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,

  • 5th Day of Quitting Cannabis

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    I am on my fifth day of non-smoking after smoking daily for over 15 years. I'm 35 with a 2 year old and I'm quitting because i want my energy back and to be able to focus on her and my wife too!

    So far it hasn't been easy, with thoughts throughout the day about weed. Even when i first wake up and go into the bathroom I think about it! But I look in the mirror and say " I don't want it, I don't need it!".

    Yeterday i had a business meeting very very close to my dealers apartment. I didn't even go, even though it would have been sooo easy. Once again i said to myself "I don't want it, I don't need it!".

    Telling myself this has helped and I hope I can go many more days/months/years without it.

    I had a bad headache last night and some sweats... but my sleep was much better on night four. I have been having vivid wild dreams, not really nightmares or anything. I actually love the dreaming part again... its almost like a drug in itself!

    Everyone else who is quitting, keep it up! I believe life will be better without the drug in it!

    BTW - great forum, thanks to the admins for putting this up. Reading other stories is a big help!

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    Well done on your decision to quit, you sound really determined, with that kind of determination I am sure you will succeed. The dreams can be pretty trippy, like you say they are a bit of a drug in themselves, but not one that should do you any harm. The sweats are quite normal so are the headaches for some. Thanks for the kind words about the forum, I am sure your life will be better without weed, it may suck a bit short term but in the long term I am sure will be the right choice.

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

      Would love some now...

      Busy day at work, was thinking how nice it would be to sit back tonight and relax with a nice joint... damn this stuff, can't get it out of my head.

      last night was good, although a headache came on around 9 PM. I am working out (have been for last 3 months) to help me get through this...

      Also on a scale of 1-10 (10 being best) my sleep was around a 6. lots of dreams again, but waking up way too often...

      hopefully I don't break down and go to the dealer!

        Hang in there, the sleep can be a bit disturbed for a while and the dreams can be pretty trippy, but it’s all part of the process, things should get back to normal soon.

        Take care and please keep us posted.

          On my 10th Day - it feels great

          Well i made it though my first week and now am on my 10th day... i mentioned on day 6 i really wanted it bad, but haven't looked back since. I just spent my first weekend and years without any the drug and I have to say I am proud. The pride factor keeps me going and I feel confident that the worst days are over in terms of side effects. My sleep is so much better without it and my dreams are still coming. I had a weird one were the end of the world was coming...

          I am also exercising regularily which I think helps alot, especially because I am doing it at night when I ususally would go for a toke.

          To be honest, I am doing lots of things I thought were better on the drug - stuff like XBOX, playing piano and guitar. Let me tell you these activities are just as much fun without weed. I went to see Avatar and movies are just as good too, in fact I might say they are better as you don't get tired mid-way...

          Anyone else reading and thinking of quitting or going through it.... keep it up. Bye bye weed!

            I am on my fifth day of not smoking any weed. It's now Friday and I haven't touched it since Sunday. I've had headches ever since, I haven't been sleeping well, I keep waking up through the night but I think I had a much better sleep last night. I am more concerned about the way I am feeling, I feel as though I am poorly, I can't concentrate at work, I feel sick and I am so tired. It's my day off work today so I have spent my morning in bed but I just feel I want to cut myself off from the world, the weird thing is, I don't feel like having a spliff, I just want to get back to normal again, as quickly as possible! I have smoked it everyday for 7 years but it wasn't just one spliff I could smok 4 in one night after work, sometimes I would get up for work and smoke one on the way there. My mood has completely change, this morning I feel slightly depressed and moody. I just want to be a happy person again.

              Day 5 of quitting weed

              Day 5 I've Been a chronic smoker for a very long time. I'm an angry person straight. My husband says I'm nicer when I'm stoned. What I don't like is It makes me skinny and insecure maybe even uglier. I want body back! In the last 5 days I've sweated, cried, yelled at neighbors, snapped at strangers, had extreme fatigue to insomnia. Last night I was like a creep sneaking around the house checking all my hidey spots for a bud I might have stashed previously. Even considered dredging the bong. I'm disgusted and ashamed of my situation. I thought I was a strong women but I'm not and I'm scared.

                    Day 5 of quitting weed

                    I've been smoking weed for over 10 years on a daily basis. I'm now on day 5 of quitting and would appreciate any advice to avoid relapsing as I'm struggling. I Really want to quit as it's taken over my life, I wasn't smoking it out of enjoyment anymore I was smoking it because I felt I needed it and if I ever struggled getting hold of some I would become extremely anxious and stressed. That's what ultimately pushed me to quit, this is my first attempt at quitting and would like to stick at it but never realised how difficult it actually was. I constantly think about it and I find I'm smoking cigarettes a lot more to curb the craving which to me seems worse. Has anybody actually tried quitting cigarettes and weed?

                      Hi there,

                      I think that a mantra can be a very cool thing. I used to say to myself 'I don't smoke' and it helped. You are right you know. You don't want it, and you don't need it.

                      I know the beginning can be hard, but you will notice improvements and I am here to tell you that even though life with weed can be 'good', life without weed is actually 'better'.

                      It is hard to see it in the beginning, when you are struggling with the initial withdrawal symptoms, but I think your reasons are valid. Children who grow up with pot smoking parents generally fare worse, and can even turn to that substance for comfort for themselves.

                      Life IS better without the drug in it. I smoked for years, but after seven months free. I feel a MILLION times better.

                      Good luck! Exercise, healthy diet, lots of water and distraction is my suggestion to you :-)

                      Cheers,
                      Alice

                        Where is the sandman when you need him?

                        So I'm now into my 5th night weed free after 14 years of smoking it every day (apart from the 9months I stopped when I was pregnant).. and I'm demented
                        I think I've had about 5 hours sleep in total over the past few days.
                        It's really strange though, as I thought I would be itching to roll/smoke a joint but surprisingly that's not the problem at all.
                        The first night it was hard to get my mind off rolling a joint but after the first day was out the way I've not really craved weed at all. I still have a half q in my tray which I walk past and see every day and still no urges
                        But .. I feel absolutely horrendous
                        Apart from the unbelievable tiredness, I just feel really sad and could just stay in bed all day if I could.
                        I could just sit and cry and have no reason for why I'm actually crying.
                        I'm snapping at my 4year old for the stupidest little things and then bursting into tears because I feel bad for doing it then she's crying coz I'm crying and omg I just feel like the worst mother for it at the time, I've just lost my spark if that makes sense? Feel like my heads all over the place.
                        Sounds so silly when I'm writing all this .. but it's so strange.. I thought the weed was making me lazy and irritable but stopping it is making me feel even worse lol.

                        But since I've not been craving it I refuse to give up ..

                        In the words of Hunter S Thompson .. buy the ticket, take the ride ..

                        Just need to strap in and hope the worst is over soon.

                        Good luck everyone 👍🏻

                          Hang in there, 5 days is still very early days, it does get better but does take time, I like Hunter too, try and view it as Gonzo journalism and you can share your real life experience here if you like and when it's all done and dusted I promise you will look back and think that even though the ride sucked it was well worth it to be free!

                          All the best,

                            5th day quitting weed

                            It's my 5th day of quitting weed., I used smoke 10-15 joints a day easy, I'm not having the headaches but the sleep and night sweats are doing my head in!!! Wa going go docs for some diazepam but thought I'm coming off one drug to another.. I don't smoke cigarettes without weed so I must b addicted to them too. I don't crave nicotine I love being stoned but it's got to a point where it's took over my life.. I've been smoking everyday for 8 years solid some day if it was super strong weed I could smoke 7grams (cheese) but now it's getting to me so I've quit cold turkey!!! The sweats are the worst at night through the day I feel sick I've got no appetite at all still after 5 days... I feel I've lost weight cuz of the sweats and I can't eat at all really just abit of soup.. When will I get my appetite back! I'll never smoke tha weed again I've had enough last me a life time! It's so addictive in your mind and the sweat and stuff is tha the with draw off the nicotine?? I will beat my addiction as I've had enough of it ruling my life.. Good luck to very one who's quitting and keep it up..

                              marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
                              Hi there,

                              Congratulations on five days! It sounds like you have some really good reasons for quitting weed, and I promise you that you are doing the right thing. After the initial withdrawals, I noticed more and more positive benefits of giving up. I was happier, had better social skills, more adept at work and uni, and I just felt so much better. It is a good thing to do!

                              I am sorry to hear that the sweating and appetite problems are causing you some pain, but it is all part of the process of getting rid of this substance from your body. I didn't lose my appetite when I quit, so I don't know the answer to your question, but maybe someone else on the forum has talked about when your appetite might come back?

                              It would be hard to give up nicotine at the same time. I gave up nicotine about a year before giving up weed, but you are probably withdrawing from both. You will be okay, if you can just allow yourself to feel a bit crap for a while. It won't last forever!

                              Hang in there. Post if you need to. It gets you into a positive mindset, and if you get bored, read and read about other people's experiences and cannabis addiction.

                              I know that you can do this!! Good luck!
