I am addicted to drugs since 3 years I can not leave it now. Is there any way to leave it.

I am addicted to drugs since 3 years I can not leave it now. Is there any way to leave it.
It will feel like you cannot leave it but you can with some perseverance. You do not mention what type of drugs you abuse but when you enter hard drugs, you are into the troublesome area of addiction. I think that the impulse control under the influence these substances can be very limited. The danger of you doing more harmful things can be heightened. Before you get into that kind of behavior, you please quit at the earliest. To enable that I suggest that you go for immediate rehabilitation to a recovery center and stay there for at least 6 months until you are all clear and clean. Even after that you must continue addiction counseling for at least three years to completely remove the physical and psychological conditioning and craving. You will be told and taught new lifestyles, schedules, habits etc. to totally recover. You must work on the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factor and the script issue. Many people will not be able to resolve drug addiction in particular if they do not reach their ‘Hitting Rock Bottom’, i.e. the worst stage in their addiction to finally want to reform. Unfortunately for some unlucky few that can be death. So do be careful and do not delay seeking help now. If there are relapses, do not get too alarmed and give up. You must again persevere and fight this battle until you come out victorious. Your family members and medical fraternity must be there for you right through this recovery. You will also need to attend Narcotics Anonymous meetings for a long time too after the treatment is over.

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. You can contact me for further help, if required.

I am suffering from some problems such as anger, tension. How to deal with this, can I reduce all these with meditation or anything

MBBS
Integrated Medicine Specialist, Delhi
Hi Well done! By acknowledging that there is something askew, you have already taken the first step. Given our busy lives and social, cultural, financial and occupational sources of friction, nobody really is completely free from anger, tension and suffering. However, by regarding feelings like anger and tension as normal reactions to everyday stressors, you could take the bite out of them. What you could do is to welcome, observe and then let go off the feelings and the thoughts that accompany them. Very often our desire to switch off uncomfortable feelings and emotions causes more turmoil. Practices such as mindful meditation are known to be very effective in dealing with the issues you seem to be facing. You could go online and search for some guided imagery meditations to help you relax. Perhaps the most vital thing to remember is that our mind-body-sense apparatus distinguishes between what is pleasant and what is uncomfortable, and we automatically choose to run away from that which causes us discomfort. So, if you practice to not analyze or judge the thoughts and feelings that give rise to uncomfortable states, and not get drawn into these thoughts and feelings, but just observe them arising without participating in them, they, like everything else will dissipate. In short, let go- of expectations from yourself or others and realize that our tendency to like and dislike situations cause our responses to them. If you detach just a little bit, you might find that you can easily enter a space that is structure less and content less and you might just be more comfortable being who you are and content with whatever it is you have! My regards to you and my good wishes. I

Dear I don't think you need to get alarmed about this. You are just 20. There is no way you get problems related amnesia. Busy people do forget things. People with lot of work do forget many things. Executives employ personal assitants mainly because they are busy. Therefore, there is nothing to worry. If you want to address your education issue, there are many techniques to remember things. Effective learning methods will help you. To keep your memory intact, you should keep yourself active and agile. Polish your brain frequently. Take care.

My father drinks too much. I want him to quit drinking but he couldn't. He want to quit but he can't. He is addicted to alchohol. What should I do. Someone suggested me to give him dyzone tablets. But I didn't give him without any medical suggestion of doctor. What my father should do to quit drinking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Do not ever give your father medication of which you know nothing about. Even if you have any knowledge, you are not the competent authority to administer medication unless prescribed. I hope I have made myself very clear. It is highly dangerous and can be life threatening too. If your father has a desire to quit drinking, that is a good starting point. In that case do the following: 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 (including you) 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 your mother and the children and whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast.

I have quite short tempered. I get angry over little little things. And then keep thinking about that matter. I get distracted very easily. I have a constant fear of losing my loved ones. How can I stay calm and optimistic? I want to focus in my studies as I am into BDS profession.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

At your age this is not surprising. One is that your hormones are playing havoc, and two there may be some childhood issues that were not resolved and are coming up now seeking a resolution! For the latter, you need to check with your parents about that, and for the former you will need to tide this period over because it lasts for exactly two years. If you are blessed with a good value system, you will be able to come out of this unscathed. Even so, you can reach out to a counselor and sort out both possibilities and come good. I would also like you to be honest with yourself and see if you are getting angry because you are actually scared. Anger can easily cover fear and nobody will be any the wiser. But the sad part is that the fear does not get dealt with and people and you will be focused on the wrong feeling. Look at that too in your therapy. If you exercise vigorously, a lot of your anger will be dissipated. The fear of losing people may have its roots somewhere in childhood and my be quite unfounded for today. Sort this out with a counselor too and this stress may be affecting your concentration and memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. 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, 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. 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. 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. 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.

Respected Madam, Depression is a major psychiatric diagnosis of which a depressed mood is only one symptom. Other symptoms include decreased energy, loss of interest in activities, decreased concentration, changes in sleep/appetite/activity levels/weight along with depressive and even suicidal ideas. If you still believe that you are suffering from depression and if you have many of the symptoms mentioned above, the best course of action would be to consult with a local psychiatrist who could evaluate you in detail and confirm your diagnosis. He/she should also be able to treat your current depressive symptoms with medicines or therapy depending on the severity. Thank You Madam and Take Care.

If he is coughing very hard like you say, it could be a smoker's cough. He needs to get a doctor to examine him, and definitely he has to give up smoking, immediately.

Hello Doctor. I am seeking help. I feel I am depressed and often I get anger attacks and I feel helpless also because of my past life experience. I am 31 years old now.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are experiencing anger-related depression. Very simply put, you have not been expressing anger perhaps for a long time and that has piled up and has turned inwards to deplete your natural energy, leading to the depression. You need to look back and identify where and why it started, and then deal with it appropriately. This is an important exercise that may have to be done several times until the emotion is totally purged off of its energy. Any unprovoked and unexplained emotions always tend to have its roots way back into the past. It is possible that you have been discouraged to express anger in particular and you have learned to suppress it instead. But the system cannot hold unexpressed emotions for too long. In fact it becomes toxic to your system. For anger, vigorous exercise will deplete the energy but you must know the reasons too. Just talking, even writing about it, shouting it out, etc. Will give it catharsis. Everyday anger must also be expressed appropriately and adequately. Talk to a close friend or confidant or counselor, regularly about your feelings and things should shape up alright.

How To Deal With Depression?

How To Deal With Depression?

Depression is a very common phenomenon in contemporary times. It mostly affects those in their teenage and even those who are in their early thirties. Depression can be caused due to many reasons and must be treated quickly to prevent it from turning into a chronic illness with other side effects. Common symptoms of depression include less socialising, less talking with people and sitting at home or locked behind doors for long duration. At times, one even reduces the intake of food and remains in an agitated mood for a long period of time. When it becomes severe cases, medicines need to be administered to the patients to bring them out of their depression.

The interesting part of this condition is that the patient sometimes knows that he/she is suffering from depression and should try to get out of it.

Homeopathy for Depression and Anxiety

Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat depression and anxiety but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several medicines are available for depression treatment that can be selected on the basis of cause, condition, sensation and modalities of the complaints. For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person. Some of the commonly indicated homeopathic medicines are listed here:

  1. Aurum Metallicum- This medicine helps recover from deep-seated depression. The patient requiring this medicine is likely to have lost interest in life. There is a sense of loathing for life, lack of joy, loss of smile, loss of hope. He may have seen a very hectic and even successful career; and due to some triggers, there would be a U-turn and the person falls into deep valley of depression.

  2. Manganese- This metal medicine has ample of gloominess, depression and sadness.

Here are some of the tips and tricks of coping with depression:

  1. Overcome your thoughts with positivity: When in depression, one feels lethargic, is overcome by negative thoughts and cannot focus on doing anything. This needs to be challenged and battled with. During this time, you need to repeatedly convince yourself that there will good and bad times and there is always a way to deal with it. The bad phase would disappear just as it had come, and there is no point sulking on it now. Don’t let the negativity lead to more depression, as a healthy person still lives inside you.

  2. Get fresh air daily: Going out for a walk or even sitting in the balcony to get some fresh air and morning sunlight can do wonders when you are suffering from depression. Light slowly eats away the darkness in you and helps you see the positive side of things.

  3. Eat healthy food: There is a tendency to either give up on food or to eat a lot of junk food like pizza, chocolate and ice cream during this phase. This must be avoided. What is seen as depression eating is actually binge eating and can have serious consequences on your health and weight. Instead, healthy and regular meals should be eaten and meals should not be skipped at all.

  4. Stay connected: You must stay connected with people, even if it means bringing a forced smile on your face. This can do wonders in helping you cope with your depression.

Good Morning ~ It is not uncommon to forget when in times of intense fear or anxiety and this is a normal physiological reaction. I also believe that flushing of the face is a reaction to intense anxiety and fear and will reduce when you are treated for the same. I also strongly believe that you will do well with therapy for anxiety especially performance anxiety since if left untreated you might face a lot of problems in the future. I urge you to take the help of a psychiatrist immediately.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of love/future/marriage, you are having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.
