Long-standing smoking and drinking habits healed

I had been studying Christian Science for a little over a year when one day I woke up to find that the desire to smoke cigarettes had totally left me. I had been smoking for fourteen years. I haven't smoked or had the slightest desire to since—and that was fifteen years ago. I wasn't even making an effort to quit smoking, but had been praying for direction in my life. The illuminating divine Mind had lifted the "smoke" from my consciousness and let me shed this false appetite. I knew then I was on the right path. I had found what I was looking for, something that gave meaning to my existence!

I have had many healings over the years. Some of my healings have been instant, and others I have really had to work on. But the spiritual enlightenment you get with all healings is wonderful! I think one of my best healings, in terms of what I've learned about spiritual reality, has been gaining freedom from alcohol. This took place over a year ago after I had been drinking for thirty years. I wasn't an alcoholic but a social drinker. The more I studied Christian Science, though, the more I was beginning to realize that this was another false appetite I didn't need.
