He was trying to forget his sins but the weight of them was unbearable, he was living an unhappy life. The book makes reference to his immoral acts but they are the ones that lead to unhappiness. What the author is doing is not idolize the life of sin but criticising it because the ending is tragic and it is not a life that a normal person would want. People tend to look for happiness and the book shows that a life of sin does not make an individual happy, it actually makes people feel regret and a weight on their conscience.

Camus consolidates the characteristics of the characters by assortment, consistency, and everybody's
