How to quit smoking easily without any problems?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , quitting smoking is tricky but is very easy task. There are several methods in psychotherapy to quit smoking. Initially you need to show will power which we will impart through motivation therapy and mind power building therapy. Then slowly you learn to adjust yourself with the non-smoking regime. It will take time, but will be a success. Consult me for more online therapy and counseling. Take care.

If you had had ADHD, it is possible that this may be a leftover effect of that. You are currently over-weight, and the exercise you are doing may not suffice for vigorousness. Your sedentary life and less work at your job may further bring in the monotony and lethargy. Your lifestyle is really a choice and your indulgence to this passive life must be given up and you must fill in your day (even at work) with more interesting and mind-occupying activities. Although the job does not offer much in terms of challenge, you can do something about it, instead of just accepting it. Even your routine is boring. So get off of your butt and start an active life to live longer and to live well. Meet with a counselor and discuss your emotions, particularly that of anger.

Dear lybrate-user, anger is an emotion. You are 21 and your adult hormones are the basic causes for your anger. You may practice yoga and meditation to control your anger. Consult a psychologist online or in person for meditation techniques. Take care.

Good Afternoon ~ I empathize with your condition and understand that you are going through a tough time. Loss can be of many type and loss of a close person can be a very depressing and stressful situation for you and many others. However, bereavement which is normal usually lasts for about 6 months, and anything more than that can be classified as treatable. I can certainly help with prescribing medications for depression that you hare having based on your symptoms.

You are indeed unique and there is no one who is going to be like you, ever! You have a problem of self-acceptance, and if I may venture to say may be a rejection issue. This latter may have happened due to an actual rejection which you may have experienced very early in your life. The solution to this is a matter of genuine self-acceptance or self-love. I am not talking about narcissism: this is a genuine love of yourself. It is not based on your appearance alone. You must work on developing yourself in five areas: the physical fitness, emotional fitness, intellectual fitness, social fitness and spiritual fitness. I would also suggest you attend a good personality development program, a speech training course (I suggest the Toastmasters Club), a conversation and elocution course, and to do a personal grooming course too. Education is very good to boost self-confidence, and together with that if you develop socializing skills, you will make it big. Meet with a counselor and ask to be trained in handling emotions, and that will just take you places. Read a lot and meet lots of people, even if you feel too conscious: in time you will get out of this backwardness very well. Do physical fitness exercises regularly. Ultimately, if you believe in God, you will know that you are so precious to Him that no one else’s opinion or acceptance is as important as His. Your life will change phenomenally!

Medications for anxiety and depression are completely safe if taken under the guidance and supervision of a psychiatrist. Medications may need to be titrated and changed according to age, tolerability and level of response reached from time to time. Side effects though many may not occur in every person, hence they are to managed individually for every patient. Consult your treating psychiatrist if you feel like facing any side effects.

Exhaling keep the back straight and bend upper body and arms forward from the hips, until arms and forehead touch the floor. The buttocks remain on the heels. Breathing normally remain in this position for a while. Relax the whole body, especially the shoulders, neck and back. Inhaling keep the back straight and raise the upper body and arms. Exhaling return to the starting position. Practice the exercise 3 times in total. Remain bending forward for sometime and consciously perceive the movement of the breath on the spine. 2. Virasana: Sit in Vajrasana. Hands rest on the thighs and the body is relaxed. Bring the left foot beside the right knee with the sole of the foot flat on the floor. Place the left elbow on the left knee and rest the chin in the hand. Right hand rests on the right thigh. Tuck the toes of the right foot under. The right knee remains in contact with the floor.

Dear lybrate-user, You are having depressive symptom currently. You do not need stress for depression to occur. Depression also occur in hypothyroidism, vit b12 and vit D3 deficiency. Get your thyroid test done first. We will plan to start antidepressant medication once we talk to you. You can start brisk walking in morning, maintain your sleep and wakeup time and get yourself involved in small projects like learning new musical instrument or any thing which you like. All of these thing will help you. All d best.

Dear lybrate-user, at your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

Panic and anxiety disorder can be treated effectively with a combination of the right medications along with relaxation and behaviour therapy. Medical causes of such panic episodes also have to be investigated in detail to form the most appropriate management plan. Consult a good psychiatrist in your city with details of your complaints.

Well you are not much older than a teenager right now and these feelings are okay for your age. The only problem is that you, cannot or rather should not, act on them. You have to learn to moderate these impulses and the more you worry about them the more difficult it will be for you to control your libido. However you cannot walk around with a high libido and a somewhat lost control. Indulging in it is what can cause bother. You must go out and socialize and meet more people and mix around with both sexes. In time you will be able to understand and respect girls and not see them as mere sex objects. You will also respect your sexual feeling and know that it has to be used responsibly. Right now vigorous games and sports will channelize a lot of this energy and reduce the urge. Your focus must be on your studies but not at the neglect of other aspects of our personality. If you like you could attend sex education classes and get a more refined idea of relationships with the opposite sex and relish a wholesome contact with them. Your view right now seems too telescopically directed towards their bodies due to the hormonal influences. There is so much more to do with your life at this current moment that this will distract you no end: time and opportunity can be permanently lost. You can have great times later on after achieving good development in your all round personality. Stay focused on the right priorities. You may feel like you have no control but that is all in your head and a primed body.

I am 45 years old male and I keep thinking about my future and imminent death and old age issues. Some times I don't feel that I have not done enough to feel secure. Not many friends and I have almost no social life. Some times I miss my night sleep due to anxiety and it shoots up when I have to travel and stay in a hotel with windows sealed. Because of this I avoided going to US this July.

You are incapacitating yourself. Everybody must be responsible, respectful and functional at all times to remain healthy as a personality. And the beauty is that it is never too late for anything. Go out and socialize. Being a recluse will on give you time to entertain negative thoughts and develop anxiety. This is no way to live life. We are social animals, gregarious by nature and we need each other. In that​ context, we need to develop until we become interdependent.
