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
    Hey guys I quit smoking on march 7th and I just wanted to come back and report my progress and not just dissappear from the forum.

    Well so far it has been good. Sure there are days that are tough and I don't feel happy all the time BUT I think that those days have to happen and will continue for another month or maybe even more until i get out of this "window"

    You have to remember that drug doctors(toxicoligists) say THC can be stored in your brain and fat cells for up to 6 months. Yes 6 months.

    I was super emotional the first few weeks and even punched a hole in my bedroom wall when I became very upset once. I usually have very good self control.

    I cried a few times within the first few weeks. The detox period was the hardest emotionally and that started as soon as I started to cut back back on use before even starting the TOTAL quit.

    Also, I've had anxious feelings but not as bad as I thought they would be. Somedays are worse than others and I've had some really great days within the 4 week span as well.

    Dreams:

    I'm slowly starting to dream again I've had a few intense dreams. Not too many but I am definitely having them. I had my first dream of smoking the drug last night and I seriously felt high in my sleep/dream. It was the weirdest thing ever and I can't explain it fully but I woke up with a good feeling. Also, the dreams are intense and visual.

    Sleep:
    this has always been an issue for me. Melatonin has helped a lot even though I try not to take it unless I have a really eary day the next AM. It's an all natural supplement btw. Nothing synthetic and I beleive the dependence is rate is next to zero vs other sleep pills.

    I've been studying for exams and so far am getting Bs on all of them(no calculus yet or anything like that but still college transferrable course such as marine bio-econ etc etc). I felt like i should have gotten As but this may have to do with study skills and all the variables related to that rather than with brain power. I've been out to a few job interviews and actually did well, even though there was a conflict in scheduling so I didn't get the job.

    I'm still foggy and do not feel 100% although if I keep telling myself that I don't think I ever will even when the time is right.

    I want to stress that this is a BABY STEP process I had been smoking since I was 15 approx I'm turning 25 this year.

    Keep yourself busy is what I recommend. If you work....excersize before or afte you are off. Or even better and less of a hassle is playing sports. It's a fun way to increase your circulation and burn that thc of that is sitting inside of your cells.

    Also, I don't know if my negative mindset was tied with my MJ use but I want to stress to everyone out there that WE MUST BE POSITIVE in our thoughts to attract the things we want in our lives. Instead of focusing on which you don't want or don't have focus instead on what you do want. If you tell yourself I CANT QUIT . . .guess what? You can't!

    Good luck fellow smokers and x smokers. . .PEACE and LOVE

        Negativity does come with smoking pot. I have seen it in a lot of people. An ex friend of mine named Tuesday was the most negative person in the world. She didn't really talk about anything positive and she was a heavy pot smoker and highly addicted to it. It was kind of like cigs for her, that's how addicted she was.

        An old "friend" if mine named Kyle, is highly addicted as well. He is now 21, smokes all the time, waste his last money on weed, worked for weed, doesn't have a job, and hasn't looked for a job in almost 3 years, he still lives in his parents house, and he doesn't go to school. I haven't talked to him in a while, but I don't think things have changed much for him. He was one of the worst addicts I have ever seen, lifestyle and everything. He was also my ex boyfriends best friend and my ex slowly started turning into his friend. It was freaky to see. They were kind of like clones with each other. The only different is that my ex did go to school, but failed, and he did get a job (only part time) He needs time to still get high with his friends of course, but had the friends twin brother recommended him for the job, so it took the effort out of trying and he goes out for the drug parties with all of his employees. So with him, everything in his life has to be involved with weed. Parents, job, friends, and probably his next girlfriend, which I wouldn't be surprised with at all.

        Anyways, your doing great! Be thankful you didn't end up like my exes friend. He is still sitting on that couch to this day most likely, toking and playing video games. You are on your way to a better life. Love it and embrace it!!!
