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,

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    Hello all
    I'm so glad i found this site, Ok, it is day 3 without for me after 13 years of very heavy usage (at least a once a week), I used it every day without question, half of my life. So far its been very tough, I have had around 5 hours sleep in three nights. I have just started a new job (minimum wage) which has been a healthy distraction so far. I have been sweating a lot and my head feels very fuzzy, and I have to force food down. My sexual appitite seems to have gone and I'm also smoking roll ups like crazy but one step at a time. Thanks to this cannabis rehab site I have found that all my symtoms are not out of the ordinary which is reasuuring. I have never really had any of the mental problems such as paranoia and not being socialble whilst using the drug although obviously I was depentant on it before and after I did anything. I'm sure I can handle the physical effects of going cold turkey but my biggest fear about quitting is that I have not even raised a smile since quitting and have kinda lost my spark, I am actually scared (for the first time that I can remeber) that it won't come back, I just wanna be the same person I was 4 days ago (without being dependant). I understand that the drug makes things seem funnier but I hope that it was not the reason why I had my sense of humour in the first place. I'm worried because I have never expierinced any type of depression and I dont really know how I will cope if it gets worse because from what I have read it does for a time. On the plus side I do not feel angry and have not snapped at anybody so far. My girlfriend and family have been very supportive, although they have come up with some stupid ideas for how I should spend my time because I've been board constantly (bless them). I have not set my goals to never smoke the drug again because that is scary, but if I can last one week then I should be able to last another, then another.

    I'm sorry if I am winging and if this does not make sense but I needed to get this off my chest to people who can understand. My eyes are watering a bit whilst I write this, I dunno why. I have never been much of a emotional person and have never contributed to a rehab group before.

    p.s my reasons for trying to detox are money and more importantly health, my Dad has just been diagnosed with lung cancer last month and although I am smoking more roll ups now, I feel that if I can quit the drug then quitting smoking will be a much easier step.

    Thanks for you time.

    Hi Rooster and welcome to the forum.

    Five hours sleep in three nights hey, that sounds pretty tough, sleep deprivation can be pretty harsh. No you symptoms are not out of the ordinary, they are pretty common for many, which includes feeling down, some people can get very depressed, but it usually passes, it’s all part of the process, once your brain has a chance to rewire it’s self I am sure you will get your spark back. Just try to take it one day at a time. Feel free to winge as much as you like, it’s what we are here for. Anyway well done on your progress so far, we are all with you, you are not alone.

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

    All the best and good luck!

      Hi Rooster,

      Well done on your decision to quit. You are at a simillar stage to me, i am on day 4 now. I am suffering exactly the same symptoms as you, sweaty nights, no sleep, loss of appetite, ( Although I am not complaining about that one) And generally I feel groggy and really tired. Hang on in there i promise you it gets easier, i know this because i quit for 60 days in February and i had a ten week relapse, thats why i'm on day 4 again.

      This site is a godsend, the people here actually care and they are going through exactly the same feelings as you, and people are always so encouraging, it really helps. I am now addicted to this site, i'm here every few hours reading peoples posts and commenting.

      I wish you the best of luck in your journey. Please keep posting and telling us how you are doing. It is gunna be hard, but it will be the best thing that you ever did

      Together we can do it

        I had a dream....

        Many thanks for your support guys and girls, day 5 now, got a good 4 hours last night and had a dream for the first time in over a decade, woah it was wierd, and a shock to be honest, woke up feeling very strange and fuzzy but also more refreshed than I have been in the last few days. I kinda freaked my girlfriend out because I was sleep talking with one eye open. The poor girl has to deal with that as well as a sweaty bed. I took the dogs on a mignight walk and found it really helped. I will post back after a week off even if I do give in to the pressure, but I'm sure I won't.
        thanks again.

          1 week down...

          ok, its been a whole week now, and to be honest it has not got any easier. The negitive thoughts are not going away. I can now eat properly mind. I kinda had a arguement with my girlfriend which would not of happened if I was stoned. Nothing seems fun anymore but I expected this for a while so I'll try to not let it get to me, but it is tough. Sleeping is still a major problem and the dreams are odd to say the least.

          positive - I've lasted a week !!! which was unthinkable even a month ago.

            hey rooster

            dont despair! think of the positive rather than the negative, things will get better. you've done a week so you are going through the worst of it just now - i should know, just been through it recently. im on day 22 now and never felt better the first 10 days to two weeks are the worst, the absolute pits, but you must remember why you are doing it - you will get through this. anytime you want to chat, just come on here, it really does help. Re the sleeping - have you tried nytol one a night - they really work for me, the herbal are not much good but the one a night ones really do the trick and my therapist doesn't think there is a problem in taking them - better that than sleeping tablets or going back to smoking. dont worry about the argument with your girlfriend - that would happen even if you were smoking, couples argue anyway, so dont beat yourself up about it! we all have new things to face in life without the fog of smoke keeping things "unreal" for us and it is time to actually experience life without it, which at times can be a struggle but it can only get better.

            Keep strong

              day 10ish

              thanking you fq
              ok day 10ish and sleeping a slightly easier now, its a bit stop/start but progress is being made, four hours average a night I'd say. I kinda dont wanna take sleeping pills because of my addictive personality, still sweating a lot, must of been because of my heavy usage, and the dreams, oh the dreams.... mental! Smoking roll ups like a man possessed but again, one step at a time. Nothing seems much fun still which is definatly my biggest hurdle, but at least I aint gone back to weed. Lets hope england beat germany tomorrow. (Dont worry I wont go back if they lose)

                Change your perspective.

                Hey! So proud of you for waking up and realizing that you need a change in your life. I am on day 4 after smoking nonstop for over a year. I've obviously haven't used as much as others, but I hope I can help with some insight.

                You need to change the way weed means to you. This abusive relationship is breaking Mary J's heart! You need to love and respect her - even if it means observing from afar.

                Think of being sober as another kind of "high". Try to think of what made interested you and made you happy before weed came into your life. Find the little joys and you will slowly forget about being stoned all the time.

                Life is seriously too amazing to just go through in a haze. So much to see and to feel - don't run from yourself.

                You got this!
