Desire for Tobacco Overcome

Through reading and receiving much benefit from the many testimonies published in Journal and Sentinel, I am frequently reminded of my own failure to relate some of the benefits I have received through Christian Science.

I have been investigating this all-important subject for some time. It is about thirteen years since I first knew there was such a thing as Christian Science, and about eighteen months since I determined to give it a fair trial. I first started in by applying what knowledge I had gained to treating myself for the tobacco habit of seventeen years standing. I am thankful to say that in one month I was entirely free from the disgusting habit of chewing tobacco.

I have been cured of what mortal belief calls a bad and hopeless case of drunkenness, said to be hereditary. I was under treatment for this trouble about thirty days, after which it yielded and all desire for intoxicating drinks disappeared. This demonstration was made finally and completely in Houston, Tex., about nine years since. It was in the midst of temptation that I was lifted out of this habit.
