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 withdrawal symptoms relief
    Hello,
    I need some help.
    I stopped smoking weed and tobacco 9 months ago. I smoked both about 3 years, weed 3 times per week, cigarettes every day. I started smoking behause of my irritable bowel syndrome. But I became more and more addicted (especially cigarettes) so I stopped cold turkey.
    I never had such anxiety feelings before in my life.
    The first 3-5 months were very awful. Now I feel a little bit better.
    But I still have Anxiety, panic attacks and brain fog. It comes and goes in waves weekly. Some days I feel normal, some days it hits me again like a hell (with no reason). Morning is awful, evening is good.
    Im at a doctor (neurologist). He give me medicine (Ecitalopram 15 mg, Mirtazapin 15 mg). He is also helpless.

    I try to make sport and Meditation. I eat healthy.
    It still feels like withdrawal syndroms, but I know this couldnt be. So its pure anxiety and panic attacks.
    Is there somebody who have/had the same problems?
    Is there hope feeling healthy and normal again?
    (Sorry for the bad english, Im German)
    Thank you
    Lucy

    Hey. I'm not in the same boat as you because I never smoked cigarettes. But my guess is that bc you stopped both cold Turkey it could be harder? I have heard that cigarettes are hard to stop smoking and the withdrawals are pretty bad. I am however going through MJ withdrawals and I'm going to be hitting my 4th month soon. And the first month was hell and the second month wasn't very easy either. Hitting the ending of mthe second month I had a bit of clearer thinking. I'm going to be hitting my 4th month soon and like two weeks ago I felt a little more improvements. But these past couple of days have been a bit on the harder side. I get the wave part but I'm wondering if the fact that ur withdrawaling from both tobacco and MJ that it's still that bad for you? Have you gone to your regular DR? Also are there any AA meetings you could attend. Also seeing a therapist? It sounds like withdrawals. I'm sorry but they are hard to deal with. If you read other forums on here there are some ppl that struggle with the same time frame as you and hit that year mark and feel much better. I'm sorry you're having such a hard time. Stay strong!

      Hi there Lucy,

      I would echo the sentiments of the person above, in that even though it can take some time, you will definitely feel healthy and normal again if you stick with it.

      I wanted to chime in because although I have never heard of Ecitalopram, I have had some experience with Mirtazapine and would say that it is a wonder drug for the treatment of addiction. I used it through both the cessation of cigarettes and cannabis. It made a huge difference.

      So, I think your doctor is a good one. Support can be the thing that makes it possible for us to stay the distance, so I am glad that you are talking to your doctor, and posting here.

      Good luck.
      Alice
