    Hello Deke and welcome to the forum.

    We are all at various stages of our own personal journey escaping the Org - some further down the line than others.

    You will find this to be a very helpful forum with a wealth of advice and guidance, so I encourage you to read up on the discussion topics that are of interest to you.

    Looking forward to your posts.

    Welcome Deke to a new world of enlightment. How all here at 0ne time was held captive to a concept. Like you all of us woke up at diffrent times in our lives. For my wife and I we were in our mid 50's. So enjoy your new freedom. Looking forward to your story. Still Totally ADD

    Welcome to the forum!

    I ‘faded’ from the Witness religion in 2001. I was not born-in but joined as a young working adult. It was not easy being a single working woman in this religion and I was definitely on the fringes and not invited much.

    After their 1995 teaching on Generation, I knew it was over and planned my ‘fade’. I retired a few years ago and am thankful I held onto the job these fools criticized me for having! I know about the changes in the religion and I certainly would never tolerate these hypocrites asking for money.

    Good luck on your journey!

    Deke.. congrats. Your story gives me hope. My mom is still a JW after....yep....

    48 years. .... 1970 must have been a banner year for baptisms. She was baptised in Alaska.
