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,

  • Quitting marijuana sleeping and dreaming

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    One thing that you may notice when you quit marijuana is that you dream more. This is because marijuana interferes with the REM stage of sleep, which is when you dream the most. How many of you out there have noticed this change?

      Marijuana Addiction

      Anxiety is a perfectly normal symptom of quitting, so if difficulty sleeping, but your body will adjust and when it does you will be able to get more sleep and it will be of much better quality.

      Hang in there.

        Hello there....any advice greatly appreciated.

        My husband has gradually given up pot after smoking for 20 years. He's stopped completely over the last 6 months & now finally is completely clear....but his sleep patterns have gone mad.

        He sleeps all the time & last night went into a deep sleep to the point that he says 'he thought he was dying'...that 'the life just drained out of him'. I check on him every few hours when he's sleeping at odd times....it was a very heavy sleep & his breathing was deep but regular. Should I be worried about him blacking out? How long will it take for some kind of normal sleep pattern? Is there anything I can do to help?

        As for dreams....until recently, he couldn't recall any dreams at all. Now, the fact that he can recall them seems to worry him....

        I'm trying to get him to exercise to get some energy & eat properly but it is a struggle & he is losing weight.

        Many thanks.

          Hi

          I wouldn’t worry about the fact that he can now recall his dreams, that is a perfectly natural part of giving up. As to the other aspects of his sleep pattern, truthfully I do not know. If he is experiencing symptoms that are worrying you, like thinking he was going to die, the best thing I can advise is to consult a qualified professional who specialises in that area. It may well be nothing to worry about, but I think it is always better to be safe than sorry.

          Take care and please keep us posted.

            Many thanks.

            I'm trying to get him to see a qualified person in this area but so far he says he doesn't need or want to. It is tricky to strike a balance over reasonable suggestions as his tolerance for the stuff of everyday life is a little short lived.

            He says he feels better...but is asleep again....so I will continue to check on him. Having been together for 15years, I have only ever known him under the influence of cannabis so it is difficult to know what is best to do when faced with such a change in behaviour. I'm sure that the changes are just as hard for him to accept.

            His decision to detox is huge and we will get through it.

            Thank you so much for your support.

              I second that advice admin... it is in best choice to consult a professional regarding this problem... It is certainly not easy to detox marijuana... but once you have given up smoking weed, it is better not to get back to the addiction...

                The dreaming part is normal but I would just make him go to the doctor if you can. It could completely unrelated to quitting.

                    @ the lady with the sleepy husband, u dont say when he actually had his last smoke, from trawling the net extreme tiredness seems quite common for the first few weeks. althought if it does carry on or yr worried its best to get him down the doc's, u say hes only just started to remember his dreams that seems to suggest hes only just stopped completly,
                    i was so knacked for the first few days i slept loads and am still a little prone to fatigue after 3 weeks, the disturbed sleep dont help either but i have more energetic days as time has gone buy.

                      VIVID dreams

                      I have found the dreams are very vivid , sometimes bad and very emotional, am taking it as a good sign that my brain chemistry is normalizing . Sometimes in the mornings the dreams have been so real it takes me several minutes to realize that the dreams were only dreams.

                        I gave up the drug over 2 months ago and the only real symptom I have now is fatigue, I think its your brain and body telling you to slow down so it can repair and get back to normal

                          dreams

                          I recall that whenever I have to go w/o marijuana, when I FINALLY get to sleep, the dreams are vivid, wild and memorable. I am actually looking forward to this, I quit yesterday and this weekend should be quite interesting..

                            Sleep

                            I went from smoking multiple times daily from May to August to quitting...again. I'm going on month 3 and waking up three or more times a night. My dreams are crazy vivid. Melatonin intensified the vivid nature of my dreams. I have not slept more than 6 hours at a stretch. I was at the end of my rope and was set to get a 1/4 oz tomorrow and then I came across this rehab group and realized I need to stick this out. I've thrown away my stash three times and gotten rid of various paraphanellia over the course of the last three to four years. I just need to know it is worth it. I need to see this through.

                              It really is starting to get depressing for me. 3 months in and my sleep is still completley messed up. I just want this to end so i can get some good rest and feel normal again. Will it take much longer? I dont understand why this has taken SO LONG.
