I am suffering from the habit of can notinues smoking pls consult me any prevention for this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. 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. 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.

You have a trust problem. You do not have enough confidence with others’ driving and because of that you may be a controlling kind of person, where permissible. There is nothing to be so unhappy about this really. You can live with this problem quite comfortably if you ride the bike yourself all the time. If you want to resolve this then you have to learn to trust and know that others will drive safely too. You must realize that their lives are at stake too and surely they will not jeopardize their own lives as well, would they? To do so you will need to have someone ride you along and after repeated attempts you will build confidence in their abilities. Of course it helps to find a good driver all the time and then reposing confidence in a good driver is a lot easier for sure. Additionally you could work with a counselor on trust issues and resolve that to be able to deal with the driving part too rather effectively. That is some of the reason that there are so many people who do a lot of what is called, 'Back-seat driving'.: they cannot trust others but themselves only.

what should i do i forgot the things very often.. and also i am suffering from pain in my legs what should i do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
what should i do i forgot the things very often.. and also i am suffering from pain in my legs what should i do?
For the pain in your legs do visit a doctor to determine its cause and follow up. If you have not been exercising, it will help to get started. Besides, the growth hormone may have begun its agenda and that could have an impact on your body and cause some discomfort too. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Dear lybrate-user. The psychological problem you are facing is called obsession. You need to improve your self confidence and self esteem. You should also learn to reduce your obsessive thoughts. Cognitive behavior therapy will do good. Take care.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

Sir/Mam I am in depression and now I can not understand what should I do please help me.

Sir/Mam I am in depression and now I can not understand what should I do please help me.
At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because 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 scorching 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. 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 every day and learn to be contented 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.

It's sad to know that you have someone that is near to you. But one has to become strong to fulfil other responsibilities. To relieve your depression, you must take some strong and positive steps. Like taking a walk in morning or evening for at least 30 minutes. Drink water and natural juices and buttermilk ice tea for 4-5 times a day. Eat fruits and vegetables more. You can take homoeopathic medicines like natrum mur 1m wkly once. Keep in touch.

General Physician,
Drinking alcohol may be unsafe for some people, because it can interact with some medications.

The cleveland clinic mentions these examples:

Aspirin and alcohol may increase the risk of stomach bleeding.
Antihistamines may make you very drowsy when combined with alcohol.
Large amounts of the painkiller acetaminophen can cause liver damage when combined with alcohol.
Some laxatives and cough syrups already contain alcohol.
Some antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, painkillers and sleeping pills may cause serious interactions when combined with alcohol.

Hi, taking pain-killer like tramadol is not the solution for the pain. So, it's very important to know the cause of body pains in your case. As simple nutritional deficiency can cause general weakness and body-pains. Get the thorough check-up done annually. Would advise you to take homoeopathic medicines - alfaalfa tonic and five phos. - both thrice daily, and let me know about your condition after a month. Management: daily intake more of healthy, nutritious and balanced food which includes green vegetables, seasonal fruits, salads, legumes, pulses, eggs, milk & milk products, oats, cornflakes, muesli, nuts, lean meat (chicken & few seafood), etc. Keep yourself well-hydrated by taking at least 10-12 glasses of water in a day, also increase intake of other fluids like coconut water, shikanji, jaljeera, gulkand, rooh-afza, lassi, curd, etc. Which has got cooling effect on the body during this hot summer weather. Sleep for 6-9 hrs at night and 1-2 hrs. During daytime. Avoid going out or playing under the sun, best time is after sunset. Wear a hat with broad brim, wear sunglasses whenever you are out in the sun. Don't awake late nights, follow motto of'early to bed, early to rise' avoid unnecessary exertion or stress.

Hi. I am male 22. I get scared when I see people now a days. I am suffering from depression. For that I am consulting a psychiatrist now. But I am still not able to come out of this. Specially if it is the opposite sex. I freak out. Please suggest me how do I come out of it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

The fear of people has to do with your lack of social development. We are all social animals, gregarious by nature and need each other. But if there has been poor exposure and skills around people, we become very intimidated. Surprising we are into relationships all through our lives, yet we fear people. In your head you are probably comparing yourself and worrying whether you match up or not. You may feel inferior and inadequate around them. When it comes to a girl it can get very complicated because of the sexual connotation. The depression has a lot to do with this fear. I suggest you do a personality development course and a personal grooming course too. Meet with a counselor for your depression but also deal with your emotions, extensively. The distortion about people and especially girls will also be dealt with as you develop yourself. Go to a gym and do some body building and feel your image develop into a tough and strong young man. I hope you are studying well too? education can boost your self confidence. Do a lot of deep breathing exercises to calm yourself down. The bottom-line is we all want to be loved and to love. Learn this very important need of all humans: love people. Where there is perfect love there is no fear.

Psychiatrist is a medical doctor who evaluates and treats the problems of mind. Basic mbbs is required after which they complete either 2 years diploma in psychiatry (dpm) or 3 years masters md in psychological medicine. They treat by psychotherapy (layman word = counselling) and medications. Psychologist is one who acquires either ba/ ma or bsc/msc in psychology, this is done in normal colleges without much patient exposure. If they pursue further and do m. Phil/ phd in clinical psychologist, they are trained in handling patients, ie evaluation, assessment and therapy. They are recognised by the rci (rehabilitation council of india) and are given registration number similar to doctors have mci registration number. But there are many who do m. Phil/ phd, not in clinical psychology, but other branches of psychology and practise assessment and therapy, which is not valid and amounts to quackery. Counsellors are those who require minimum 10 th standard qualification and do diploma in counselling, there are alsoe universities which give msc, counselling psychology degrees, but these are not recognised as valid degrees for assessment. They do small time counselling in courts, schools, industries, and other establishments to address day to day problems. It s always wise to get an opinion of psychiatrist, as depression you are suffering from can be due to hypothyroidism, anemia and many common medical reasons, and the severity needs to be ascertained. If the psychiatrist feels you need cbt or some other for of psychotherapy, which he cannot allot time for, he aay refer you to a clinical psychologist.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. Memory and mind 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.

There are few medications that help to quit smoking but of all those the better one is your will. You have to stick to the rule that you will never smoke. Then only you can stop smoke.
