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,

  • How long have you cannabis withdrawal symptoms lasted?

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    I thought it would be useful to do a poll on how long people have found their cannabis detox symptoms lasted.

    How long did you experience detox symptoms either physical (i.e. sweating, shivers, insomnia, lack of appetite, ect.) or psychological (i.e. anxiety, restlessness, depression, negative thoughts, loss of pleasure, ect.) after you stopped using cannabis?

    Poll

    I am now comming up to a year without smoking.

    I was going complete the poll but I really think it needs to be broken up into sections such as the ones mentioned in you email

    i.e. sweating, shivers, insomnia, lack of appetite, ect. or psychological i.e. anxiety, restlessness, depression, negative thoughts, loss of pleasure.

    Some of these I aways had, and still do, some went quickly, some lasted a few months, and some I still have to some extent. Given this I am reluctant to complete the poll as I dont think it will give a true outcome - well in my case - and I suspect in most other cases too.

      Hi itt thanks for dropping by it’s good to hear from you again, well done on going a year without smoking I am so pleased for you. The poll facility on the software CannabisRehab.org uses is fairly basic and doesn’t allow you to give that many options, it’s more just a quick simple poll rather than a full survey, I think it allows people to choose from a maximum of 8 options, so it’s not really able to ask people how long they suffered with each individual symptom in one poll, that would require having to offer a lot more options. I could do a number of separate polls that do ask people how long they suffered with each symptom, but marijuana detox can manifest it’s self in a number of different symptoms depending on the individual, so this is just a quick general poll to see how long people have suffered with any symptom or symptoms related to marijuana detox of any kind. If you are not sure whether it’s related to discontinuing cannabis or not then it’s probably best not to answer, but I think a lot of people experience symptoms that they are able to indentify whether or not they are. Thanks for the feedback I will see if others are able or not to vote before I choose whether or not to delete it.

      Take care and one again well done!

        3 months

        hi, i am right at 3 months now, and for me i feel about 95%, most of my original symptoms are gone. Only rarely do i feel "a little odd" that's the only way i can describe it. But for all those at the first couple of weeks, just give it some time it really does get better with time, i know it sucks to hear that i was the same way, i wanted to feel better in a month, but it's different for everyone.

            Marijuana withdraw

            How appropriate that CannabisRehab.org should contact me today, my 38th day without a puff. It has been a year or more since I signed on to the forum. Naturally I lost interest when I resumed smoking. Having been attempting the big quit for 5 years now and having at least 6 episodes where I was quit for more than 90 days (if you read the Institute of Medicine's report to the US Congress carefully you will discover that heavy smokers show canibanoid metabolites in urine for up to 80 days after withdraw so all you heavy smokers who think you can pass a piss test in 30 days heads up). I feel like a resident expert on withdraw but today I more intersted in rehabilitation from the personal problems that influenced me to smoke in the first place.
            Nevertheless to answer your poll. 30 days always brings a major shift in the physical part of the withdraw, 30 days is the magic number for me where the shakes, hot n cold flashes, insomnia, irritability bordering on rage, manic and magical (psychedelic) type thinking, begins to ease. After the 30 day period I feel so at ease the first thing I think when left to my own devices is "I think I'd enjoy a joint now that I feel so much better". As a result of this madness I joined AA to combat my morbid lifelong fascination with getting high. I have discovered that I am prone to alcoholism in my many marijuana withdraw experiments and "the only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking." They drink the way I always smoked so I find more relief from temptation and more faith in staying quit by doing it with others.
            Thanx for the inquiry it was perfectly timed.

              Cannabis detox lasted less than 2 weeks for me (physically). After that I believe everything is mental (psychological). To all that read this stick it out...day by day. It does get easier...trust me. You just need to make a true decision to detox and get over the initial hurdle. For the first time in my life...I'm drug free and am off nicotine, alcohol, and pot. It feels great to be sober. Good luck all!

                Great news, Spartacus. The work continues!

                I am the drug free for 1 year now, and quit drinking as well, not because I was using alcohol in a crazy way, but because I would have probably had a cross addiction problem once I quit marijuana.

                I am still using nicotine, unfortunately, and my caffeine intake has tripled in the year I have quit weed. Quitting smoking is going to have to be my next big change.

                Cheers

                      I would say the symptons lasted heavily till the 3er month. But the desire I guess will stay there as long as we dont fight to find a reason to stay sober that overwhelms the need to avoid...

                          today the 22 day is passing since when I stop smoking, currently I feel strong depression, deep sadness and helpless, I'm slowly losing my patience - I'm tired I'm taking 20mg of Citalopram everyday but week effect :/
                          I'm thinking about increasing of dose - to 30 or 40mg of this drug, I dont know it will help me, but I hope.

                            Hi aphexoid and welcome to the forum.

                            Well done on your efforts with quitting so far, the depression is perfectly normal but should pass. I was wondering how long have you been taking the citalopram, as they can take a couple of months to kick in, if you have not been taking them for long you may have to wait a little while before you start to feel the effect.

                            Take care

                              marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
                              I'm not new here
                              I'm taking Citalopram for 7 years - everyday (20mg), I have general emotional disorders, mainly depression. Today, I will increase dose (next 3 days +5mg =25mg, next 3 days +10mg = 30mg) and I will see then whether such a dose will be enough for me - maximal dose is 40mg.
                              I don't need to take Xanax yet, it is helping me sometimes - but it emotional anaesthetization - yet I feel depression.
