Reading through the thread, I agree with the "radical party ", Dylan, Binocular and Nwad.
Buddha shows the way to end suffering, and imo every sensual pleasure causes pain. I try break down the fetters gradually. It can't happen overnight. The OP was about the percepts.
IMHO the more percepts we can take, the closer we can get to enlightenment, which is not a religious illusion, it really works (in my personal experience).
I have some problems with the percepts, in India people can sleep on the floor, but in colder climates it can lead to illnesses. The bed causes sleepiness, hunger, craving and lots of problems. For that reason, he said not to sleep on a high bed.
I considered not having a girl for ten years is a curse, but now I think it's a virtue.
I think it's possible to skip one percept, for example eating afternoon, but taking the others. I have to eat afternoon, especially when work starts at noon.
I still have some problems with drinking beer, but as I mentioned, taking the other percepts helps a lot.
I hacked a game, I have unlimited weapons.
I consider this not a stealing because I have already purchased these, just deleted it in the meantime.
