People smoking pot when they want without recrimination? Good. Not being able to stop smoking pot even when you want to? Bad.
This subreddit is for practical discussions about how to stop smoking if you've decided to and support in staying stopped from your fellow leaves.
Please note: Our first and most important rule is that we be kind, courteous, and supportive with each other. Even (and maybe especially) people that aren't being kind to us. If someone is breaking this rule, please use the report button and we'll sort it out. Many people come here at the worst point in their lives so far and tempers can be short -- be kind to them and you will get kind back.
Legalization: This group is pot-positive and we have no problems with pot other than the fact that it isn't right for us. That said -- this is a politics-free zone.
There are lots of thoughts on legalization and plenty of places to debate them, but they are a distraction from the mission of this subreddit which is to help people stop smoking.
Please limit your discussions to supporting your fellow leaves. Thanks!
Badges: We get occasional requests for badges -- please see this post: http://bit.ly/K0Y6Hg
There is, however, group of /leaves at Chains -- sign up and chart your daily progress with us.
Other things that will be removed:
Posts regarding strategies, wait times, products or anything related to drug testing.
Posts in which the sole subject is tolerance breaks or moderation management. This subreddit is for people who have the intention to quit or are trying to sort out whether they should, not for people who will resume or continue.
Posts discussing or advocating pot substitutes or any remedies other than mutual support and the sharing of our experience. There are medications that can help mitigate the effects of quitting or conditions that might have contributed to addiction, but you should get those from a doctor, not an Internet chat group.
Links to outside media -- essays, songs, videos, will be considered on a case-by-case basis, but please understand that they will most (most) likely be removed. These things can be inspiring, but it's better to talk about your inspiration in your own words. Both the writing and the reading are much more helpful to you and everyone.
