    Hi everyone,

    New here but looking forward to joining in some of the discussions with you all.

    A small bit about me: I'm Shane. Was raised as a JW in the UK by my Mum (single parent family) from about 2 years of age. Got baptised at 15 for all the wrong reasons. Moved to Ireland as part of my exit strategy 20 years ago and still here.

    Thanks OTWO.

    it's good to have an exit strategy.

    Wasn't much of one really. Most of my mums non-JW family are here in Ireland so i knew if I needed material help etc I could ask them. Thankfully didn't.

    So the plan was to move to Ireland under the pretense that I was helping where the need was greater and eventually fade. Not long after moving over I was enjoying life as a young 20 -21 year old fella should do but quickly realised it was a small town and community and I was going to get rumbled.

    So I took control of the situation and DA'd. Many years later looking back at it I probably would just move again to where I wasn't known and fade that way to avoid shunning but hey it is what it is and i have no regrets leaving the JW's.
