I am 37 year old men I have smoking habit please suggest how to leave it?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , everyone knows smoking is injurious to health and should be avoided at any cost. Will power plays an important part in quitting smoking. There are other methods like nicotine gum and patches. These could be used for management of craving. I suggest you to consult a psychologist. I think one or two telephone counseling sessions with me should provide you with insight to your problem and tips to over come it. Please let me know if you are willing for online counseling session. Take care.

How can I concentrate on study. I usually thing about sleep whenever I do study. Why?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
When you do not understand and enjoy what you study, you get bored of it and hence feel sleepy. Try to learn things in a simplified way. Divide your study in related parts, correlate whenever you study with what you studies earlier. If you still face concentration problems consult me for medicines. That will help you good luck.

These can be symptoms of depressive illness or anxiety disorder. Anxiety and depressive illness is a medical/psychiatric illness that can be treated effectively by antidepressants and cognitive behavior therapy. So one has to see a psychiatrist at the earliest. Psychiatrist after assessment and evaluation will decide on the best antidepressant medication that is suitable to you. These antidepressant medications are not sedatives or addictive in a nature. The course may last for 4-6 months depending upon the severity of the illness.

Rosacea is a skin condition that affects parts of your face. Symptoms can include facial flushing, facial redness, spots, thickening of your skin, and eye problems such as dry eyes and sore eyelids. There is no permanent cure for rosacea. There is nothing you can do to prevent rosacea from starting. However, treatments can ease the symptoms and can be really effective. The treatments used may vary, depending on what symptoms develop. Treatment may need to be adjusted over time, depending on your response to treatments and if you develop different symptoms The most common things reported that may trigger the skin to flush are: Extremes of temperature (in particular, excessive heat), sunlight,...etc Alcoholic drinks. Strenuous exercise. Stressful situations. Sunlight. Spicy food. Hot drinks.

You must go for some anger management work to a counselor and only if you have resolved that problem should you call her also into counseling. There is no point trying to get her back without making the change that has been hampering the relationship so far. If she is so good and has all those lovely qualities, then you have gone and messed the relationship up and hopefully not to an irreparable level. It is not enough to have no bad qualities, you must be a satisfying husband and above all, she must be respected for who she is. The first tow years of any marriage is very critical to the future of that relationship and it seems you have already sabotaged it. You will need to start all over again but you will need some professional help and you must seek it fast.

I want you to help me out with a problem that I am enduring right now. I have been married for 10+ years with two kids. My husband has been suffering from erectile dysfunction for quite sometime and we had gone to a sexologist who suggested some routine tests and a penile doppler but the doctor had said that everything was normal with him but gave him Sifasi 5000 IU and asked him to inject it once in three days and also gave Arginitric to consume daily. This happened two months ago and he has been taking the meds off and on. The problem is that he still has the same problem and is anxious most of the time. He has lost interest in everything and he does not like to spend time with either me, the kids or his dog though he claims most of the time that I do not spend time with him. Last week he lied to me and spent time from morning till night with a colleague of his with whom he worked five years back (unmarried girl) and had gone to a film, restaurant and ECR and when he returned home at 10 p.m. I questioned him to which he said I did not have any right to question him. We had a fight and from then he is not talking to me. I want to know what his problem is and why he did such a thing all of a sudden. My kids and I are very upset because of his weird behaviour. Please help.

Hello, Give him homoeopathic medication - Schwabe's Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks. Management: There are few yoga poses which helps in calming the mind and relieves stress. Exercises: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (The mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) Anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like Balasan, Setu Bandha Sarvangasan, Uttanasan, Garudasan, Savasana, Triconasana, Viprita Karani, Marjaryasana, Dhyana, Bhujangasana, Anulom-Vilum, Pranayam, etc. Another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of love/future/marriage, you are having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

How to control the anger?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand.I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.
