Hey everyone, I am new to this site. My great grandmother was a Witness and I was in the truth in my young childhood. My mother is disfellowshipped and I am currently studying with my husband, who knew nothing about the truth but had been very good at studying and has great knowledge about the bible. I have trouble getting motivated to get to the meetings and I am having trouble stopping smoking. The only people that I talk to that are in the truth are the brother and sister that I study with. Don't get me wrong I can call them anytime and talk and they are really GREAT!! They are my "spiritual parents". My parents are not in the truth and are very hard drinkers. It had been very hard for me to grow up in the family that I have and then try, as an adult, to make my life better. I stumbled apon this site looking for an article from one of the Awakes and I really felt like I can meet inspirational people. I know in my heart that I want everything that is right and I know that I need it in my life. I would love to talk.
