I want to tell of my cure through Christian Science of the drug habit. It is a long, sad story covering twenty years, but I will not give all the details. From early youth I was afflicted with severe headache, and every one knows what many doctors do to give relief, and it does not take long for the unfortunate to prescribe for himself.
I was in constant fear except when under the influence of the opiate. I grieved over my condition, though the belief that I could diminish the amount of the drug gave me hope; but alas, that hope vanished and despondency took its place. At last it seemed as if I would be a complete wreck. Three limbs were broken in a fall from the roof of a high building, and while I was lying on my back with the limbs encased in a plaster cast the drug was doubled. Then a doctor said it was a good time to quit using the drug, and after my recovery I tried to do so.
I went to a doctor who is also a druggist and asked him if it was possible to diminish the drug every day till the craving was gone. He said, "Yes, but see here [he was then reading a Sentinel]; try Christian Science." He told me to see a lady who is a Christian Scientist, but I did not do so, for I was ashamed to have her know of my affliction. Finally, however, something had to be done, so I went to see her, then to the practitioner to whom she directed me. The day afterward I was healed, for when the usual hour came to take the drug I forgot it and felt no nervousness; and so it was the next day and the next. Not one moment of pain, inconvenience, fear, or loss of sleep was experienced, and the healing has been permanent.
