    Nice to be here and look forward to meeting you all. I made a very sudden exit from 'the lie' approx 5 months ago. Was going to try and slowly fade but couldnt do it. I just couldnt keep going, giving up my valuable time to listen to such drivel. So I just stopped. Still having the shepherding calls - yawn. I only have two regrets so far. My husband who is still in. My best friend who I dont want to lose. I am working on both. In the meantime, I love the weekends now and all this lovely stuff called time! Life is better on the outside, no doubt about it.

    Good job. You were honest in pulling off the band-aid quickly. More people should follow your example. But whatever you do, do not turn your back on the Bible like many of these Ex-Jws. If you deny God you're better off staying in there.

    Use some of this against the ones you left behind and the stalkers:

    Congratulations on your journey out and welcome to the board! Please keep in mind that any spiritual path you end up taking must be for you because you want it. Even not taking a path at all is cool, but it has to be what YOU want, not what others want for you. You are in control of your desteny and no one should ever tell you how to do it. It's a personal journey:)
