It’s been ninety days since I quit smoking. I heard that’s the amount of time it takes to break the habit.

I’ve been chewing nicotine gum. I’ve made it a point to make one piece of gum last as long as I can. Four gram pieces down to two gram pieces. Now I’m switching to organic gum without nicotine, in baby steps of course.

The last three months have been a cloudy roller-coaster.
