1. How did you first become acquainted with the Church of Scientology?
Dianetics book reccemmended to e.

2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
Potential for self improvement.

3. Were there problems in your life that you thought scientology would address?
Divorce recovery, anger, finances.

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?
Very few people seemed to have success in either relationshps or finances. One of the staff members I knew frequently encouraged my room mate to drive drunk to visit her for sexual encounters. Her sister,a staff member, who is the mother of two small children, often had her utilities turned off for late payments. Additinaly, there was constant pressure to raise money to renovate a building that, five years later, is still not occupied.

5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of Scientology?
I didn't stay long!

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'?
Public, I offered to try and begin a children's program.

7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a "final straw"?
After being "caught" reading a technical dictionary, and asking a few too many questions, I had a nasty encounter with the Ethics Officer. I then decided to claim completion of the purif, and leave quietly.

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?
I do not thinking a change in practices is what is needed, there is so very little good to be found in it, and the "tech" does not work. Change is pointless.

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?
N/A

10. Any additional comments you would like to make?
My ex continues to be involved with scientology, and is believed to be working at an org. She left the country without permission with our children under false pretenses. I have successfully recovered the children at great expense. Scientology is far from an ethical practice.
