    hey guys,

    since leaving, has anyone done anything specifically BECAUSE it was condemned by the society?

    - i went and got a tattoo (i had wanted one anyway, but REALLY enjoyed it since it was a no-no...i'm getting a big'n next week...)

    - i tried smoking (didn't much care for it, but felt i ought to give it a go anyway)

    - i grew a goatee (again, wanted this anyway, but take special pride in it now)

    i was just curious. -- doogs

    Doogie I did pretty much the same things you did

    * Got a tattoo

    * Tried smoking cigarettes and didn't like the taste, but very seldomly I still might inhale a Black&Mild

    * As much sex as possible (That was only for a short while, Imma good girl now)

    * Went to a New Year's Eve party and actually got drunk

    * Celebrated Christmas....I have all the trimmings even the angel for the top

    * Going to church as much as possible...and guess what...I didn't get struck with lightening

    * Many other no-no's that I can't remember right now

    * I also have donated blood and plasma when short on money

    * Watched many many demonic movies such as Scooby-Doo, Star Wars(the force is demonic ya know), all the Child's Play movies(people laughed at me in high school because I had never watch Chucky)

    I bought a windchime and some incense--always wanted a windchime, but some JWs around here thought they may "stumble" some weak in the faith.

    I also got a tattoo , but no matter what you do is against the Wettower.

    As much sex as possible

    i'll admit to getting drunk a time or two as well. i've always had as much sex as possible even before i left...which ended up being "not so much"...and by that i mean...umm...well, none.
