I have had many proofs of God's love since taking up the study of Christian Science some nine years ago. Up to that time I had for many years previous been using an excessive amount of alcoholic drinks in all forms, until I had practically become an invalid. Doctors had told me that I could not continue the habit and live. I had spent a fortune in trying to stop it, besides giving up a lucrative business, but to no avail, until I found myself in the depth of despair with all the chances of life against me and no way to turn for relief. I then began reading the Bible, but with no apparent results, and it was then that my wife spoke to me about a book which she had, which she said was a key to the Scriptures and that it helped one to understand the Bible better and would no doubt help me. Only those who have had a similar experience with the liquor habit can appreciate the condition my health was in at the time. The lining of my stomach had been destroyed; besides I suffered from asthma, eczema, rheumatism, nervousness, constipation, and many other troubles brought about by this habit. I am glad to state, however, that I was healed of the desire to use liquor in any form after reading the book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and through the continued study of Christian Science and the loving help of Christian Science practitioners I have been healed of all the diseases to which I was in bondage, and of the use of tobacco, and many other bad habits. One of the remarkable things about the healing of a bad habit in Christian Science is the fact that all desire to return to it is entirely removed, and in its stead is a desire to know more and more about this beautiful truth.

I am truly grateful for the many blessings my family and I have received since taking up this study, grateful for the understanding I am able to get of the teachings of Jesus, for the spiritual uplift which comes to me daily, and for the help so often received from loving practitioners. I am especially grateful for the help so often found in the periodicals. They are so full of the truth that I could not think of doing without any of them. I am very grateful to God and to Mrs. Eddy for this truth which is bringing such joy and happiness into so many lives to-day.
