I was a Mormon for most of my teenage years. I left the church at age 16, when I started studying other religions (past and present) and realized I couldn't find any reason to choose one creed over the others. It took me a couple more years of inquiry to really make up my mind about theology and religion, at which point I embraced the rational view of reality. It was a much slower process than such things usually are for me, but at least I managed to avoid the 'bitter atheist' syndrome I've seen so often.
