I came here to learn more about the JWs. I ended up leaving them. I learned to open my mind to opposite thoughts. I realized how judgemental I was. I have been improving my thinking skills.
I think this forum has helped me in more ways that I even know. Maybe thats why some of us are just hooked.
If the only thing you needed was comfort, then once that is gone, you dont need that anymore since there are more people out there still in and some just coming out who need it more.
