I am 48 years old male. I am addicted badly to alcohol. Previously I was under treatment and also took pysactric advice for more than one year was ok and did not consume. Past 3 months is horrible. My wife and child has walked away , friends shun me. I have become a loner. Only one thing I have is my job. Please help.

This is really serious: your family abandoning you and you are back into alcohol. Time to stop, isn't it? You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination, these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will, however, take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement. Cessation of alcohol consumption can get your family back and you can put your life together all over again. This can be done if you follow the suggestions just given to you. This may be your last chance, don't let it slip by.

My brother is an alcoholic. I want to know how to go about finding the best course of action for finding a solution to this problem. Thank you.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am very concerned that your brother has not reached what we call, ‘Hitting Rock Bottom’ as yet. To me, his Rock Bottom seems to be death if he is a heavy drinker and is completely sloshed everyday i.e. Only death can stop his addiction! Anyway do not despair as yet and you may attempt the following and see how it works: you may have tried a de-addiction center but he should not have been released if he was not ready. So in this attempt, he may be taken to another de-addiction center that is stricter and will also have follow up treatment and AA meetings for him to compulsorily attend. Ideally, your brother should want to give up alcohol himself to begin with. If not, it is going to be an uphill task and to the most part impossible. However, you should not be in want of trying. If he is unwilling to seek help, he needs to be admitted to a rehabilitation center for at least 6 months by force. If not, there are centers who will come and pick him up when he is drunk, when his resistance will be ineffective. This will require his wife's permission and written consent. After your brother returns from therapy, there will be a lot of follow-ups, both in the house and in his daily activities that must be meticulously adhered to. There is a medicine called Disulfiram, which only the doctor can prescribe, and it is very powerful that even if he attempts to drink a small quantity, he can have serious reactions that may sometimes entail hospitalization. You have to monitor his intake of the medicine and keep a close watch on him. He also has to go for regular counseling for at least three years! Apart from his health, he will also affect the family and all his children will carry genetic factors for alcoholism. If he is into business or working, he will soon not be able to continue and he will go into financial ruin. He will lose all his friends and become ostracized by his society. He will lose his dignity, self-esteem, self-confidence, and become a misfit. He will also lose his sexual capacity, liver function, heart function, kidney etc. These are all elements of the Rock Bottom concept. T will be difficult since he has become addicted to alcohol for some time and has a lot to do. The consumption of Antabuse has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children, and whoever else is there, will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that people are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that you will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Now you should not give up on him but neither should you harass him. Be continuously after him and in the end, you will succeed. His medical condition warrants a very strict course of action. He needs to identify why you needs to drink, and go back into his childhood to find out other influences on his personality that makes him prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet his oral needs with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that he will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks.

Know About The New Age Relationship Killer, "Phubbing" and Ways to Combat

Post Graduate Diploma In Rehabilitation Psychology, M A Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Bhopal
Know About The New Age Relationship Killer, "Phubbing" and Ways to Combat
How "phubbing" is killing your relationship?

It may sometimes so happen that your partner may prefer texting someone else over talking to you. Also sometimes this seemingly harmless habit can turn into an obsession, when your partner just can’t help but steal glances at his phone while you two are trying to enjoy a romantic dinner. If this turns into a constant habit that just doesn’t wear off, then chances are you’re being phubbed by your partner, and what is happening to you has a specific name. It’s called p-phubbing, which is the act of snubbing your partner by being glued to the phone.
What phubbing is doing to your relationships?

Research shows that Mumbai is the most major hub of phubbing in India. However, the spread of phubbing is not just restricted to Mumbai and has made its presence felt in other metropolitans of the country. Phubbing has led to serious relationship troubles among most couples. James A. Roberts, a professor at Baylor University, co-authored a recent study on phubbing which was published in the journal Computers in Human Behaviour. The study revealed some shocking statistics.

1. More than 46% people complained of being phubbed by their partners
2. More than 22% confessed that phubbing is a major issue in their relationship
3. And about 37% said that being phubbed makes them feel depressed at some point of time.

The study also said that there’s a direct link between phubbing and relationship issues. Phubbing is particularly problematic for those with an anxious attachment style (which makes up 20% of the population of the world), although its effects are also felt on the rest of us. More and more people feel dissatisfied with their partners who ignore them or cut them short mid-sentence to check their phones. Many even feel that their partner is no longer interested in them. For quite a few people it’s the reason behind feelings of insecurity, neglect and depression, and dissatisfaction with life in general. In fact, the study showed that some people had gone as far as ending their relationship as the situation had worsened to a level where it could not be handled.

How can you combat it?

Phubbing now poses as a social evil that must be weeded out of society. If you and your partner suffer at the hands of phubbing, then there are certain things you can do to combat it.

1. The easiest way to put an end to it is to tell your partner how it makes you feel.
2. Make certain rules regarding cellphone use when out on a date, or just spending quality time with each other at home.
3. Alternatively, you can try your partner to quit the habit by leading by example. Don’t use your cellphone at all when with your partner, and show him that spending quality time with him is more important.
4. You can also try educating your partner on the ill-effects of phubbing and how it can adversely impact your relationship. This is best done when you catch him in the act.

Sometimes your partner may not be consciously phubbing you or showing signs of an obsessive phubber, but it is still important to correct his wrong habits. Most importantly cellphones were invented to bring humanity closer, and not distance people even while they are sitting in the same room. So keep that in mind, and put an end to this unhealthy habit.

Stuttering - Health Tip

Bachelor of Audiology & Speech Language Pathology (B.A.S.L.P)
Speech Therapist, Chennai
Stuttering is a speech disorder in which sounds, syllables, or words are repeated or last longer than normal. These problems cause a break in the flow of speech (called disfluency).
Symptoms of stuttering may include:
Feeling frustrated when trying to communicate
Putting in (interjecting) extra sounds or words (" we went to the. Uh. Store")
Repeating sounds, words, parts of words, or phrases (" I want. I want my doll" i. I see you" or" ca-ca-ca-can")
Tension in the voice
Very long sounds within words (" I am booooobbbby jones" or" llllllllike")
Signs and tests:
No testing is usually necessary. The diagnosis of stuttering may require consultation with a speech pathologist.
Treatment:
There is no one best treatment for stuttering. Most early cases are short-term and resolve on their own. Speech therapy may be helpful if:
Stuttering has lasted more than 3 - 6 months, or the" blocked" speech lasts several seconds. The child appears to be struggling when stuttering, or is embarrassed. There is a family history of stuttering. Speech therapy can help make the speech more fluent or smooth, and can help the child feel better about the stuttering.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

There is no medicine that can help you in this matter. Let me tell you of a more disturbing concern: the more troubled you are, the more you are likely to disturb the well being of the unborn child. You need to feel calm and enjoy your pregnancy to the maximum to give that child a good foundation in life and feel welcome to this world. Now, regarding this person whom you still love. You need to meet a counselor or talk regularly to a friend who is highly reliable and trustworthy. This will slowly purge this boy out of your mind bit-by-bit every day. You say that your husband and in-laws are good people and that is a blessing for you. So, you must never step wrong with them in any way and indulge in this relationship even in the mind. It looks like you are pining for him after the marriage and especially because you loved him. But you are in a good family and with time you will be able to forget this fellow and love your husband well. There must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the marriage. Since this marriage is final, then remove all associations of his: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get him out of your system, not just the mind. Keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to your old pals and revive those contacts. They will help you get over him. Devote a lot of time and affection towards the pregnancy and focus on good health both mentally and physically. You need to be gainfully occupied to keep your mind engaged with interesting activities.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) focuses on how people think and act in order to overcome their emotional and behavioral problems. It is a form of short psychotherapy. It acts by helping patients identify and evaluate Automatic Negative Thoughts (ANTs). By doing so, patients become able to think more realistically. As a result they feel better emotionally and able to behave more functionally. When patients change their underlying beliefs about themselves, their world and other people, therapy results in long lasting changes.

4 Ways to Confront Fear

4 Ways to Confront Fear

Fear is a very crippling feeling , which you might have to go through at various situations of life. You might be scared of heights, darkness, and public speaking, even scared of being lonely. Fear is very difficult to overcome as it can debilitate you and render you useless. Even if you cannot be superhuman, you can at least aim to be someone who can confront his/her fear and render the fear useless. Here are a few tips on how you can confront your fear:

  1.  Breathe: Breathing slowly and deeply actually helps. It calms your nerves and relaxes you. Short and shallow breaths can trigger panic and fear. If you breathe out longer than the time you take to breathe in, your body relaxes immediately. Try it; it actually works the best. Whenever you feel that you are panicking or that you are feeling afraid, take deep breaths. Concentrate on your breathing. Count till 7 when you breathe in and till 11 when you breathe out. You will be surprised to find out how quickly you have calmed down.
  2. Identify the fear: This is a very important step as you need to figure out why you are scared or afraid. There has to be a specific reason behind every single fear that you have. Try to identify that reason. Delve deep into your memory and try figuring out what exactly evoked the fear. Once you know the reason, you will be able to understand the base of your fear, and you will find it easier to overcome.
  3. Get ready to be peaceful: If you start feeling anxious, nervous or afraid, breathe in and out. Then think of how you will get positive outcomes from the particular act you are being anxious about. If you have to go into a dark room to get something and you are afraid of darkness, just think how you will be able to get what you desire if only you step into the darkness for a fraction of second. This will help build your confidence and will slowly get you accustomed to moving on with your fear.
  4. Control what you imagine: If you are afraid of something, whether tangible or not, your imaginations about it will run wild. You might start imagining stuff which are not even real or which might just ingrain your mind and establish the fear on solid ground. Hence it is high time you need to control your imagination. Imagination is a very unique gift if you want to create something beautiful, which will help encourage you. But if you start imagining how a spider will just grow in size and number, and will fly towards you, then you have to put a lid on it.

Being afraid is common. Even the bravest people are afraid. Don't be embarrassed about that. Just face it and try to let go of it.

Retirement is big change in anyone's life. One has to plan for the retirement, in the sense that, along with financial planning, one needs to think in advance how to spend time constructively after retirement. Your father might be worried about something and is appears a that he is not happy. He may not be hating you, but he is taking out his anger and frustration on you. Probably his expectations are not met and that might be putting him under stress. Please talk to your father, about what are his worries, what does he plan to do after retirement. Retirement might be giving him a sense of losing control, assure him of your support. Assure him that, now slowly, he can pass on his responsibilities to you and/or your siblings if any. Encourage him to plan his daily routine after retirement. Encourage him to take up a hobby if possible, encourage him to meet his friends, do some social service. Check with him, if he wants to do some other job from home/online, help him in exploring different possibilities. See if he is worried about his health, encourage him to go for walk/yoga. But don't treat him like a child. He needs to take care of himself. If he is neglecting his health then that is because of low self esteem and general sad feelings. Please try to talk to him about his worries and anxieties and tell him you love him and care for his wellbeing. It appears that he has been cheated earlier in life by other people and hence has developed suspicious nature. Please talk to him about this and assure him that you are his family and will not cheat him. Take care.

Homoeopathic medicine----------------------- BRENUP (ALLEN) Drink 2 spoon twice daily----------------------------------- Just make up a routine and a balance between your studies and entertainment. Study time means only studies and nothing else in your mind. Most of the successful people reached great heights just due to their fixed schedule and not by becoming a book worm. So be focused and start a new era in your life as the easiest way to taste success in life is only through studies----------------So whenever you study, study with full concentration and don’t let other activities like Friends, girls, masturbation, Facebook, Whatsapp, Mobile etc engulf your mind as it is a problem of most of you in your age and you people give it the name lack of Concentration---------Friends are always for the time being and if you want to continue relationship with some of your good friends life long then always think and act one step ahead of them as once in your life you taste failure, all your so called friends will be gone-------Always keep one thing in mind that this World is for rising stars and when you are rising, your all odds will be accepted but once you are a failure, your good deeds will be ignored-----------------So to become a rising star, you must study hard, just think that there is not any word like Lack of Concentration and positively you will have to work hard and succeed in life, no other motive right now, just keep focus on the target that you have decided for urelf----------------Best of luck--------

I am 40 year old male, just stopped smoking for 3 weeks now. I am still having the urge but typically made up my mind not to touch cigarettes any more. How long does it take it take for the urge to go get into zero factor.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Congratulations on stopping the smoking. Every day is important in containing this habit. If you are looking at a point zero for total absence of the urge, you are looking at an abstinence of three years without relapse. Here? s a piece of very good advice however: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world? you can start the cessation all over again? but the three years from the new date must be your starting point for the three-year layoff. The body has a lasting memory and even after three years you could start the habit and get into addictive levels easily. I am only saying that the urge will disappear after three years of smoke-free abstinence. I hope that is clear. The true resolution to the addiction lies in a concept called the script issue, which will resolve why you are killing yourself by slow poisoning and give you better reasons and drive to quit. Since you have bp, smoking is contraindicative and there must have been other factors driving you to be so harmful to yourself. Of course I do not know for how long you have been in this habit. 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.

You are going through grief, which is normal after loss of a loved one. 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.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Do not even think that she will come back to your life. Forget her. Take care.
