One of my good child-hood friends was a mormon, her Father was the president of the local mormon church.

My older Brother is a mormon and I enjoyed the Mormon way of life as an adolescent and I would love to become a Mormon again, except I am finding It hard to stop smoking and do not think I’ll be allowed back into the church till I stop,

Do you have any advice on how I could give up smoking? .

What is it like to visit a Mormon chapel?

Hi friend. I’m happy you posted your question here and that you’ve had so many good experiences with Mormons over the years. It is certainly important that you stop smoking, for both your physical and spiritual health, but even as a smoker you are welcome to worship with us! In fact, the members of the Mormon congregation nearest you will probably get very excited when they learn someone is interesting in getting to know more about the faith. They’ll be happy to help you.

While anyone is free to worship with us, if you ultimately decide to formally join our church through baptism it will be especially important to overcome your addiction first. Mormons believe that addictions make it harder for people to connect with God. That’s one of the reasons why we try to avoid things like tobacco and alcohol. However, with support from leaders and friends in your Mormon congregation, you’ll have a fighting chance to overcome your addiction. Did you know that there are also medications that can help people free themselves from cigarettes? Perhaps your doctor could also help you overcome the physical aspect of your challenge.

I suggest you visit with some of our missionaries, who could help you learn more about our church and stop smoking. You’re also welcome to worship with us in one of our chapels any Sunday morning, usually at 9:00.

I hope this answer helps. Please let me know if there’s anything more I can do. Best of luck to you.
