Why are we only worried about choking now?
  • In Orach Chaim 607:1 it says:
  • >צריך להתודות במנחה קודם סעודה המפסקת‎‎‎‎
  • >
  • > One must say vidui at mincha prior to the final meal before the fast.
  • The [Mishnah Berurah](https://www.sefaria.org/Shulchan_Arukh%2C_Orach_Chayim.607.1?lang=bi&p2=Mishnah_Berurah.607&lang2=bi) explains:
  • >**קודם סעודה המפסקת** - שמא יארע לו דבר קלקלה בסעודה שיחנק או שתטרף דעתו ולא יוכל להתודות אח"כ
  • >
  • >**Prior to the final meal before the fast**- Perhaps something bad will happen to him, or he will become crazy, and he won't be able to confess afterwards.
  • Why are we only concerned now that maybe he will choke before saying viduy, is it not possible that he can choke on a different day, and he will end up not saying viduy on Yom Kippur[^1]?
  • [^1]: So everyone should have to say a full viduy on every day.
