1. How did you first become acquainted with the Church of Scientology?
Bought DMSMH after doing personality test. Was blown away by it.

2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
'Scientific' basis. The 'survive' expalnation in DMSMH made a lot of sense.

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
Lack of confidence and direction

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?
The main thing was the cost of courses/auditing. It didn't align with the stated intentions of the organisation.

5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
I was learning a lot and enjoying the auditing.

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'?
Staff - routed onto sea org but blew while on DPF

7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
I got tired of having no money and suspected that there was a cheaper and easier way to do it. There is of course. A lot can be done solo. See the pilot's selfclearing book or even 'self-analysis', if you want to stick to Hubbard's stuff.

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?
Yes, they should bring down prices so that more people can afford services and stop pretending it's a complete technology. It's not. It's still being improved on in the freezone. They should also stop wasting time and money attacking psychs, critics etc and get back to what they should be doing i.e. training and auditing

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, because better and cheaper tech is available in the freezone.

10. Any additional comments you would like to make?
I think Hubbard was a complicated genius. His fault was that he tried to do too much and never fully figured out how to run actual GPMs. He provided the foundations for others to build on though. See Robert Ducharme's R3X for how dianetics and actual GPMs should really be run, for example.
