I'd like to thank the moderators who work so hard to make this place the awesome place it is, and all the other members who make great, thought-provoking, clever, humorous (like the thread on how to poo in your boyfriend's place), and deep posts and threads.
Even though I lurked around this place for a long time before registering for an account, this place has provided me with a place of normalacy, where I can come and look around and know that I'm not the only one to experience the frustrations, joys, and pain of leaving Islam, and losing one's family in the process. This place is a community that supports it's members and gives great feed-back on life in general and provides me a place to laugh after a hard day. As I've stated before in some of my posts, that this place literally gives me a chance to laugh and destress after a difficult day, and gives a chance to say things that I wouldn't otherwise be able to, due to not having anyone to talk to about being an ex-muslim or the funny and not-so-funny aspects of Islam that I am still shedding and leaving behind all these years later. I am by no means a new ex-muslim, but still, it's something that still affects many parts of my life, leaving Islam that is and it's good to know that I'm not the only one.
If it wasn't for this forum, I wouldn't have the same opportunities to talk to other ex-muslims. I personally don't know any other ex-muslims other than on this forum, but this forum gives me the place to be able to connect with other ex-muslims which makes life that much easier. CEMB has provided one with a safe place to laugh and let off steam and spend time with other people who really do get what it's like on this road, even though our back-grounds and experiences are all so very different.
