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,

  • Whos trying to quit and not had problems with weed

    marijuana withdrawal symptoms relief
    Is there anyone on here whos trying to detox and not had problems with weed? It would be easy to detox if you suffer from anxiety and paranoia when you smoke it, its a lot harder when you dont suffer side effects like this.

    I think most of us here have experienced some sort of problem or negative effect from our the drug use, otherwise we probably wouldn’t want to quit... With me it’s my lungs they feel like turd, that and the fact that the drug has taken over my life, I want to do other things than just lying around and getting stoned all the time... If I carry on like this I may as well spend the rest of my life in a coma, it’s having the same effect.

      Weed doesn’t have to be negatively effecting your mental health in order to want to quit, there’s all kinds of different reasons people have for wanting to quit, like the ones the last person posted, it can be different for everybody. Although very often people are not always aware of the negative effect their drug use is having on their life, they can go on like that for years and then twenty years later wake up one day and realize they wanted so much more out of life, or that this isn’t how they wanted to live. There’s more than enough evidence to show the negative effects the drug has on both the lungs, the brain and people’s lives in general, but if they don’t believe or are not aware of it, then it can be hard for them to find the motivation to want to quit, although just because they are not aware of these things happening doesn’t mean that they are not, or that they won’t be affected by them in the future, it’s like that lady says in the marijuana addiction video I have just linked to. She thought she was really connected to everyone and everything when she was high, but her friends thought she was really disconnected, distant and “unavailable”, she wasn’t aware of the actual effect it was really having on her behaviour. Some people struggle to find reasons as to why they should want to quit, because they have brainwashed themselves into believing what they want to believe and closed themselves off to evidence that doesn’t fit in with their view of what they would like the case to be, rather than how it actually is, I know I did for a long time while I was using, maybe in this situation they should ask an outsider someone who isn’t using drugs, who knows them really well if they have noticed any changes in their behaviour, since now and before they started using, they may be shocked to hear what they have to say.

      Anyway I am not going to tell you what to do, only you can make that call, all I am suggesting is sometimes it can help to look at things in a different way, or get an outsiders perspective.

      If a person does not want to detox then there’s very little chance that they will.

      Regardless of what you decide I wish you the very best. Take care and thanks for listening.

        dont be fooled

        i use to think the drug was the best thing in the world and also that there was nothing wrong with me,i never had a problem with the drug so i thought,until i started having bad experiences with it,ive now given up for nearly five months and looking back at my life with the drug i realise there was a problem,its only when your on the other side you can see how the drug did affect your life.also just because you are ok now doesnt mean your gonna be ok next year or even in five years,its best to give up

            That’s very wise advice, research does show it can take six months before you get back to normal.

              might take more!!!!

              it might take a couple of months for cannabis to get out of your body(blood),but it can take a lot longer for it to get out of your head,you have to realise that you are now facing the world without weed,you will be thinking differently,re-acting differently,everything will be different,ive given up for nearly five months now i was smoking for about 15 years,im not as anxious as i use to be and am getting a better quality of sleep,but i still feel fear and nervous for no reason and every thought in my head i get scared of even good thoughts.i do have good days but also comes the bad ones,i still manage to go to work and live a normal life but i still know im not 100%.i now realise that i was like this when i was smoking the drug but it felt normal to me then,it doesnt feel normal now and is very frightening because this is not the quality of life i want,ive got no motivation even though i do get my everday things done,i have dreams that i want to do but cant see them happening with the way i feel,i have to admit i am better then i was a few months back so im keeping positive knowing that it will take time but i will get there,maybe im a bit to impatient and want to get get better quickly which might not just happen,

              two of my cousins have been smoking for the same amount of time as me and they smoke a lot more in the day then me,but they have achieved a lot more then me and run thier own bussiness and also families,they have spoken to me and want to give up soon..weed doesnt seem to be a problem for them,it might not affect everybody the same......good luck and give up

                "i wanna be normal...."

                This is one thing me and all of my old pothead friends used to say.. it really rings true!

                Many people don't come clean and admit to themselves that they really are potheads. (it sounds like such a dirty word, doesn't it? that's how I felt)
                I would think about my pot habit and how I did pretty much nothing with myself... and I always ENVIED those people who were "normal" and did "normal people things" instead of getting high.

                I always thought it would be nice to be able to truly experience and enjoy the things that normal people do, and to feel alert and attentive, not like life is just passing me by. Normal people enjoy the trees and sunshine on a nice day, they get up early and have coffee and go for a jog or a swim. Stuff like that is what I always missed out on. I used to smoke up before doing anything, going to see a movie, a road trip, etc etc... but I realized all these things would have been more exciting and memorable if I wasnt in a passive foggy state of mind where everything feels dull and the same. It's no way to go through life.

                  Thanks for the video, interesting. especially when she talks about dreaming and all this big ideas and then when it comes down to it is all you do is keep dreaming and getting no where.

                  thanks,

                    it doesnt look like ther r 2 many people who dont hav problems and still want 2 giv up-many of the people here hav some bit of worry or anxiety about ther own smokn habit-i'm 5 days wiout a smoke today and overall i feel better-but ther r times wen i just want 2 xplode-

                    i was an unhappy smoker-thats it in a nutshell-i havnt decided how long i'm gona leave it for-say for instance i dont feel any better in 6 months well then i mite have to accept that ther's nothin wrong wi me smokn, its a deeper mental issue that i hav 2 deal with-but somehow i dont think so-i reckn pot has screwed me up big time and i hav to stay off it, clean it from my system and then i mite be happy again-

                    i'm well aware of peoples' individual views-i know people check out this cannabis rehab site who believe that pot CAN ONLY B A GUD THING-i thought like that 2 and could hav matched any argument against th stuff i used to do all the time-for 20 years-all ur arguments in favour of it-lots of us have said them at one time or another-but now i know that it has a detrimental effect on many (but not all) people who use it regular-i mean people who smoke it all day everyday-

                    like one of u said-do i want 2 lie about all day and plan 2 save the world or do i want to get off my rear end and do something-well i want to do something else-so will u one day-i 'm acceptin i'm a stoner-its a problem and now i have to regain control-is it enuff 2 not care about nothing and lie about stoned?not now i'v had enough of that-people who wana keep on smokn-u'll not get criticised by me-i did it 4 long enuff and know sooooo many people who still toke away-gud luck 2 them-but it aint doin me any favours so i'm gona stay stoppd-thats it-wen i startd at the top of this note i was ready 2 kill dead things-now i feel a bit more settld-thank ****-

                    good luck 2 u all-dope aint 4 me and i'm gona try n stay stoppd-b4 my brain melts!
