Smoking can stain your teeth yellow

Smoking can stain your teeth yellow, cause bad breath, and increases your risk of gum disease, breathing problems
If you smoke 20 or more cigarettes a day, you're six times more likely to develop mouth cancer than someone who doesn't smoke. So giving up smoking is important if you want to look and feel better.

Best option is to see a psychologist who is specialist in conducting interest and aptitude tests. Based on the reports, you will be given vocational guidance and career counselling regarding what are the best available options for you. Interest testing will tell which are your fields of interest while aptitude testing will test whether you have ability to succeed in areas of your interest.

Madam, eventhough you may be better as of now, relapse of depression can occur. The medicines help maintain the neurotransmitter balance in the brain. If your history of depression is long, it is advisable to keep meeting your psychiatrist regularly and continue medicine as per instructions. Feeling right now and having a worse episode later may be catastrophic. Its just like immunisation. You can choose not to get vaccine of a certain illness by avoiding the injection but later the consequences are severe.

Now a days I feel very depressed. I can't explain why. I am loosing my self confidence.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Now a days I feel very depressed. I can't explain why. I am loosing my self confidence.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Variety is the spice of life. All of us tend to get bored by our routines and therefore we have the concept of a weekly off and vacation. To avoid getting bored of things , do everything in moderation . Take short breaks in between eg exercise 5 days a week, or change the form of exercise - gym for 3 days, go to the park on the other 3 days and take an off on one day . Likewise for working for your dream, set monthly ,weekly and daily targets . Reward yourself whenever you are able to achieve your target . Take a break for a couple of days . You don't have to be productive 24X7.

I am 28 years old. I have smoking habit. I need to forget that habit. Pls help me.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Happy to know that you want to forget smoking. Please try to stop smoking at the earliest. It has many health benefits in the long run. When you stop suddenly, you may get withdrawal symptoms like restlessness, irritability, lack of concentration, increased hunger, sleep disturbance, headache, impatience, anxiety, depression, etc. If you have them please don’t get back to smoking, take nicotine gum or lozenge or patch. They are available in all medical shops. You don’t need a prescription from doctors. Use 2 mg gum if you smoke less than 25 cigarettes/day. Use 4 mg gum if you smoke more than 25 cigarettes/day. First 6 weeks, use 1 gum every 1 – 2 hours. Reduce it in week 7 – 9 to one gum every 2 – 4 hours. In week 10 – 12, reduce it further to 1 gum every 4 -8 hours. By 3 months, you will be able to stop both cigarettes and gum fully without any withdrawal symptoms. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it like vacation or books or new mobile. Smoking is a chronic relapsing condition like diabetes and B.P. So please don’t worry if you restart smoking. Start all over again to stop. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like smoking friends, along with alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will like a passing cloud.

Definitely possible. First and foremost will be to practice in a familiar surrounding . Go to gyms and other activity places to interact with people. Try to practice in front of mirror. Practice relaxation exercises and yoga which can help. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. Avoid too much caffeine and junk food. Last and most importantly believe in yourself and face it. Usually we feel nervous because we think what others think about us. Erase such thoughts and march ahead in life. All the best. Be relaxed stay healthy.

I am 19 year old female. I've never experienced breathlessness low bp (89/53) and dizziness before that viral fever in february. I also consulted an ENT doctor at that time. He ran an ECG which showed everything normal. But now I feel like extreme weakness and body ache. There is profuse sweating in my palms all the time. After climbing stairs or walking distance I can hardly breathe! Whenever I do some work it feels I am having mild fever. My periods are late and extremely painful this time. I have lost my appetite to a great extent. The doctor gave me nutritional supplements. But I still don't feel good. What's wrong with me and what should I do?

Why my husband feel totally drain out by 6 pm in the evening everyday. He is 56 years old man.
Dear, the reason could be stress. 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. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Cbt or cognitive behaviour therapy will help you to discover your unhelpful and outdated thoughts, beliefs and and replace them with more helpful, updated thoughts, beliefs and behaviors. You also learn to connect thoughts to feelings and behaviours, monitor your thoughts and the feelings linked to it and an appropriate thought / belief to help you to scale down overwhelming feelings of hopelessness, helplessness and worthlessness. Cbt helps to set up a simple and achievable daily routine and to stick by it to help depressive people achieve daily goals and increase self worthiness. Psychoanalysis is broadly about talking and exploring the childhood of the patient to discover unhealthy beliefs about self, others and the world and also open up any toxic experiences and relationships of the past which might be undermining the confidence of the patient psychologically. These experiences are processed in an unbiased, non judgemental and therapeutic space so that the patient is able to see these experiences in a different and positive perspective and attach helpful and positive insights, meanings and conclusions in order to enhance emotional wellbeing and effective living for personal growth and development.
