Every sin has different purgatory

Every sin has different purgatory:[1]

Every sin a person does blemishes a part of his connection with G-d. To repair this tear one must go through suffering either in this world or the next. Every sin makes a unique tear that requires a unique form of cleansing and punishment that is specified for that sin. This applies even for those categories of sins that carry a penalty of excision or death by Beis Din, nevertheless, each blemish and consequent punishment is truly unique. The purpose of this punishment is to cleanse and remove the dirt and blemish that was created due to the sin.
