IN college I learned to smoke cigarettes and drink alcoholic beverages. These activities competed with my academic studies, and my grades suffered. Upon graduating, I felt that I was setting out into the "real world" with more bad habits than good ones. I was not proud of myself.
Later, when I married and became a mother, I wanted to raise my children in a pure environment, so I wanted to stop smoking and drinking, but the harder I tried, the more miserably I failed. I longed for a self-help book that could guarantee me success in my struggle to break these habits.
Then a wonderful thing happened in my life. Through the simple prayer of a friend, a remarkable healing occurred when I told her of a serious physical condition I was suffering from, for which my doctors had recommended surgery. All she said to me was, "Why don't you try Christian Science?"
