    Just about this time 7 years ago.

    No back-slapping please.

    Just happy to be out - out of the Watchtower - out of Christianity and it's similar faults - out of religion entirely. What freedom!

    Congrats to you my friend. Isn't freedom wonderful!

    My hubby and I were discussing the other day how it took years of being out of the Tower to fully realize the oppressive wieght we were under.

    Wishing you peace, Lilly

    Well, you have 2 years on me. I quit going to boasting sessions after the REJECT Jesus Party 2005, and quit field circus after June 2005 (which I never bothered to report). Along September 2005, I began rearranging my closet so my suits were no longer the first thing I would see, put away my bound volumes, and got a few "toys" to replace them. Finally I bought a 8 ball, in October 2005 with the pretext that next time it was a Ouija board. At which point, I was pretty much a worldly person.

    Well, in 2006 I made good on the Ouija board--on the eve of the REJECT Jesus Party. (Which I blew off.)

    It must be coming up 7 years since I attended a regular KH meeting myself now. How time flies and how it changes things.

    So you broke a mirror and had the "bad luck" period. It's over, time to come back to your senses and find Jesus.

    Just kidding. Congrats on your freedom.

    Just happy to be out

    No more jail time for me either ! - Family wise this can cause some problems , but I would not swap the freedom to think for myself

    I too am coming up on 7 years out of the JW cult. December of 2003 was my last meeting. Freedom is sweet, isn't it Jeff ? Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    I think I may have attended my last meeting in October or November of 2003. We 'officially' mark our exit as Jan 1, 2004 - but it was a wee bit earlier. First chapter of CoC sealed it. I knew I would never go back.

    It hasn't all been easy - but it has all been GREAT.
