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,

    Cannabis Addiction

    Hi welcome to the forum.

    If you feel you can’t stop by yourself maybe you need professional help. Lots of young people seek help for marijuana addiction these days, there’s no shame in needing help. Sure you may have to deal with some stuff that you don’t want to short term, but in the long term most people who seek help are glad that they did. Do your family know you have a problem with cannabis? If they don’t you may need to tell them so you can get the help you need. Again short term they may be upset, but long term I bet you and they will be glad that you did.

    Think about the long term, is this how you want things to continue?

    I deeply sympathise with your situation, I know what it’s like not to be able to stop smoking weed, it sucks. My only regret is that I did not stop sooner than I did.

    I wish you the best of luck, take care and please keep us posted on how it goes.

      If you can’t do it by yourself get some help mate. Like the administrator says think long term.

      Good luck!

        I know exactly what you're talking about.
        I am 17, and i know what life is like to revolve around the drug sadly.

        I won't sugar coat this, by using different words. the drug is addictive as hell.
        Just today my parents found my phone and went through everything i invest my life in.
        They found everyone i smoke with, (everyone of my "friends") who i get it from, everything.

        They've given me so many opportunities to quit, they've caught me so many times that you'd think they'd give up by now. My life revolves around weed, marijuana, sweet leef, green, goody, and i fckin hate it. I've tried to detox before, but it was because i got put on probation.
        I saw it as a sign from god that i needed to change. First day i got off probation i was high again. These people are trying to say you should try decreasing how much u smoke but that doesnt change anything.

        You can just get better the drug and still be reducing your "dose".
        You need to get on your hands and knees, and cry. Cry your heart, and eyes out to god. I'm sort of a hypocrite by saying this because i have yet to do this. I am worried about what other people will say and how hard its going to be. I keep obsessing over the fact that i might not have the good "high times with my bros" anymore. But you and I both know we should squash it while we can. We're too young to be as hooked as i am, finding every opportunity you can to get it and be high at the cost of everyone else. This post is sincere as hell. God will turn your life around. If you talk to him, he will talk back. And you will be able to tell trust me. Signs will show when u ask him something. Or you wont stop thinking about an answer. But be careful when the devil tries to cloud your mind. Think about it... When you first started, you had a voice saying "maybe this isnt right. i shouldnt do this" but you ignored it to see what it was like. Now you've been ignoring it and smoking for so long that you don't hear him anymore. Tell me if I'm wrong? This is exactly what happened to me until today. I can hear him again and I know he'll take care of me. You just need to have the willpower to take control of the bull by the horns and STICK IT THROUGH. I hope this helps and you take my advice. Much respect for trying,

        One love,

                was no longer am!

                I was similar to all of you in different ways. When I was 16, I remember smoking multiple times trying to get high and see what it's like. Once I got high....I didn't think I liked it, then I tried it again. From there on out I found myself hanging around people who weren't the people I hung out with before but the people that got me high....that were now my friends. I started smoking more and more as time passed. I hung out with the people I smoked with who were now my good "friends" rather than the people I had been close with and friends for a very long time.

                Started to fall for one of the guy's I smoked with, it made everything worse. It was good for a little while but then everything between us fell apart. At this point I was already dependent on the drug and I guess very insecure and depressed in some aspect. So things ending with the guy I liked made everything worse for me. I couldn't hang out with the people that I once smoked with because I didn't want to be around the guy. I wanted to smoke so bad.....I wanted numb my emotions by freeing my mind.

                Soon I ended up smoking alone 2 or 3 times a day. Sometimes it'd be with friends I smoked with.....but not for the most part. I was at the lowest point of my life and I knew it. My friends i'd always known and been close with would always tell me I had a problem, but that didn't help anything. I think if anything probably helped fueled my flame of denial and how it was just what I wanted to do. I spent most of my time high rather than sober. It was a daily routine, and daily feeling that I didn't want to go without. I remember thinking why live life day to day sober when everything is so much better high? It was a dependent feeling.

                I couldn't really tell you how I finally stopped. But I began to be involved with my church again. Also smoking just wasn't the same anymore.....I guess I also became more comfortable with myself, the people around me, and everything. I am now sober from smoking a little over 5 months and plan to continue this trend. Life is so much better sober....having control....I encourage everyone who feels they're dependent on smoking bud and getting high. Make new friends. Don't hang out with people you get high with. Get involved in activities. It will be hard in the beginning and I know you're going to be tempted....but I promise you not smoking and getting high is worth it in the end! I now look at doing it in disgust now.....and am glad i'm not the girl smoking and getting high all the time. It's not a fun life at all.

                    my friend you need to stop now before it really does damage, i know its ridiculously difficult, but seriously you have to make the decision, i can completely relate to what your saying, seriously, i used to wait till my class had gone into p.e, i'd go into the changing rooms and raid everyones coat pockets, then straight after school i'd pop round my dealers (who was a heroin addict and smacked out his head 24/7, i'd pop round a girl i knew's house and get ****ign trashed (her family were completely open about smoking and the occasional deal), a few years later i wasnt getting completely trashed off it, but for some reason when i didnt have it i would go ****ing apeshit, doesnt make any sense does it? its not getting me stoned but i still go crazy if i didnt have it, ive had so many girlfriends over the years that just had enough, i had a real paranoia being around anyone, this one ***** i used to know that didnt smoke,constantly accused me ov being ***** coz of the way i was (he didnt know i was getting stoned) and every time i met up wid my friends i would think they were accuseing me of being gay, and talking about me and spreading rumours, literally it is the most ****ed up drug there is when it comes to socialiseing, i couldnt hold down a job, i was constantly fighting everyone, and i mean everyone, its really strange because i dont like physical fighting but i wanted it constantly, and when i got into a physical fight with somone i turned into jack the ripper, i got pleasure form knowing im hurting that person and making them cry/bleed, and i wanted everyone to see me doing it, talking about this makes me feel like some unintelligent pikey **** that cant think rationaly, but its really not the case, bottom line is if you dont quit now, u'll buy posters related to weed, u'll buy ash trays with the drug leafs on them, u'll watch only the drug related televison, u'll only hang out with people that smoke weed, u'll spend all ure money on weed, u'll fail in your job and education, then when it comes time to stop, you've trapped yourself into a cycle where you literally cannot stop being reminded that the drug is your everthing, i envy people that can have a smoke at the weekend and and function in there day to day life, but u have to remember, those people, havent smoked it from the age of 13 and onwards, you can take my adivce or u can leave it, but i promise, the next few years are goin to be nothing but shit, in fact shit would be an improvement, your life will be ****ing chaos to the point whee suicide doesnt seem sucha bad thing to do (if it wasnt for your family and the fact the drug has turned you into a complete *****) you would definatly seriously consider it, i know this all is alot to cope with but where i saw how old you were it made me think im going to help this kid becasue no one did it for me, read everyting ive said twice over and reply to my post. you can do it my friend you really can. whats a few onths of hell, to the rest of your life, ya know

                        Hi whattodo and welcome to the forum

                        It sounds like you really do need some help, if you can’t quit by yourself I think you really do need to tell your mother, I know it’s not something anyone wants to have to do, but you have got to think long term, sure she might get mad and be really upset at first, but she will calm down and be on your side once the dust has settled I am sure of it. Try to think how you will feel in five years time, I am sure you will be glad you did, the alternative could be far worse. I know it’s going to be difficult but if you can’t quit by yourself it’s something you have got to do, depending on how badly you are addicted you may even need some professional help, so it’s not something you are going to be able to keep a secret, she is probably going to find out sooner or latter anyhow, you may as well get it out the way and do it in a way you will have more control over, she may find it hard to understand at first, but there is plenty of good information available and professionals who are trained to deal with this sort of thing to help you both, marijuana addiction amongst young people is now extremely common, more young people go into cannabis rehab for that now than any other drug, if you need help explaining it to her you can even refer her to us, we will do what ever we can to help make her understand you need help and make sure she will be on your side in beating this thing.

                        Take care and please let us know what you decide to do.

                          still a smoker

                          Look everyone, i know youse all have trouble with smoking weed, i used to think i did too because just last summer as in 2010 i was smoking at least a 25 bag every single day and towards the end of august i just wasnt getting high anymore, but i did it anyway because i couldnt live without it as in, a day without the drug was considered a day wasted/shit. i was stealing constantly from shops to seel stuuf like dvds and games and so on. i as stealing from my muum and she knew that i was smoking and didnt mind much during the summer but one day forbid me to smoke it. at he time i was so pissed but now when i look back it was the best thing for me as i now only smoke at the weekends and it feels great as i get a better buzz off it and i am in controll during the week. i was hanging around with people who knew what they were doing when it came down to the drug which was helpfull but now when i look back (thankfully i dont hang with them no more) it seemed kinda stupid. i go to one of the best schools in northern ireland and i realised i was ****ing my education up. im 16 and its my gcse year. i needed to buckle down and i know i sound like a moral fag but trust me guys, the comments ive read here are touching as every single one touched me and i realised people feel the same. im kind of ashamed to post this so i did it anonymous and i wouldnt normally post comments this long on the internet but i needed to talk about it cuz i just put on a brave face and like a big stoner cuz im convinced that the drug is normall to do. i now know that it is not. yes sure the drug is addicting but stiil its easy to put it off to the weekend even if you think about it most of the day haha. thanks for listening.

                            Hi Unregistered and welcome.

                            I am glad you feel you have got your the drug use more under control, many here who feel they are truly addicted do tend to find it’s an all or nothing type affair at least for them anyway, but perhaps it depends on how hooked you are, at the end of the day it’s about whatever works for you. Anyway it’s great to hear you feel more in control of your life again.

                            Take care and thanks for posting.

                            All the best

                              Man o man

                              I really wish I could've found this rehab group when I was younger.. I actually have a story very similar to the Dutch kids. Everything began with pot.. I started when I was 14, instantly hooked. 5 years down the road ive smoked more weed than snoop and still cant figure out where all the time went smh.. After the first year, It got to the point where I was an "unwilling" type of addict. It is so horrifying, to literally watch your body do things you, just minutes ago, told yourself you wouldn't. To feel your mind trick itself to the point where anything but the firmest foundation might as well be dry sand for how well it stays together. 5 years of every drug but always pot, and now my face is now just a metaphorical mass of scars. I feel like a monster wrought of my own flesh.. I'd cry every single day if all these sad things didn't seem so normal. I used to be a very happy person, and now I just feel like a broken down old man.. At 19... What's worse than feeling ancient and tired when your still young?
