I masturbation addicted. I am 23 years old. I am suffering mentally depressed. It restricted my daily effective life. How I free from it.

I masturbation addicted. I am 23 years old. I am suffering mentally depressed. It restricted my daily effective life....
Masturbation is normal but not the addiction to it. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. For your depression you must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

For your memory enhancement: I suspect that the adolescent issues (If you are adolescent) with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. 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 night’s sleep, 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, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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 is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, strawberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

Hi, I am suffering from depression and anxiety. I am under weight. I am feeling so tensed. Please suggest me.
Often times depression and anxiety go together. At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition.

In alcoholism we have a term for one who has all the symptoms of alcoholism but does not consume alcohol. He is referred to as a 'dry alcoholic'. You seem to fit a description of an abstaining druggie. Don't take the labels seriously but it does convey is that there are a lot of issues from your past and habit that need to be worked upon. You must go to a addiction counselor and get proper therapy to clear all the effects of your past, issues with emotions and a lot of pain deep within. Once you have done so, there will be a marked change in life and outlook.

Hi, I am 34 years old. I have been unemployed for the last 4 years. During this time I prepared for government jobs, but couldn't get a job. Now I am planning to go back to private jobs. I have been working hard on my skills to get a private sector job, and I'm happy to have acquired a lot of skills. I managed to get a fake work experience letter for those four years, when I was not working from a friend is company. My problem is, I keep on thinking what if I get caught using a fake letter (though the probability of getting caught is extremely low, as the company went out of business few months back) .This fear is always on my mind and consumes a lot of mental energy from me. This fear is always holding me back from going to interviews and applying for jobs. Please help me to start a new positive life and how do I overcome this thinking habit.

This is actually a good sign: it only shows that your conscience does not accept your unethical action. You cannot leave your conscience behind and just forget it. therefore I suggest to have a clean mind and remove that letter and the mention of that sabbatical in your resume. You would rather face life telling the truth than be successful by lying. The job scene is competitive but that does not mean it is acceptable to use deception even if others do to somehow get a placement. With a clear conscience life will be better and your mind will be free of any guilt. If you believe in karma and if you believe in Christ's famous words, 'You reap what you sow' , you may pay a price in some form or the other in life, that is for sure. Sometimes far worse than the crime.

I was in a relationship with a girl and we broke up last year. After that I constantly stalk my ex. She has moved on and made a new boyfriend and they both are happy. I am in a habit to stalk my ex and his boyfriend too. Like what they are doing and where they are hanging out? And it has become a kind of addiction now. I do not feel happy and it feels like my life has no meaning now. Suggest me what should I do to get out of this?

Well, just get out of stalking. You are only feeding your jealousy more and more. This obsession is wrong and shows that you have a tendency to cling on to someone and cannot part that easily. This has to be resolved in therapy and could be an indicator of an unhealthy symbiosis. You need to get her out of your mind and learn to live yours minus her. Your are displaying a craving for her as though you need her for your survival. This will not suit having other relationships too because your clinging can become quite unbearable, and you may also tend to want to control the other person. Go and resolve these mattes and then look at getting into another relationship.

Dreams are the unconscious mind's way of processing various experiences that may be important to the individual. In this case there is an underlying fear that manifests in this form of dreams. Unexpressed fear can release itself in these dreams. Interpretation is very subjective but it is possible to wager a guess. In this dream it could indicate that this person is going to be restrained from travelling anywhere or even from venturing into any entrepreneurial deals. The failure of these ventures is also indicated. Sometimes, the fear may cause flatulence and this can also trigger gory dreams. I recommend that this person seeks some counseling and deal with these fears.

My query is in relation to hormonal changes in a women. I am divorced as my ex wife had unusual behaviour and says its because of hormonal changes (her age 40 same as mine). Massive outburst of anger range, thinking the person is best at times and then same person is bad if he acts or decides something which she does not like, abondament issue as if you are going to leave her (insecurity), impulsively leave a relationship without thinking of the consequences, compulsively lying and manipulation was also a part of our relationship as she wanted things her way and suite her needs, controlling nature and wanting others to behave that way. We did have differences and breakup in our relationship and use to not speak with each other, if I approach after 15-20 days she is all on me as to why I did not contact her for so many days but in reality she is the one to breakup and show no interest in a relationship at that point of time in her anger rage. She also degrades others family members thinking they are plotting against her and doubt all actions done by them are to harm her but in reality it is not the case. When taking any impulsive decision like leaving a relationship (done many times) for small things which can be sorted out she expects me to say sorry for it and call her back and not believe in all she said in anger and when told she could have called me and said sorry she says why I should call you because she is not at fault. Even she is not sure of her decision making and cannot control her emotions and doubts how she will make decisions at workplace. There is so much more to be said but I hope this provides a brief summary of my inconsistent  experience. I still do love her and want to be together but do not know is hormones causing all this or something else and how to deal with it. She is a student counsellor and has been divorced at age 23 and given her boy child to her father. She is currently living in Mumbai Nagpada.

To confirm the effects of hormones you will need to consult an endocrinologist. As matters stand I suspect that it has to do with paranoia, which is a fear based condition, but she could escalate anger over that. She may suffer from a severe case of rejection, which includes abandonment too. Control will be an important requirement for her to feel in charge. The fear is the key and if that can be identified and accepted by her, a lot of work can be done. You must take her to a counselor and if that person advises a doctor too, then you must consider that too.

The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor i.e. the family. 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 stress-related stimulus beyond our capacity. If you look at opportunities 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 response as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. You could also talk to yoru family members either by yourself or seek the help of a respected elder. You never know when someone else speaks on your behalf, they may just about succeed.
