As I was very anxious to be rid of this habit I took another chance, and I can truthfully say it was the only one that came out victorious. At that time I was also very proficient in the use of profane language, and when I came to my senses and found that I could not swear and did not even want to, I was scared.

But in this same hour I was led to the Bible and it opened at the book of Job; and I read it with all the patience of Job, and have been reading it ever since. Next in line came the healing of a discordant body, which seemed to me to be very near the grave. I did not want anything to eat, and could not have eaten it if I had.
