1. How did you first become acquainted with the Church of Scientology?
DMSMH

2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
solutions to daily life

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
relationships

4. Did you see, experience, or hear about things that didn't seem right while you were in the Church of Scientology? What were they, and what convinced you to set aside your feelings?
poor living conditions, suspicious deaths, verbal abuse, forced work, contempt of laws (illegal aliens, overcrowding), false emprisonment, constant surveillance and suspicion of members, confiscation of passport to prevent 'blows', interdiction of cell phones, private computers, TV (anything that connect with the outside world), fanaticism, lies and omissions about LRH life, censorship of the church own texts

5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
hope things would improve, concern for my 'total freedom', financial dependency on the church,

6. Were you staff or public? If staff, was it at a mission or an org? Were you ever in the Sea Org or OSA? Which unit? If not on staff, did you ever volunteer to 'help out'?
sea org

7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
yes, discovery that the pretense of standard tech is delusion

8. Do you think the Church of Scientology needs to change some of its practices? If so, what should be changed? How did those practices affect your life?
Definitely, human rights of SO members are violated.

9. If the items you listed in the previous question were changed, would you consider rejoining or staying in the Church of Scientology? If so, why?
No, I doubt it can change its abusive pattern. Anything is justified in their mind because 'the survival of the universe is at stake'

10. Any additional comments you would like to make?
When I joined there was no Internet, real info was hard to come by. They are predators, deliberately pushing people into their ruin. you find out 15 years later that it's like LRH said psychoanalysis was, just a varnish
