My husband is alcoholic. He is taking 1.5 bottle in a day. He is not ready to take medical treatment now. I'm observing withdrawal symptoms like depression sweating dizziness overslept shrinking of body etc etc so what should I do and how can I help him? Please suggest

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Now it is difficult to give up all by himself because he has become addicted to alcohol and has a lot to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. He will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. Those symptoms are quite typical of alcoholics and may sometimes be the cause and at other times be the result.

I want to buy an electric kettle. I found one of the kettle of pegion brand good (made up of stainless steel) but it's upper cover is made up of glass. Whether cover made up of glass is toxic or non toxic. Also tell me the company is saying it's made up of stainless steel. Should I blindly trust them about stainless steel thing (model-kessel multi kettle 1.2L and model no-ptekkmk 1.2L) is good for health or not?

Glass is not harmful unless it is lined with any metallic or toxic adhesives. Generally you can trust Pigeon as a good and recognised company not to deceive people with something that is too obvious. Steel will not corrode and so that will be a safe bet to know whether it is true steel or not.

The feeling of romance is best stimulated in the context of a relationship. Maybe you could do with some marriage preparation classes. Yes, your relationships at home, especially with your parents have a great impact in yoru choice of partners and how well or badly you will relate to them. Unfortunately that does not sound too good as to how it went so far. You could do with some help even in that area. Just because of that you should not avoid marriage unless it is really irreversible. If (I know that this is a big 'IF") you find the right person soon, it could set you up for life happily. The negative influences you have experienced in your family of origin will have to be worked at so that it does not impinge on a good outcome. Without being so discouraged see if you can find the right guy. That is the key. A understanding, tolerance, respectful, and caring man will make a huge difference to any prospective girl. So keep the search and clean up your past to pave a smooth path to a happy marital relationship.

Your fear is doing you in. There is no doubt that relating to a member of the opposite sex is somewhat difficult. But we can add to that difficulty if we have certain predetermined notions that are incorrect and that can sabotage relations. One of the biggest impediments is the idea that you need to relate to girls with the intention of getting married. First you need to find girls with whom you feel a sense of comfort, just to learn to relate to them comfortably. If there is no ulterior purpose, it can be quite easy. The next thing to keep in mind is to use your domain strength to find the opening> For example, if you are good at a game, or subject, or at singing, you can see which girl is likely to be interested and you could relate to those persons with comfort. Keep sex out of your mind. It is better to start with known 'devils' which would be your classmates to break the ice. If you become self-conscious, then it is bound to jeopardize the contact. You will mess up the whole thing because it is close to being self-centered and no girl will like that at all. These are just a few suggestions. Now go and give it a good shot and report back about your rate of success.

I got engaged now. It was arranged. I was not ready but still I agreed seeing my parents tension. Now I can not talk or adjust with the person. I am sleeping a lot and having abnormal eating. I lost interest in everything and I am sad in ruining a person's life. He is always sad seeing how I behave and treat him. I do not want marriage but now my parents and relatives are saying its too late to say no. I do not know what to do. I was in love with my colleague and I said its not going to work out and agreed for the marriage. He was also my friend before. So still I contact him sometimes. I am feeling regret talking to him so I do not talk anymore. Nowadays I do not talk to anyone much. And when my fiance call I am having too much pressure anger and sad. I wish I could make him and my parents happy but I am scared.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

No, that is itself the wrong intention and objective. You should marry to please yourself first. It is better to cancel an engagement than a marriage. You could have a frank talk with your fiance and tell him the truth about your BF. Ask him to help call off the engagement for some reason. You should have mentioned about yoru BF before you got engaged but it is not too late even now. If your parents are not willing to change thier minds, you could still approach some elder relative to broach the topic and even if that fails to garner support then seek the help of a marriage counselor who I am sure will intervene. Do not go into a marriage so unhappily and unwillingly. Perhaps, you could show this reply to see if they are even slightly amenable to the idea.

Your systolic score is really fantastic but your diastolic score is dangerously poised. You need to give up smoking completely. If you want to drink, limit it to two small pegs per day or alternate days. If you willing it is better to give it up altogether. You need to watch your diet and eat in moderation and eat healthy foods only. You must do regular aerobic exercise. You must not only reduce stress but also have a good night's' sleep everyday. Drink a lot of fluids everyday. It is advisable to meet with a cardiologist every six months to assess your progress.

I have social anxiety (like nervousness weakness all day, excessive forehead sweating during interaction. I think it is due to my bad habit like over masturbation (bcoz I masturbate 3 to 4 times a day) for around 4 years till now. But now my anxiety problem is very severe like excessive sweating on my forehead which makes me uncomfortable and even makes me to avoid job interviews, social gathering and so on .I think it is due to masturbation. please clear my doubts is there any link between masturbation and excessive sweating and ghabrahat and nervousness?

There is no connection between masturbation and all the symptoms you are currently experiencing. You need help for your social anxiety and it is making you quite dysfunctional. Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.

I suggest you meet with a counselor and deal with some stress-related issues. I feel these are the causes of excess urination. If you are frightened chronically, you will tend to have excess discharge. Anyway, you should always work in tandem with a therapist along with medication to develop skills and techniques to favour a good life. That I suspect is missing in yoru recovery program and could have prevent the stress-induced urination.

This is nearly one in five deaths. • More than 10 times as many U.S. citizens have died prematurely from cigarette smoking than have died in all the wars fought by the United States during its history. • Smoking causes about 90% (or 9 out of 10) of all lung cancer deaths in men and women.1,2 More women die from lung cancer each year than from breast cancer. • About 80% (or 8 out of 10) of all deaths from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are caused by smoking. • Cigarette smoking increases risk for death from all causes in men and women. • Smoking is estimated to increase the risk— o For coronary heart disease by 2 to 4 times o For stroke by 2 to 4 times o Of men developing lung cancer by 25 times • Of women developing lung cancer by 25.7 times • Smoking causes diminished overall health, increased absenteeism from work, and increased health care utilization and cost. • Smoking causes stroke and coronary heart disease. • Even people who smoke fewer than five cigarettes a day can have early signs of cardiovascular disease. • Smoking damages blood vessels and can make them thicken and grow narrower. This makes your heart beat faster and your blood pressure go up. Clots can also form. • Blockages caused by smoking can also reduce blood flow to your legs and skin. • Lung diseases caused by smoking include COPD, which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. • Cigarette smoking causes most cases of lung cancer. • If you have asthma, tobacco smoke can trigger an attack or make an attack worse. • Smokers are 12 to 13 times more likely to die from COPD than nonsmokers. Smoking can cause cancer almost anywhere in your body:

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. 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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.
