. . . Learn wisdom in thy youth; yea, learn in thy youth to keep the comandments of God. — Alma 37:35
"Alcohol, tobacco, drugs, pornography, and gambling are but a few examples of dangerous substances and addictive practices we have been warned to avoid. I appeal to all — especially to young people — to hear and heed the words of the men and women God has called as your leaders and teachers," said Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve in April 2002 general conference. "You will be blessed if you refrain from setting your own wisdom or desires ahead of the commandments of your Creator."
