I am done

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by 42yearsin&pissed, Sep 2, 2009.

  1. Hi,

    I was in Scientology for 42 years. Off OT7 now and out. Way out.

    I want to thank Jeff Hawkins for writing up his experiences. His doing so really corroborated some things that I was initially told about uplines' viciousness.

    I figure if I can come out after so many years in, anybody can. I was mostly a public person, only on staff for a total of 13 months.

    I never would have believed my not being a Scientologist at this stage of my life. Circumstances within my family woke me up.

    I'm so embarrassed about not knowing about the human rights abuses, or ignoring them, which is worse.

    I'm not a free-zoner, either.

    I am DONE.
