You can stop smoking

"When I say that prayer really will put an end to the desire to smoke, I am speaking from experience."

[Original in Spanish]

For years I was enslaved by smoking before I became interested in Christian Science, and I resorted to all kinds of means to reinforce my willpower so I could stop it. But the more I tried to drop cigarettes, the more I smoked! I was in despair. Some nights when I was out of cigarettes, I would go out at any hour to get more of them. I rebelled, but I could not stop smoking! Finally one night I decided to pray for guidance on how to free myself from this habit. I turned to my Bible, looking for an answer. My eyes fell on Christ Jesus' statement "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; ... for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth." Matt. 7:7, 8 .
