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
    Hi all,

    It's been a great help reading your messages.

    I'm 36 married with one young child and i've been a heavy pot smoker for 18 years. In the last two and half years i have gone from being a succesful person that generally only smoked in the evenings and sometimes all day at the weekends to an all day smoker with no job. I've been smoking an ounce a month and recently it would only last a couple of weeks.

    Finally i realise that i am at a cross roads that i've been at before, i can choose to continue and loose everything or change and everything can be mine again. Sounds like a simple decision, until night fall. As soon as the evening hits, the mood swings get worse, i'm angry, sad and hell to be around.

    I can't sleep, i feel sick, migranes, i feel lonely, sad, lost, unable to think strait and the list goes on.

    Thanks to reading your messages i don't feel so alone now. I'm hopeing things get better soon as my relationship with my wife has got even worse since quiting.

    Well done to all of you and i hope i can follow your examples.

    Hi lastchance welcome to the forum.

    I am glad is helping you. Cannabis can creep up on you and end up taking over your life, I know it did mine. I have read you posts and I find them very moving, it sounds like drugs have had quite an effect on your life. It sounds like you are really going through it right now, I really feel for you I know what it’s like, all I can say is it will pass, sometimes things have to get worse before they can get better.

    Well done on your efforts so far, I know it’s not easy.

    Take care and please keep us posted on how it goes.

      Thanks, i don't want to hurt anymore

      Thanks for your support.

      Last night was the hardest, had a big argument with my wife. She's the victim in all this, putting up with all my sh** for over 10 years! I think we made a break through, once the cravings calmed i was making sense and i think she is starting to understand that i am making steps to change and i feel she will be able to support me now rather than just hate me for everything. Time will tell.

      She's gone to work now, someone has to earn some money! I am left with my daughter, another reason to get my head strait, she's 3 and the last thing i want is for her to be another victim caught up in all this mess.

      I still feel sick, with a really bad migrane but at least i don't crave any type of smoke. Last night i would have settled for anything, tobacco or pot. Tobacco would have just been a step back towards the pot.

      It seems that it might be easier to reduce gradually rather than go cold turkey at the height of my addiction but i just did'nt have the will power to reduce my smoking, so cold turkey was the only option.

      Day 5, no going back. Well thats the way i feel this morning. Hope i can keep the pma "positive mental attitude" tonight!

      Thanks and all the best.

        Day 6

        Hi all,

        Yesterday evening was much easier, i noticed that tight feeling in my head had eased and i felt quitre fresh. When i was cleaning my teeth before bed i noticed how big my eyes were, normally one eye is closed and the other looking pretty red.

        Not much sleep though, i felt really itchy, maybe just allergies but i took a allergy tab and it did'nt work. Maybe it's just in my head or can this be a part of detox?

        I have given up the pot prebiously without any real symptoms, but i gues i had never been using the amount i was near the end.

        Tired today but hopefully once i wake up a bit more my head will clear to how it was yesterday evening.

            Thanks needabreak,

            Good to know it's not just me, i lie awake trying to think what it can be apart from the obvious detox symptoms. So far i had blamed my dog, hay fever and going through what food i had eaten as i have developed a number of food allergies over the years. The latest, about 12 months ago i became a celiac. Nothing to eat that contains wheat, barley Rhy and oats, that counts out a lot of munchies though!

            Thanks very much for your kind words and the advice to continue being clean. Now that i am feeling a bit better i have to admit, like others have warned about on this forum, my mind has been saying pots not so bad it's just me. Maybe when i have dealt with my demons i can go back to smoking just a little. But who am i kidding! Only myself, not any of you guys that’s for sure. If your anything like me, i can't just do a little and i have proved that so many times in the past. It's crazy, i can't believe the detox from my old friend pot! I blamed the cones, i was alright when i was smoking joints, but reading everyone’s messages it's just the drug not the method!

            If i can do this i will have plenty of time to think about how i educate my daughter about the dangers of drugs, even so called soft drugs.

            Thanks and respect to you, 20 years is a long time too. Looking forward to 4 weeks clean and the itching easing!

              hope u'r goin well

              thanks for the good words dude-

              ur brain'll invent many things to explain away the time u smoked and how u'r feeling now-i get flashing lights behinds my eyelids wen i go to bed!it'll take time lastchance but u will get ther-ur brain will try to fool u into using again-it will invent rationallizations that make it okay-its like part of u will come up with excuses to over rule the other half of ur brain that doesnt want to smoke-

              dont listen to them-know that pot was screwing up and the life u have around u-i'd be pretending if i said that i might go back top smoking pot in the future and i'll be fine with it-i wont-it has screwed me up and my only option is to take my head out of my ass and admit it to myself- we'r all different-but we can learn fro each other and i'll be continuing to post and hopefully get my head round it and be happy again-

              good luck dude and know u'v made the right choice to stop doing sumat that was fu'cking u up-that goes for me too-
