Give it up and £et a raise. Get
it out of your system. With brain clear—
nerves steady—eyes bright—“full of peg”—
your efficiency increased—you can command
more money and get it.
Booze costs more than the money
you spend for it. It costs health, friendship,
position, social standing, happiness, confi
dence of employers and associates. Drink it
and you play a losing game.
The quicker you realize this and
investigate the Neal Treatment the better
for you. It permanently removes all desire,
