The use of drugs was easily laid aside when I discovered the efficacy of spiritual healing. Neither tobacco nor alcoholic drinks were any special problem to me, and I quickly put an end to my occasional indulgence when I learned that to become a member of The Mother Church and to be a part of its glorious movement I had to be free of smoking and drinking.
