I'm 20 years old, I started to research this path when I was 11 at first purely curious. Then, when I turned 17 I decided I wanted to do something about it and had enough common sense that this will work for me. Of course there are flaws, but every religion has one. I'm not saying this one will save me from when I die spiritually, but it does keep me calm and I don't react as violently as I did before I knew about it. So I've considered myself one for 3 years now, starting on my birthday, October 31.
