My friends call me: Kyle
Background: Extreme Devout Mormon
Degree of deconversion pain: Devil's Asshole, it's been rough coming out as an Atheist
Type of support offered (practical / empathetic / sympathetic):The atheist community and exmormon community have been great to me. The Mormons in my life are well...no longer in my life. That was their decision.

We've had a lot of new members since this thread was created so ... just giving it a little bump.

Don't feel obliged to add your name but, y'know, the more the merrier.

RE: Looking for deconversion advice?
Well, if the purpose of this is to invite a 1 on 1, I am willing.

My friends call me: Adrian
Background: atheist since birth
Degree of deconversion pain: N/A personally. It's more like the more I learned about religion, the more pained I was about its pervasive existence.
Type of support offered: PMing is fine, I can do Skype messaging, but I would only get on Skype by request. Skype video is possible but unlikely.

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.
