So I am just wondering why is smoking ciggerates(or nicotine for that matter) not sinful, seeing as how it is so bad for your health and can temporarly make you dizzy, if you are a new smoker. why isn’t it a mortal sin…it makes no sense.
Neither does the fact that caffiene isn’t a mortal sin, today i was drinking every 30 min to even function, or i would have went down due to being extremely tired and getting like no sleep. I mean the Cathecism always says use moderation, but i sometimes wonder why isn’t it a sin, it seems to hurt me alot at some points even when i take it in a normal dose, it gives me gas, and kind of makes me tired when the effect wears off, in todays case i had too much mocha coffee. It made me tired after having too much. Which i am guessing hurt me a little. Also i developed an addiction over it, on the days i don’t have it, i am overly tired even after getting a large amount of sleep, its like my body needs it to be up and running.
Also for alcohol i can see it is bad because if you have too much it hurts you and others. But a little is fine at least.
Still i don’t get it even at little amounts all can affect you slightly with your health, and moderation is the key to the lock of course. But i also read somewhere if something affects your morality & reason it is a mortal sin, is that in the Cathecism or what? Also how is cocaine and meth a mortal sin, the way i see it they don’t affect your morality and reason immediatly but after it may. When the drug wears off and you actually see the damage done to your body.Anyway can you guys fill me in on why cigs, caffiene, alcohol, and sometimes medicine is ok because it isn’t sinful, but why are drugs sinful to use, especially some drugs such as stimulants.
