Having pain in my chest while taking long breath. I do smoke sometimes but not regularly.
This is generally a pleural pain. Stop smoking. Do regular aerobic exercises steam inhalations 4 to 5 times a day of few days will suffice. If still you have pain do follow up. Regards.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Please try to stop smoking at the earliest. It has many health benefits in the long run. When you stop suddenly, you may get withdrawal symptoms like restlessness, irritability, lack of concentration, increased hunger, sleep disturbance, headache, impatience, anxiety, depression, etc. If you have them please don’t get back to smoking, take nicotine gum or lozenge or patch. They are available in all medical shops. You don’t need a prescription from doctors. Use 2 mg gum if you smoke less than 25 cigarettes/day. Use 4 mg gum if you smoke more than 25 cigarettes/day. First 6 weeks, use 1 gum every 1 – 2 hours. Reduce it in week 7 – 9 to one gum every 2 – 4 hours. In week 10 – 12, reduce it further to 1 gum every 4 -8 hours. By 3 months, you will be able to stop both cigarettes and gum fully without any withdrawal symptoms. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it like vacation or books or new mobile. Smoking is a chronic relapsing condition like diabetes and B.P. So please don’t worry if you restart smoking. Start all over again to stop. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like smoking friends, along with alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will like a passing cloud. All the best.

Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.

Stage fear is very high that distroid my life, wht should I do for clearing issue ?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Stage fear is one of the top most fears in the world. The main reason is that people are worried about what the audience will think about them. Well, everyone makes a mistake on the stage and people are usually very tolerant of this. Also you know your content best. The audience doesn't know it. So even if you make a mistake, be prepared to apologise genuinely or cover it up effortlessly. If you have any queries about this please contact me on private chat.

Dear, You are not alone. Almost all adolescent people do have such attitude. It is not your fault but your developmental mile stone. You are learning LIFE. Don't worry. You have concentration if you are able to watch movie for 2 hours continuously. In the matter of studies, you do not have attention because you are not interested in it. You are not interested because you do not have any concrete aim.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You are already aware that weed causes many physical and mental health problems. You must quit weed. The best method is to use your will power. There are other methods like deaddiction therapy. But without willpower deaddiction therapy too fails. Please be self motivated and use your will power. I suggest online counselling and deaddiction therapy. Take care.

My name is osama and I am suffering from smoking I want to leave that but I can not so please give me some suggestion to stop this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You can if you persevere. 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.

Dear, welcome to lybrate. Ocd is a neurochemical disorder. Ocd is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the symptoms without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and ocd related therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. Common causes of temporary unconsciousness include: low blood sugar. Low blood pressure. Syncope (loss of consciousness due to lack of blood flow to the brain) dehydration. Problems with the heart's rhythm. Neurologic syncope (loss of consciousness caused by a seizure, stroke, or transient ischemic attack) straining etc. I suggest you to consult a physician to investigate and diagnose. Take care.

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. Take care.

What we as a society say and ask for from our children, can sometimes be drastically different from nature's plan. This is the age of the body's sexual growth and maturity. Along with the bodily changes, hormones cause changes in the brain too. Physical attraction, fantasies, sexual desire, etc are all natural and normal for teenagers. You cannot change how nature has designed your daughter. That said, you definitely need to guide her behavior. At this point in her life you cannot control her completely, nor can you leave her totally independent. My suggestion would be that you start accepting her for who she is. Accept that she likes someone or is attracted to someone. Then you guide her behavior respectfully, without being demanding and instructive. Confess your fears and anxieties. Ask her about her fears and apprehensions. Give suggestions based on your experience. It is ok to tell her what you expect, but gradually she is going to make more and more independent and self-centered choices. That's part of growing up. So be prepared. Teenagers take time to learn how to balance peer pressure and parental pressure. Don't push her to an extreme. If you treat your daughter with growing respect, you will be respected. If you become rigid and demanding, she will act stubbornly too.

I am very depressed because of my marks got in an exam. What I do to less my depression.
Hi there ~ there are many ways to overcome depression. The symptoms of depression are the ones that usually are amenable to treatment. Easy to treat are the ones where you have missed out on the daily routines. Eat regular meals, drink enough water, exercise on a daily basis, sleep well and do not break the schedule. You know that you will ultimately get over the fact that you marks will not matter in the future but for the time being you need to take care of yourself and tide this crisis to go on forward and beat depression. Take care and have a lovely day! sincerely,
