    Welcome Tony, you come to the right place. A lot of good folks here and

    very informative about the cult that you were df from. After checking out some

    of the topics here you will realize that was the best thing for you, DF.

    Welcome. It is sad that you have lost friends and family. I hate the DF'ing policy. It's one of the many many reasons my family left the JW organization. They try and tell you its loving but that is BS.

    Keep reading here, you will learn so much.

    You are son young. You have your whole life in front of you. Make new friends and move on with your wonderful life.

    There are some really kind people on this site and a lot of different experiences.

    Welcome Tony.............. if you can give us a bit more of your story a real discussion will most likely start and this will be more helpful to you. Sometimes a person needs to have it be about them.

    OK thanks. I was a childhood JW star I guess you could say, always on parts at assemblies and conventions. Baptized at 8, MS at 18, even served at bethel. So I was raised to not become friends with anyone "in the world." I never considered myself really spiritual though, like to have fun. I was reproved at 19 or 20 a few times for things involving an ex girlfriend and "overdrinking" another time. So my last girlfriend dumped me then 6 months later decided to go to the elders about stuff and here i am. i love people and got a house at 24, so was having parties every weekend and it was nice to have fun with so many friends. Now i go to work and come home and just watch tv. Eric at JW Struggle told me to check this site out. Looking forward to meeting new people and hopefully make new friends. I still go to meetings so that i am reinstated and can feel normal again, but my beliefs are different now as i've done a lot of research.

    TONY - NIce to have you here , you are among friends who will be a support to you. I was DFed for about 4 years and even after being out 11 years I still experience shunning from some of my JW family. Hang in there guy, we care and understand
