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,

  • Day two

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    Gday all,
    I'm 36 years old and smoked pot pretty much every single day for 22 years. My very patient and loving wife of 18 years has always been an occasional smoker, (parties, weekends,etc.)She has regularly been able to detox for long periods(12 months or more) whilst pregnant with each of our three kids, a son 17yrs and two daughters 14 and 3.On each of these occasions she has encouraged me to give it up also,but each time I have convinced her to start smoking again with me.We have both never been regular drinkers and most of our socialising has always been with other smokers.We have never smoked around our kids but the older two know we smoke it regularly.

    On Feb 14th I decided FINALLY the pot had to go.

    DAY 1 / FEB 15......The first day wasn't too bad as I've always been more of a night time smoker.As it got later though I really began to crave a bong and I found it very difficult to sit and relax without it.I got pretty cranky and had no patience at all with the kids, but the real trouble started when bedtime came around and I found I was wide awake. I sat up until 3 am with negative thoughts racing through my head, I felt angry frustrated and tense.I also smoked twice as many cigs as usual.
    When I did finally feel tired enough to go to bed it still took me an hour to get to sleep. During the night I had terrible nightmares and woke several times drenched in sweat.
    DAY 2 /FEB 16 .....Although I felt tired this morning after such a ****py night sleep,my head already seemed clearer and I felt somewhat proud that I'd made it through DAY 1. My wife told me how proud she was to and this was a huge boost that gave me a positive start to DAY 2. As with day 1, daytime was very little trouble until around 6 pm when the cravings began again. An argument with my 14 yr old didn't help much,but with quick intervention by my wife I managed to push on.Watching some good tv helped for a couple of hours and at around 11:30 my wife was ready for bed. But as with the night before I was still very much wide awake so I'm still up and it is now 2:00 am.I must admit I'm a little worried about going to bed and having another night like last night but I really need some sleep as My wife has to work in the morning and I'm home with our Beautiful 3 year old girl Lily.Tomorrow I plan to toss out all my pipes and bongs etc. to make sure there is no temptation.As confident as I am about winning the fight against this addiction, I'm really worried about how long the withdrawl symptons will last and what effect it might have on my relationships with family.
    Well thanks for listening, I'm going to try and get some sleep, wish me luck.

      Gday welcome to the forum.

      It’s perfectly normal to experience what you are experiencing. It’s hard to know how long you will experience detox symptoms for, some find they feel much better after a few weeks, some it can take months, we can all react differently. I hope they are as short for you as possible. Thanks for all the posts you have made.

      Good luck and please keep us posted on how it goes.
