Freedom from addiction to sleep medication

At one point in my life, I had been addicted to a prescribed sleeping pill for over 12 years. As a longtime student of Christian Science, I yearned to be free and to rely solely on spiritual means for health and happiness. 

I had a dear friend who was a Christian Science practitioner, and I asked her to pray for me at various times. She encouraged me, expressing confidence that I could feel so divinely inspired and embraced by God’s love that taking a pill would never enter my thought.

One Monday morning, I went for a walk as I contemplated this Bible verse: “Now it is high time to awake out of sleep” (Romans 13:11).
