Establishing a minhag


One who is strict in a particular matter three times, knowing that this is not a demand of the law and choosing to do it anyway, is now bound to continue the practice as though he had taken a vow.

One who is strict because he mistakenly believes this is the law, and then finds out otherwise, is not bound to continue his strict practice.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Yoreh Deah 1:46)

Have a great day,
