    Baptised at 26 (hubby got baptised first, I gave up and joined later). Both of us became in active about age 30, didn't discuss religion at all til about 4? years ago (age 36) when we started admitting to each other how much we did not believe it anymore. Have been full-blown apostates (not even Christians anymore, got burnt that bad) for the past 3 or so years.

    I'm another lucky one that was born into it. Thankfully, I got my education and ended up marrying a "worldly" man, so I saved my 20s. Now if I could just get back my teen years and my childhood. Ah well, someday I will live intravenously through my own children.


    I was 14 years old.

    Young and easily influenced.

    Left when I was 21 years old.

    Never went back.

    I was raised in it, my mom was studying when she had me and baptized when I was four.

    I was predestined before birth.

    Rejoice at the revelation of cheeses.

    My great grandparents, my grandmother and father, my mother and father and myself were all born into JW.

    All doomed to a life of small minded, no education, condeming thinking.

    Whoo hoo!
