Sir Before 10 days I decided to suicide but someone stops me. Actually I am tired of my life. But I know suicide is not the only option. But I can't live without him but my family not support us. Sir please tell me something to get rid of tensions because I don't want to take any wrong step.
I am not getting good sleep due to depression. Always thinking of past events and expired relatives.
Sir, I am aged 76 yrs, depressed and not getting sleep in time later in the night up to 4 am and always thinking about past events and relatives died long time back.
Hi sir. I suffer from severe chest pains and pains at the back of my head, memory loss, speech difficulty, internal body heat, difficulties in moving. I have been masturbating for over 12 years today. What disease could be the possible cause of my problems?
Sometimes it increases beyond 140/90 But comes to 130/82 in 15 mins. If rise is more then I take cloba 5 which is been advised by doctor then it comes normal. He say it is due to anxiety & phobia. Is it correct?
My brothers is under stress. He is not able to sleep, he keeps thinking about things which are not going to happen. We as family fully supported him and tried help him understand that what he is thinking is not correct, but he is not able to remove negative thoughts from his mind. What could be the issue and what we should do now?
I have no sadness or hopelessness neither I have thoughts of suicide but I have loss interest in studies and games and even watching TV I loss my analysing and logical thinking power. I wanna know if I am depressed or not.

Addiction is the absolute dependency on a particular substance or situation. Substance addiction includes a variety of substances apart from alcohol and drugs. Examples include porn, food, chocolate, nicotine, etc. Situation addiction includes gambling, shopping and sex among others. The problem in our society with addiction is it is treated like a choice than as a major problem faced by an individual. De-addiction is the process of ridding the individual of his dependence on certain substances or activities.
- Rehabilitation psychology studies the process of de-addiction and helps addicts blend with the normal lifestyle. Rehab centers offer several forms of therapy to reduce substance usage.
- Group therapy is always the go to form of therapeutic technique to deal with cases of addiction owing to the common feeling among users that people who aren’t addicted and do not know what they’re going through. In those cases, it is rather important to have support from a group of people who are exactly where they are.
- Family therapy is also essential to make the individual know how their loved ones feel and also remind them of the unconditional support. Some rehab centers also use the horse therapy (focuses on interaction with horses which facilitates emotional and occupational development in patients) which is rather interesting to witness.
- In addition to therapy, rehab centers teach life skills and cooperation. Apart from all this, drugs are also prescribed to deal with addiction along with the weekly scheduled personal therapy sessions.
Although an unfamiliar concept in India, halfway homes are the next step after the rehab. The individuals learn different skills and ways to manage themselves outside the house while still continuing their therapy. This is done to make sure one doesn’t relapse right after the rehabilitation has been completed. Most rehabs also suggest support group meetings. Even otherwise support groups are extremely effective in the de-addiction process. ‘Alcoholics Anonymous’ and ‘Narcotics Anonymous’ are two of the most widely managed support groups around the world.
Addiction is an immense issue which has spiraled out of control in today’s times. However, it is necessary to understand it isn’t the question of the individual’s morality. The removal of labels and stigma is essential in the entire process. Support from loved ones is an extremely important step towards de-addiction, right after the acceptance that one is addicted. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.
