A turning point in my life...

A turning point in my life came when I was following a seagoing career. The ship's wireless operator seeing my need of help presented Christian Science to me. From what I was told, I became sufficiently interested to purchase a copy of Science and Health, which I perused during an ocean passage.

Having failed to get over the smoking habit by will power, it came to me one evening as I was filling my pipe that here was a test I could make. I recalled Mrs. Eddy's remarks on material pleasures and on the use of tobacco, including her words on page 404 of Science and Health: "If a man is an inebriate, a slave to tobacco, or the special servant of any one of the myriad forms of sin, meet and destroy these errors with the truth of being,— by exhibiting to the wrongdoer the suffering which his submission to such habits brings, and by convincing him that there is no real pleasure in false appetites."
