Nicotine is the substance found in tobacco. This substance can be addictive if used constantly. In this paper we shall look at the Christian perspective on the abuse of this substance, but we are also going to look into the social and medical implications. This will require critical investigation into textual evidence in relation to this discussion. We also need to be critical of positions that are assumed as right. Ultimately we will have to come to a conclusion of the results of this investigation.
