Congratulations on 25 years, Bob. Congratuations also on quitting smoking! One aspect of anniversaries that I like is the fact that it is proof to oneself that the thoughts we used to have (e.g. I can't quit) are countered. We prove to ourselves that our thoughts of gloom and doom are just thoughts, and in reality may be wrong. But another aspect is that you do demonstrate to others that you have "made it" for at least this length of time. That speaks volumes about where sobriety is in your list of "goals" for life. And that speaks well of your character in my opinion.
