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,

  • day #2 quitting marijuana

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    today is my second day after many many many attempts to detox smoking.
    i have horrible cravings and am isolated from the world.
    i know support helps but i have none.
    i feel like i am caving in and am so close to smoking!
    i know that smoking has majorly had a negative effect on my life but it wont stop me.
    i also know that if i never quit,my problems will only worsen.
    i have all these dreams but something inside tells me getting there is impossible.
    i have locked myself up in order to not smoke and am feeling horrible.
    i dont want to do.
    please help.

      Just know that if you do go back to smoking..
      Things will only be worse..
      and WHEN you do decide to detox smoking again..
      YOU will be ALOT more angry with yourself..
      Trust me I KNOW, I'm on Day 3, it's hard, but you have to fight it !
      Think about how much better your life will be if you stay clean AND achieve all of the goals you plan on achieving

      YOU HAVE TO FIND ACTIVITES TO DO AT THE VERY MOMENT YOU WANT TO SMOKE, it can be anything, as long as it takes your mind off smoking, good luck, know YOU are not alone at all!

          Hi betterlife welcome.

          I know smoking’s easier in the short term, but you have got to think long term mate. You are not alone there are so many out there in the same boat, I hope we can offer you some support. The cravings will get better, it’s just something that you have to go through, but it won’t last for long. I know the isolation sucks, I was in the same position myself, I just wanted to shut myself off from the world. It didn’t get better until I quit. Well done on your efforts so far.

          Take care, hang in there and please keep us posted on how it goes.

                It's hard for sure. I just cleared the week mark. I also feel like I want to give life a chance without it and I know it's going to take a while for the withdrawal to clear up. It's not accurate for me to say right now that this is what life is like without it. It's just what life is like in withdrawal. Curiosity in this regard is my strongest motivation. Every other motive my brain can just dance circles of justification around, but my brain can't deny that the only way to see what life is like without it is to stay off and away from it for a fair time past the fog lifting. This rehab group has helped, even when I'm just reading and not posting and even when I just navigate to the page and think in frustration, "I'm not even going to read anything because I'm so sick and tired of spending so much time thinking about (not) smoking!" and close the window pretty quickly. I still know all the other contributors are out there and that my struggle is not as unique and special as it can feel in the worst times.

                        Day 2

                        I'm on day 2 after 15years of smoking. I must admit I am wondering if I can do this. I don't know whether anyone still reads these posts but what I can say is that reading your stories makes me feel stronger and more positive and hopeful about staying clean. I am doing this for a drug test in a couple months.....but I too want to see what life is like without it. Everything seems to piss me off right now and I sweat myself to sleep last night. Cheers to all of you fighting the same fight I am and thank you for sharing and making me feel as if I am not alone.

                          Traffic to our site does fluctuate but the stats show plenty of people still read the posts even if there are times when there are not as many posts, also I think due to the nature of the subject often more people will read than post but rest assured people are still listening.

                          You are going to feel very pissed off and probably for a good while and unfortunately I don't think there is an awful lot you can do to avoid it, it's just one of those having to let your system readjust type things, just make sure you get as much exercise as you can force yourself to get if possible as this will often help to make you feel better and heal faster. Also eat right as much as you can and drink plenty of water. Try and keep busy to prevent boredom and feel free to share here whenever you feel the need. Good luck with your rehab!

                          All the best,

                              Day 1

                              I'm a 26 year old female and have been smoking for about 8 years, with a break of about 1 year and a half when I was pregnant and sometime after giving birth.

                              It wasn't until maybe 6 months ago that I began to feel like it was an addiction. I've tried to quit many times, but haven't been successful. Usually lasting only about a day or 2 sober. Well this time I really want to detox. Smoking pot has began to affect my personal life. I've been smoking in the morning before work, during lunch, after work, and then a couple more times after work.

                              I have a 4 year old and she is the sweetest. Every time I want to stop smoking I get so irritable that I snap at her. I feel horrible about it so immediately go buy some weed. Which is why my detox has only lasted a couple days.

                              It's day 1 and I feel good psychologically, but not physically. Already started with the anxiety, irritability, chills, and loss of appetite. I really am looking forward to quitting for a while. I love weed and I don't want to stop forever. I just want to go back to not being so dependent on it like I used to be. I would only smoke before bed and on the weekends. An eight would last me a whole month. Lately I was down to half an ounce in a month. It has also been affecting my bank account.

                              I found this forum and I think this will really help me get over this addiction.
