    you "easily had $600 in your bank account"?

    $600 was more than enough for two pound of good-qual dope at that time.

    Think large garbage bags full. Two of them.

    Don't forget I had alcohol and chemical bills to cover as well.:coolwink:

    I've been trying to get the time to do this - it's just not working for me with my current schedule.:no:

    There's a whole story of the NarCONon years, working for ApS and trying to set up a WISE thing as a consultant, filling in the gaps of what I've already written - not to mention what's happened since I left the cult and all the intrigue, drama and political wheeling and dealing plus media stuff etc etc.. It's a project I'd love to have lots of time for, but -

    We're renovating our house at the moment and there's a lot of time taken up by that. Plus the kids. Plus working enough to keep the bills covered and then some.

    I'll try - I promise.:yes:
  8. scoots is a pretty good writer

    :thankyou: Scooter! I understand completely. I was just bumping up the thread and letting you know I'm looking forward to what you have to write, as I know I am not alone in this.

    Best wishes, Scoot :bighug:

    Do whatcha can whenya can, Scoots. :coolwink:

    Always LUVED your stuff and your take. It's you and Folks like you that kept me hanging around and keep me checking-in on this place. I've pretty much shot my wad but anything new from you about your story I'm gonna be all ears. :thumbsup:

    You're one of the Folks that helped me open up me can of squirmin' worms. :melodramatic:

    Your opening re-write Narrative speaks to me. We got into Scn half a world and half a generation apart. I'm the older dude with his crop raised and the Big Dipper shining in the night sky...You're the younger stud still nurturing his garden with the Southern Cross aglow in the night sky. Our stories very are different yet so, so similar. :ohmy:

    "We're renovating our house at the moment and there's a lot of time taken up by that. Plus the kids. Plus working enough to keep the bills covered and then some." Been there, done that...Good on ya mate!:clap:

    So many really good people have so much left to contribute to the truth of what was really happening.

    Thank you face. Thank you Scooter. And Thanks to all the many others who have done so much to get the truth told.

    This is one of the most important stories to read here on the forum. I get shivers whenever I see it. So brave of Scooter to reveal what happened. I cried reading it :thumbsup:

    I've just spent all afternoon and evening reading your story and it is truly amazing, when things got insane I left but you stuck in doing what you felt was right time and time again.
    You are a most dedicated spirit, an inspiration to the rest of us, thanks for your story and I look forward to hearing more.

    Yeah, I "causatively" dumped any further obligations for the afternoon of the day I discovered Scooters story.
    He really was one of the big beings I was in awe of when in the church.
    Knowing what a quagmire of stops actually trying to obtain the training and auditing levels the cherch demanded of one, people like him mystified me in their abilities and tenacity.

    On darker days, I can see $cientology as a perfect operation if you wanted to go into a country, scoop up and neutralize a percentage of their youngest and brightest.

    I really fell in love with Scooter, reading hat story.
    And there are lots of others on this site too.

    I might have had to wait twenty years to access this information, but I feel really lucky to have found it.
    Before that, being an ex was pretty isolating. How would you ever explain it to a never in?
    I didn't even try.

    I had to make an account just to reply to this thread.
    I have spent the last week reading this thread from beginning to end. I'm not a scio, just someone that is fascinated by the cult and it's workings.

    However I had to say how well this was written, and to tell you Scooter that I could see this being a very successful book, even in the states, if you ever get time to finish it. I am sure many more besides myself would love to hear more when you are ready. I am sure this was not an easy thing for you to write, and the amount of years you spent on this thread is amazing!

    Congrats on getting out, and continue to enjoy life!:thumbsup:
