If you're a reader who flipped-out*, as Blue Fringe might put it, you're cordially invited to compose a guest post. Tell us what it was like after 5 or 6 years. Did you have any regrets or second thoughts? Did you find it difficult to avoid your old friends and behavior patterns? Did the ferver ever subside? &c.
Flipped-out (flĭp-ed out)
1. Intoxicated with religion to the point of impaired mental faculties.
2. Overcome by strong religious feeling or emotion esp. as an 18 or 19 year old, after having spent a year or two in an Israeli seminary: "Barry's so flipped-out he carries a sefer in his hand wherever he goes - even at the movies!"
