Smoking is more associated to sin than you think. Sin that leads to smoking or smoking that leads to a sin. I don’t consider smoking as a sin unless prohibited by someone, so let’s separate the two.
Here are the 7 deadly sins and smoking:
Envy – Sometimes the reason for having a stick of cigarette is because of this sin. Some parents are strict. Some are not. Children, who have strict parents often rebel because they see that some other children have the freedom to do what they want, even smoking. Kids that rebel do the things their parents mostly prohibit, and those are the basic ones, drinking and smoking.
Gluttony – All smokers do know that one of the best times to light a cigarette is after a meal or drink. It’s better if you had a satisfying one, or in other way excessive.
Greed – Smoking is addictive. The more you smoke, the more you like to smoke. You want to have more.
Lust – What others do after satisfying their lusts? They smoke a cigarette or tobacco perhaps. Some people puff a couple after having s**.
Pride – A man smokes because he wants to. He doesn’t listen to anyone, especially those advising him to stop. What only matters to him is his opinion.
Sloth – People who don’t want to do anything intend to find the simplest thing that they can do. Lighting a cigarette is one of the simplest things to do. If only they can’t find anything easy to do, they will be doing something worth doing. But smoking happens to be one so they are stuck doing practically nothing.
Wrath – An angry man wants to smoke. That’s basic. A man who can’t smoke if he wants to, will be angry. It’s a common reaction.
So what sin did you commit today? Did you smoke your way to that? Be careful everyone…
