I take tobacco regularly. I want to leave this bad habit. What should I do. Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Just the fact that you want to give up smoking though is a good starting point. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. 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. 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 chewing gum or 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Hello, depression is a symptom cluster which are complexly interactive. Hence it requires a well tolerated treatment that provides both acute symptom relief and continued benefits without side effects. Allopathic medicines for depression have many known side effects like nausea fatigue and drowsiness insomnia increased appetite and weight gain dry mouth blurred vision, etc your laziness and lack of energy are mostly due to your medication. Your problem of difficulty in breathing is because breathing is a huge component of depression. Shallow breathing pattern is commonly observed in people affected by depression. You should walk barefoot on ground daily for 10-15 mins, this is called earthing- by this you absorb free energy from earth, you gain benefits of reflexology. You can consult me for a safer alternative to treat depression. Regards,

Sir My mom is suffering from schizophrenia past 20 years she talk to herself and not talking sleep at night and very moody and frustrated.

D.P.M, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Supriya, I can understand your worries regarding your mother's illness. Schizophrenia is a chronic illness however with medication it is possible to keep the symptoms under control and lead a normal life. It is essential you bring your mother for a consultation so that appropriate medication can be started for her, or her medication adjusted if she isn't responding to the current one.

I want to write a book.
I want to lose weight.
I want to make more money.
I want to change the world.
I want to….

Most of us have a list of “I want to’s” but far fewer of us go any further than that.

Why?

It’s not because we can't, although sometimes we like to tell ourselves that.

It’s really because we don't want to bad enough.

“If it’s important you’ll find a way. If it’s not, you’ll find an excuse.”

It’s time to take inventory and decide.

Who do you want to become? What do you want to achieve?

There’s no better day than today to start turning those “I want to’s” into “to do’s.”

It might not be easy and it probably won't happen overnight but your life, your mission, whatever it is you were called to do is too important for you to settle. Don't keep putting it off. Don't keep wishing and dreaming. Start doing.

And, when you want to give up… read this again and keep going.

Every success comes at a price (time, effort, attention). You just need to be willing to pay it.

Sir I m B. Tech student. How to increase my memory? I am 25 years old. Please solve my problem or give me solution.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Healthy and balanced diet is important in reducing risk of memory loss. Green leafy vegetables reduce the risk of decline of memory with age. Good social relationships and interactions can help reduce risk of memory loss. Brain activity should be maintained. This can be regular reading, writing, learning a new skill, or instrument, doing crossword or puzzles etc. stimulates brain cells and lower risk of memory loss. For further queries get back to me.

I am 22 years old person studying in college. From my childhood I was not good in interacting with people. When someone come to me and asked something I couldn't reply in a good manner. So I didn't have that much friends. Anyway I understood I was not good in socially at later 16s. I started changing my self but there where any good results (some slight changes are there). I am always dreaming about past incidents as making my self good and find pleasure in it. I visualise the same in my mind repeatedly sometimes. I was good at delivering speech during my schooling and got many prizes. But at the same time very low behavioural skills. Now in my hostel everyone teasing me but I can't oppose them. If someone asked something in a tweezing way I get silent and failing to handle the situation and sometimes I hide from that persons. In my dreams I am OK but in real situations I am far behind. Please resolve my problems and suggest me some some ideas to overcome.

Dear Lybrate User. You have expressed the issues you are facing in a clear and lucid manner, kudos for that .You have mentioned you are good in public speaking and have won prizes for that, it shows you are bold and articulate. Rather than dwelling on the past live in the present moment and day to day. Make friends with those with whom you can share interests and hobbies. Ask your close friends and relatives what you can do to improve your inter- personal skills. If you feel you might require a language course / accent or soft skills training, go ahead and do a course for that. Take some time out and set up goals for yourself - long term and short term. Live your life according to that .Re look at your self and your situation objectively and make a plan accordingly. Enjoy life and all the opportunities that come your way and look at obstacles as areas where you can learn something new. Do write to me if you do want any further assistance. Wishing you all the best. With Regards,

This fear of death can be quite crippling if you tend to believe in it. Obviously you do. In other words you have a trust problem: trusting in life and in the developments in medicine and other huge benefits of modern science. Now this kind of fear has some basis from some traumatic experience from childhood. If you have already identified that it would help tremendously. The tendency to use right brain, which has a penchant for exaggerating things quite out of proportion, is your handicap. You must meet with a counselor and seriously study all the possible ways that you fear death and the hypochondriacally suggestive factors that you must be obsessing about. When you check these out with another person you trust, you can see your discrepancy in perception and belief in comparison, and perhaps that will help you to change the outlook. You need to have explicit faith in the therapist for this to be effective. Also you will need to examine if the fear about death is related to any particular aspect of your health and explore the measures you can take to stave off that possibility. This is a very important boosting action to take, and you will feel physically able and fit. I am referring to regular physical exercises especially of the aerobic kind; eating healthily, and stress management. But I think that the greatest benefit you can really experience is from the spiritual angle, if you have faith in god. If you have not explored this, you must. For this you must speak to a spiritual counselor or even a psycho spiritual one. Death is an eventuality and accepting that with good faith will really go a long way to love life, to live life to the fullest, and to enjoy every moment of existence as though there is no tomorrow. Everybody else is living life knowing that death will come to them someday but that it can be hastened by neglecting your lifestyle or abusing healthy living. The spiritual pursuit is the best bet among a lot of other measures too which are not possible to mention in this forum.

Dear, memory power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, I went through your query in detail and from what you have mentioned, it is clear that despite being on medicines, you are still having the symptoms of depression. The medicines that you have mentioned consists of two salts, an anti depressant Escitalopram and a sedative Clonazepam. Youu haven't mentioned how long you have been taking this tablet. If it has been more than two weeks, had I been your psychiatrist I would have considered increase in dose of the antidepressant. The best way forward will be to talk to your psychiatrist and discuss with him the option of increasing the dose. You can also consider adding psychotherapy sessions which will help you recover. Best wishes.
