Alcoholism is alcohol addiction. If you're ready to stop drinking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from alcoholism and alcohol abuse no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating alcoholism 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 alcoholism. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

How many acupuncture treatments does it take to relieve stress? Is this something that needs continual treatment?

Stress is more psychological rather then physical. Therefore, stress management therapy is more effective than acupuncture. Take care.

I am a 28yr old male suffering on bipolar disorder. May I marry? If so, is there chance of my child getting bipolar disorder?

You can marry if your psychiatrist says your disorder is controlled and there is greater chance to your child to be affected. But not certain. Or definitely inherited.

Hi. The symptoms you mentioned are quite suggestive of depression. Please understand that its an illness and you must take treatment for it otherwise it will become chronic. You cant treat depression yourself by trying to feel happy. So please take medical help as soon as possible.

How could I leave smoking? It is becoming addiction for me. And what are the names of gum which should I prefer to for leaving smoking.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Sir one of my relative facing schizophrenia he was afraid not existing thing and fear from people how it cure immediately. Can I know it?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Vijayawada
Your relative has to get treated by a psychiatrist. The medicines that she should use are called antipsychotic drugs and they are prescribed by psychiatrist after detailed assessment. Along with treatment your relative should also get counselling sessions/therapy. Called insight oriented psychotherapy. Initially pts have to use medication for 2 years at least after symptoms have subsided. In general there is no cure for schizophrenia but around 15% of schizophrenia pts recover and return to previous level of functioning. And rest are symptomatic in some way or another. Most importantly medication has to be used everyday without skipping doses and follow up with psychiatrist regularly as pts need dose titration if required. The patient should have good support from family n friends and should be treated with respect.

It develops gradually, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. But while a tremor may be the most well-known sign of Parkinson's disease, the disorder also commonly causes stiffness or slowing of movement.It is a disorder of the central nervous system that affects movement, often including tremors.More than i million people are diagnosed with Parkinsonism in India.Nerve cell damage in the brain causes dopamine levels to drop, leading to the symptoms of Parkinson's.Parkinson's often starts with a tremor in one hand.
