Hi am 24 years old. Am smoking since 2010. Now I am realized to quit smoking. I tried more than 10 times I was failed. Is there any medication to quit smoking. This time I will not give up. Please help me out. Thanks in advance.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You will need to visit a doctor for a prescription to quit smoking. Even if you have tried for a hundred times, do not give up. You must try and try again but at each attempt use some learning of the previous attempt and implement it. You will succeed in the end. Congratulations that you want to quit smoking. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. Smoking uses the respiratory system and gives you a faster kick. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 7000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke and chew tobacco: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga) or chewing, and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may 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 tobacco. 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. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, “giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times”. 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.

How control emotions?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
How control emotions?
Your emotions are not to be controlled. They are to be in fact expressed every time and as soon as possible. You will need to control your behavior around the feeling. The more your feelings are expressed the better balance you will be in. If you read a book entitled, Emotional Intelligence? by Daniel Goleman you will understand how expressing feelings actually improve your performance and well being, including your intelligence. There is no exception to expressing feelings. The only exception is when the feeling is so inappropriate. Many times because we want to look good and do not want to offend others, we cover up our emotions. When you do this, the emotion will find a favorite organ and express itself into that organ and lead to its malfunction or total dysfunction. Sometimes you may have to even remove the organ. So emotions can give life or even take it. The solution: always express your feelings in appropriate ways.

I am 26 years old. I dont know why I cannot adjust properly at some places. Many times it has happened that people say that I need to consult a psychiatrist. They say that I am disturbed. But there are many who have never told me these things. Consulting a psychologist costs much and I don't want to take unnecessary medicines.

You are a nice person and able to take correct course. All you need is guidance so that you can reach your goals in life that are higher than saying -i love you- to your friend! if possible, tell your parents that you need to see a psychologist. Sittings with a psychologist will definitely help you offload all your tensions, stress, worries. But, it will cost per sitting-if your parents can pay, good. Else, start doing pranayaam as taught by baba ramdev daily on astha channel 5.00 to 7.30 am. Very very effective- esp anulom-vilom and bramri and udgit are a must. You will get miraculous results for free and without adverse effects of allopathic medicines and will gain good physical and mental health, increase in your stamina, good concentration, improved memory, etc. Your mind will become focused and stop wandering. You will be able to move on.

Often I get anger for silly things how can I control my anger. What are the things I need to follow to control my anger can you pls help me out?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If it is of recent origin, which I suspect, then look back and see what has triggered off this reaction. It has to do with anger. When you have identified it you can work to out with a counselor. If not it may be of some past event in your childhood, in which case we may have a more serious problem. You and your parents would do well to visit a counselor and trace the feeling of anger from childhood. This may have a major bearing and could lead to complications if not dealt with soon. Anyway, you must do vigorous exercise everyday and that will expend the energy and leave you with the memory to deal with. You will also need to check whether you are acting angry when you are really scared. In that case you are escalating anger over the fear to cover it up. This will not deal with the fear and you will need to investigate that and deal with that instead. It is not advisable to ‘ruminate’ over this feeling as it will feed into an impulse and you may lose control over that and do something inappropriate. None of the feelings are to be controlled. The way you express them has to be appropriate. Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands; scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. Unexpressed feelings will hurt you back by clinging on to a favorite organ and troubling it enough to cause it to malfunction or lead to its total dysfunction. You can also hand over the feeling to God, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too. All feelings must be expressed without exception.

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone. You can contact me for further help, if required.

I have infection in my chest. I am a chain smoker. Should I stop smoking. Will it effects me. How can I stop smoking. Please give an answer.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Any infection in the chest related to the respiratory system is bad and to smoke over that is damaging a vulnerable apparatus and increasing its overall health. Even if the infection is not related to the smoking, inhalation of tobacco smoke with more than 4000 chemical substances in it, you can only do it more harm than good. Kindly quit immediately for your own good. Reactive people wait until there is a serious problem to quit: that time it will be too late. 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.

Around 1 year age children generally speak few simple words. Communication delays must be addressed at early ages for better results. Speech pathologist can guide you reg. Intensive speech language stimulation. Any neuro motor problems must be ruled out. Seek professional help if there is absolutely no speech development yet.
