How did you feel after leaving your religion and becoming atheist?

When I left islam and realized all other religions are a load of bull crap and became atheist It was one of the best feeling i had i felt free from guilt and can do anything you want like  accepting facts , sexual desires are ok , eating pork etc as long as your not hurting others. What about you what was how did it feel and what about your story ? Sorry for my bad English since it's not my first language.

    Well I de-converted the same day I was "saved" and I didn't know Atheists existed, I was kept in a bubble my whole life so.... I felt alone.

    I'm really happy you feel liberated and free, it sounds like you feel really happy. Being free from unreasonable undeserved guilt is also a fantastic thing. I'm very happy for you Jaber Al Khayam

      I felt liberated. In scripture Paul claims he had the scales fall off his eyes at conversion. This is exactly how I felt when I realized that I am atheist. What I had believed before was a lie.

        Incredibly free for the first time in my life. It was from Judaism which I found very oppressive. I also self published a little book about it on createspace and suggest everyone do the same. Very therapeutic!!!
