I have habit to drink the alcohol but now want to quiet the same how I quiet the drink.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, you must understand the difference between alcohol addiction and abuse. Quitting is not easy. There are every possibility of relapsing. The best method is to quit the habit now and sustain with will power. You can definitely quit alcohol in one go. Just stop it and swear not to drink again. Engage yourself in games and other engaging activities during evenings or whenever you feel the urge. Just a week, your habit should change. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I think one or two online counseling sessions and these therapies should help you. The best method is what I suggest. Please try it without fail. Take care.

What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. There are few things I would like you to try. 1. When you feel sad. Feel the feeling of sadness fully. You may close your eyes and let that sadness flow through your mind and body. If tears flow let them flow. Cry it out. Feeling what you feel fully and totally is healing. Once you feel your sadness fully. You might feel the lightness in your heart. Feel that too and say out loud. How wonderful! and engage your mind remembering some good qualities and good times you spent with the person you are missing. 2. Regular simple breath awareness meditation also help manage your loss. 3. You may also l write daily 3 to 5 things you are grateful to every morning. These things could be as simple as having a bed to sleep and food to eat. Affirm what you write and add new thing in your list for 7 to10 days. If you are not feeling any change over next 2 weeks or if you lack motivation to initiate and maintain above activities feel free revert and we could work together for few weeks to reverse your cycle and help you appreciate what you have. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

I feel really depressed about every small thing and have been prone to crying for every little thing that goes wrong. I do not feel right about anything and can not sleep either.

You need to consult any professional for proper diagnosis and reason of your problem.in the meantime you can try few things which will help you. Take proper sleep of 7-8 hours try to avoid sleep at day time. Its in our hand to be happy what it requires is slightly change in your approach ,stop thinking that something is wrong with me I am not well make yourself as much busy as you can so that you don't get time to think on all this. And its everyone's right is to be happy we cannot change the thinking of people or situation around us but we can get the things or reasons which make us happy, what we can do is to live every second of life, what do you want to be, what do you want to eat, to do, your career, your friends, your likings etc. Develop some hobby, make some good friends, make yourself busy, as much you will think you will get frustrate and will gain nothing, live only for yourself, and this can be possible when you will involve yourself in some other things ,the main concept is that make yourself as much busy as you can so that you don't get free time to think on this. First start from joining any hobby class and make any good friend with whom you can share everything ,do some yoga and meditation, expand your social circle. Take care.

I am 57 years old, male, having Depression/Anxiety and Schizophrenia since 1987. I have taken innumerous drugs and got relief. Right now I am on Sertraline 100 mg 1-0-0 and mirtazapine 15 mg 0-0-1 for depression/Anxiety. Symptoms are under control. For schizophrenia, I am currently on Amisulpride 200 mg 0-0-1 and qutipin 100 mg 0-0-1. There is relief. But there no positive symptoms viz hallucinations or delusions. But there are negative symptoms like dullness and no pleasure in doing day-to-day activities, staying aloof from relatives and friends. In short, I have withdrawn into my shell. Are the above symptoms confirmed negative symptoms of schizophrenia or are they symptoms of depression? Please advice.

You are already on two good antidepressants so it is less likely that you have uncontrolled depression. These seem more likely to be negative symptoms of schizophrenia according to the data you provided. However it is advisable that you consult a psychiatrist in person to decide any form of treatment too be improvised. Also it is would be prudent to reconsider the diagnosis too if you still face the same problems in spite of taking regular medications. Consult online for any further queries and assistance.

Dear, you are disappointed. Disappointment sometimes gives you symptoms like depression. Everything in your life will change. You will also change one day or other. Nothing is immortal. You just can't say, you cannot live without your ex-girl friend. You will live without her. So don't be so adamant. Be elastic. That is the solution. Take care.

Hi Mr. If she doesn't have any urge to have sex she can use some supplements consult a psychiatrist and psychologist for psychotherapy. If she is willing, if not then you will have no choice but to continue with life. It's not mental issue but a bodily issue may be, if there is no arousal at all.

Dear lybrate-user, please see a Psychiatrist for the resolution on immediate basis for medication. Along with it, psychotherapy will help you. Yes you can go to Homeopathy Psychiatrist first rather than medical psychiatrist. But if symptoms persists for more than 3 months after starting homeopathy treatment, do go to medical psychiatrist.

The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor i.e. the work. It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Now you may argue that it is the Government that is giving all the work. That is true in the overt sense, but if you look at it with spiritual eyes, you know that it is ultimately given by God. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. You must also talk to your superior that the workload is getting beyond your means and that you need more personnel to support you. Finally, learn to delegate much or some of your work to subordinates. If you do not trust, you will find it difficult to delegate. You may also take a multivitamin and multimineral along with your food. You must also keep a good regimen of exercise, sleep, and diet so that you can combat stress in whatever form it appears.

OCD's are neurotic disease where cognitive behavioral therapy has got limited role because the person is not in the position to overcome his obsessive behaviour and thoughts.

Hi doc i'm studying b. Tech .I'm unable to concentrate on my studies whenever I go to study i'm getting sleepy or mind is diverting like thinking something else. Will you please suggest me how to get concentrated on studies.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
At your age and with the course you are doing there may be a lot of distractions going on that may be the cause of the problem. In your case the subject may have reached boring proportions and so it may not find appeal to your mind. In that case the drowsiness will prevail. You could try group study to generate some interest because of the others involvement. Also, study difficult subjects in the early part of the morning when your mind is freshest and the metabolic rate; mood and energy levels are rising up to 11 am. Here are some things to do that will alleviate the situation, if you followed them meticulously. If you are under some stress, there will be difficulty remembering. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. So, catch a good 8 hours of sleep every night. 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 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, 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 are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.

You are doing mistake in stress level. Because of stress you are taking excessive food. Due to that your weight may increase. Some persons unable to control stress level they are taking excessive food. It may caused for obesity. No problem. Better to control food. Maintain diet. Take small meals two or three times. Do not take night time food. Take chapathi. Do not sit in home. Go to market or friends home. Better to walk. Do skipping in home. Walking and running helpful. Be happy always. Do not feel about weight. Be friendly with others. If you think about weights it may leads to some other problems. So do not think. Maintain diet and good excercises. Ok best of luck.

Dear lybrate-user, slowness, dullness, lethargy, feeling stressful, unhappiness and death wishes are all symptoms of major depressive disorder, which is a treatable disorder. You are young. Before depression affects your future, get into treatment by a psychiatrist. You may be asked to get few blood tests done to find the cause for your symptoms. If they are normal, you will be given antidepressant tablets for few months. After that your quality of life will improve. All the best.

Hello, in majority of the cases, the main cause is stress which makes the people intolerant, short-temper and increases the irritability. Which makes their personal life difficult. Take homoeopathic medication - schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks. Management: there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress. Exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (the mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc. But first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc.
