    Baptized in 75. The people who studied with me never made a big deal of the 7000 years thing, just that they passed, so it didn't factor into my decision.

    Left in Jan. 2002 after they 'marked' me for my interest and pursuit of OBE's.

    I was pretty much raised a JW, but never baptized. Since 1964.

    Never doubted it was the truth while I was out.

    reinstated in 1999

    and 2005....fed up!

    I tried, I really tried!

    can't put a square peg in a round hole. I just do not fit in.

    Studied in 1979

    Baptized in 1980

    Walked away in 1994

    Df'd in 1996

    (My mom was baptized and tried to raise all us kids as JW's. I say 'tried' because my mom had a problem with smoking and she couldn't get rid of some of her Catholic upbringing.

    So I was kind of born around the 'truth', but it wasn't until 1979 when I started to study.)

    Witnessed the Tower's 1975 failure.

    Witnessed the Tower's blame the believers game thereafter.

    Started the Tower fade in the early 1980s.

    So many Tower failures, so little time. :)
