comment What is the philosophy or logic for considering masturbation to be sinful?
I agree that repressed sexuality is bad. But "normal and healthy" is not masturbate, is sex. Otherwise, what is the propose to man have a penis and woman a vagina? Btw, the only reason that you are in the world is because your father and mother did the real normal and healthy way. Probably, if you are saying that masturbate is good, you dont know what is sex... Sex is much more complex, pleasure and healthy for our body and mind than masturbate. Look the difference between: newscientist.com/article/…

comment Is one allowed to smoke Marijuana?
I accept whatever makes logic. But maybe I not getting... Thats why: 1-You brought the natural crave concept. 2-If something is in the natural crave, no problems with "giving yourself extra cravings". 3- You define your concept saying "It is not a natural crave in any society that hasn't experienced it". 4- My question: alcohol and coffee is not a natural crave according to your concept, so how r they allow to use?

Also here is a advice for my own experience: know that each sin is sin. If you fail once after 3 weeks of fasting, you DONT have a free pass to sin until the new fast. Each sin is a sin, and a new challenge that you have to gain. If you truly believe that commit this sin will be harmful for your soul, body and mind, you will see that any argument that you have to do it, you are fooling yourself(you will realize this just after the desire is gone). Control yourself. Worth. After a while with abstinence, you gonna start to change your mind and you behavior."eize hu gibor hakovesh et itzro"(avot)

Have a gemara(dont remember also when) that says that have a member that more you feed more is the hunger. So when the person stop in the begging is very hard, but tend to get easier.

Haha, had a time that I had the same problem... Since get married wasnt a valid possibility for me that time, I searched about the subject and apparently (dont remember the sources...) that masturbate is really bad and repulsive by G-d and is WORSE than some kinds of sexual relations...

Im saying that you bring a case that the person goes directly to evil to prevent other greater evils. Like I said, "for those who say that makes you lazy". If you are saying that can be forbid because you get more tend for lazy(a lot of things in allowed even making this effect, like passion fruit), Im saying that you get more tend to get calm.

Sorry for my english... Ok. How do u rank what is in your non-rigorous definition according to the Torah? Coffee and alcohol also "is not a natural crave in any society that hasn't experienced it". And more people die because one of these elements than marijuana. Different than marijuana these substances makes you addicted. Every kind of food have a body and mind effect. You are not just saying that the marijuana effect is bad, you are saying also that is worse than alcohol... dont make any sense... i think have something wrong in the way that you classify what is in yours non-rigorous def.

Finally, we are arguing about if its a sin or not. You are taking a thing that is clear that is a real sin as example.

Im saying that marijuana is just a plant and we can use as food different than kinds of poison plants that give poison fruits that we cant eat because have a clear dangerous. Also passion fruit makes you lazier....(precisely the cinnamon is a tree bark...)

comment How can one regain his faith?
Ok. So facts. Like Ramchal mention at the introduction of the book, Messilat Yesharim: people use to forget the importance of the study of how connect to G-d. Ramchal also says that connection to G-d is a kind of wisdom and, like other wisdom per example: math or medicine, you just get this wisdom with the study.
