A semi-serious question
#3
I don't get the point, myself.  I think part of it is a mindset of trying to emulate "the old days", be that the 50s with wearing fedoras, or the turn of the century in admiration of Chesterton.  But science has progressed to show these things are bad for you, and prudence should dictate avoiding them even if they aren't intrinsically sinful.
"There are not over a hundred people in the United States who hate the Catholic Church. There are millions, however, who hate what they wrongly believe to be the Catholic Church -- which is, of course, quite a different thing." -Ven. Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen

"Let me repeat this sentence. It is impossible in human language to exaggerate the importance of being in a chapel or church before the Blessed Sacrament as often and for as long as our duties and state of life allow. That sentence is the talisman of the highest sanctity." -Fr. John Hardon, S.J.
