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. Lying in bed, in a dorm full of strange children quietly crying myself to sleep. Thinking how I was a criminal and my big crime...

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...

Can’t Say’s Scientology Story

I’ve never really spoken about my time in the Church. Only my family and one of two close friends know I was a Scientologist, and that I was married.

Anonmom’s Scientology Story

I was involved in Scientology for about 4 years over 20 years ago. The last year I was in the Sea Org in LA before I escaped. This is based on my own writings from about a year after I left.

You probably know this stuff all too well. In Scientology,...

Angie’s Scientology Story

My name is Angie and this is my account of my schooling in a Scientologist household. My reading problem was not addressed in the beginning and I think that played a major role in me being so behind in school all my life. I was born into a Scientologist family. I can remember from a very young age having trouble reading and comprehending very basic phonics. But learning disabilities don’t exist in the eyes of Scientologists and I must have...

Rod Pearson’s Scientology Story

Thanks for your website. You’ve helped me on my journey out of Scientology. My journey into the church began when I visited a small org. I was quickly signed up for my first Div 6 course. I found this and other courses very helpful, recommended them to friends, and wanted more. Since I didn’t have the money for more expensive services, I was invited to join staff. I was promised the Purification Rundown and auditing. The reg...
