Can using tobacco increase anxiety? I am controlling my anxiety bitterly by not thinking much about bad things bit tobacco using is my habit now. Tell me what to do?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Yes lybrate-user, tobacco increases anxiety since it alerts the brain directly within seconds of its use. Moreover you may need to use tobacco often and repeatedly. There are many other health hazards due to tobacco. Aatif, you are young. Stopping tobacco at this age is comparatively less difficult than at later age. Motivate yourself not to use tobacco. If you are still anxious, take relaxation therapy or anxiolytic tablets from a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist.

I am 45 years old and have BP diabetic and have undergone angioplasty in 2011. I have been jobless last 10 years and small businesses I have tried my hand have failed miserably. I drink alcohol like crazy till I fall when I am too depressed. I am contemplating divorce as well as my wife of almost 20 years has started accusing me of nonsense. My father had committed suicide 5 years ago and my mother sold my ancestral property and vanished in thin air. What to do.

From what you describe, it appears like that even though you have a medical problem which you have barely fixed you continue to test your health in obviously dangerous ways. This is an indication that you do not comply with healthy ways and much more can be read from that. Now, whether the problems came first or your irresponsible behavior caused these health problems may be a contentious point. From this, I can garner that you may be contributing to the conflict with your wife to a large extent, after so many years of marriage, and now pushing for a divorce that may add more to your misery. With your father having committed suicide, which incidentally can run in families, you need to be very responsible about various things. My advice is that you drop the idea of divorce and sort out the differences with your wife together with the help of a marriage counselor, immediately. Then you must give up your drinking habit and if need be, admit yourself in a rehabilitation center to resolve that. You must get into a health regimen that will ensure good health and longevity. You must also look at getting some employment since the business deals failed ( I do not know how much of that was due to your attitude). Please take serious note of my suggestions even if it upsets you and take concrete action steps to reduce the stressful life you are leading right now. They have only one outcome if you continued to persist with it: total ruin and destruction that need not be named.

I have lack of concentration issue. I forget the things by way. Please suggest solution. Or if any Ayurvedic medicine ?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Step 1 Make a tally of every time your mind wanders on a 3x5 card. Divide the card up into three sections: morning, afternoon and night. Every time you catch your mind wandering, make a little check mark in the appropriate box. After only a little while, you'll find that your mind won't wander as often, simply by keeping a tally! Being aware of the issue is the first step, and this method helps you stay very aware of each time you lose your concentration. Your awareness of what you're doing will eventually help you improve your concentration, without any added effort. With this method, you'll eventually be able to pinpoint your most vulnerable times. Say you find a lot of tallies during the morning, when you're still tired and your mind is likely to drift. That's a sign that you should be improving your concentration by getting more sleep, or eating a healthy breakfast. Improve Your Concentration Step 2. Set aside specific times during the day in order to let your mind wander or your concentration drift. If you have a set time during the day ? say your "drift off" time is at 5:30 every day, when you get back from school or work ? you may be less likely to sanction drifting off during 11 a.m. or 3 p.m. If you catch yourself drifting off during any of the unsanctioned times, tell yourself that you have a designated drift off time and try to keep your brain concentrated on whatever task is at hand. Improve Your Concentration Step 3 Help improve the flow of oxygen to the brain. Blood is the main vehicle of oxygen in our bodies. But blood gets pooled in the lower half of our bodies as a result of gravity, and doesn't push as much oxygen to the brain, where it helps improve concentration. In order to help oxygenate the brain, get up and take a walk every so often to get the blood pumping. If you're stuck at work and you can't really carve out the time for exercise, try doing exercises at work. These can include any number of things, including isometric or aerobic exercises. Improve Your Concentration Step 4.Remember to give your brain a quick break at least every hour, at most every 30 minutes. If your brain has to concentrate consistently for hours at a time, it loses processing power and your concentration levels slip.Better to space your project out and take breaks or power naps in between in order to reboot your concentration and keep it humming at closer to 100%. Improve Your Concentration Step 5. Practice doing one thing at a time, and doing it to completion.If you jump all over the place and start a new project before you've finished the last one, you're telling your brain that it's okay to switch from one subject to another. If you really want to improve your concentration, you'll start trying to convince your brain to finish one task before you move onto the next one. Apply this philosophy to as many different tasks in your life as possible. You may think that finishing one book before starting the other has nothing to do with finishing work on one car before starting work on another, but they're surprisingly alike if you think about. Even the smallest tasks have reverberations in other parts of your life. Improve Your Concentration Step 6 Be aware of the spider technique. What happens when you hold a vibrating tuning fork next to a web with a spider in it? The spider comes to investigate where the noise is coming from because it pays to be curious. But what happens if you repeatedly hold a vibrating tuning fork next to the spider's lair After a while, the spider won't stop to investigate the tuning fork anymore. It knows what to expect, so it ignores it. The spider technique is behaving just like the spider. Expect for distractions to come and try to throw you off your concentration. A door slams. A bird whistles. A flash mob erupts. Whatever the distraction is, continue focusing on your task at hand. Be like the spider and turn a blind eye to distractions that you know can throw you off your concentration. Improve Your Concentration Step 7 Do work at a desk, not your bed. Your bed is where you sleep; your desk is where you work and concentrate. Your mind makes these sorts or associations subconsciously, which means that you're sending a "sleep" signal to your mind if you're trying to work on your bed. This is counterproductive because you're actually asking your brain to do two things at once (concentrate and sleep). Instead, ask you brain to either concentrate or sleep by choosing your workstation carefully. Improve Your Concentration Step 8 Try the five-more rule. The five-more rule is simple. Whenever you feel like quitting or losing concentration, tell yourself to do five more of whatever you were doing. If it's math problems, do five more problems. If it's reading, do five more pages. If it's concentrating, do five more minutes. Find the energy deep within to do five more of whatever you were you doing. Method 2 of 3: Keywords Technique 1 Try the Keywords Technique. In this simple technique, the only thing you have to do is to find the right keyword on what you are studying or doing and whenever you lose concentration or feel distracted or your mind wanders to something else, start saying that keyword repeatedly in your mind until you come back to the topic at hand. The keyword in this technique is not a single, fixed word but keeps changing according to your study or work. There are no rules to select the keyword and whichever word the person feels that it will bring back his concentration can be used as a keyword. Example: When you are reading an article about the guitar. Here the keyword guitar can be used. Start reading each sentence slowly and while reading, whenever you feel distracted or not able to understand or concentrate, start saying the keyword guitar, guitar, guitar, guitar, guitar until your mind comes back to the article and then you can continue your reading. Ask privately if more doubts

After my result of gate exam I am very sad and nothing like to me please give me some suggestions for happiness life.

BHMS, CGO
Homeopath, Pune
1) Therapy: In some cases of depression, the root cause can be issues that have not been dealt with in a person’s life. The causes of depression are many because not all cases are alike. Some causes may be chemical and others emotional or it could be a combination of the two. Therapy has been known to be the most effective in dealing with depression. Lives can build up with pressures and work to the point of feeling run down and emotionally spent. People will most often seek the easiest alternative but sometimes just talking out your issues with someone trained to listen will help with depression. 2. Exercise: Exercise boosts every part of the body including blood flow to the arteries and endorphins which are naturally good for pain and even depression. Endorphins actually release other neurotransmitters in the body such as serotonin which is what antidepressants actually address. Endorphins release serotonin naturally and increase emotional health. Studies have proven that exercise improves cases of depression in patients suffering with this condition. 3. Iron: There are several studies that now indicate that a deficiency in iron is a cause of depression. There is a specific iron deficiency that is directly related to depression and some of the symptoms are lack of appetite, irritability and fatigue. There are many symptoms associated with this type of iron deficiency and it may be the underlying cause of a portion of people facing this issue. These underlying issues can lead to feelings of sadness and depression. An increase of iron in the diet can be the help needed to overcome issues of depression. 4. Fish Oil: Fish oil is known to boost many aspects of health and one of these is depression. When the body is getting all it needs nutritionally the mind follows. Fish oil contains a bevy of omega-3 fatty acids. These acids are known to improve emotional well-being naturally. You can buy fish oil that is molecularly distilled and you can ensure you are getting the purest form of fish oil available. 5. Folic Acid: Folic acid is an integral part of our dietary needs and should be considered when facing issues of depression. A deficiency of folate in the body is directly linked to depression in some cases and you can boost your happiness by adding foods rich in folate to your diet. Nutrition can play a large role in mood elevation. Folate is found naturally in foods such as grains, fruits and vegetables. Leafy greens that are rich in folate which are added to the diet have been shown to improve moods and emotional health as well as physical health. After each session you can feel the difference because you have come a little more closely to the root of your emotional issues. Boosting your happiness could just be talking out the things that cause you sadness in life. Gaining a Happy Perspective After dealing with nutritional deficiency or emotional deficiency it is important to put positive things forward in your life. Listen to positive affirmations during your day, avoid negative people and situations if you can do this. It is beneficial to emotional health to avoid drama and people who love drama. Boosting your happiness could be as simple as avoiding negative people and situations. Homeopathic medicine work for people and can be an alternative after normal remedies fail to boost happiness. However they should be a last resort not the first resort for boosting emotional health.

How can I leave smoking cigarette I can't left cigarette please tell me what can I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It only feels like you can't, but if you persevere, you will succeed.Congrats for your desire to quit smoking. It is now important that you actually do it and persevere with it. When you decide, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since you want to do it I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support. I guess you know all the harm cigarettes do to your system, which is why I suppose you are seeking to quit. But now you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. 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, for a little while. 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 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.

It is nice to know that you have concern for your friend. Liquor is dangerous to health as well as it has social and economical implications. If a person is addicted to alcohol, he should consult a psychiatrist. Deaddiction procedure includes detoxification, vitamin supplementation, psychotherapy, and anticraving medicines. Certainly he will be helped.

My son aged 24 years under post graduate, not interested in studies, did not want to do job. Our financial condition is not so good. What will I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must make him do an aptitude test through a career guidance counselor and see if he has other talents which can be developed or explored. Do not just leave him in this condition. He could become dysfunctional and be a burden to you and society. Passivity is criminal and something, even if it is wrong, must be done soon. Do not give him an option of being idle. He must work and earn his own keep. You will be responsible for letting him live like this and after sometime, when he becomes used to this lifestyle, it will become near impossible to change him. You may also take him to a counselor and see if there is any other matter wrong with him and get him treated for the same.

Hello Sir, What are the symptoms of Social Anxiety Disorder and what can be done to get out of it?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Bhopal
Social phobias often start in adolescence and are centred around a fear of scrutiny by other people in comparatively small groups (as opposed to crowds), usually leading to avoidance of social situations. Unlike most other phobias, social phobias are equally common in men and women. They may be discrete (i. E. Restricted to eating in public, to public speaking, or to encounters with the opposite sex) or diffuse, involving almost all social situations outside the family circle. A fear of vomiting in public may be important. Direct eye-to-eye confrontation may be particularly stressful in some cultures. Social phobias are usually associated with low self-esteem and fear of criticism. They may present as a complaint of blushing, hand tremor, nausea, or urgency of micturition, the individual sometimes being convinced that one of these secondary manifestations of anxiety is the primary problem; symptoms may progress to panic attacks. Avoidance is often marked, and in extreme cases may result in almost complete social isolation.(as per icd)

Can family issue trigger a panic attack? And also I wanted to know how to deal with it.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, First of all lets learn what is panic attack- A panic attack is a sudden surge of overwhelming anxiety and fear. Your heart pounds and you can’t breathe. You may even feel like you’re dying or going crazy. Left untreated, panic attacks can lead to panic disorder and other problems. They may even cause you to withdraw from normal activities. But panic attacks can be cured and the sooner you seek help, the better. With treatment, you can reduce or eliminate the symptoms of panic and regain control of your life. Panic attacks often strike when you’re away from home, but they can happen anywhere and at any time. You may have one while you’re in a store shopping, walking down the street, driving in your car, or sitting on the couch at home. The signs and symptoms of a panic attack develop abruptly and usually reach their peak within 10 minutes. Most panic attacks end within 20 to 30 minutes, and they rarely last more than an hour. A full-blown panic attack includes a combination of the following signs and symptoms: Shortness of breath or hyperventilation Heart palpitations or a racing heart Chest pain or discomfort Trembling or shaking Choking feeling Feeling unreal or detached from your surroundings Sweating Nausea or upset stomach Feeling dizzy, light-headed, or faint Numbness or tingling sensations Hot or cold flashes Fear of dying, losing control, or going crazy Yes, any trigger can cause a panic attack. When it comes to panic attacks, professional treatment and therapy can make a big difference. But there are many things you can do to help yourself, too: Learn about panic. Simply knowing more about panic can go a long way towards relieving your distress. So read up on anxiety, panic disorder, and the fight-or-flight response experienced during a panic attack. You’ll learn that the sensations and feelings you have when you panic are normal and that you aren’t going crazy. Avoid smoking and caffeine. Smoking and caffeine can provoke panic attacks in people who are susceptible. As a result, it’s wise to avoid cigarettes, coffee, and other caffeinated beverages. Also be careful with medications that contain stimulants, such as diet pills and non-drowsy cold medications. Learn how to control your breathing. Hyperventilation brings on many sensations (such as lightheadedness and tightness of the chest) that occur during a panic attack. Deep breathing, on the other hand, can relieve the symptoms of panic. By learning to control your breathing, you develop a coping skill that you can use to calm yourself down when you begin to feel anxious. If you know how to control your breathing, you are also less likely to create the very sensations that you are afraid of. Practice relaxation techniques. When practiced regularly, activities such as yoga, meditation, and progressive muscle relaxation strengthen the body’s relaxation response—the opposite of the stress response involved in anxiety and panic. And not only do these relaxation practices promote relaxation, but they also increase feelings of joy and equanimity. So make time for them in your daily routine. Take help from a psychologist to deal with it better. All the very best.

Hello Sweta, Are you facing any kind of situation or circumstance due to which you are feeling depressed. The way to reduce depression will be to take few sessions on managing your thoughts. Depression is a result of thoughts that are formed in our mind, and so you can opt for brief therapy that will help you to replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts. You can also practice deep breathing exercise, if you do this accompanied with an expert, then the chances are 100% relief. Regards Stuti
