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

2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
OT abilities

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
maybe a little shyness

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?
Not at first. Everyone was very nice and seemed very capable. Then I joined staff and at first that was OK. I didn't get much sleep or have much free time though. I was totally in hook, line and sinker. I was a very good scientologist. I did everything right. I would just laugh if someone said I was brainwashed. I would say if this is brainwashed I'm all for it. Then I went for training at an SO org. The living conditions were horrible. I won't go into more details. Other people have described all this. It's all true. I didn't like it but we were clearing the planet and that was all that mattered. The people who write in to this website who are still in Scientology are brainwashed and they don't know it. They see the outnesses and they don't do anything about it because they don't want to lose their bridge. They're scared to say anything. What if they got declared? All of their friends are Scientologists. They would have nowhere to go. They couldn't survive in the 'wog world' because they don't know how to do anything in the wog world. Also, they have either spent a lot of time or money or both and told lot's of people how wonderful Scientology is and how much it's helped them. If they got out, how would that look and they can't admit to themselves that they have wasted most of their life on a con. They're the top 1% of the top 1%. How could they have fallen for a con game?

5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
See #4. I kinda got carried away there.

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 not SO

7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
no. no final straw. I just needed to have a life. And no I'm not a stalled clear and no I didn't have a bunch of O/Ws. People who are young and get into Scientology because of a ruin they want fixed just don't realize it can get fixed with age and experience. You don't need to suffer for years and spend lots of money. All the answers are in you and you can find them on your own. If this isn't the case, there are many things that could help you. Scientology is not the answer.

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?
They need to change all of their practices.

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?
I will never ever ever be involved in Scientology ever again.

10. Any additional comments you would like to make?
no. Thanks for your time. I hope this helps someone.
