  1. I'm not a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I want to state that first, since there's no bishop I could talk. I've smoked over 15 years, and I'm heavily addicted to nicotine. Not happy with it, but stupid choices were made, and here we are. The Word of Wisdom forbids smoking, for obvious reasons, but how about nicotine products like nicotine gum? The church web page states "When people purposefully take anything harmful into their bodies, they are not living in harmony with the Word of Wisdom.", which just made my question more complex, at least for me. So, what do you think? Is it against the Word of Wisdom to use nicotine products, if the reason is to treat addiction? If there would be a doctors order, they would be counted as a medicine, and they would be okay, right? How about in the situation where one doesn't want to pay the doctors fee? Thanks in advance!
