  • Lore

    Baptised at 9.

    Starting having doubts at 14.

    Read about the witnesses in the watchtower library but didn't look online until I was about 15. Then I stop believing in the witnesses at all.

    Officially decided I was an atheist at 17

    The "something fishy" smell started sometime in my 20's and by about 32 it was dead and rotting.

    Baptised at 20. Began researching at 54. That's when my mind began to be reopened.

    Baptised much too young

    Wised up much too old

  • Dagney

    Bapitzed 13. Had the overwhelming feeling they were wrong about everything when I was about 24, but stayed because of friends and family, the "brotherhood." Finally left at 45.

    14 but always had doubts. I left ''officially'' at 28.

    Born in. Dipped at 17 (for a guy). I always had my sneaking suspicions that everything I knew was a bunch of BS mostly because I always had this cloud of guilt hanging above me when they tell you that if you are doing everything you are supposed to be doing you are supposed to be happy. But I was finally convinced that the elders didn't care for me personally nor was there a God that cared about me if there was one at all after a series of unfortunate events at around 19. My mom threatened to kick me out if I decided to not be a JW but after I got married I finally faded at 23. I have never been happier since I escaped the stifling hell that was my life.

    17 and 33. Though I was questioning as early as age 13.
