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 and welcome to the forum.

    Well done deciding to detox I think you are definitely doing the right thing. Although you definitely need to sort out the not wanting to eat situation too, you may have to look into some kind of appetite stimulate I don’t know, although obviously it has to be something that’s safe to take whilst pregnant, I must admit I don’t really know much about that sort of thing, the best thing to do is probably to google it and see what you can find, I would do it for you but I think if I do any more googling tonight I will probably pass out. Anyway whatever the internet says you should probably get some professional medical advice, eating right is going to be really important especially when pregnant. But in the mean time you should probably at least consume some of those complete meal sachets that you mix with milk.

    Anyway I am just about wacked and about to go to bed, but I just wanted to say hi, welcome, thanks for posting and please keep us posted on how it goes, I hope we can be with you every step of the way.

    Take care

      I stopped at 32 weeks

      First congrats on stopping but like any drug you can't quit cold turkey this is part of the reason you can't eat try to excersise in place of smoking help build your appetite. Find something you truly love to eat .... (My happy food is cereal ) no matter if you don't feel like eating, eat as much as you can. Keep a good support system around it helped me to talk to family about the situation I was slowly slipping into depression which was not healthy for me or baby. I was able to over come the withdrawal and depression also keep busy and stay hydrated plenty of vitamins will also help build a appetite. Good luck hope i helped a little.

        I have found eating hardwork > make yourself eat. Make something and just eat it. Don't think about "am i hungry".

        just get get some food on a plate and stick it in the old cake hole.

        Until 5 days ago i smoked every day and as much as i could get hold of since i was 16, I am now 33. You can do it too > I have no will power. I am just sick of being a slave to dik ed dealers and a bloody plant.

        Don' t think about it too much. just make something quick to eat and get it down .

          I'm 17 weeks and just quit today. Prior to, I had been smoking daily as much as I want. I've been a pot smoker for about 12 years. I understand not being able to eat. It's not as easy as some are saying to just stuff your face otherwise it wouldn't be a problem. I'm dealing with vomiting, and no appetite since quitting. Hoping it's just early withdrawal symptoms. Anyhoo, good luck!

            Best of luck with stimulating your appetite. Hopefully it won't last too long. Some people say to try to eat really benign things that can help with nausea, such as crackers, or rice or cereal. Other people say that you should try and get some physical activity to stimulate your appetite, and this article mentions some herbs that can be used to stimulate the appetite: http://www.digherbs.com/loss-of-appetite.html Peppermint tea is probably a good idea!

            Good luck! I think you are doing the right thing.

                    Guilt and smoking

                    Hello! I am 13 weeks + 4 days pregnant and have been a pot (bong) smoker for close to 10+ years.... we have seen baby and heartbeat everything is fine HOWEVER!
                    I am having real trouble giving up for good and the guilt is riddling me but I am also feeling very selfish in the fact that I'm thinking more of myself than the baby! Obviously quitting any habit is hard... but I'm finding this so hard my other half also smokes pot and cigarettes and drinks. I was a heavy heavy drinking prior to pregnancy and quit that cold turkey now it's just quitting this one, I am PETRIFIED and embarrassed to tell me DR! I've been smoking 3 cones a day... which in comparison to what I was prior is a big change for me...
                    Any advice would be great? I'd never forgive myself if something were to happen but it's my own fault! HELPPPPPPP.

                      Hi there,

                      I can understand why you are worried. To be honest, my heart sinks whenever I hear about someone else who is struggling with cannabis addiction while pregnant. Ideally, I guess, it would be good to get your life in order before getting pregnant. However, you are obviously trying to do the right thing and as far as I am aware, every step closer towards the person you want to be is a positive step, no matter what the circumstances.

                      I can imagine that it would be doubly hard if your partner smokes and drinks. People can find it really difficult to quit, if they are surrounded by the temptation to smoke or drink. You have already done the most important thing by quitting your drinking (well done!), and I think that you can quit cannabis as well. You have cut back to three cones a day, so, your withdrawals should not be as bad.

                      Keeping a journal, or posting on a forum like this can help to keep you in the right mindset, and one thing that I would suggest is that once you quit, it is 'not one puff ever' - or 'NOPE'. If you think you can go back to just one puff, then you will slowly but surely get back to your original level of smoking. I know it is hard, but there is no such thing as occasional smoking.

                      What kind of environment do you want for this baby? And what kind of person do you want to be? If you keep those values in mind and consistently work towards them, a little bit each day, you will both grow as a person and provide a healthy home for a child.

                      Sending you the very best of luck. Do check in and let us know how you are going, or if you need support.

                      Lots of love,
                      Alice
