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 changes your lifestyle personality

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    I have been thinking recently about how marijuana has changed my personality, I have used for a good few years and I think it has left me more introvert and less sociable. I don’t seem to mix with people as much as I used to and all the people I do mix with tend to be other smokers, I think it has also left me a more paranoid person who is more prone to anxiety. Has anybody else noticed that marijuana has changed their lifestyle or personality in anyway?

    Yeah you may have a point. I don’t seem to go out much anymore.

      There's a proverb saying ' QUI S'ASSEMBLE SE RESSEMBLE '

      Literal meaning: Those who look alike associate together.
      Idiomatic translation: Like attracts like / Birds of a feather flock together.

      Yeah i used to hang out with potheads too, with the recent events, i have obviously influenced everyone else, some more than others, some are following me , some are not, some are waiting to see how i react and what is gonna happen with me.

      Yeah i also stayed home a lot and did not go out because it's a vicious cycle, you put your money into weed, thus making you unable to spend that same money on some REAL good stuff like going out to eat with friends to a restaurant, to the movies, to a museum etc.

      I think that people adapt to their own lifestyles.

          When your hooked on any drug, all that seems to matter is taking that drug, everything else just falls by the wayside.

            When I smoke all I want to do is eat, watch telly and play video games. When I don’t I do so much more, I go out and live my life to the full.

              I never had a problem going out but I did find I was a bit introverted and didn't make eye contact with people due to some paranoia. but since I quit I feel a bit more social but other problems have arose with anxiety and depression which is'nt treating me so good right now.

                  From a Moedrate Pothead

                  Hi guys,

                  It's an interesting subject, i know, and would like to tackle it with other potheads.

                  I've been smoking for two years around 3 times a week, more or less, and I noticed that I became more outgoing, bolder, and more sociable.

                  My memory hadn't been great before I started smoking. So, I don't notice any major changes before and after smoking. What i'm doing now, though, is taking Omega 3 pills (fish oil), which is the best for your brain.

                  My only advice is to NOT smoke everyday. As such, the taste of the euphoria will be still tasty!

                  PEACE,

                    Lifestyle Changes

                    Pot didn't change me in any way I don't think. Like I became more paranoid but its not me I want to talk about.

                    Pot changed my ex boyfriend in plenty of ways. He....

                    ---Became more anti social with people who were not potheads
                    ...Accutley I don't recall him hanging with any of his friends sober
                    ---He became careless
                    ---He had a hard time grasping the most simplest of concepts for ex. I told him "pot is just as bad as alcohol in the way they are both addictive" He never understood that. I told him that probbly about 6 times and over.
                    ---He became extreamly closed minded when it came to things besides pot
                    --- If he didn't have pot his temper would get very short
                    --- He would forget things very easily.
                    --- He got heavier in weight, but that has nothing to do with personality
                    ---Lost interest in things (ex, he rarely played the love of his life, the guitar)
                    ---He became very angry and negative


                    Those are some of the ways he changed. He was a willing addict. He knew he had a problem, but didn't give a crap who it hurt and how it hurt them. He wanted to smoke, smoke, and smoke some more. I guess that's why it was so hard to try and help him cut back or quite, which is what I spent my last stressballs doing and I guess it was so hard because he didn't want to in the first place, and I don't think he ever will, that I know of.

                    You know, before he had this the drug problem, he was a very smart, logical guy, with a great personality anyone could just die for. He was funny, and could remember so many things, which made him smart. He passed high school with flying colors and loved his hobbies and was all about peace and love on earth. As time went by all he talked about was wanting to kill half the population and how he hates this, and hates that. There was no peace anymore. Just anger. Pot ironically has made him far from being what he used to be, which was a lovable, fun, hippie.

                    So pot changes some one in many, many ways. It is different for everyone. That's just my comment for this question.

                      Yeah it can be different for everyone, everybody can react differently. For me it did make me paranoid and not want to socialise but like I say everyone can react differently, the main thing is to keep an eye on and be mindful of how it’s affecting you, if you are not really sure it may be a good idea to ask a non user who knows you well as we don’t always see what’s going on or can be in denial or what not.

                      Take care

                        Yeah... it changes your life style.. apearence you dont care about grooming, clothes, cleanes of house, car etc. second socially.. as most have said you rather your smoking group to anything else.. you hide from events and social functions....third your work instead of being your passion it becomes an inconvinience between you and your pot... And worst your mind I do believe it makes you paraniod, emotionally inmature, forgetful and so on

                          Personality changes

                          I have a "friend" that has been smoking pot for almost thirty, yes 30 years. I have noticed that he does have personality changes and it depends on the Pot itself what the changes will be.
                          I am thinking it has something to do with the amount of THC in the pot. He is definately anti-social all the time, he also puts off things he needs or wants to do until the last minute.
                          He recently got some very potent skunk the drug and has become angry and belligerant.
                          Is this something anyone esle has noticed?

                            Hi Cally48 and welcome to the forum.

                            That’s a very interesting point, especially about the type of the drug been an important factor and is something that is becoming increasingly well documented, this is something the BBC’s should I smoke dope documentary (well worth watching for those who have not seen it) covers, really high THC cannabis can have some pretty negative effects, for more info on this check out the high THC low CBD the drug post. It can induce a range of psychotic symptoms on a varying scale depending on the individual.

                            Thanks for sharing that, take care.

                              How things going with the anxiety?

                              I've felt a bit empty and socialy anxious for a while now. I stopped smoking pot after 9 years, where as my friends have carried on smoking.

                              I feel a bit better but 10 months down the line i still feel a little para, anxious, and dont have much confidence.

                              I dont talk to much about it, and just put on a facade, to hide my true worries.
