At Last, Some Relief!
Understand that you are now a non-participant in Facebook, your friends will not be able to send you any invitations or to tag you (oh what joy!); and you will not want to login into Facebook, as by doing so, you will reactivate the account.

Enjoy your temporary relief! ;)
And while you bask in the bliss, read this hub http://hubpages.com/hub/Delete-Facebook-Account and especially note steps 1 and 2 of Preparation to give you an idea of what you need to prepare for, should you decide to nuke your Facebook account. :)
