Choice’s Scientology Story

I was born into Scientology. I’ve organized my story into blocks of time that represent different aspects of my experience. It feels impossible to write my entire story down – so I will limit it to my strongest memories. 1-5 Years Old My mother found Scientology in her early 20s. She came from an extremely dysfunctional family and the Church promised to make her a better person and fulfilled her desire to help other people. They became her...

DoubleVee’s Scientology Story

Admin Note: Some names changed or shortened to initials. I was born in 1981 to Scientologist parents. My mom had just left the SO, from CCI. I guess she was trying to raise my younger brother and I as if we were in the SO. We had a regimented schedule and strict rules. For example, we weren’t allowed to eat anything she deemed unhealthy, which was just about everything. We went to school starting when we were 3. She didn’t believe in things...

My parents were on services there, and my sister and I would run around the...

Sharone’s Scientology Story

This is part of the time after I came out of the Sea Org, even now part of me doesn’t want to press send, makes me feel vulnerable. But on the other hand I think people should know how Scientology and disconnection messes with a child’s head. I’ll never forget the first night in the assessment centre.

KM’s Scientology Story

I’m not sure how to begin, but my first memory of Scientology was in Hawaii driving up to the mission and thinking how much I loved going to church. Somehow that turned into the landing at LAX and moving into the cadet org on Melrose. Smelling shit in the halls and watching my family torn to bits by the experience. I remember my brother turning off the hot water and not taking baths for what seems like weeks. I remember a mother working at...
