RADIO PROGRAM No. 281 - A Healing of Alcoholism

Speaker: We feel that today's program is an encouraging one. With the help of our guest, Mrs. Harriet Nelson, of Norfolk, Nebraska, we should like to show you how an understanding of God filled a deep need and healed a case of acute alcoholism. This is Mrs. Nelson's own experience.

When did the trouble start, Mrs. Nelson?

Mrs. Nelson: It was after my husband died. I felt terribly lost and lonely, even though I had my three children. My doctor was giving me sleeping tablets because I was so upset. Then one evening some friends said they thought it would be better if I'd have a drink to help me sleep. And that was how I happened to take my first drink.
