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,

  • Feeling euphoria or pretending he's not depressed?

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    Hi my friend has recently quit marijuana, which he has smoked daily for around 7 years. After the first few days he seemed extremely depressed about life in general however now he is claiming he is the happiest he has ever been. He also seems to be settling all his past disputes and is telling people what he really feels about them.

    I know I should be happy for him but it is not sitting right with me, it all feels like he's inches away from a break down. It's as if he's had a revelation about the world or found God. As I've never experienced this I was wondering if it is something that people experience or whether he is trying to hide his emotions.

    As no nobody has chimes in yet, I’ll give my two cents. I can only really say how it’s affected me.

    Basically I had a huge surge in energy and emotions that were dulled came flooding back in. I guess because the drug makes you feel lethargic and numbs your emotions, so I would say it’s pretty normal to feel enthusiastic. Also, I started thinking about the past with a weird clarity, started having deep and significant realisations about past mistakes and relationships I’d misunderstood. Really powerful dreams of people i hadn’t Thought about in 15 years that affected me (mostly positively) for days afterwards. But then there’s a bit of pushback the other way, I guess because the crutch has gone, and I’ve had a day here and there when I felt like everything was going to fall apart - but I guess that’s normal and it didn’t last long. So I guess when the emotions come back in they’ll go both ways - sounds like your friend is getting both sides too. My guess is the chemicals in the brain that deal with emotional balance are reset and there’s going to be a transition period. I’m two months after quitting and I’d say the peaks and troughs are coming down a lot.

    Also really depends on your friend. I think we kinda revert to type to an extent so maybe judge his action on his past sober behaviour and in the context of the emotional rebalancing I’m talking about. But the other side of it is he’s just stopped taking a drug that sucks his energy, kills his emotions and makes everything a bit numb: for some it might be like walking out of hell, so a little euphoria here and there doesn’t seem totally out of place. Hope that helps.
