ABSTINENCE - Sefer Hamedot



1. One who conducts himself with abstinence and afterwards retreats from it, through this he falls into lusts stronger than those he had to begin with.

2. Abstinence brings one to satiety.

3. Abstinence from sexual relations is reckoned as a fast.

4. The sickness of coughing up blood comes due to annulling sexual relations on the night of one's wife's ritual immersion.
