The depraved appetite for alcoholic drinks, tobacco,
tea, coffee, opium, is destroyed only by Mind's mastery
of the body. This normal control is gained
through divine strength and understanding.
There is no enjoyment in getting drunk, in becoming a
fool or an object of loathing; but there is a very sharp
remembrance of it, a suffering inconceivably terrible to
man's self-respect. Puffing the obnoxious fumes of tobacco,
or chewing a leaf naturally attractive to no creature
except a loathsome worm, is at least disgusting.
