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. I don’t tell people, because frankly, it sounds too weird to talk about. I’ve never spoken about it out of fear of retribution, fear of hurting those I admire who are still in the CoS, and the fact that I still believe in the effects of overts and natter and the fact that I really...

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.

I was promised the Purification Rundown and auditing. The reg...

Melissa Miller’s Scientology Story

I was about 13 years old when my parents’ marriage seemed to be falling apart. A friend talked with them about Scientology. One day, one of my parents left home, then returned after being away for weeks. Then almost immediately after that parent’s return, the other parent left and did not return until months later. It was a very confusing time. My siblings and I did our best to maintain a normal schedule with school, homework, chores, etc....
