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
    So I'm 18 now and a freshman at college. I've been smoking since I was 16 but not heavily until I turned 17. I've been at school for a month now and I've been having a lot of trouble making friends. I'm not that shy, but I'm shy enough that I have trouble approaching new people, especially when they are in groups. I assumed I'd be able to meet people at school to smoke with fairly easily but it hasn't really worked out. I'm afraid to bring up the drug because I think it will make people have a bad impression of me. I've been having a really tough time and don't really know what to do. I've been smoking weed, usually a spliff or two at night. This is a big cutback from when I was smoking 5+ spliffs a day over the summer. Now I've run out of the drug and I don't know any dealers so I'm being forced to quit. I know that I am addicted to marijuana, I'm not in denial about it, but it's really been helping me with day to day life here. Now that I have stopped it is affecting my work. While I was smoking I was able to do all my work no problem, but now that I've stopped I have no desire to do any of it. I feel depressed and unmotivated. It's bad enough that I don't have any friends but now I'm having to deal with withdrawal. I have so many things pressing on me now and I really don't know what to do. So to recap, no friends, burried by work, going through marijuana withdrawal, help?

    Hi and welcome to the forum

    It’s sounds like you have made pretty good progress, cutting back from 5 to 1 is pretty dam good. It’s sounds now like you are going to make the last step to finally quitting even if it isn’t through choice. Although quitting is probably likely to improve your ability to work and function in the long term, unfortunately it can mess around with your brain and make a number of things worse in the short term, including depression and motivation, but it is only temporary and should pass in time. If you are finding it really tough you could continue to taper off even further which will help you to hit the ground with less of a thud, but considering you are not able to get it at the moment and that you weren’t smoking that much anyway it may be best to carry on how you are and just get it out the way. Cold turkey may be tougher but it will get you clean quicker, each method has its advantages. Anyway it seems that at the moment the decision is pretty much been made for you, at least if you can’t get it you are guaranteed to succeed. Hang in there I know it can be tough, but it won’t last forever and you will get there in the end. You are not alone buddy, we are all with you, anytime you feel you need to unload please come and tell us about it.

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

      Hi Marijuana Addicted College Student I was exactly the same. My the drug cut out during semester and I was in real trouble - unable to study. I got more smoke but realised I had to change something once the holidays arrived. So all I wanted to say was that I know the feeling of not being able to work when you've been doing it high. I'm there with you on that one.
