oh yea, I sure did !
there was a group in my hall who called themselves "the unholy jw's". And we did quite a bit of drugs.
The schumann brothers were my entry into this world. While my parents were studying with their parents these guys introduced me to :
1) smoking cigarettes
2), smoking dope.
3), drinking heavily.
4), dating wild, worldly girls.
We would go to the Friday night talk and wt study, then change and go buy some beer, one of the brothers had a good supplier for good weed available. Then we would go cruising for girls.
Since I was just considered a study back then,I felt like I had gone to Disneyland ! Having grown up strict RC the absolute freedom was mind blowing.
And every weekend we went out and got plastered, it was great fun, but there was something that just did not feel right about it to me.
But these brothers ?? They lived for screwing around. And their father was the congregation po. .
He would literally beat them if someone saw them drinking, or going to an R rated movie,,,, but nothing ever changed.
One by one they drifted into the heavy drugs like heroin, one got married (now divorced, really a screwed up person, 52 and he lives for Jimmy Buffet and the coral reefers). Nothing wrong with the band, but there comes a point in life when the drinking, and partying should slow down I think.
I look back at how really bad and hypocritical we were, and how we put on false fronts about our jw lives and I almost literally get sick about it.
So in closing, if my parents never got involved with the jw religion, I would never have had the pleasure of experiencing some good weed, excellent beer, crazy women, and learning the finer points of being a total hypocrite.
thanks wtbts for showing me how to be a total idiot, and be respected by your followers.
