Given for a principle with promise, adapted to the capacity of the weak and the weakest of all saints, who are or can be called saints. - D&C 89:1, 3Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Council of the Twelve identified obedience to the Word of Wisdom as a step toward self-mastery.

Speaking at the October 1985 general conference, Elder Nelson said: "Indeed, as you develop courage to say no to alcohol, tobacco, and other stimulants, you gain additional strength. You can then refuse conspiring men - those seditious solicitors of harmful substances or smut. You can reject their evil enticements to your body."
