Thanks David and WM!

Welcome! Luke, I would like to help you promote your book by publishing an article in
the Examiner. Just waiting to here from my manager right now about something first?

I want to commend you for your courage and YOU need to know, that by doing what you are
doing, many WILL be helped. Writing and publishing a book is a huge work - - very time consuming indeed.

So, if you would kindly PM me with contact info, I can call you on a Secure Skype line :-)

AND ,..., THANK YOU TIPPING POINT for ALL you do!!!!! {{{HUGS}}} and much LOVE to ALL ||O||

I'm still reading...  but...

Quote from: Have You Told All?
One of the questions that is part of doing end rudiments is "Have you told all?" Indeed I had and I was ready to get the hell out of there.

I'm glad to know where the name of the book comes from.   ;D

auditor: Have you told all?

me: (thinking) yes, there's still a lot more money in my pocket though even though I told the 8 year old I was broke.

auditor: What's that?

me: Nothing

That's actually a true story.  I am kind of a joker although you would not think that by seeing me (so Ive been told at least 1000 times).  When I was a Supervisor at NN there wasnt one person that I ever encountered that I couldnt make laugh on the TR's.  Not trying to toot my own horn or anything (toot toot). 

Next time I see you remind me to tell you about the girl who thought up ketchup packets (as she was using them on her food).

Gotta laugh about it.  I was in a cult for over a decade, I have to.  There are some good memories.  At least I got to sing happy birthday by myself while running graduation in my best Marilyn Monroe voice in front of all the staff and students.  Thats worth a decade in the cult.

I just finished the book.  I took real interest after having been a "student" at Narconon Warner Springs.  Rather Narconon Fresh Start.  I mean Sunshine summit lodge?  You get my point.  It was amazing to read the exact connections to Scientology.  I had learned a lot about Narconon through research however didn't know that much if nothing about Scientology.  I knew something was wrong after being in the program only a few day's.  I was a real addict who needed real help.  After getting out of Narconon and relapsing I was diagnosed with being bipolar.  I remember being at Narconon and being off drugs but feeling like a dry drunk who wasn't getting the one on one treatment I was promised.  I chose to seek treatment was really ready to get help.  Seeing a psychiatrist and psychologist was what I needed.  After being diagnosed and getting the right medications and counseling I finally started to feel better.  I feel all Narconon wanted from me was my money, for me to clean the center, and to help other students through the TR's.  None of what they did helped me at all.  Anyway's it was very well written, I really enjoyed you're story and reading through you're ups and downs.  I'm glad you are helping bringing these things to light so other people and their families don't get scammed. I wish you the best in you're personal life and thanks once again for the very interesting and informative facts.

^^^THIS^^^ - - is so true. Mistakes are quite simply a fact of life; a fact that we're not perfect - - and when we
admit them to ourselves and others, which I personal have done on numerous occasions, I think it gives us a
freedom of not having to hide and cover them.

I still do struggle with forgiving myself and working with a therapist to help me.

VERY nice dedication, Luke {{{HUG}}}

Is this ^^^ clock being shown in a mirrow and says 2:00pm on Thursday - ROFL :)

Your past experiences, including your mistakes are what formed the YOU that is here today. A person who has never made significant mistakes or seen the other side of addiction, will have more difficulty developing empathy with those who have walked these paths. Along with forgiving yourself for your past, celebrate the person you have grown into...one who has taken charge of his health and life, and a champion for people who need help but are mistakenly written off too often. This is a truly remarkable journey you are on.

I am so amazed at you and the others who are on this tough journey and are doing so much to right what is wrong in the face of some pretty steep odds (which are changing thanks to people like you).

I hope this makes some kind of sense.
