Dear lybrate user. There is no health effects in quitting alcohol. You may feel some withdrawal symptoms like restlessness. But don't worry, ignore them. Drink a lot of water and fruit juices. Take care.

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

What is addiction and how to determine if someone is addicted to any thing like smoking, alcohol etc.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
Addiction is a condition that results when a person ingests a substance (e.g., alcohol, cocaine, nicotine) or engages in an activity (e.g., gambling, sex, shopping) that can be pleasurable but the continued use/act of which becomes compulsive and interferes with ordinary life responsibilities, such as work, relationships, or health. Users may not be aware that their behavior is out of control and causing problems for themselves and others. The word addiction is used in several different ways. One definition describes physical addiction. This is a biological state in which the body adapts to the presence of a drug so that drug no longer has the same effect, otherwise known as a tolerance. Another form of physical addiction is the phenomenon of overreaction by the brain to drugs (or to cues associated with the drugs). An alcoholic walking into a bar, for instance, will feel an extra pull to have a drink because of these cues.If he i s unable to leave the substance or withdrawal of which produces physical and mental disturbance we can decide he is addicted to it

How to Quiet my smoking habit. I have use all experiments but I get negative Answer so kindly suggests me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must try and try again until you succeed. Loss of control over the addiction is not surprising since that is a major part of the enslavement to substances. That also means that if you want you can give it up anywhere, anytime. But the better reason to give up smoking is to relate to the harmful effects of tobacco. Also the peer pressure is very great while in college and in the hostel, and it appears that you are not able to say ‘no’. To be ‘in’ with the crowd you may hesitate to refuse to join them and go along with the flow. But this is hurting you further, and down the line you will find it increasingly difficult to quit. Do it now even if your friends ostracize you: your life is at stake, not theirs. When quitting, you must take one day at a time. 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 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.

Since 2011 I have been suffering from a disease. I every time talk with me. Feeling much depression. Will it be cured...
It is curable. It has good medicine in psychiatry. But do not depend on medicine. It has some side effects. You come yourself from this problem. You are introvert. Keep all the feelings internally and suffering very much. It is not good for yourself. When you have feelings it is better to share with others. Do not sit alone and do not think too much about this problem. Do not feel and think about I suffered long time. Do not count years etc. Feel always normal. Today everyone has depressive thoughts. If they think seriously they will become psychiatry patients. So do not think too much. Control yourself to change your personality aspects if not possible to possible to yourself. It is better to take help of psychologist. Psychological counselling has no side effects. It improves your personality. It helps to grow your personality. It changes your style management. Better to share your internal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. Be friendly with every one. Feel always comfortable and be sociable all the time and be happy. Ok all the best.

Speech & Language Delay - Spot The Signs!

Speech & Language Delay - Spot The Signs!

There are instances when a kid doesn’t show the usual signs of development compared to their peers. Most parents take it casually thinking that their child will catch up in due course only to find a larger problem associated with it. It is therefore extremely important to discuss speech and language related delays with a medical practitioner to find out whether a child is immature or has a genuine problem which requires medical help. A child can show different signs as per age:

Different age group:

  • Within the first 12 months, a baby should be able to relate to his environment and make babbling and cooing sound. It is often observed that by month 9, a baby is capable of stringing sounds after seeing things. If a baby is intently watching objects, but is unable to make any sound, this may be an early symptom of speech or language related problem.
  • Between the 12th and the 15th month, a baby should be capable of making a wide array of sounds including few commonly used words. Babies should also be able to take few basic instructions and oblige those.
  • Between the age of 18th and 24th months, a baby becomes smart enough to pronounce anywhere in the range of 20 to 50 words. They also start combining words and make simple sentences. They should be capable of identifying common objects and remember their names.
  • By the age of 3, a toddler should be smart enough to combine 4-5 words and form sentences. Kids of this age also become smart enough to take straightforward instructions and perform them comfortably. Any deviation on this should be immediately reported to the Doctor.

What are the warning signs?

If a child between the age of 1-2 is not able to do the following things:

  1. Fails to use gesture
  2. Use more gesture than vocalising by the age of 18 months
  3. Produce no voice by 18th-month
  4. Fails to perform simple instructions

A child between the age of 2-3 needs evaluation if:

  1. Capable of imitating words but isn’t spontaneous in vocalising
  2. Repeats certain words multiple times
  3. The tone of voice is unusual compared to his peers

Possible causes of speech and language delay:

  1. Problems with palate leading to oral impairments
  2. Short frenulum restricting sufficient tongue movement to produce speech
  3. Oral-motor problems leading to speech limitation
  4. Problems related to hearing
  5. Chronic infection of the ear leading to speech delay

What does the pathologist assess?

  1. What can the child speak?
  2. What can the child understand?
  3. Oral-motor status
  4. Clarity of speech

Post the above evaluation a pathologist directs a plan of action. Sometimes speech therapy sessions are recommended in order to improve kids’ skill. For a motor related problem, a doctor can state a plan of action and limit the expectation of parents. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Speech Therapist.

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) - Tips To Help You Diagnose The Problem!

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a type of personality disorder characterized by an ongoing pattern of varying moods, self-image and behaviour. This often results in impulsive actions and problems in relationships and at work. You may experience intense episodes of various emotions like anger, depression and anxiety that may last for a few hours to a few days.

Diagnosis of BPD
If you experience the following 10 symptoms for a long time or if they have had a huge impact on your daily life, you may say that you are suffering from BPD:

  1. Feeling of being abandoned. You feel that people may abandon you and are constantly worried about that. You would do anything to stop it.
  2. Frequent mood swings. You experience intense emotions that last from a few hours to a few days. E.g. You suddenly start feeling low and depressed after feeling very happy and confident for a while.
  3. Lack of identity. You don’t know who you are and do not have a strong sense of your being.
  4. Unable to sustain relationships. You find it very hard to retain relationships and make new ones.
  5. You feel empty from within all the time.
  6. Make impulsive decisions and show sudden reactions. You do things to harm yourself like binge eating, drug abuse or driving dangerously.
  7. You inflict pain on yourself or have suicidal feelings.
  8. You have anger issues which are very difficult to control.
  9. You get paranoid or dissociate when you’re stressed.
  10. You experience all your emotions very intensely be it anger, happiness or sadness.

Self-Care - How can you help yourself?
If you start feeling overwhelmed, focus on one feeling at a time. It will help channelize your energy and thoughts into finding a solution for that emotion. Different therapies help different people at different times. You are the best judge to decide what benefits you the most.

Follow these tips to get through the various emotions that you may experience.

  1. When you are angry and frustrated
    1. Rip a newspaper
    2. Hit a pillow
    3. Listen to your favourite music
    4. Go for a walk or do some vigorous exercise
  2. When you are depressed and lonely
    1. Wrap yourself in a blanket and watch your favourite movie or TV show.
    2. Write all the negative feelings on a piece of paper and tear the paper.
    3. Use positive affirmations to comfort yourself.
    4. Cuddle a pillow/pet/soft toy
  3. When you are tensed and anxious 
    1. Try to shift your focus to something else like music, yoga or meditation.
    2. Take a deep breath, use relaxation techniques and focus on your breaths.
    3. Take a warm bath to help soothe your mood.
  4. When you want to harm yourself
    1. Rub ice over the parts where you want to hurt yourself.
    2. Take a cold-water bath to cool yourself.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 40 year old, female. I am suffering from depression, stress feeling, anxiety, weeping kind of problem since last...
It appears that probably you had post delivery depression after the birth of your 2nd child, which was not treated. You also might be having lots of sadness and grief which did not get any outlet, and hence, become more intese now. This is the reason you feel like crying all the time. I guess you have ptsd - post traumatic stress disorder. You might have experienced or heard about some traumatic events like, accidents, earthquakes, tsunami etc which were very devastating. As a child it affecred your mind and has left a strong impact on you. Probably you are very scared of losing someone close to you. You might be afraid of death. All this together is causing your anxiety and sadness. Please continue with the medication as the doctor's advice. Also take an appointment with a counsellor. Relieving your painful emotions which are suppressed till not will help you a lot.
