Stress is very subjective and if you use it properly you ll succeed. Start following your own self study time table with a difficult stuff on a priority. It would give you an organized day and help in your studies. Start yoga and meditation. Read novels. Cultivate your hobbies but for a brief time since its 10th now. Group discussion would b helpful too. And bottomline your study should b your priority now all the best!

Dear , anxiety and related symptoms are body's defense mechanism against stress and fear and therefore you cannot fully eliminate it. When the symptoms become more frequent and prominent, it is called anxiety disorder. It is a disorder and not a disease. Understanding anxiety helps you manage it properly. Education, awareness, cbt, ret etc are the therapeutical areas with which anxiety disorder is managed effectively. Please post a detailed private question to me and I am sure I will be able to help and cure your problem. Take care.

I think you are well advised to meet with this neighbor and explain your predicament viz-a-viz needing the dog for a therapeutic reason. Without that reason he may rightfully feel annoyed that the dog's yelping may cause him disturbance to him and his family. People are very understanding if explanations are proffered. After all you may have disturbed a rather peaceful neighborhood!

You must go for counseling soon. Counseling will help in training you will skills and techniques to cope with the daily challenges in life and will give you a fair chance to manage your life. You must also develop your constitution to make it fit enough to cope with fear, felt many times unnecessarily. You may be taking normal fear and converting it into abnormal fear like anxiety and so on. Take care of the following: Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be.

Dear user. I can understand. Thinking is a complex mechanism and Your mind's job is to think. If you allow you to think without having control over it, it will always wander into negative territories. You should train yourself to keep your thoughts under your control. Cognitive therapy will help you in this case. Take care.

Regularly smoking and drinking alcohol, so that I need to check my body for present status. Please advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will need to go for a complete medical check up since you have been into these habits regularly to know your present status vis-a-vis the addiction. The combination of alcohol and smoking is deadly for your health. I am so glad that you are seeking to get rid of these habits and that will play a major role in your recovery. You must stop them both, abruptly and immediately. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of these habits. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the smoking and drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i. E. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as your primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after whichever treatment approach you choose, you must attend AA meetings and your family must also attend some Al-anon meetings to help them deal with their own issues regarding your alcoholism and to support you too in the recovery process. I congratulate you on this fabulous decision that will benefit you firstly and your entire family. You are taking action that will have major bearing to many lives.

This is rather unfortunate. The least this girl could have done was to inform you before hand and not after four years! You could have also been smart and found out earlier: bu then perhaps you did not have marriage on your mind. Anyway, even if she loves you, she has chosen to favor her family more and that is an unpleasant choice but you will have to accept it. You could perhaps ask her whether your parents could ask for her hand in marriage. If she is reluctant, then there may be more to it and I think you are better off not getting involved any further. You should immediately get rid of all her reminders in the form of gifts, memories, letters, mails, do not frequent all the old haunts you went with her, etc. Generally you must get her out of your system completely. Go out and socialize and enjoy yourself but do not talk ill of her for any reason. You will find a suitable girl because you are still very young, and I hope you are well focused with yoru studies and career. Build that up and you will become very marketable for marital pursuits.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.
