It is with deep gratitude to God and to Christian Science that I testify to my release from the tobacco and liquor habits, hoping this will help others who are in a similar position. I am a traveling salesman, and had been led to believe that it was necessary to drink and smoke freely in order to get business and gain popularity with my trade. I contracted these habits about twelve years ago, when I was seventeen years of age, and frequently carried the drinking to excess. About four years ago I became interested in Christian Science through the healing of my two children of cerebro-spinal meningitis. I took class instruction at once, and during this instruction I was enabled to lay aside my glasses, which I had worn about five years; but it did not awaken me to the necessity of doing Christian Science work for myself or others, consequently I made little or no progress toward the light of understanding. It seemed so much easier to get help from others.

About two years ago I became disgusted with my way of living and decided that I would be happier if I could give up drinking and smoking. I soon found that I could not give them up without help, so I went to a practitioner, and after one or two treatments I lost all taste for either tobacco or liquor.
