Today, I'm celebrating the 9 month anniversary of the day that I last smoked a cigarette. At one point today, I really wanted a cigarette. I was upset and frustrated with underwriters who keep putting hurdles between me and the house I'm trying to buy. My old habit haunted me. It would have been so easy to pick up a cigarette to calm the upset and frustration.
I don't usually think of it that way.
But yes. It has been nine whole months.
