the ring and with Sauron reduced to a powerless spirit, the ability to make more rings of power was also lost.
