No more alcohol

Though I had been raised in Christian Science, I was no longer studying it when I first met my husband. I had no idea what it was like to live with a heavy drinker, but I found out soon after we were married when home life became very difficult. I attended Al-Anon (a group for friends and families of alcoholics). Though they were loving and encouraging, there seemed to be little hope of complete healing.

Later, I again began studying Christian Science because of a need for physical healing (see my testimony in the Sentinel of March 26, 1990). With the truths of God and man we find in our study, I was better equipped to meet this drinking problem. Not only did I have to contend with my anger at the situation, but I also needed to learn not to feel sorry for my husband. It was a time of learning more how to see the man whom God created, where mortal sense sees addiction.
