Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, try this method we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help.

Dear Karan, Welcome to lybrate. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Hi Doctors, I am 36 yrs old. I am addicted to smoking for almost 15 years now and smoke 15-18 cigarettes daily. Need your help and consultation to get rid of smoking entirely forever. Can it be possible? Kindly also let me know about the treatment, how long will be the expected treatment duration and cost. Kindly let me know in case any further information is needed. Thanks! Deb.

I do not know where you live. So you will need to check with the local rehabilitation facilities offered there. Yes, of course you can give up smoking at any time. The desire to want to give it up is the first positive point in your favor. You are smoking too much anyway for your own good. Stopping is urgent and important. To break the habit you need to quit it for 21 days as the first phase ? this is the most difficult phase. You must continue abstinence for another 7 weeks to make it relatively easy. After 3 years of total abstinence you can be somewhat safe. Yes, there is medication to ease quitting smoking. Please consult a doctor for the same. You have been smoking for a long time now but you can reverse almost all the damage from it by quitting now. Just keep at it till you succeed. Quitting smoking is very difficult but not impossible due to the following reasons: smoking has certain conditions for the urge to be stimulated. These can vary throughout the day. You need to de-condition around the habit. There is a physical and psychological craving that has to be countered. There are some medicines that ease the craving, for which you will need to consult a doctor. Some measures you can take are: avoid people, activities, and places where the need to smoke is highest. There is also the time of day when the urge is greater; occupy yourself with planned, alternative, and interesting activities. During all these times do deep breathing exercises. Buy some chewing gum or nicotine gum or nicotine patches to tide over the urge. Replace the conditions or associations with new behaviors to affect the drive. Frequent ?no smoking zones? when in need. Tell the whole world that you have given up smoking, and ask for support from all of them. Your oral need may increase so ?pacify? it by indulging in eating, drinking health beverages, sucking on hard candy etc. Persevere in very difficult moments by sticking to your resolution because the impulse will disappear pretty fast. Get the support of an addiction counselor to process the resolution. You may never need institutional care but get the support of a Smokers Anonymous group.

You are going through grief, which is normal after break up from loved. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

Old Age and Loneliness: How to Tackle it?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Old Age and Loneliness: How to Tackle it?

Elderly people are usually prone to social isolation which can take a toll on their health. With physical inability or limitations to move around, socializing also gets limited and loneliness comes into your life. Thus, a major section of the senior population tends to have psychological issues as well which may be caused due to the loss of company and lesser interaction as well as a generation gap in trying to deal with younger people. If you are finding it hard to cope with loneliness, here are a few initiatives worth giving a try:

  1. Meet New People: Try giving an effort into meeting new people and enjoying their companionship. With time, few of these relationships might culminate into deep friendship. You can always turn to these people for emotional support as well as keeping company.

  2. Community Volunteering: Volunteer your time engaging yourself in local community activities and social events. Also try and get into interest groups where you can find people who have common interests as yours.

  3. Get back to your long lost hobbies: Re-kindle your long-lost zeal by adopting or getting back to hobbies you truly love, for instance, art and craft, gardening, sewing, playing an instrument, reading and writing, puzzles and writing to pen pals.

  4. Get a pet: Pets can add a new meaning to your life through their unconditional love. There is no greater joy than the joy of bringing up a pet. Ensure how don’t have allergy problems and will be able to keep up with the readily requirements of pets.

  5. Reminisce your good old days: Recollection would enhance your emotional health and will less likely make you feel withdrawn.

  6. Invite people over: In case you are home-bound, coming across people each day would be difficult. In that case invite your mates over tea or keep in touch with them through phone or internet. The internet is also a great resource to keep yourself occupied and to find hobbies that you can get into.

  7. Keep depression at bay: Loneliness can often make you fall prey to depression. Keep a check on any sign of physical or mental deterioration such as the feeling of despair and sadness, sleep-troubles, suicidal thoughts, unwillingness to take decisions, apathy and appetite loss.

  8. Help others: Use your acquired experiences and knowledge of your life-time in helping people out. Teach as well as learn something new each day.

  9. Write it down: Maintain a personal journal to pen down the things you are looking forward to or devise a plan for the forthcoming week.

  10. Take initiative: Do not wait for others to call on you. Instead travel by yourself to visit them. Seize every chance to initiate a conversation and smile even if life seems hard so that people are automatically attracted to you.

I am an alcoholic and drink almost a full bottle of rum when i drink can you please help me out in getting out of this

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I cannot believe that you can consume a full bottle of rum besides being a diabetic. There must be a printing mistake. Anyway you could be killing yourself and very fast at that. You definitely need rehabilitation immediately, where they will first take you through the detoxification process, to remove all the toxins related to alcohol. This will lighten the physical craving to a large extent and enable you to then do the follow up course of rehabilitation through the 12 Step program. If you have a family, they will be asked to attend some sessions both with you and independently, to facilitate their role during and after the recovery program. Besides the diabetic illness, other health parameters will need to be examined and treated. A psychological assessment is advised too. The rate of relapse is rather high but an alcoholic who has ?hit rock bottom? is ripe for intervention. If you are there, then your prognosis in your very first attempt at rehabilitation looks encouraging. This is a situation that cannot be treated without a residential setting for the best outcomes. This itself will be used by you to claim inability for various reasons and is part of the denial mechanism used by alcoholics. So do not show resistance to the proposals initiated by the recovery therapists, and just comply, for your own good and for that of others who are surely affected.

Cardiac problems have many risk factors like obesity, hypertension, smoking atherosclerosis, type A personality, depression and so on. So if you are underweight and depressed, you dont have one risk factor, but you still have other. In short, yes, even if you are underweight, depression, stress and anxiety can still influence cardiac health.

Dear lybrate-user, you have probably a grandiose delusion that you are a big businessman or big star or big rowdy. You feel irritated if your wife is talking on phone. You also have symptoms of depression like, no interest to brush, shave, dress or go to office. You have negative thoughts. You may be suffering from a bipolar disorder. You may be in mixed phase now. There are other medical, hormonal and few drugs/substances like alcohol, may be causing these symptoms. Please go to a psychiatrist and get diagnosed. It will be treated according to the diagnosis. Please do it soon before you lose your job and develop problems with your wife.
