If you feel a post is inappropriate

Hi folks,

Just a quick note in regards to the moderation of the group. Sometimes if I am a bit short on time or if we get a lot of posts at once I may have to just skim the overall gist of the posts rather than reading them word for word before I approve them, also we all have a different perspective as to what is acceptable and thus there may sometimes be the odd post that gets through that you may feel is inappropriate. And while this doesn’t seem to happen very often if there is anything that anybody reads and feels is inappropriate then please feel free to either shoot me a PM or use the contact form to let me know and I will always be happy to take another look at it.

Please keep in mind however that a post does have to be quite bad or harmful to the group as a whole for us to delete it, I don’t like to be too heavy handed with that kind of moderation and try to reserve it for only when it is absolutely necessarily as generally I like people to be able to have their say and most things can be ironed out with dialogue and often we can all learn from it, that said if you feel something is inappropriate like I say please feel free to let me know and I will be happy to take another look.


All the best,

  • quitting weed

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    I have been smoking the drug for about 12years non-stop. I have been trying to detox several ways but I end up coming back. I have tried the cold turkey and end up smoking cigarettes which can be more harmful. I am trying to stop because I want to conceive my first child and I know the drug is interfering. I have been with my man for 2 and 1/2 years and nothing yet. He is supportive and does not smoke at all. When I have tried to smoke less I end up smoking daily again just because I know I have the drug in my possession. It had been a day so far and I am trying not to smoke a cigarette to suppress it. I mainly smoke for stress and depression and I do work-out. The hot baths is a good tip but it still seems like I have a long road ahead. Any help would be appreciated.

    if I were you, I would tackle one addiction at a time...first your addiction to weed, and then cigarettes. Nicotine creates a physical addiction, hence cigarettes are in many ways more difficult to stop than weed. From a personal experience, I've found that cutting down on the drug doesn't work, but it does work with cigarettes: once you can get below 8-10 cigarettes a day, the addiction won't be so strong anymore. In my opinion, as long as you focus on both addictions at once, you're making things much too harder for yourself.

      You could try to set a certain time to smoke. Doing this and sticking to it will give you more confidence and slowly help you ween off pot. I went from smoking only after 10 pm to only smoking every other day. To only smoking once a week until i was confident enough that i could stop smoking.

        3days and counting

        Thanks for your responses. I have stopped now for 3 days and yesterday went ok but today the urge has been greater. I stopped smoking cigarettes in packs years ago now what I do is buy singles. And I can go as long as 2weeks without smoking a cigarette. My biggest problem now is the weed. But what im craving now is a cigarette. The first 2dys i didnt sleep well and was a little snappy and had a non-stop headache. However, it seems like that my detox is not as bad as it has been in the past. I have just been trying to keep busy because I am unemployed. I dont have many friends because our relationships were strained long ago when they decided to go past weed. So I dont have many negative influences outside myself. I am a lone smoker. This post has really helped me want to stop this time because I know I am around others that are trying to do the same.

          Hi and welcome.

          Well done on your efforts so far, I know it’s not easy, some people do feel the need to smoke more tobacco when they quit, especially if they mix it in with their weed. There’s two ways to approach it, you can either try to deal with quitting everything at once, or not worry about your tobacco use and just focus on not smoking weed. Interestingly enough I read one report about people quitting the drug that said, half the people found it easier to continue smoking tobacco and the other half didn’t, so it may well depend on the individual.

          Keep up the good work, take care and please keep us posted on how it goes.
