Whether it's a particularly creepy church or a multi-level marketing scheme, it's not always easy to recognize that you've joined a cult until it's too late.

But some people realize it in time to leave. A recent Reddit thread asked former members of cults what made them realize it was time to go. Here are 16 of the most interesting responses.

1. Pressuring members to quit their jobs is a red flag.

I never joined, but I attended a church for a while that turned out to be a cult. The moment that really made it clear: I told someone I wouldn't be there that coming Sunday because I had work. She asked "Do you really need that job?"

I don't remember this church's name anymore. It was something very common and innocuous sounding. They weren't a full-blown cult, as far as I know, because I don't think they cut people off from the rest of the world. But they were definitely a small-fry cult. - Marise20
