I have a habitat of cigarette smoking. What should I do to stop cigarette smoking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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.

Daily drinking alcohol or even weekly once can lead to fatty liver and other medical complications. Get a liver function test done, and ultrasonogram of abdomen. Consult a psychiatrist and take anti-craving medicine for alcohol, they work really well. A0ll the best.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Anger and aggression are emotions. These emotions are triggered when you are frustrated, disappointed, stressed or anxious. Emotions, once triggered, should be vent off. You should learn not to get angry even when there are apt circumstances around. Holistic methods like meditation and breathing exercises should help you. Take care.

Muscle growth and weight gain should happen naturally with diet and healthy physical activity. You can consider mild to moderate work out in gym. But many gym s suggest health drinks and other formulations, which are not recommended and in fact can turn out to be harmful, so kindly avoid those. Also consider your parents and grandparents weight and height, some times genetic things are way beyond control.

Continue gingo biloba 1x tabs for 3 months. After that you take the medicine alternate days for a month. Then once in 3 days for a month. Then weekly once for 2 months. Then you can stop. Immediate stoppage can reverse the symptoms. Tapering the dose is the correct method. And also you must think positive always that my memory is good. Everything become alright even if I stop my medicines. Be cool be relaxed. Nothing to worry.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Smoking cigarettes can cause cancer and other respiratory problems. Smoking weed is never an alternative for smoking. At last you will end up smoking both. Therefore please do not start weed. The best method to quit smoking is to use your will power. There are many other methods including deaddiction therapy. But nothing works better than will power. I suggest online motivation counselling. Take care.

I found myself depressed after not studying enough in a day? is it normal.? Or I should take some medicine.
Dear, You are not depressed, but you are stressed. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Depression is cured. But now you are suffering with depressive thoughts. It is a psychological feeling of impotency. If you can recover yourself. Otherwise better to consult psychologist. Psychological counselling is helpful to change the thought process. You need behavioural modification therapy and life style management. Better to maintain friendly relation with your wife. Do not think too much about sex. Give priority for foreplay. Slowly you will achieve it. It is better to play main role of your wife. Encourage her she will cooperate to you. Do not use any medicine. Once you take it may be addicted to you. Without medicine you cannt do anything. Better to attend to psychological counselling sessions in delhi. Do not think too much about this problem. Do not maintain aloneness. It is a psychological feeling. You will come out of the problem. Be share your personal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. Be sociable all the time and be happy. Ok all the best.

Reasons Pre-marital Counselling is Crucial for Indian Couples

Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG), MS, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Ghaziabad
Reasons Pre-marital Counselling is Crucial for Indian Couples

6 Reasons Pre-marital Counselling is Crucial for Indian Couples

A study published in the Journal of Family Psychology reveals that couples who opt for pre-marital counselling experience higher levels of conjugal satisfaction than couples who don’t go for it. Moreover, these couples, the study says, experience a 30% drop in the possibility of divorce over a 5-year period.

Pre-marital counselling is a wise choice as it can help you and your partner to better understand the dynamics of your relationship and build the foundation of a happy future together.

A pre-marital counselling helps you with the following factors-

1. Hygiene

Apart from stressing on the importance of personal health and hygiene, you would also hear a gynaecologist emphasising on the significance of sexual hygiene for a problem-free married life. While preventing infections that may affect your reproductive system, maintaining sexual hygiene can also significantly elevate the overall hygiene levels of your entire body.

2. Sex

Pre-marital sex counselling is essential as it helps to fill in the gaps in your knowledge of sex. During your consultation with a gynaecologist, you can expect to receive information about the male and female anatomy as well as about the actual act. Even thoughts like “sex can be painful” get addressed during the counselling.

3. Contraceptives

Counselling sessions with a gynaecologist can also help you in getting your facts right about pregnancy. He or she could guide you on how to work out safe and unsafe days to have sex; talk to you about contraceptive methods; and best family planning practices.

4. Folic acid for pregnancy

During a counselling session, you can expect to be encouraged by a gynaecologist to have Vitamin B (folic acid) before and during your pregnancy to avert birth defects in the brain and spinal cord of your potential offspring.  

5. Vaccines

Opting for a counselling session before marriage can help you to learn about vaccines that will protect you against cervical cancer (cancer of the cervix caused mainly by HPV- a virus) and rubella (a disease caused by the rubella virus, which can cause miscarriage, birth defects and stillbirth).

6. Medical investigations

You should also expect investigations based on the following tests-

a. Complete blood count test: The aim of this test is to assess your overall health and identify a range of disorders such as anaemia, leukaemia, and infection to name a few.

b. Fasting/blood sugar test: The test is performed to diagnose diabetes.  A fasting blood glucose level of less than 100mg/dl is considered normal.

c. Thyroid stimulating hormone test: This test is taken to check for problems in the thyroid gland.

d. Rubella test: It is used to identify antibodies that are formed in the blood, as a result of immunisation or the rubella infection.

e. HPLC (high performance liquid chromatography): The test is performed to determine Thalassemia.

f. Urine microscopy: The test helps in determining the condition of your urinary tract and kidney. It identifies injury, presence of disease or inflammation of these areas.

I think he can be put on what are known as depot injections. Basically he will not need to take medicines daily; just one injection a month. It is very common for relatives of schizophrenia to have depression and feel stressed. You need to be evaluated for this and treated accordingly. Please understand that none of this is your fault. In fact you and your mother are brave and have shown extraordinary courage that people often lack! after all these years of caring for your brother, mother and dad, it is now time for you to care for yourselves! don't neglect it!

Anxiety and panic attacks are easily treatable with medications as the reason is reduced serotonin in mind (brain). Counselling will help for only very very mild cases. You have been doing injustice by not taking her to a psychiatrist for such a long time. Do not delay further and consult soon. All the best.

Nervousness has to do with fear. Are you aware of what you are afraid of? If this is of recent origin, then it is easy to pin point the cause. It not it may belong to the realms of your childhood and your parents may be able to help identify. After that you and your parents could meet with a counselor and work out that fear and take other measures too. Sometimes this kind of nervousness could be genetic too. In the meantime you must do certain things to build your constitution physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be.
