RADIO PROGRAM No. 66 - An Answer to the Problem of Social Drinking

On this program Elmer Charles Paxton of Dallas, Texas, told of his own experience, as follows:

Over a period of twenty years I accepted the notion that social drinking was a harmless way to good fellowship, both in the business world and in social contacts. I was in sales work and began to drink for social reasons. Lightheartedness and congeniality seemed to come easily with a few drinks, and I classed any unpleasant consequences as an accident or the result of faults of character. I seldom traced any unpleasant occurrences to drink itself. Actually, I guess I was fooling myself badly, and my drinking grew to excess.

Then came the sad day of awakening. I had lost my home, friends, my business, and I was sick at heart. With this sad array of companions, I turned to Christian Science.
