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,

  • Whats your story with marijuana?

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    Just thought I'd write down what I've been going through as I've heard that can help with getting things into perspective. I would also like people to feel free to share their stories regarding their struggles with marijuana.

    I am on day 7 of quitting, feeling pretty down and so I just did a google search regarding the symptoms of withdrawal. I was supposed to go to a University lecture today but while I was making breakfast I got such terrible nausea and then was vomiting for quite a while :-( I've been smoking for about 6 years but the past 3 or so years I have been smoking nearly everyday.

    My main reason for quitting at this point in time is that smoking the drug has actually stopped being fun, it is not enjoyable, just stops me from actually facing reality and living the fantastic life that a girl in her 20s should be experiencing. Even though I only quit a week ago, for the 2 weeks before I had started feeling really depressed, crying all the time and honestly just could not stand myself and was starting to wonder why anyone even enjoyed being around me. I am lucky to have such a supporting and amazing girlfriend who is a very calm and rational person, always here for me and trying to cheer me up.

    She doesn't know how much I have been smoking and I hate to feel like I am lying to her for something as stupid as a drug :-( I've been so angry, snappy and moody towards her recently and I don't want to be that person, her and I both deserve better than that. I dont want the drug to be a part of my personality.

    I think I really clicked that I should probably stop when I actually considered travelling a long distance to score the drug from a guy I had never met... It scared me honestly that I felt so desperate for it. I want to get back to being the person I was before, who would never waste so much time and money on drugs and instead focus on enjoying life.

    Reading some of the stories of other marijuana users on these forums has already made me feel less alone and that just by being honest with myself and others about my addiction I can finally start to move on.

    Thank you

    Hi saveferris and welcome to the forum

    I know what you mean eventually the fun can just go out of it, for me it became the exact opposite and turned into a nightmare. Anyway well done on your decision to quit, hopefully soon you will be living the life you feel you ought to be. It’s good you have such a supporting girl friend, good support can really make the difference, make sure you hold on to her. We can all be a bit snappy and moody when we quit, it might just be better to level with her and let her know why you are been like you are, she will probably understand, unless I am wrong, anyway I am sure you know her best, but after any initial upset it’s amazing just understanding those who love us can be. Yeah the picking up, I must have spent so many hours just doing that, let alone smoking the stuff I suppose it is an indication of just how much of a habit it has become. Anyway I am sure you will soon get back to how you were before. Like you say there are lots of others here going through exactly the same thing, you really are not alone, we are with you all the way!

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

    All the best

      High, thanks for your honesty and willingness to share your story. I have smoked for almost 30 years but have been determined to prove to myself that I could stop, stay stopped and see what being unstoned is like for me. I have previously managed 2 weeks without smoking and found increased clarity and greater consistency of mood, my memory increased and I became reaquainted with myself, smoking always seemed to empty and re-set my mind and emotional state. I concentrate better and am not over-fascinated by every experience (colours,sounds emotions seemed more grandiose and i always seem to see everything from more angles than is neccesary).
      My dreams become more vivid, intense and memorable when sober. I welcome this, experiencing a more natural state, allowing my brain and body to operate without clouds of thc altering my perceptions. Always believed that we have a natural healing which can only be interfered with through over-consumption of a mind-altering substance (that's what I smoked for!) I welcome a less mediated relationship with reality and wish to embrace a more natural state of being. I have been getting stoned for so long that my clean perspective is almost like a new high! Good luck

        Best of luck!

        I am here to wish you the best of luck with your quit. In my experience it is so worth it. It is hard to see out of the cloud when you are in it, but life can be so much better! I found that when I quit I was much more connected to people socially. Pot can really make you disconnected and I really notice that now. Quitting has all sorts of other benefits too.

        Make sure that you eat well, drink lots of water, get lots of sleep and people say that exercise can help too. Good luck! We are all rooting for you :-) Take care of yourself!
