Aquinas says that gluttony is the closest sin to lust but from a practical viewpoint it seems anger is a kissing cousin. And while there is a righteous anger, the less righteous type seems similar to lust in its demand for its own way or the highway. Both are bred or fed in restlessness, both are anti-reflective, anti-meditative...both stir up the blood. A confessor once said that lust is exacerbated by stress, which seems a convenient enough excuse given modern life. I noted it, but didn't buy it.
