Have tried a lot to quit smoking but can't quit. Please tell me the fastest way to avoid smoking and tell medication as well if possible. Thank You.

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/ weed, 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 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Sir when I trying to say something I fell stammering I take suggestion by physiatristAnd also done speech therapy but my problem not solve. What should I do?

M.Phill
Psychologist, Chennai
Let your mind relax- anxiety or nervousness is one of the major causes of stammering. Through proper relaxation this problem can be easily solved. When you are requiired to speak up and make people listen to what you have to say, give yourself a few minutes to clear your mind. It doesn't matter how long it takes to clear your mind. Once the mind has already reached the optimum state of relaxation, next step is to think positive thoughts. Think only positive thoughts and do not worry that you are going to stutter. This in itself is a great cure which will give you an inner confidence whenever you need to communicate. Think about someone you feel comfortable talking with. Start talking softly. Visualize thoughts and word. Read out loud. Slow down your speed of speech. Do relaxation and breathing exercises.

TOP 10 CAUSES FOR LOW SELF ESTEEM
Self esteem is how one judges oneself. This judgement is based on various parameters and also experiences from childhood. While a positive self esteem allows a person to form a realistic sense of self and their surroundings, low self esteem can cause a problem to harbour a negative and defeatist attitude about themselves and life in general. Below, are mentioned top 10 causes for poor self esteem:
1. CHILD ABUSE AND PUNISHMENT: if someone has undergone physical and emotional abuse as a child, then the implied message that the child gets about themselves is that they are bad and deserve to be punished. Most likely culprits are parents, relatives, neighbours, strangers and teachers. Every child requires love, attention, praise and affection while growing up so that they can develop a healthy sense of self. Parental ill treatment and negligence can make the child feel insecure, abandoned and mistrustful of people. This hampers with their ability to develop secure relationships as a child and as an adult. They could even develop anti social behaviours like aggressiveness, which could lead to low self esteem.
2. EXCESSIVE CRITICISM AND COMPARISONS: Parents tend to excessively criticise their children over trivial issues like mastering a task in young age and comparing with other children or siblings over studies, looks and behaviour. When a child is constantly reminded that he is no good, it results in the child feeling shame and inadequate in themselves. Such events create a feeling of worthlessness and pessimism and hesitancy to work towards positive thinking.
3. EXPECTATIONS: Some parents have unrealistic expectations from their children which may not be age appropriate or what the child wants to do. If a child is constantly reminded of this, then he gets the feelings of letting down his parents which bring on feelings of guilt. It usually happens with parents who have some unfulfilled dreams of their own. As an adult, such people will suffer from poor self esteem as they would constantly feel that they don't measure up to people's expectations of them.
4. PHYSICAL LOOKS: If a person thinks that their physical appearance is lesser in comparison to another person, then it could lead to feelings of poor self esteem. In a society which is driven by physical beauty, this is a very common cause for self esteem issues, especially for girls.
5. FINANCIAL AND SOCIAL POSITION: If a person is constantly comparing their financial and social position to people who are at a higher level, then it calls for poor sense of self. Feelings of inferiority and insignificance could get highlighted.
6. UNFULLFILLED DREAMS: When peoples dreams and desires remain unfulfilled despite hard work, they treat failure as an ultimate truth which results in poor self image.
7. UNEMPLOYMENT: Unemployment can make a person feel unsafe, insecure, helpless and worthless. Inability to provide for their family can be very daunting and lead to poor self esteem.
8. BETRAYAL: Betrayal in a romantic relationship and/or significant relationships can rob a person of his trust on themselves and make them think that there is something wrong with them.
9. ILL HEALTH: If a person has been suffering ill health/ disability for some time, it can rob them of self confidence to do tasks independently. If the quality of life is compromised or they are unable to maintain social relationships due to ill health, then it can become a reason for poor sense of self.
10. NEGATIVE EXPERIENCES: Negative experiences are a part of everyone's lives. If for some reason, a person goes through a string of such experiences like demotion, betrayal, unemployment, isolation, etc, the person starts thinking that something is wrong with them and they have done something to deserve it.

It is important to think positively and have a realistic image of self, others and situations. Counselling and Psychotherapy can help people immensely to overcome such experiences, re-parent themselves and work on their strengths and limitations and develop a healthy sense of self.

Dear Lybrate user One sided love is painful. Drugs are not the solution. Your self esteem is hampered so that needs to be improved. Secondly your focus needs to be changed from that girl to your life career and other relationships that you have. Make a list of things that you enjoy and do them quite often. Identity the triggers that make you think of her and make you feel hopeless and upset and avoid those triggers. Think about the ones who love you unconditionally and spend quality time with them. Make a list of your goals both short term and long term and according to them make a list of things that you need to do. Break all your goals into sub goals and figure out which things you need to do right now and work hard on it. Make a list of your achievements and be happy that you have done it. Notice all the the achievements you have even the small ones and treat yourself for them. A healthy mind lives in a healthy body so eat healthy have a timely and a good quality sleep everyday do some physical exercise anything you would like to. Motivate yourself from these negative experiences instead for them making you feel low and hopeless. Contact me in private if you think you need any help. Good luck. Take care.

Dear,. Sexual fantasies are normal and you can have any type of fantasies. The tricky part is how you are going to fulfill any fantasy. In your case, you tried to fulfill one of your fantasy with the help of your girl friend and another male friend. That is causing confusion. Because you revered your girl friend as only your friend and her deviation from truth gave you jitters. Don't worry. Understanding is the key and answer to many misunderstandings. Take care.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Dear , that is not a symptom to worry on. You are worried and apprehensive. You are anxious about your safety and therefore such illusions are common. Don;'t worry. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Symptoms of Autism

Here are some symptoms of autism in children 

Symptoms of Autism
Hi! Good morning! This is Dr. Rakesh Jain. I’m a Pediatric Neurologist working at Fortis Hospital, Gurgaon.
Today, I’m going to talk briefly about autism which is very commonly seen nowadays, in children.  I would like to tell you what are the common symptoms and how would you identify autism in the early childhood.
A child at the age of one year who doesn’t do finger pointing, who doesn’t have good eye contact, doesn’t start uttering a single word, doesn’t have a joint attention or there are some other concern like child doesn’t mix up with the children of his own age, then, you must suspect either, there is some problem in hearing and accordingly you should go to a pediatrician to get him checked.

So, first of all, pediatrician would ask you to do a hearing test. If the hearing test is normal, then, we must think about the diagnosis of autism. It is called autistic spectrum disorder. It could be mild, moderate, severe. It may be associated with some other problems like some behavior problems, hyperactivity, poor attention, poor memory, epilepsy, so on and so forth. So, it is really important to diagnose this disorder as early as we can so that we can identify the cause of it and we can try to mend it accordingly.

And, there is no cure as such for autism. That’s the scary thing that there is no cure but having diagnosed it properly, early in life, we could do so many things, lots of therapies, for example, occupational therapy, speech therapy, sensory integration, psychological support and there are some medication as well to help with the comorbidities, not to treat the disorder as a core treatment .

If you want to know any further about it, and if your child is having any of the symptoms please, do contact your local pediatrician for basic screening and if you want to reach me, you could either visit me or you could connect me through Lybrate.
Thank you very much for your kind attention!
