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,

  • Will I ever come back??

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    Ive been sober for 5 weeks now. I quit because I was becoming more and more stupid and unsocial. The highs were lasting longer and the paranoia was getting worst. I had expected to feel better and become more funny as I quit but instead I am anxious when im around people, even my family members. I'm anxious that I cant think of things to say to people, like im boring and they are just talking to me to be nice or that they are expecting me to be like my old self. I feel depressed lots of the time and sleep for extra long times so I can dream instead of being awake. And I also feel a weird sorta out-of-it-ness like im not as firmly connected to reality as I once was. Does somebody know what I am feeling, can somebody relate please. I never thought being normal would be something I wanted so badly, im just terrified i'll have to learn to live with brain damage and always look back at who I was.

    Hi and welcome to the forum

    I have experienced a similar thing my the drug use really damaged me, it severely impaired my memory and cognitive abilities and put me in a cloud of haziness as if I were halfway between worlds, it felt a bit like as if I had half my brain removed. It’s now around 5 years later and while I have recovered to some extent, I am a lot better now than how I was, well partly that and maybe a little bit of getting used to it, but I am still not the person I used to be, not by a long shot, I still feel a bit cloudy, but that’s just my experience, everybody can have a different experience when it comes to the harm or damage they experience and the rate at which they recover, some people do fair much better than others, some people really can recover quite well. You don’t know to what extent you are going to recover yet so you just have to give it time. I wish I could be of more help I really do.

    Take care, thanks for posting and please keep us posted.

    All the best

      Hi rehab group blogger
      Thanks for your reply, can I ask how long did you smoke the drug for and through what ages? And how did you learn to accept the brain damage, does is still bother you and can you function in social environments?

        Hi again, I smoked heavily from around 21 to 27 give or take, well I suppose the way that it has left me is something that I have to accept whether I like it or not, I suppose that’s how it is for a lot of people in unpleasant situations, but like I say I am a fair bit better than I was, just still nothing like I used to be, yes it bothers me that I can’t function well in social situations, I am very socially phobic, but you learn to make the best of it, if I am not that much of a people person these days then that’s just how I am, I just try to be at peace with it, I found trying to take as Buddhist as possible a philosophy helps. Anyway try not to let my experience convince you that this is how your experience is going to be, I have read reports including on CannabisRehab.org of people who get far more back to normal than I have, every bodies experience can be very different. I watched one video about scans of people’s brains that weren’t working properly because of using marijuana heavily and they said that some are able to pick up function again much better than others, after they stop using. So like I say you really don’t know just how much you are going to recover, it could be more than you think, 5 weeks is still very early days.

        Take care and please keep us posted.
