How to decide if you are getting into addiction ?
If you are developing tolerance -the same amount of substance is not able to produce the kick and you are using more amounts of substance. For eg starting with 1 peg of alcohol and reach to a full bottle.
Withdrawal - stopping the drug causes a discomfort in the body which will be reduced by taking the drug. For eg shaking off hand and not able to shortstop on stopping alcohol
Continuing the use in spite of harm to health or social or family problems. Eg having liver problem and taking alcohol. Accident after drunken driving and taking alcohol.

You could be into an anger-related depression and could do with some help. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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.

Yes anxiety can cause a lot of problems like reduces weight and decrease in appetite. But the good news is that it can be treated. At this age I don't see any reason as why you will get a heart disease. However anxiety can cause palpitation and patients think it is because of heart disease. This is not true. You can try relaxation exercises.

I am 25 years male and I have Pure-O Ocd which gives me intrusive thoughts and anxiety. What is the best treatment for this. Medicines didn't work for me.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Give the details and dosage of medications you took before concluding it to be resistant OCD. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly. Consult a psychiatrist. All the best.

Can a person suffer from depression with out anxiety or anxiety without depression.

SLE, Fellowship In Diabetology, Diploma In Psychology Mental Health And Illness, PLAB (MANCHESTOR, UK), FAGE, MBBS
General Physician, Bangalore
Yes, it is possible to have both together or seperately. It is often seen that anxiety is commonly seen in many people whereas depression has a more elaborate criterion to say that a person has depression. Many people can cope with anxiety but depression needs more attention. If you have any further query please ask.

Acute transient psychosis is diagnosed if the symptoms are less than 6 months only, when it exceeds it is schizophrenia. So kindly get your diagnosis re confirmed from the psychiatrist and follow his advice on treatment, you need to follow for many years, even life long. Make up your mind so that the thought of stopping medicines does not arise, and learn about social skills training and life style modification. All the best.

I'm 18 year old and always feel INSECURE in public. I have a fear inside, and due to it different types of negative things come to my mind. Like what if someone beat me, what if someone forcibly take my seat when I'm traveling in train/bus, what if someone break into my house and I won't be able to do anything. Also I am too skinny so that's also a reason for this. Plus low confidence. I was not like this before, since a year or two, I'm like this. Please help me to recover from this condition. It's too hard to live this way.

All your symptoms shows, your Vata has been disturbed. That's the reason, you are thin and think unnecessarily so much. To control your vata:- Practice deep breathing :-Lie down straight on a bed. Place your hand above your head (like, you are holding something 1 feet over your head) and take deep breath for 5 sec. ,hold it for 2 sec. And exhale for 5 sec. Practice this 3 times a day for 10-15 minutes. Practice Jalandher bandh, uddayan bandh and mool band in morning and evening (empty stomach. You can see the process over google. Do sesame oil massage all over the body. Prior going to bed. And in morning before 1/2 hour to bath. Do this with mild hand (do not generate heat. DOn't eat: apple, anar, All Gobhi, Matar.

I am 20 years old girl please suggest me some antidepressant medicines which are safe for me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Before suggesting medicines need to know your feelings and problems. Ask me privately. In a situational depression like this you need to achieve more mind control. Yoga and meditation are good. Also read or listen to music if you like it. And divert your mind by talking to good friend or relatives. Is your sleep deprived? you need constant support. Ask privately with all your details. Have you tested thyroid any time? ask privately. Www.Lybrate.Com/drsajeev.

Dear Ranjith , at your age we are all generally sensitive and find it difficult to take jokes. But we need to understand a couple of things - we feel bad only either we know that what our friends are saying is right - and we have been trying hard to hide our shortcomings , which our friend has pointed out- in such a case work on your shortcoming and thank your friend to be a true one. But many times our friends are trying to have a good time at our expense, question yourself - Do I real need such friends? Secondly, are they some authority in certifying others? The more you react to such jokes , the more fun they derive from teasing you, so start ignoring or begin to be part of it - once you stop reacting , their enjoyment would be over & then they will stop teasing. If the jokes are to do with your height or weight - raise your height by achieving something extraordinary - so that they look up to you, reduce your weight to look fit and agile.

I am 36 yr/m. Divorced 2 years ago. The zest, clarity of thoughts,& initiative is missing pre & post divorce. Sometimes I am happy & confident and sometimes just the opposite. I was consulting a psychiatrist, the results were temporary. Discontinued treatment as the medicines didn't work. I am in media, however lost job recently & career ain't smooth. Thankfully, my family is supportive. My thoughts, moods, action are not in sync with each other & am lazy. However my social behavior is normal. I request your advice in embracing a happy life.

Dear lybrate-user, I do not think you need psychiatric treatment at all. Divorce is almost equivalent to separation and due to that it is quite natural to have stress, disappointment and frustration. These three causes lack of interest, self respect and self confidence. Naturally the symptoms of your description manifests. It might take some time to you to come back to your original self

Hi, I am a smoker. I am smoking for past 7 years regularly. Per day 7 - 10 I am not able to stop the habit. Please advise me. Sometimes having a just pain also.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You may feel like you can't but that is not true in reality. You must persevere until you succeed. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a 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 on. 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 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 heartbeat 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 chew 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.
