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,

    Hi I wanna be normal it’s great to hear from you again.

    It’s now pretty well recognised that there can be a link between using marijuana and anxiety and while I can’t say for certain I would not be surprised if there’s a connection to your marijuana use and your anxiety. There was with mine and if this is the case then the only thing that is going to make it any better is quitting the pot, I know you are not using much I wasn’t either towards the end, but if you are experiencing a mental health problem I have heard even a small amount can aggravate it or set it off. I know you quit before and was in a pretty bad way, but it can take some time to recover, one person posted recently that their psychologist, who had seen many cases of people experiencing mental health problems as a result of using marijuana, said that some people it even took up to a year and a half after quitting before they recovered psychologically.

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

      You have to quit. One a night is still an adiction. specially if you have to use it for a specific task or pleasure. I found that my math abilities were slowly but surely destroyed. You may feel more creativity and open minded when you use, but your abillity to take those ideas into reallity is also impaired.

          cor blimey mate i dont know if thats the answer to your problems having a missus and kids would send your anxiety levels through the roof! lol. I know what u mean though, most people are busy during the day and when it comes to the evening if your not occupied its easy to fill your boredom with drugs or drink

            I suppose it depends what the cause of your anxiety is and as with anything psychological it can often be a rich tapestry. Even if marijuana isn’t the main cause of your anxiety it may be aggravating it significantly, the only way to tell is to stop doing it for a significant length of time, according to one persons Dr who posted recently it can even take up to a year and a half, before the psychological effects pass. Without doing this you have no way of knowing which is responsible for what.

              im gonna sort it out

              i think my anxiety stems from a long time,ive been single for a long time and not found the right person i havent even found the wrong person ha ha ha,i hate being lonely and on my own,my life consists of going to work,comming home,dinner,shower,spliff then bed,im 38 and cant see any hope of meeting anyone,im good looking,nice personality and successful and fit!!!.i find when im down i just look forward to my night time spliff which lifts my spirits again,i know i need to go out there and find what im looking for and be settled within myself(which im not)im always thinking "when will i settle down and find mrs right" which i think has caused my anxiety for a long time but only recently has it become stronger and taken over my life,ive been to counsellors which are very good and have helped.but i find when ive smoked my spliff all my questions have been answered and i get good thoughts which will help me out i.e. go out and socialise,join a dating website etc...etc,i think im handling this situation ok but will take time and will get better and once ive found my mrs right i wont need to smoke the drug anymore...hopefully!!!

                WATCH OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                YOU SAID:
                "i think im handling this situation ok but will take time and will get better and once ive found my mrs right i wont need to smoke the drug anymore...hopefully!!!"

                I am no psicologist as I said I am an egineer and I have only been off pot for 18 days! and I shouldn't give advices but thinking a misses right or anything exterior to your own mind will make you not need to smoke is wrong.

                I thought I needed a woman that wouldn't accept pot and that having her around would require so much time I would gradually leave pot. WRONG ANSWER. Having her demand so much of my time. Asking for attention and so on, made the situation really bad. Cause I started hidding from her to go smoke witch in turn made it worse cause I would come home and she would demand attention when all I could do was veg out in front of the TV.

                Sincerly dude... IF you wanna find a Gal invest your time socializing out, not smoking in.... A girl will not fix a problem she probably will make it much worse and it will not be her fault it will be yours!

                Also if you have so much anxiety and you relate the smoking to the jacking off you just might have some sexual issues.... no harm intended.

                Hope you dont take this advice as an intromission it just as my sincere advice....

                  Hey guys, let’s keep it supportive, uppercase is sort of considered shouting, anyhow it’s true that sometimes what we think will magically be the solution to all our problems often isn’t, a lot of our problems come from within and until we solve them we often don’t make any progress, that can often be the reason we are using drugs in the first place. I am not saying that finding a wife won’t improve things, but it may not be the only reason for your anxiety, I know when I was using marijuana one of the main causes was the chemical effect it was having on my brain, it was a chemical thing caused by the marijuana and I still think that could be a contributing or aggravating factor with you. Anyway we often say to ourselves if I had that I wouldn’t do this, but it’s often not until we stop doing this that we get that, so maybe you will have to get yourself right first which may involve quitting marijuana, before you get the other stuff that you want.

                  I know when I used that last thing I wanted to admit to was that marijuana was aggravating my mental health, that would mean having to not smoke marijuana and I think a lot of pot smokers do the same, they look for anything else to blame that doesn’t involve having to give up, that’s just classic drug habit denial, but sooner or later I realised I could not go on like this and had to face the reality of what it was doing to me. It’s now starting to be recognised that marijuana can play havoc with your mental health, like I say it’s not until you spend a considerable amount of time off it that you will know whether this is the case for you.

                  Take care

                    thanks for the advice mate no offence taken any advise is appreciated,i dont really come home in the evening and get stoned,i only have a spliff at bed time which is around 10pm-11pm,i dont like being stoned when im working or out and about with family /friends or socialising or even just chilling,i think it is a sexual thing i love being stoned and masterbating or having sex(which i havent had for a while)if i had a misses i would be happy that ive got some company and my mind would be settled a bit,it may not be the answer but it would help,maybe i do have sexual issues i havent been getting much action and am very frustrated as i do like sex and am virile,

                      I was only smoking a very small amount towards the end, about a similar amount to you, but it was still causing me anxiety and paranoia, I have since read that if marijuana is causing you mental health problems, even a very small amount can have a significant effect. I know how you feel I really looked forward to my bed time spliff, but in the end I realised it was just doing me more harm than good, personally I think the best thing to do is just to reduce it gradually over a five week period, smoking about %20 less each week until you get to the stage where you finally quit. Now it will require some discipline and some people do find cold turkey easier as they struggle to stick to doing this, but either method will require will power, different methods suit different people I guess.

                      Take care mate, we will be with you every step of the way.

                        thanks for the advice guys,ive done some real deep thinking to find out my anxiety and it does stem from being lonely because im always wondering when id settle down and have kids and use to get down over it and then start blaming myself thinking i wasnt good enough,and started thinking i was ugly(which im not) and too short for any women to like me and kept doubting myself just lost my confidence, and smoking the drug just aggrvated it im gonna work on it and get rid of my demons,if giving up the drug helps then i will,i only smoke a tiny amount so hopefully this time around it shouldnt be bad..ill keep you guys posted..

                          i been thinkin about ur story all day-thinkin thro different angles to look at it-ur in a tough spot-because u'll actually find it quite hard to cut down-its like ur at the edge of freedom-hard to get any closer-and yet ur still smokin pot-try to do it a night and leave it a night-then ur automatically smokin half of wat u wer-then leave it two nights-ur down to a third-i mean do this process over the period of a few weeks like Rehab Admin suggests-

                          ur other issues re women and a life fulfilled are more difficult things to sort out-i'v many friends in the same boat as u-i feel for them-cause i'v 2sons and i know how much that means to bein a man-dont write urself off dude-i know it can get depressing and demoralisin wen ur brain leads u to thoughts that u just cant control-love, needs, happiness-but its hard to move on with ur life wen u feel that ther's always something in the background that makes u annoyed with urself-the smoke-wen u think that i need to sort this out and cant it can make one feel inadequte, insecure, totally unsure of urself-we can look around at others and ask ourselves why not me-women are great but they'll not fix ur problems-find a women to love and u'll still have th issue of ur smokin to bother u-more than that-i think because of this its holding u back-holding u back from gettin the most out of life-it can be done dude-u can do it-u gotta know why ur doin it-

                          stop smokin now and ur problems arnt fixed-but if u look at life over a 5 year period then things can change so much in that time-u'd only be 43-ask a 43 year old man would he like to be 38 and he'll take ur arm an all-

                          ur in a routine-orgasms on smoke are brilliant-but its a bad routine-routines are hard to break-but can be broke-think about it-have u ever seen young frankenstein-he goes into the monster and tells the rest no matter wat dont open the door-2 seconds later he's cryin to get out-wat do i mean?come up with ur plan and stick to it no matter wat and u'll win-it wont be easy-if u feel that this is ur only comfort ur brain'll try to tie u in knots to get wat it wants-that single joint holy grail's wat the problem is-fix that and the rest'll fall into place-good luck dude-

                              find your niche

                              hey dude!
                              look you need to really chill off this idea that a woman is going to save your life have a read through these sites if ive lerned anything finding the right person ended up spiraling out of control one way or another!!

                              its like those poeple who have babies to save their marriges which is highly selfish and irresponsible!

                              just get out of the house more, pick up some hobbies, talk to people express yourself! art, camping, surfing whatever your niche is get into it and dont stop! its very soothing trust me im a horse rider myself and its really helped me get into somehting that i am passionate about to put all my emotion into it and youll end up learning alot more about yourself than you think you may know.. Tonkas point is valid aswell

                              have you ever considered the joint before sexual experiences could have something to do with some phycological issues that you may have experienced.. or more than likely the anxiety has affected your ***** and by having a joint before you do anything helps to keep your mind on track and to relax.. pots always been good at concentrating sme of your "creative" side for example artists





                              JUST dont depend on another person to save you life like that! its not fair on the person or on you mr!
