That human will-power is the very opposite of divine will, which operates as a corrective for all false actions, was made quite plain to me many years ago, when it was necessary to overcome the tobacco habit and a desire for strong drink. Repeated efforts to overcome the temptation to "brace up" on false courage and to soothe nerves with noxious odors proved unavailing. Fear, with its accompanying sense of confusion, was beginning to settle down upon consciousness—fear lest these desires and habits might some day become overwhelming.

About this time I had become interested in Christian Science and was an attendant at Christian Science services, as well as a witness to daily evidences of healings through the application of the Christ, Truth. However, the necessity for resorting to a Christian Science practitioner for anything save physical healing had not presented itself: material appetites, as such, had not yet been classified as errors to be subjected to Christian Science treatment.
