I am 18 years old and I have bad habit of smoking. I want to stop this thing. What I should do?

Breaking a habit is something you need to learn, all the factors that reinforce the habit need to be explored first.

Hi! I am 26 years old and I have been smoking for past 6years. I started with 2-3 cigarettes a day then near to a packet. Now I have reduced it to 2-3 again. Is there any way that I can detoxify my body completely and quit smoking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, there is a way but not by reduction: ideally you should give it up immediately and completely. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Hi. Your symptoms are related to thyroid problem and anxiety. Stress is causing gas problem. For treatment of acidity and gas problem you require not only medicines but also strict lifestyle and dietary changes. Avoid spicy oily and outside food avoid heavy meals in dinner avoid excess tea/coffee sleep properly, do walk for sometime after meals rather than lying down flat. Take your meals at time. Take more of green vegetables, fruits and salad. For medications you can consult me online. Continue taking thyroid medications on time.

Psychologist, Palakkad
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.

When I study for exams I read well and get prepared for that but if I entered in to exam hall I can't remember what I studied for the exam I am getting lack of memory power.

POST GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY, Masters in clinical psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
HI lybrate-user It seems that you get nervous. When you enter the examination hall make yourself comfortable, take a few deep breath to reduce tension. Take your time to read through all the question's and instructions carefully. Pick the questions that relate well to your revision, and start writing. Don't think about result just do your best. For improving memory power try to involve yourself in reading! instead of just reading you need to read and think about what you reading and summarize it in your memory and make a short notes. Revise often and re- read to your notes as much as you can. Be sure to get enough sleep and eat healthy. All the best.

I get angry very easily. I beat my colleagues in my company when I get angry. Please suggest some solutions.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There is something seriously wrong if you can lose control to this extent. Kindly meet with a counselor along with your parents and see what they identify. This amount of loss of control indicates that there was something that happened early in your life that has not been sorted. Sometimes you may be angry because you are scared: fear is a weakening feelings whereas anger supplies power. so people sometimes chose to be angry when they are scared. I hope you are doing good physical workout to expend the energy of anger and that will help you deal with the anger without the energy.

This could be a symptom of cannabis related psychiatric disorder. cannabis can induce or precipitate a number of psychiatric conditions including psychotic disorders. many of these may need medications and obviously, complete abstinence from ganja/ bhang/ charas/ sulfa/ weed/ marijuana. If you can elaborate a little more on this fear I can suggest medicines that will bring rapid relief.

Hello Dr. I am a 18years old I want to quite smoking what I do for leave cigarettes. I am using a kwikinic but didn't get results.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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 I am suffer from stammering. My confidence level is very low when I stutter. Is there any remedy for it. Pliz suggest me.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

Hello, yes at this age, it is little hard for you to stay somewhere you do not have friends. You could take this as an opportunity (or a personal challenge to do your best in a given situation!) and try following things. 1. Try and make new friends (i am sure there will be people around). They doesn't need to your age - little older or younger will do as well. Hey, it is better than not having friend at all. 2. Go for a long bicycle rides and explore the new place. 3. Don't have bicycle - may be go for a long walk or even better long runs. 4. If you are into reading - best time to grab a book and spend your time reading it - there won't be anyone to disturb you or break your link! if you are not into reading. Then try reading something in an area of your interest. For example adventure, science fiction or whatever sounds interesting. Make sure to grab a thinner book though! 5. If you are into building things. Grab paper, wood, wood chips, stones whatever sparkles your eyes and start building. And if you are not into it. Try something anyway - you never know it might become your new hobby the bottom line is instead of staying in a victim zone where you keep blaming the situation and passing every minute as if it is a life time (a little exaggeration here.) take charge, stand up, go out, do something. Replace the word boredom with curiosity. That will give you new eyes to look around and I am sure once that happens - you could turn this into one of the best vacations ever and your friends back home will be so jealous of you. Remember it is always - it is all how you look at it! make your vacations the grand one. Enjoy and do share your experience. Best wishes,

Hello, I understand that having a baby is very important for you and somewhere in your mind, probably your time clock is ticking away saying that you are getting older now and may not have a baby. And you are so keen to have a baby of your own? this thought alone might be a cause for more anxiety, sense of loss, sadness and anger with yourself. However, I would like to bring to your notice that overthinking about this or anything else will only bring emotional imbalance leading to more bp fluctuations. Our mind and body are connected and any mental and emotional imbalance causes an imbalance in the body. 1. Please exercise everyday within your capacity to burn off the excess calories and fat intake. Exercising will also help in uplifting your mood and improve your self image and give you a sense of control over your body. 2. Eat only healthy food limiting oil, sugars, processed and refined foods to the bare minimum. Raw and whole food diet having more of fruits, vegetables, whole grains is known to control and reduce rising bp. Add a source of good fats like walnuts, nuts and oil seeds to improve your heart functioning. Cut out meats and unhealthy cooking styles and choose steaming, stir frying over boiling and frying. 3. Yoga, meditation etc to control your anxiety and calm down the mind to help become emotionally stable and peaceful. This will also keep your bp stable. Bhramri and anulom vilom are especially 2 pranayamas very helpful in bringing emotional balance. 4. Counselling to help you learn tips and techniques to manage stressful events without losing your mental and emotional equilibrium. You will be able to cope with stress and learn to manage stress and tension with ease. 5. Only when you are healthy, will your baby be healthy. It will need a lot of attention and care when it arrives. What kind of life do you want to give your child? please consider the chances of you not feeling fit enough to take care of the baby keeping your health in mind. 6. Consider other options of having a child: would you rather consider adopting a baby over putting your body through this stress. Or would you like to volunteer your time in a childrens playhome or shelters where abandoned children are taken care of? there are number of ways that you can still meet your need to bring up a child and feel worthwhile and fulfilled. Please consider your options and their pros and cons before rushing in to any decision. Take care.

What is the best way to get rid of any sort of obsessive compulsive disorder? Is it possible to treat this condition entirely without taking any medical drugs?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, How much your day today life is affected by OCD need to be assessed. How much your thinking time is wasted with your obsession also need to be assessed. Then, I may be able to answer your question. Yes, it can be treated without drugs with Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) alone. This therapy needs about 18-20 sessions of half to one and half hour sessions and a co therapist from your family or friends.

For this to come up at this age is significant because it is the last chance you will get to resolve it before it becomes a permanent negative trait. About the issue itself: do you know if this is a family trait, or is the family by anyways less to socialize, or have you had any problem with fear because of some family or childhood experience? have you ever been embarrassed in public by someone that it has left an indelible mark in your personality? you can take the answers to these questions to a counselor and resolve the same. Anyway, you must deal with your fear of people and it will be the best solution to your problem. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (i suggest you join the toastmasters club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone: it is called performance anxiety. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too! there are three important developments to have to make an autonomous personality: awareness, intimacy, and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of social anxiety to disappear from your life for good. It is also possible that after many performances, you will find it easier and easier to face and sing in front of audiences.

How to increase my learning ability?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storing and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Post a private question to me and I shall provide you more tips. Take care.

I was a drunkard, now slowly reduced consumption of alcohol. I was having piles complaint, but somehow managed with some homeo medicine. I am now in my sixties. Fortunately not having sugar, bp etc. But one of colleague got married and having a male child aged 6, running 34 years of age is addict to alcohol. How can I be helpful him?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The proof is in the pudding. Show him how much it has affected your life and that you can help him in this situation. You must, however, give up liquor completely to really feel safe that you are out of your own addiction. In fact your friend may just turn around and tell you exactly that. But I really like your intention and it is bound to have an effect, if your addiction was very severe and you have managed to reduce it to this extent. So do offer all the support and be there for him to see him through. Take him for de-addiction either to a hospital or rehabilitation center and then he will find it easier. He needs to avoid the company of his drinking friends, places, occasions, and events to help him in the first 21 days of his abstinence. He must seek professional help and stay with the therapy until he is out of it completely. That might take up to 3 years to be absolutely sure. Will you stand by him until then? super.
