I want to quit smoking but I feel I can't. Please help me for quit smoking.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
Motivate yourself for gradually stopping it by reducing the frequency of cigarettes per day. You may take nicotine buffered chewing gums for few days as a substitute of smoking. Gradually you have to reduce these chewing gums & ultimately stop it. Strong will power is needed for not to re-start again. All the best.

How to improve concentration power.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Stress can foil memory and concentration. The distraction it leads to will not allow focus on a particular topic or subject. So locate the stressor and deal with it soon to recover good memory. It will be easier to work with a counselor on the emotions that are causing the stress. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. In the meantime do some of the following: 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, broccoli, blueberries, fish, coconut oil, wheat sprouts, tomatoes, sunflower seeds, eat dark chocolate, 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. 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. 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.

Dear , confidence is not something that can be learned like a set of rules; confidence is a state of mind. Positive thinking, practice, training, knowledge and talking to other people are all useful ways to help improve or boost your confidence levels. Confidence comes from experience. Can you tell me what are those scenarios where you feel low confidence? please post a private question to me and I will help you regain your confidence. Take care.

Hi I am giving CA final exam in next 2 months but I am finding difficulties in concentration n focusing on studies.My mind starts day dreaming. Please help

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Obviously, to complete your CA that won?t do. Something is bothering you, and it could be the very exams you are attempting to do. CA is a demanding and challenging exam in itself. If you have prepared well all these months and perhaps years too, you should feel good. But your level of fear may be rocketing up to shake up your confidence. Check with fellow-students with group study whether you are prepared, and that will give you an idea to build up your self-assessment. Do some relaxation exercises, and sort out your fear on sound basis, and remove all irrational notions. Do not attach yourself to the results. Pay attention to the process i.E. Your studying, to see that you are doing the right thing. Take small breaks often between studies to break the monotony. Exercise every day, sleep well, and eat nourishing food. Meditation and some Yoga exercises do help too. For more exercises to help concentration, you may write to me.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. From the given details, it seems that you have lack of self confidence related to general anxiety. General anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Sir, I have been smoking from 2 years and my age is 20 I have quieted smoking from last one month and feeling better now. My question is what should I do to make my lungs healthy?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Congratulations on your success with quitting smoking. This is incredible and you must keep it up under any circumstances. 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.

Often anxiety and depression go hand in hand. You need to seek some counseling help and if the person feels you need to meet with a doctor kindly do so with all cooperation. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Psychiatrist, Chennai
Simple steps to help you quit smoking:

1. Smoke one cigarette less in a day and keep reducing till you stop.
2. Smoke in front of the mirror to realize you are smoking. Sometimes you may smoke without even realizing as it has become a habit.
3. Keep the cigarettes in the opposite pocket(for example in your left pocket if you usually keep them in your right pocket) or your bag so that you are aware whenever your hand goes for a cigarette.
4. Buy one cigarette at a time and not as a whole packet.
5. Write down the reasons why you are trying to quit in a small paper and keep it in your pocket all the time.

Most importantly NEVER LOSE CONFIDENCE.
On an average smokers make five to ten quit attempts before they ultimately quit.

Hello Dr. I need to ask you that how to get rid of stress. As I take lot of stress. How do I tackle it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Hello Dr. I need to ask you that how to get rid of stress. As I take lot of stress. How do I tackle it.
First of all, the intensity of stress is in the perception. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Apart from that, all your emotions need to be dealt with by expression i.e. you need to talk about the feelings. Then you need to exercise regularly, eat fiber foods (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), sleep at least 8 hours every day, learn Yoga and meditation, learn stress management, and do a personality development course. Because you may be into studies, follow a tight schedule, with good breaks and study habits. If group study helps you, do it with the right people. If tutoring is required, arrange for the same. These should see you through successfully without the stress.

Dear Jayant Forgetting and difficulty to recall names, task at hand can be associated with inattention, being anxious, nervous & stressed out while trying to memorize/ recall. It may be due to cognitive disorders. What is your age? Have you suffered a big loss because of memory issues. You need to consult a psychiatrist/ psychologist to get to the root of your problem.

My son aged 27 years had a serious accident 10 years ago. He suffered from head injury and was operated upon. Though he is alright now, he gets angry very soon. Sometimes he reacts to things in a very inappropriate manner. Is there any link between the head injury and the anger etc.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hi, Thanks for writing in; welcome to the forum. Yes, it would certainly seem that there is a link. Many possibilities exist as to the exact nature of the problem that has resulted in inappropriate behavior and anger. The first thing that any expert would consider is an organic personality change or a frontal lobe syndrome that characteristically presents with the exact symptoms that you have mentioned. Other causes include anxiety, depressive and psychotic changes due to head injury. The exact diagnosis can be made based on a review of all records and an interview with the patient. The organic personality change can be improved to an extent with treatment. The other causes that I mentioned also can get better and have higher chances of getting better than the organic personality. Please consult an expert in person for exact diagnosis and management. Take care!
