I think I am in depression and somehow have turned to alchohol and cigarettes to counter it. I was a person who would refrain from indulging in things like alchohol. But I feel like a victim who has fallen in the vicious trap. What do I do? I socialise with a lot of people but I hardly have people in my life whom I can call friends. Perhaps that' s because of being cheated by many in the past. I am a very short tempered person and this bad quality of mine has brought a lot of attrocities in my life and has seeded up a lot of unwanted enemies in my life. I have had many druken brawls in the past and that has somehow psychologically affected me. People have started judging me for my alchoholic habbits and loud nature. I have suddenly started to become a quieter gut and that is somehow killing me from inside. There is this senior guy from my college. We sometimes work together. I find peace in his company and somehow I feel he cares for me like he would do for his youmger brother. But I am not sure if that is for real or just another illusion. The work pressure in my college has beening adding to all my problems because I am pursuing my degree in textile design and have lately realised that what I would love to do is graphics. Although this course was not a total waste as they had initially incorporate few elements of graphic designing in the earlier semesters but the last two semesters are more inclined toward textiles than graphics and hence I am finding no. Interest towards this. But again, I am just left to two more semesters to have a degree in hand so I am somehow thinking of completing my college and not dropping out as that would literally give a heart attack to my parents. I really understand the value of life. I want to get out of all my problems but somehow don' t know how. Hence I thought it was better to consult an expert rather than thinking about it all day and yet reaching nowhere.

Dear, I sincerely think you should change your attitude first. Judging yourself using the eyes of others is not advisable. Secondly if you want to change any habbit, you should do it. Cribbing about a habit when you are unable to do makes you stressed and anxious and disappointed. Exercise, keeping yourself entertained, being in the company of wife and children and relatives, temples etc help you keep aways from' those' compelling situations. Tale care.

You could see a psychiatrist for this, there are medicines that may be able to help you. Also you can see a counselor who will be able to help you with your thoughts and feelings as I am sure the reason you arent able to quit would be impulse control.

You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a love. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints. Try to get away from loneliness and meet other friends or relatives.

India is the capital for diabetes mellitus (sugar) in the world. So no need to be shocked or worried about it. It is only a metabilic disorder. If you understand it in a scientific way and modify your lifestyle accordingly, it is no more a problem. The disease can not be cured. But can be kept under control and escape from its ill effects by obeying the following 3 mantras; 1. Proer diet 2. Brisk walking everyday for 50 minutes at a stretch 3. Taking tablets prescribed by a qualified doctor and fllow-up periodically. When compared to the ill effects of uncontrolled blood sugar for a prolonged period, the side-effects of antidiabetic drugs are very very negligible. Moreover, the recent antidiabetic medicines are safer than the older ones. Get an appointment of a diabetologist immediately.

Please remember that sex should be only for procreation, not for recreation. One drop of semen is equal to about 40 drops of blood, One should avoid recreative sex by: 1) Eating less in night, 2) Avoid non-vegetarian foods 3) Avoid intoxicants like tobacco, alcohol 4) Avoid onions and garlic which are aphrodisiacs and bind to lust and masturbation, 5) Take fruits, vegetables and drink hot cup of cow's milk every night 6) Avoid foods which are too pungent, spicy,oily, bitter because such foods cause misery and disease 7) Read nice books based on simple living high thinking and make your life successful You should be very careful and determined to stop this nasty habit as soon as possible as it can cause many problems physically, mentally,socially etc The truth is sometimes harsh but if taken positively it can ultimately lead to happiness and success, The truth is in the oldest and fully dependable Vedic texts like Bhagavatam and Gita, that by recreational sex, one takes the risk of becoming an animal in next life, Hope this helps, Sincerely

You are too young to feel depressed. I suggest that you go meet a counselor immediately and if that person advises, you may have to meet with a doctor too. Even if you are put on medication do not discontinue the counseling for a long time. The doctor will help with he headache and the sleep problem. Since the problem manifests so early there may be some childhood influences that are causing this depression. In that case I suggest you take your parents too, to the counselor. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because at your age 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back. If you love yourself adequately, you will never do harm to yourself. Be positive always and learn to do everything possible to invest into yourself. Life is extremely precious and because the depression, which is a mood disorder, makes you feel like giving up you must still persevere. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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. Because you are young the prognosis is good subject to your cooperation.

Hopefully this one use may not do any harm. But it looks like you have learned a lesson and will no longer use this substance. There are many controversial claims about marijuana, and we need to wait until the dust settles to finally know the entire truth. The medicinal uses have been proven to a large extent and the use of this substance must be limited to that prescription only. Until then please do not use it at all. The sensation of numbness and perception of reduction in touch sensation may be connected but if you do not indulge in marijuana, it should disappear without much ado. I hope you are one who exercises regularly anyway because that is always good for your health and circulation. So don't worry too much and only if this sensory deprivation persists you will need to meet a doctor.

Addiction of cigratte. How I can do something for my uncle. How he can get rid of addiction of cigratte?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your uncle's will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If your uncle is ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support he need, he can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless he feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that he has a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for his actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. He should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who will follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, your uncle need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with his psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

I'm 22years old. Recently started smoking. Approximately smoked around 35cigarettes. After smoking I can't walk for 50sec and even shivering. My hands and legs shaking after smoking. I feel like exhausted. I'm completely out of mind after smoking. What is the reason.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Obviously the effects of tobacco are not at all agreeable to you. Nicotine makes the heart beat faster and raises up your bp immediately. The carbon monoxide reduces the oxygen carrying capacity and makes you feel exhausted and affects your stamina. The nerves are also affected by smoking and therefore shivering and discomfort may also be experienced. The out of mind experience is also quite typical in the initial stages of smoking and many people go for that kick from the butt. But kick the butt you must before you get too enslaved to it. For some people the effects are less than for others. For you it clearly indicates that smoking is contraindicative and not at all suitable for your constitution. Very simply, stop right now and live well. Smoking is injurious to health for any and every body.

Diet and workouts go a long way in helping you gain strength to gain weight, you must eat more calories than you burn. When you gain weight, some will be fat and some will be muscle. To gain muscle, you must eat protein. To boost the ratio of muscle to fat gain, you must exercise. To gain muscle and strength, you must engage in resistance exercise. To improve bodyfat percentage and gain weight, you must cycle through phases of gaining muscle and losing fat. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Dealing With Stress In The Corporate World

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Dealing With Stress In The Corporate World

Business world has evolved in the past few decades in such a manner where small businesses grow to become corporate. The world is increasingly being dominated by corporations and a significant number of people also work in these places.

Stress and The Corporate World:

One of the things that come along with the corporate environment is stress as it brings with it an entirely new lifestyle. Irregular food habits, odd shift durations, insufficient sleeping hours and extremely tough work situations are all part and parcel of this corporate world. Although highly rewarding in the path of materialistic pursuits, it squeezes out your life-force and pushes you to stress and other diseases such as:

  1. Depression

  2. Diabetes

  3. Blood Pressure

  4. Asthma

  5. Migraines and

  6. Acidity and other gastrointestinal problems just to mention a few.

Methods to Deal with Stress in the Corporate World:

In the corporate world, the level of stress proliferates quickly and very few workplaces actually harbor a healthy atmosphere to look after their employees. Thus you have to take steps to reduce stress by yourself. Here are some of the ways by which you can save yourself from the parasite of stress.

  1. You may often feel everything around you going haywire in your workplace. The next time you have this notion, try gathering your focus on everything that is going right instead. Let optimism fill your day and keep your cool knowing that losing it will only cause you harm.

  2. At work, when hours fall short for achieving your target, keep a To-Do list to manage your priorities in an efficient and organized way.

  3. For most people work seems to engulf their entire life. Do not allow this to happen at any cost. Maintain a healthy balance between your office and your personal commitments. Make time for the people you love.

  4. Take short breaks in between your work to rejuvenate your energy level.

  5. Try out methods of relaxation, for instance a long walk, a hot bath, yoga or meditation.

  6. Assess your work at the end of the day as well as set a schedule plan for the tasks to be completed on the following day.

  7. Engage in hobbies like drawing, painting, dancing and gardening or music to disconnect from the pressures of the corporate world.

  8. Pay a visit to a psychologist or a stress management workshop to de-stress yourself.
