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,

  • To Much Time - Quitting Cannabis

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    I have been up since 9am and when i smoked I use to be able to sleep in all the time. I am just having a hard time thinking of things to do to occupy my time. I sit here and dwell a lot which does not help me addiction. I also find in the peace of mind in not being high, not worrying about some unreliable drug dealer and whether or not he will come through. I guess I have to get use to this.

    i feel you

    hey man, how far along are after quitting? I am struggeling too after 5 weeks of figuring out what to do with my time but I am making strong changes in my life to adjust. I am starting by moving back to from college to get away from all my smoking friends. Also, start just getting out and socializing more it really helps. When you hang out with friends you can forget about smoking as much and start focusing on friends instead of your addiction. Thats the best advice I can give you as far as conquering the boredom. Do not sit around and dwell on it and it will become much easier to overcome.

      Hi john lennon and welcome to the forum.

      I know you don’t know what to do with the time at first, not smoking is a huge shock in so many ways and leaves you with far too much time on your hands, but it will pass sooner than you think and soon it will feel just as normal not to smoke. The best thing you can probably do is try to keep as busy as possible, the time will pass much faster the more you keep your mind occupied.

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

        We know that marijuana alters your perception of time. That's why when you're high, a few minutes seems like an hour and the day seems to endlessly drag on. When you sober up, and regain your mental faculties, time seems to speed up and next thing you know you're looking at the clock in amazement about how much time has ticked by virtually unnoticed. Amazing how fast 4 pm comes around. I think alot of this has to do with your increased positive frame of mind. Thinking speeds up and time perception returns to normal. It's such untruism that drugs help you pass time. In fact, they drag time to an almost stand still because the drugs do not really occupying your mind but rather they just dull it.

          I'm sorry, but we obviously have completely different experiences of smoking. Time goes way faster when smoking. It's only whenyou notice time that it slows down, and you certainly notice time more when your not smoking. Anyways, iv been smoking daily since I was 16, but when I turned 19 I got off it and stayed off it for a year nd a half. The only trick to staying off the drug Is keeing occupied, all though this is alot harder then you think, especially if youv been smoking for a while. You forget how to be recreational without it! Luckily when I got off it (iv started again and now quitting, again!) I had a girlfriend who didn't smoke. This is by far the easiest way to do it! In terms off getting used to not smoking, it's tough. And it won't get better just with time, hence me smoking again. What you really need are new friends, or for current friends to also quit. Then try new things, it's the only way you'l find out what you like. Go fishing, pick a night a week and play football wit your mates, start learning a musical instrument, join a sports club, go drinking in pubs (easiest way of meeting new people!) but you'l have to be outgoing. Eventually you'l find a new ruetine that your happy in and won't miss the smoke. Best thing aswelll is to stay occupied so you stay tired. Best of luck neways!

            Quitting *anything* is not an easy task, pat yourself on the back to start with for being able to realize there was an issue and you are working to correct it. Find a better way to spend your time. Are you in school? Do you have a job?

              Obviously everybody is going to have a different reaction to a drug. Nobody is going to react the exact same way. For me, time could seem faster or slower depending on my mood when I was smoking. I really hope you continue doing well with your recovery.
