    Freedom. Not having to lie. The ability to chose your friends. Being able to walk through town, minutes before a meeting in jeans and a t-shirt. Not being judged on everything you do. Being able to masturbate without fear of pleasing demons or becoming gay. Playing poker for cash.

    It's already been mentioned, and I have to agree.... "FREEDOM"...

    I just couldn't take living in a box, like a lab rat any longer.

    Knowing that I never have to do service again

    Having a BEARD!!!!

    Having many more women to choose from as a life partner

    Having infinitely more people to choose from as friends

    Not having to deal with stuck up witness relatives

    Never having to sit through 6 - 8 hour days on weekends in dress clothes EVER AGAIN!!!

    Not giving money to a corrupt organization

    Being able to choose your faith (or not having one), and live it to the best of YOUR abilities

    No more petty judgement from Dubs


    Knowing that MY KIDS will never be brought up in a hate filled cult.

    Saying "bless you" when someone sneezes

    "toasting" when others do

    no more d2d work, I always hated that

    Not having to force myself to go to meetings

    Not sitting at meetings thinking of some excuse why I have to leave half way thru, and then explaining why I had to leave!!

    Sunday mornings,


    Saturday mornings,

    weeknights relaxing with my family instead of struggling into prissy clothes to go sit and be bored,

    having an opinion and not worrying if it "STUMBLES" someone,

    not worrying about the blood issue if I or my family have surgery,

    freedom to follow a thought WHEREVER it goes, driving my two-door coupe!

    seeing my son fit in and having a great time at birthday parties,

    not having to pretend to enjoy the "friends" when they're really bigoted, rascist, ignorant, pompous fools,

    too many things to mention!
