How to Quit Amway
A recent searcher ended up on my blog looking for information on how to quit Amway.
I think that’s a sad state of being brainwashed by the Amway cult that someone has to seek out information on the Internet on how to quit Amway.
The logical response that comes to my mind, in no particular order:
1. stop attending Amway meetings
2. stop listening to CD’s
3. stop buying Amway products
4. don’t renew your membership at year end
To sum it up - Don’t have nothing to do with those bastards anymore. Nothing means NOTHING!
Seeing as how the Platinum or Diamonds used to refer to Amway as a shopping mall on the Internet - stop shopping there. Simple. Its no different than if you get pissed off at Safeway for some reason - you don’t go back. You quit shopping there.
Its an easy thing for me to say who had no interest in Amway, didn’t want to buy their shitty overpriced products, disliked our sponsor and ultimately disliked everyone upline.
Someone like me is going to have no problem quitting these bastards.
As hard as I find it to comprehend, I recognize that there are actually people out there who liked Amway and liked the people in their line of sponsorship. Getting sucked into the Amway cult didn’t happen overnight and quitting won’t be an easy overnight process for them either.
For some people it is a difficult, painful process quitting Amway because of the way they’ve been brainwashed and their thought process has been manipulated by their cult leaders. They’ve been in meetings where their cult leader has ranted about the latest IBO who has quit. Loser, pariah, quitter, etc. They order the cult followers in their downline not to have anything more to do with this person. The IBO knows if they quit they will be the main topic of their cult leader’s rant at the next Amway meeting.
Here’s a Youtube video about former cult member (Moonies) turned therapist Steve Hassan. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CApMzIX46kw
He’s being interviewed by Eric Sheibeler, author of Merchants of Deception and they’re discussing the Amway cult. The links to part 2 and 3 videos are found on this Youtube page. Hassan has written a couple of books that might be helpful to people wanting to leave Amway. It might be worth checking out at the library or purchasing for anyone who is having difficulty leaving Amway.
Amway is no different than any bad habit that one is trying to quit. Some people can go cold turkey. Others have to take quitting in smaller steps until it is no longer something that control their lives.
I send good luck and best wishes to anyone trying to deprogram themselves from the Amway cult and hope the quitting process isn’t too painful. Anyone in your upline gives you a hard time send them to my blog and tell them to leave a comment and I'll take care of them!
