Is it not possible to write more than one space between two words?
Sometimes I need to type more than one space to make my statements look more distinct. However, it automatically turns out to one space anyway.

You           can         use HTML entity   for this purpose. Since it means non-breaking space, it is advisable to separate the instances of   by ordinary spaces, allowing for a line break.

That said, such formatting should be avoided in all but rare cases. Over-formatting posts rarely benefits them. For example, the line break <br> that you used in this question is not necessary and looks unnatural: it should be either a paragraph break (created with a blank line) or no break at all. There's little reason for using line breaks outside of writing poetry.
