I am in a similar position as you, but I would say that I havent' lost my Faith, I found it!! I do fear that my family and freinds will shun that which they do not understand. My "faith" or religious beliefs are just that.... my own. My religious beliefs have changed and evolved over the last few years and I really don't share them with my family just yet. A wise man, Gandhi I think, said "Be the change you want to see in the world." I think that rings true... live your life in the faith that works for you, at some point someone will notice that it's working well for you and ask about it. That is the point when it will be right for you to share, once you have lived it!

Completely lost faith and a few friends. They way I look at it if they stop being your friend because of one facet of your life they were never a true friend. I am an agnostic/atheist, but there is so much more to me than religion or lack of. If they can't see that then I feel sorry for them. Family is family and my family is one big soap opera so I don't think my lack of religion has anything to do with them. Some talk to me some don't either way it's ok.
