I have smoked for years and years, but recently due to breathing problems have quit. One thing I have used to help motivate me are those pictures of the black lungs and stuff they have caused by smoking. It got me thinking the other day. At my baptist church at least they talk about treating your body like a temple, but I have never heard anyone speak out against smoking. But thinking about what smoking does to your insides, I have to say makes me sick. I had never thought of it this way, but now I feel like I have been destroying my temple, and I do personally feel like it is not something God would be happy about. What do you think of it? Do you think smoking is going against the teaching that your body is a temple?

I'm not a Christian but I am a smoker. The way I look at it, I'm going to die sooner or later, if smoking doesn't kill me then something else will.
My body is not a temple, it is an amusement park. It gives me plenty of pleasure and lots of thrills and every once in a while it makes me hurl.
