some might view smoking as a sin . I’m not sure I do but anyhow.
I used to smoke a pack a day until I quit 10 years ago. I just went cold turkey. I was turning 50 and had smoked for 20 years. My mother died of lung cancer at 66. And I was having friendly rivalry with my brother who would quit first. There was more than one motivation. Unfortunately I’ve put on some weight since then.
I’ve heard it said that if you can quit smoking, you can quit anything. So why cant I apply it to all my sins? Laziness, fault-finding in others, negativity, self-pity, lack of faith, hope and love. These are the ones I need to address. Smoking is addictive. maybe all these sins are addictive too. Yes of course they are. Sin is addictive. That is why it is so hard to give up!
