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,

  • Just what I needed

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    Hey all
    Well I guess I will start off by saying that I have smoked pot for 30 years now. I think CannabisRehab.org is what I need to help me quit the habit. I've read a lot of your post and I am happy and sad that I have found people that feel the way I do. I have a lot of good things in my life so I hope that quitting does not bring on depression. I'm not a very good writer so bare with me if I don't always make sense.

    Almost everything I do I have always thought I needed to get high before I do it. Lately every time I get high I hate the feeling I get. The stupid thing is that I do it any ways. The money has never been a problem and It seems it's always easy to find. I've tried to detox before and have had these terrible vivid dreams. I hope this go's away soon. I hear people talking about not eating when they smoke, But for me it is just the opposite. I think I would be at least 20 pounds lighter if I didn't munch every nite. One of my goals is to loss weight. Right at this moment I have no desire to smoke. I just hope this last. It's only been 2 days so time will tell. This time I threw away all my pipe's and one hitter's. I know I need to do this for myself and for my Family. One of the hard parts is that most of my family won't even know the struggles I'm going through because I hid my habit from most of them. I'm sure I will have a lot more thing's to say, But for now I'll leave it at that.

    So glad I found CannabisRehab.org and Thanks for sharing your stories.

    hi 420nomore,

    It's good you threw away everything, because in weak moments it's the only thing that separates us from starting again. I feel for you when you say that it's hard going through that without people knowing. The lone warrior scenario is a hard one to follow, which is where CannabisRehab.org comes in handy. I wouldn't say that quitting bring depression, but it surely brings instability, hopefully the downs won't be too drastic. Taking it one day at a time is the best way to handle it.

    take care

      Hi 420NoMore welcome to the forum.

      Well done on your decision to quit. I too got to the stage where it was more unpleasant to smoke than not, definitely time to give up I think. The vivid intense dreams can be a bit of a head screw, but they do pass. Throwing away all your smoking stuff is a good idea, it helps remove the temptation.

      I am glad you have found us and I hope we can offer you the support you need.

      Take care, thanks for sharing and please keep us posted on how it goes.

      Good luck!

        Thanks for your support. I have to admit, there is time's it seems like it is going to be easy, Then all of a sudden I get the urge to go sit on the back porch (Thats where I did most my smoking). I have been looking for something like this for a long time and I am glad I finally found you all. I will keep you posted.

          5 days and still no smoke. I can say that I am not sleeping and what little sleep I do get I dream to much. I just hope it gets better soon , Because I don't think I could take this for a long period of time. I still do not have the urge to smoke, I just keep telling my self that if I did smoke I would have to start this all over and I really wasn't getting that much enjoyment from smoking anyways. If this is how I was going to be forever I would have to start again because it sucks to not have any good sleep. I'm use to 6 or 8 hours of peaceful sleep. This 2 or 3 hours a nite of tossing and turning is tough. I'll post again in a couple of days and will see how things are going then.

            Dude, dont give in.

            Ive been smoking green for about 15yrs. Nearly everyday. I have been trying to detox for about 2 years. the sleep thing that you talk about does go away, i promise. You never realise how little you dream until you quit.

            Im on about day 8 at the moment and I think this time ive done it. the best I have done so far is 3 weeks but for some reason my addiction convinced me that a good reward would be to get high... rediculous!

            About two weeks ago I was at tbhe point were I thought I would never be able to detox and I would constantly try but constantly fail. Then i read an article on Thomas Edison. It talked about his lighbulb invention and how he failed nearly 3000 times before he was successful. He said he never got down or felt liking giving up because every failure was a chance to learn more.

            Thats when i realised thats what i am... a lightbulb. Everytime I failed was a chance to learn more about myself. And as long as I dont give up and i keep trying I will succeed.

            What im saying man is that you should feel hugely proud of yourself for even trying to quit. atleast your not just gonna lie down and and take it. you've taken a stand and thats massive. If you believe, you will succeed. It hard. The problem is that i absolutely love getting high. But its bad, it really is just bad.

            eevrytime you think about it just try to block it out, your addiction willl try to give you all sorts of reasons and justifications for why you should have one last hit but its all bullshit. You dont need it!

            I know this is a rant but its better than smoking a joint.

            Good luck

              Hi 420 i know how you feel and i would like to say it is going to be easy from now on but like you i smoked for over 30 years as well today is week 9 clean for me and it has been hell for the past 6 weeks. But i think i have finally turned the corner getting up to 6 hours sleep a nite still having crazy dreams but not as bad; depression has eased and i don't feel like smoking. So just hang in there try to get as much exercise as you can i walk 10km twice a week and they are the best nites of sleep i get. I know it doesn't sound good but the hardest part out of all of this you have allready past and that's wanting to give up so hang in there and just take it one day at a time all the best i wish you well. Dale

                Week 9, Wow that is great. I'm actually looking forward to when I can say that. Thanks for every ones support. This really does help. I am a fence contractor and do lots of manual labor during the day. I am hoping this helps with the sleep problem. Plus it has been over 100 degrees here for the last few days , So this should wear me out also and help with the sleep.


                Evas.D.A,
                I know what you mean about trying to detox for a couple of years now. I've tried many times , But this time I have found CannabisRehab.org and I really think it is helping. Even though I do not know any of you I still don't want to let any one down, Including myself. Thanks again everyone.

                  well done choosing to detox and hangin in ther-ur right about not wantin to let anyone down-even tho we'r all strangers we'v got the same problem-so we each know the bad side to smokin pot-good choice on deciden to quit-its tough for the first month but just hang in ther-

                  brilliant news dale that things are gettin a bit better-9 weeks is excellent-endless nights of not gettin a good sleep is crap-but i bet u feel better now without the smoke-so wen sleep comes back u'll feel even better-nice one!!

                    Well it's been 10 days and still no smoke. I actually think I have this thing beat this time. I know it's still soon, But I would like to keep a positive outlook. The biggest test I had so far was last weekend. I went camping and atv riding. This was my most favorite time to smoke. I have to say I didn't even miss it. I still have restless nights, But they are getting better. I had to buy sleeping pill's for a couple of nights because I just wasn't sleeping. I am not going to get hooked on these, It was just for a couple of nights to get my head back on straight. I can't say that I feel a lot different yet, But maybe my head is a little more clear. The dreams have settled down some also. I will keep everybody posted and I still enjoy reading everyone's own stories. Good luck all.

                      Well done 420nomore I am so glad to hear how well you are doing, everybody’s experience with quitting is different, some really go through the mill and others don’t seem to find it too bad, quitting marijuana is a bit funny like that, when you read the posts on CannabisRehab.org you find that peoples experiences can vary significantly, different drugs do react with the individual chemistry of peoples bodies differently and we all have a different susceptibility to getting addicted to different things. But I am glad to hear that you are one of those who isn’t finding it that bad, apart from a bit of insomnia perhaps which is very common.

                      Anyway keep doing those things you enjoy, it’s a really important part of giving up, keep up the good work.

                      Take care and thanks for sharing.

                        So in 2 days it will be 3 weeks. I had a couple of weak moments , But I did not give in. I was wondering if someone can tell me how long will this take to get out of my system. I am thinking of applying for a different job , But I need to pass a drug test. Remember I have been smoking for 30 years every day. This was one of my motivations for quitting. I want a better job. Thanks for your help, Again.

                          I believe the time required to flush he system is 3 months but it is still tracable in the hair for some time longer.

                            Hi 420 like i said day 18 it hit me realy hard it is now 11 weeks and i still have my doubts if i can do it like you smoking dope has been a part of my life for 37 years my wife still smokes 24/7 and everyone i know smokes. At the moment i feel very isolated and alone and very depressed it would be so easy just to light up but i know thats the easy way out i don't want to let myself or my kids down. All as i can say i know i am doing the right thing it just doesn't feel like it yet and like you i would like a better job and it will not happen if i'm stoned all day every day like i was. So things may get a bit tougher for you from here on in you have done realy well so far i hope you can overcome the temptation and all the best. Dale

                              Week 3 and still bad insomnia. This is the worst part for me. I am use to getting 8 to 10 hours of good sleep. Now if I get 3 or 4 I am doing good. And these 3 or 4 hours are only because of the sleeping pills I am taking. Good luck every body and hope you are not having the sleeping problems like I am.
