I had always had a great desire...

I had always had a great desire to get rid of the social drinking habit, but did not know how to do so, and every attempt resulted in failure. One day I went to a public library to find something interesting to read. On a table of periodicals I noticed a copy of The Christian Science journal. This was my first contact with Christian Science. As I read the Journal, it proved to be the greatest blessing that had ever come into my life, for it healed me of the drinking habit. That was sixteen years ago, and I have had no desire to go back to the old state of affairs.

I also received a permanent healing of the tobacco habit of fifty years' standing. During the latter years I was smoking sixty to seventy cigarettes daily. After I had been studying Science for some time these words came to me very clearly: "You have smoked your last cigarette." And it was so. I thank God that I have had no desire to smoke since, even though at first I was frequently offered cigarettes by others.
