RE: Any recovering catholics here???
The first step was I stopped going to church. I would go once and a while with my parents for the holidays. But once I moved away for college I didn't go any more. Felt guilty for a little while but I didn't worry to much about it. Because I believed I had a personal relationship with God. It wasn't till much much later I stopped believing in god.

It wasn't that big a deal when I left. Once I went threw all the acts of conformation my mother said I was old enough to decide for myself.

A) I read the bible.
B) I learned about how it was put together.
C) I thought about it.
D) I chucked it (catholicism).

For me, it was 10+ years later that I realized I was an atheist. The road was long but definately worth it

The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."

My sister in law and mother became born again Catholics, that did it for me.

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

Fully recovered...as of about 30 years ago.

I think Catholic school played a large part in turning me away from The Church. Too much not practicing what they were preaching for my taste.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF
