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.

    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!!!

         Jaber, ironically as an atheist for the first time in my life I have what religion promised. Peace. I have never been more happy or comfortable in my skin. I can now see clearly what is right and wrong. I never worry about offending some unseen God by doing what is natural, or by committing some thought crime, or committing some offense that I am not aware of. Yes peace.
