Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Dear Shivshankar. Alcohol is poison. Liver disintegrates poison and takes the poison itself thereby damaging itself. In the process of safeguarding body, liver is sacrificing self. Please quit alcohol. Take care.

How to improve your memory: 1. Pay attention. You can? t remember something if you never learned it, and you can? t learn something? that is, encode it into your brain? if you don? t pay enough attention to it. It takes about eight seconds of intense focus to process a piece of information into your memory. If you? re easily distracted, pick a quiet place where you won? t be interrupted. 2. Involve as many senses as possible. Try to relate information to colors, textures, smells, and tastes. The physical act of rewriting information can help imprint it onto your brain. Even if you? re a visual learner, read out loud what you want to remember. If you can recite it rhythmically, even better. 3. Relate information to what you already know. Connect new data to information you already remember, whether it? s new material that builds on previous knowledge, or something as simple as an address of someone who lives on a street where you already know someone. 4. For more complex material, focus on understanding basic ideas rather than memorizing isolated details. Practice explaining the ideas to someone else in your own words. 5. Rehearse information you? ve already learned. Review what you? ve learned the same day you learn it, and at intervals thereafter. This? spaced rehearsal? is more effective than cramming, especially for retaining what you? ve learned. 6. Manage stress in your life. Don't let it weigh you down. Counselling helps to learn to effectively deal with stress and become more functional. You can find your strengths and abilities to cope and manage with stressful situations. 7. Exercise helps to oxygenate and send blood to the brain. Don't scrounge on these. 8. Sleep well for 7-8 hours everyday. Poor sleeping habits reduce the brains capacity to focus, memorise and reproduce. 9. Eat food rich in omega 3: eat fish, mackerel, flax seed etc. To help the brain to be young and fresh. 10. Challenge your brain often and do activities out of your comfort zone so that the brain is forced to think, focus, memorise and reproduce. Daily and routine activities can be boring for the brain and not be a challenge at all. So do some puzzles, sudoku, try new roads, read new kind of books and material and keep giving the brain new food to chew on. If you have any questions, please click on private chat.

How to overcome social anxiety, in a quick, economical way,

Social anxiety can occur if you are judging yourself. Stop judging yourself. No one is perfect. Also if you want you can do skill building which will help you to be more confident in social gatherings. Practice what you want to say in front of the mirror. Anticipate how the conversation will flow and prepare yourself with what to say. Learn to talk slowly and clearly. Learn how to stand, sit etc( social etiquettes) and build your confidence. Body language plays an important role in sending out non verbal cues to other people. Mastering your body language and gestures will also help you overcome social anxiety. Remember that other people also feel anxious in social gatherings. This will help you to ease off some pressure on you. And you don't have to share intimate details of your life with them. Choose some common safe topics like weather, cars, sports, movies etc or whatever you find that works in your society and talk on those subjects. Good luck.

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you? re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse? no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn? t easy. But it? s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of alcoholism. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Trembling of hands and afraid to speak in public are symptoms of anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.
