    Remember, as long as you draw breath it is always possible to make a change. Enjoy your new found freedom.

    the WT Organization said all the “New World” would be here within this 20th century would end)

    Why didn't anything happen is related to the fact that the book of Revelation is fictional mythology and will never happen ?

    The WTS is and has been a fear mongering apocalyptic religious publishing house that exploits people's ignorance and insecurities as a means to cultivate money and power.

    That is an unquestionable "Truth" .

    Welcome to your escape from this harmful delusion and hoping you do well in embracing reality in a wholesome and honest way.

    Do you have kids? If so, how are things working out with them?

    It's too bad you didn't have access to old WT literature back in the day.

    Pastor Russell published that the end of the old system would come in 1914.

    James Jack good for you! Enjoy your freedom and remember 60 is not that old. My wife and I at 66 and 65 last year started a business selling our custom blended herbal teas. So far it has shown alot of interest in our area. It's easy to do and besides it keeps us out of trouble. Lol. Take care and good luck to you and your family. Still Totally ADD

    I was in my fifties when I walked away, little in the way of retirement planning, and huge debt, which got worse, as my business relied upon JW customers, I never got any more business from them !

    I did not know how Mrs Phizzy would react, like me, she was born in. I was lucky, her loyalty and love for me was greater than that for the org. Although her journey away from the mental hold the org has was slower than mine, our marriage survived, and is now stronger than ever. We survived financially too, now we are far from well off, but able to weather the storm that will be the economic disaster from Brexit which is shaping up right now.

    I tell you my story to give you hope and courage. Your wife is with you, and some family too, you are young enough to make a new life.

    Enjoy the wonderful freedom that leaving gives you, the freedom to be the real You ! I wish you and yours all the best for the future !

    Fantastic! You are still young. Enjoy life and freedom and love those who truly love you! The rest are not worth your time. Great news!

    You will be amazed at how much time you truly have without doing all the JW "tasks."

    We left in our late 40's. Took our kids with us. BEST LIFE EVER!!!

    Congratulations on yours and your wife’s ‘fade’ from the JW religion.

    I’m out almost twenty years and now Retired. Don’t despair about your age. As others here have said, you can still manage!

    Also, you are fortunate you have other close family out and don’t have to endure the stress of others who have close family in who aren’t speaking to them.

    Much luck and happiness on your journey!

    The very moment you realize that all religions are scams, you get a tremendous satisfaction and peace in life.

    Dont regret for the yeasrs you spent for the cult. Be happy that you were brave enough to come out. Live every moment, coz this is the only life we have
