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,

  • One week down (??????)

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    G'Day all,
    well its been one week now,I'm still hanging in there. To be completely honest I'm starting to wonder if the positives outweigh the negatives.
    Although I've had no real Anger issues,I have been argumentative most of the time which is a bad idea when raising teens especially of the daughter variety.My wife is still being patient but the tensions building and really I can't blame her.My normally wonderful sense of humour (if I say so myself) is all but completely gone. I haven't slept more than three hours a night,my appetite has gone to s*** ,lacking energy,sweating. Not to mention I've been smoking twice the cigs.
    Before I decided to give up I was in a very good place, Very happy Wife/Marriage,great relationships with teenage son and daughter(amazingly enough),Good fitness and health for 36 yrs old. I was a fairly relaxed low stress kind of guy in a positive phase of my life. This is actually what gave me the confidence to have a go at giving up in the first place.
    Now I'm very concerned that irrepairable damage will be done to important relationships during the process of giving up as well as the possibility of changes to my personality and sense of humour being permanent. As I have been a smoker all of my adult life, I really cant be sure of what I will be like. I liked who I was before,will I like me after????
    As for the health implications ,I'd rather be happy and liked by others until I'm sixty as opposed to miserable and hated until I'm eighty.
    I think it might be a matter of moderation and discipline to make it an occasional indugence(weekends? monthly?) not a dailly habit ,therefore you actually get that high you loved in the beginning instead of smoking to maintain a level of normality.I'm not going to make rushed decision as I'm proud to have made it this far but I will be contemplating it.

    Thanks for listening,
    Paul

    I wouldn’t get too despondent with giving up just yet it’s only been one week. Giving up will make you miserable for a while, that’s the effect giving up drugs can have short term, you will feel like **** and wonder if you have done the right thing, but it will pass. A week is nowhere near longer enough to evaluate whether giving up drugs is worth it or not, you are still going through the withdrawal, you have to be well past that before you have given it a fair chance and can therefore make that decision.

    One thing I would say if you are finding going from smoking what you normally smoke, to smoking nothing too severe a withdrawal, is to detox by gradually reducing the amount you smoke over a period of a month or two, before you quit completely, that way you hit the ground with much less of a thud.

    So I wouldn’t question your decision to give up just yet, but if you are finding it too much maybe you should reconsider, the way in which you are going about it.

    Don’t give up just yet, it will get easier mate I promise.

    Take care and all the best.
