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
    First I would like to introduce my self, My name is William and I have been smoking pot for the past 11 years. I am about to turn 25 next month and decided it is time to quit. I have been smoking everyday multiple times a day for the past 11 years up untill last year when i had a terrible panic attack after smoking. In those 11 years i havent gone more than a week with out smoking. I cant believe i have been high for that long. Anyway this process sucks. I have a constant light headed feeling, dull headache and feel like i might have the flue. When is this going to stop!!!!

    update

    Well last night was the hardest night out of all. I had a hard time going to sleep and the intense twisted dreams I am having are causing me to wake up in the middle of the night. I forgot to mention in my first post that after I had that terrible panic attack after smoking i cut back the amount i had been smoking each day. I went from smoking multiple times a day to maybe 1 or 2 hits a day but non the less was still using everyday. Ohh and i also forgot to mention that I'm attempting to detox ciggarettes. Today will be my 3rd day cigg free. I was never a heavy smoker(maybe a pack every 2-3days) but I'm really concerned about my health and just the thought of inhaling smoke into my lungs scares me. I abused my lungs so much at such a young age with all the blunts i have smoked.

      The first 3 weeks will be the most intense for physical withdrawal, it can be tempting during this period to smoke again to ease the detox but stick with it my friend it will get better

        Hi s42k5b welcome to the forum.

        I have experienced panic attacks from smoking the drug too, it sucks doesn’t it. People probably think experiencing a panic attack is not that big a deal, but they can be very intense and a extremely distressing physical experience.
        I think the last poster is right, you are usually through the worst of it after a few weeks, but some experience various psychological effects for a number of months after.

        There’s no absolute exact rules, we can all recover differently.

        Well done on your effort so far.

        Take care and please continue to share your experience.

                Thanks for the posts.. It seems like we are going through this together and I am looking forward to us sharing our good news to each other as the days go by..

                The pot was turning on me so bad towards the end. I would smoke and be like "I need to quit, I feel horrible" then I would straighten up and then go smoke again!! I think it was the habitual stuff that made me happy more than the smoking itself..having it..smelling it..packing the bowl..then I'd smoke and Panic attack land here I come...I can't count how many times I'd have to run outside to get air and my heart would feel like it was gonna pop right out of my chest..

                WHO NEEDS THAT?? We definitely don't! I think we can find other ritualistic things that are healthy for us and won't make us feel like we are gonna die...

                Stay strong and we will stay in touch..thanks again

                    Well done! I'm so impressed with your efforts..and so glad to hear that you're feeling better. You are an inspiration to me and others who have trouble with anxiety and panic attacks...yay you!!!! I was beginning to wonder if I was always gonna feel that way but hearing stories like your's reassures me that things do get better. Thankyou.

                      stay free-i wana be me (again)

                      it takes a while for ur system to clear-i'm on my 4th week potless and definitely feel better-the stress attacks still happen but are getting less-

                      stayen clear from pot is the answer-its not easy to get free but u are-u'v made the right choice-good stuff dude-keep postin-it helps me that others are in the same boat-we'll b able to discard our life jackets and focus on our lives-

                      learnin about addiction is one key that's workin for me-as pot smokers we have set up a lot of dope high receptors in our brains that need a hit to keep them alive-imagine them as landing docks-wen we stop smokn they become like disused aircraft landing zones-without ther hit their power diminishes-i'm not sure if they'll ever go away for good but their power over us definitely gets less and less wen we continue to make the right choice and not smoke pot-i'm no brain scientist but this is one outlook that helps me control my urges to smoke-its as if i'm taking the crave away from me and blaming a place in my brain wer i dont have total control-

                      potfree since monday 30th march 2009-

                      good luck dudes-i hope we all get free

                          Well done s42k5b you have done so well! 39 days is a huge achievement, it may not seem a lot to some people, but for the person who has to live through them it can be a heck of a long time. I was just wondering how you managed to fill your time, what has worked well for you? Thanks for continuing to share your experience, I am sure it will be of help to others.

                          Take care

                            Filling my time has not been as hard as I thought it was going to be. However when I do have some down time I watch a movie, go to the gym, wash/ work on my car, walk the dog, clean my house. Since I quit smoking, i have become alot more social and find myself going out on the weekend nights and putting myself in a social setting. I would have to say that going to the gym has played a large role in my achievement. I know it has only been 40 days, but I really do feel like I'm over it!
