    Great OP.

    You're one of the great success stories on here, Snare, among others.

    I gotta say, you and Billy The Ex-Bethelite provided some inspiration for me to thrive at uni. I figured if you guys could stick with it and do well, then so could I.

    I hope you have a long, successful career in medicine.

    But we were told anyone who leaves winds up in the gutter with all the other degenerates.

    Great success story! I'm glad you had the strength and 'guts' to follow your heart.

    Thank you for such wonderful story. Amazing reflection of your ten years out. I relate to everything except:

    I kept my thoughts to myself, smiled with sincere sadness in my heart for him and walked away.

    I wish I had the ability to keep my cool that way. Beautifully done.

    Once again, thank you.

    Thank you for sharing your story. I am so happy for you. Witness kids that do not wake up are going to struggle their whole life. I spoke with a couple young brothers in service not long ago and asked them how they would ever be able to support a family. They were out of high school, pioneering and waiting for Armageddon, living at home. What a shame. I was not fully awake and still felt bad for them. Thanks again
