May I just say kudos to you!

It will be a difficult conversation to have (in depth) with your friends and loved ones, many (some) will honestly just not understand or want to hear most of what you are saying and will attribute your nonbelief to "you're just confused about god".

My personal advice would be; as long as you stay honest with yourself, continue to read books of interest/learning and become a bit more comfortable when it comes down to "question time" with them. This way, you can try and keep the dialouge open for those who may feel as you, but fear asking.

It can be a rough ride, but as long as you know you are not alone, you'll be fantastic!

Good luck:)
