I am 20 years old I am smoking cigars vigourisly I want the remedy to stop the smoking how can I do it.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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

This is a psychiatric or psychologist problem. I had a serious crush on a girl. When I met her she was in depression and had committed suicide attempts several times after her boyfriend broke up with her. I asked her to be my gf and she agreed. I thought I could love her to help her out if this misery. But its been 2 months, she says she loves me but not as much as her ex. She cries daily for sometime and misses him. But feels like she cannot live without him and will die without him. Sometimes she says he has recovered 80% and sometimes she has only 20%. I do not know what to do. I am damn serious for her and I love her. But she is serious for her ex. Now her ex wants her back What should I do to get her out of her ex? Or is this ever going to work?

Hello Lybrate user, YOu are very serious about the girl but she is not because you have loved her without any conditions but she came to you for the reason to forget her past. In case you want, she should come to you then first you have to accept her unconditionally with her love towards her ex and also show her how much you care and also strengths of your personality. Strenghts like your care, your emotions etc. But apart from this fact, you have to befriend her before making her your GF. THe first step is Friendship. These could be a few ways that can be done to make her understand you better.

Being fearful, will make you avoid situations which can effect your overall quality of life and not just your career. The more you avoid the more situation will get worse, so it is like a vicious circle. If you find difficult to express yourself in social situations, it is important for you to consult a psychologist, who can help you overcome this.

If I will stop smoking and will not smoke for almost a year do my lungs start operating/functioning like before. Please advise.

Dear , if you stop smoking, immediately your lungs starts to get repaired. It is the process inbuilt in your body. Within 3 to 6 months, your lungs will be able to work properly. Within a year, your lung should have the full potential quit smoking. You can. Take care.

You may need psychotherapy and medicines for longer period. Start doing exercise and morning walk 30--45 minutes daily. Also yoga pranayam and meditation will help. For more scientific suggestions feel free to ask with details.

Dr, I had protected intercourse on 14th day of my menstrual cycle. However, the first few seconds were unprotected. Out of fear, I took Ipill after 15 hours. Now, it's been 7 days since I took Ipill. Still, no bleeding (neither BTB nor periods). I am very scared as I read that even few seconds of penetration can cause pregnancy and also, I was in my fertile window. Next expected period is on 19th May. Please let me know if I can take serum beta HCG test to rule out any risk? Does no BTB means I am at risk? Also, what are my chances of being pregnant.

You had sex in your fertile window, and unprotected sex can definitely cause pregnancy. But sine you had an i-pill within time it is less likely that you would conceive. I-pill has it's own side effects like irregular bleeds, disturbed ovulations and mood swings. Hence frequent use is discouraged. Serum beta hcg only give a probable guide of pregnancy. The only best thing would be to wait and watch. If you miss your scheduled period this month, do a urine pregnancy test. If it tests positive you are most probably pregnant, you need to consult a gynaecologist without delay. If it tests negative you can wait for periods further.

Yes, if it can be detected it means you are a heavy user. It is normally visible on the lungs, if an X-ray is taken. Patches of lungs will be covered by the tobacco tar and it will be visible on the X-ray.

I can't remember anything for longtime and I have to make more repeats to remember, how can I improve my memory?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

I have a problem that I forgot the things such as what I have studied, where I put my things, so please suggest me some good medicines or anything else so that I become well.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

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 are 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, 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.

I have a smoking habit. Sometimes I get chest pain and hard to breath problem and throat infection.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
All of these symptoms and you are barely 21 years of age. You are certainly playing dangerously with your life. Go to your physician and get a thorough medical check done with particular emphasis on your symptoms. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. 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. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also 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. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

You need to process those experiences and get an understanding of what, how, why it happened. This will help you to put it behind you and come to accept it with reducing anger and depression. Then you can focus on what is good and positive in your life now and discover n develop your strengths too. A counselling psychologist can help you in this.

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

Use the statement 'I don't' as opposed to 'I can't' A recent study revealed that it is more psychologically empowering to believe and state that YOU DONT do something as opposed to believing and stating that YOU CANT do said thing / consume said meal.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. You will get a job according to your qualification. In getting a job if you see status or salary in the initial stages, you may not be satisfied at all. Secondly you should learn to like the job you are doing, instead of waiting for a job of your own liking. I suggest online motivation counseling. Take care.

I am a 19 years old girl. I've been going through major mood swings and I just feel empty in my heart sometimes. Even though I'm surrounded by so many people I still feel lonely. I am really close to one of my friends and I have realised that only when he's around in the morning I wake up with this positive energy. But even if everything going right I always feel somethings not right. I have suddenly lost interest in talking to my relatives or family. I am a photography student and I have kind off lost my interest and dedication in it too. I just can't figure out whats wrong. I have no answers to my questions. I feel low most of the time. When someone asks me whats wrong I get irritated even more cz I myself can't answer that question. Sometimes I feel I should consult a psychologist. I feel worthless and directionless. I feel like I won't be able to find work once I pass out of college. There are just too many things going on in my mind and I end up over thinking. I don't want to take any sort of anti depressants or something. I'm just worried about when things would get back to normal. I get lost in my own world and sometimes feel like going on rides or going out alone. No one lets me be. I don't know what to do.

Dear lybrate-user, you are having depression now. Normally depression increase to a particular severity level and then improve on its own in around 9 to 12 months. So if you do not take treatment it will take 9 month for improvement. With treatment you will find improvement in your symptom in 3 weeks. I would seriously recommend you to consult psychiatrist and start treatment. You can start brisk walking or exercise daily, drink approx 4L of water daily. Maintain your sleep and wakeup time. You will get some improvement with these measures. All d best.
