My husband drinks a lot and I am not able to control this. His drinking habit is increasing day by day, he also chews masala and smoking is his another New habit. I have tried everything to convince him to quit all this but nothing worthy. He himself doesn't want to stop this, he promises he will quit but he is drunk the same day. Please help me with this. How can I make him not drink without letting him know it.

Hi, I know this is distressing. First I wish to inform you that drinking for your husband is NOT a habit. It is an addiction and medical science classifies this as a medical disorder. Do's and don'ts for you: Please don't plead him or make him promise not to drink. It is like pleading a patient of TB to stop coughing. Your entreaties make him feel guilty and the depressed feeling is compensated by drinking again. Masala and smoking are their lame efforts at hiding from you that he is drunk. What then should I do? The best solution so far that I have found is to take help of AlAnon. This is complimentary support group of the world famous AA. AA stands for Alcoholics Anonymous. It is a support group that is spread all over the world. Every city and suburb has a group that quietly gathers on one day. Al Anon is for the spouse of person who has the medical condition of Alcohol dependence. In AlAnon you will get to meet women whose husbands had been alcoholics, but have now quit. These women guide you how you should face this problem and they guide you on how to help your husband quit drinking. The other option, which doesn't work well is to have your husband admitted in hospital under a psychiatrist who will put him under a deaddiction treatment regime. Get help from AA, AlAnon or psychiatrist. That is the way to help your husband and your family. You will require courage and perseverance. My best wishes to you for strength, wisdom and God's luck. Best

How important is diet for a person of 25 years old, who is working and also preparation for higher education? I work 12 hours a day in a manufacturing unit. Finding time to study regularly and maintain my diet is very hard altogether. Kindly enlighten me with some tips so as to be efficient with my studies which is my almost priority? Also please tell me how much to sleep regularly? Also about power naps.

The last part of your question is very relevant. If you are studying hard, you will need at least 9 hours of sleep. The diet is very important and so the suggestions below will help in many regards for your studies. Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Actually your loneliness is due to 2 reasons------ 1.Rude behaviour of you husband as you had high expectations from him. 2.Mentally diverted your thoughts towards your boyfriend who is abroad as you think that he care for you a lot than your husband. But you are wrong here.Yes ,I am sorry to say but we call it cheating only Pooja.See this is just the beginning of your life and this is the time to enjoy life.Be loyal to your husband.It is a universal fact that FEELINGS ATTRACTS FEELINGS and you have no feelings for your husband and in return you also get the same neglected feelings from your husband.So just try to forget your friend abroad and give your full love ,attention and care to your husband and see how beautiful is your life.Dont try to travel in two boats simultaneously,you will drown one day and ruin your life.

What precautions are taken to remove depression, how to develop self confidence to get good job?
Depression is just like any other illness. It cannot be removed once you are suffering from it. It has to be treated with medications and counselling. Do not label yourself as suffering from depression before consulting a psychiatrist. In order to prevent depression should develop healthier ways of dealing with daily stress and factors that may precipitate depression. For more queries or doubts consult online. Take care.

Depression and stress does lower the sexual desire and performance. Try getting over it. It looks like a temporary phase. May be get a counseling session. Impatience and getting the job done attitude plays a major role in pre-mature ejaculation. Try doing regular chores slowly and patiently. It will definitely help.

Panic Disorder - 8 Signs You are Suffering from it

MD, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Panic Disorder - 8 Signs You are Suffering from it

A panic attack is the result of a sudden enormous burst of fear and anxiety. The heart tends to beat faster and breathing becomes difficult. A person gets a feeling of going crazy and dries up. If the treatment is not taken on time, this condition can aggravate to panic disorder and such other problems. It is totally curable if the symptoms are addressed properly. 

Symptoms of panic disorder:
Panic attacks can lead someone to panic in any place. It takes only 10 minutes to reach its peak and typically lasts for 25-20 minutes. A patient is a prime candidate of a panic disorder if he frequently suffers from the following symptoms:

  1. The discomfort of the chest
  2. Profound sweating
  3. Hyperventilation
  4. Fear of losing control of life
  5. Feeling of detachment from the surrounding
  6. A choked feeling
  7. Heart palpitation
  8. Sudden cold flashes and tingling sensation

Apart from the above symptoms, if a patient suffers from anxiety in between panic attacks in anticipation of another panic attacks, he could be suffering from panic disorders. it is often witnessed that patients suffering from panic disorder avoid certain situations and places.

What causes panic disorder?
Panic disorder results from frequent panic attacks and the cause of the latter are not very clear. It is believed that certain life transitions such as divorce, getting married, acute stress, the death of loved one can result in panic attacks. A person has higher chances of getting this disease if it runs in the family. Some medical conditions that can cause panic disorder are hyperthyroidism, use of stimulants such as cocaine, caffeine and mitral valve prolapse.

How it can be treated?
Behavioral treatment: Cognitive behavioral therapy is widely considered as one of the effective treatments for panic attacks. This form of treatment effectively focuses on thinking patterns and behavior that triggers panic attacks. It helps you to look at your apprehensions in a better light. Another method of treatment for panic disorder is called exposure therapy. This method exposes a patient sensation of panic in a controlled environment. The trick is to deal with it in a much better way. For instance, you might be asked to cross the road. When you successfully manage to do it without getting crashed, you are less likely to panic in foreseeable future.
Medication Treatment: Medication can address the problem temporarily, but is not a good solution for long term. Certain medication such as antidepressants and Benzodiazepines are prescribed by doctors with time duration of every 1-2 hours. These are anti-anxiety drugs and gives immediate relief from panic attacks. However, it should be ensured that these medicines are only consumed once a doctor prescribes it.

Dear, I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Hi Librate user Good to know, you are preparing for civil services exams and all the best for your exam. At first you should try to motivate yourself for your studies. Think about your successful friend or relatives and to be like them. Think of what you will achieve by studies. Tell yourself that after you achieve your goal, you will free to have fun. Try to take a short break after every hour. If your brain has to concentrate consistently for hours, at a time, it loses processing power and your cocentration power slips. Thanks.

Sex relations are very much trouble and unnecessary problem. Feel that I am good boy. I do not need any other relations like that. I do not want any other problems. Sex is not only cause of enjoyment. There are so many ways to enjoy and recreate yourself. When you settle go sex with your life partner. Up to that develop good career and strong personality. Feel always confident. Develop busy work. Do not think too much about sex. Ok best of luck.

I just don't enjoy the things I used to, and I don't feel much like visiting friends or family. Is this part of aging?

Dear lybrate-user, definitely this is not part of ageing. You are just 19 and you cannot have the feelings of ageing now. I think you are disappointed, frustrated, irritated. Disappointment is an epitome in life which removes the interest from a person. Don't worry. Once you cross the teen age period, your problem will be solved. You may consult a psychologist for counseling. Take care.
