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,

  • Can't make music after anymore, 3 weeks without pot and no drive/inspiration

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    The title says it all. I'm a musician, I produce music on the computer and play the drums, but since I quitted the drug 3 weeks ago, I haven't been able to create anything or play drums. Has any musician who quitted pot has some words to ease my despair?

    Hi MrMusician and welcome.

    I am not a musician but I know quitting can play havoc with your mind in all kinds of different ways, it’s not unusual for many to feel really out of sorts and not themselves in any way what so ever. Three weeks is still pretty early days and it can take the brain a good deal longer to correct it’s chemistry, so I wouldn’t be too worried at this stage, if you give it a bit longer I am sure you will get back to your old self eventually.

    Take care and please keep us posted.

    All the best

      Hi MrMusician,

      I'm also not a musician but one thing I know is, at the moment, your brain is ressistant to functioning withoud weed. Since it's fed by the drug for a long time, it will try to make you smoke in every way possible and it can take some time for it to function again with its true capacity.

      All the best

        improvements

        Just wanted to let you know that I've been making some progress. I just added some (actually a lot) will power into the mix and pushed myself to make some music, and to my surprise, I actually made a killer house beat (work in progress at the moment, but I think this one has a bright future in my creations collection) and practiced some drumming rudiments, then went into the drum set and jammed like Neil Peart for about an hour.

        It feels great being clean, almost a month without it and I'm improving little by little. I guess it was a psychological thing, but after reading the first reply on this thread I got a little confidence boost that helped me, thanks for that! Also, I must say that I'm complementing my quitting process with the gym (I've been going for a few months so far), proper nutrition (actually helps, you are what you eat -and what you smoke) and meditation.

        Things are getting better, not perfect, however life is life and it's never gonna be perfect. Being the drug free arms you with the most powerful weapon to deal with life: your mind.

        P.s. If some of my sentences didn't conjugated well, pardon my english, since it's not my first language.
        P.s.2. There is this song called Drive from Incubus, it gives my soul strength, maybe it could help someone else too, music is a powerful healing tool.

          Musician Here.

          I'm a musician on day three of quitting. I have some advice. Force yourself to get up and play some music. Just commit to a couple of songs and see if it doesn't improve your mood ASAP....you'[ll probably want to keep playing after you get through a few songs.

          Instead of coming home and getting high I'm coming home and practicing more...

          As far as music and Marijuana being a match in heaven...well. Marijuana certainly heightens creativity in small doses, but I'd be willing to be that if you smoked like I did it was having a negative impact on creativity more often than not.

          Good Luck!
