I couldn't concentrate on my studies. Since last two years I have been suffering from depression. I feel like I have no purpose to live. Two years ago My boyfriend defamed me in front of my friend and family. Due to which everyone behavior towards me changed. I feel like suffocating. I trusted my boyfriend a lot and I loved him like mad. But everything was spoiled by him. I am totally shattered and unable to concentrate on anything I keep on thinking about all those. I am a CA student an my exams are approaching n am unable to concentrate on my studies. Although two years passed but yet its bothering me please suggest me what to do. I will be thankful to you.
Few days ago I left my car open, near the roadside, slept all night, and when the other day realised, there's no car key in the house, I looked out and saw my car is open. It was safe, nobody stole it, but I don't know what I was thinking when I left it open. Just so the situation, doesn't prolong, or happen again, I want to make sure am in the right head. I space out on many important things. I don't really know if it's to be blamed on observations or my attention power or what? Please guide me through.

The chronic alcoholic first of all must make a firm resolve stop drinking. One should abstain from alcohol all at once for the habit cannot be got rid of in gradual stages.
The most effective way to treat alcoholism is to build the body's nutritional integrity so as to prevent craving for stimulants like drinks. The patients should be put on a cleansing juice fast for at least 10 days in the beginning. During this period, he should have the juice of an orange every two hours from 8 am. To 8 pm. The juice may be diluted with warm water if desired. If orange juice does not agree, grapes juices may be taken. Each day while fasting, bowels should be cleansed of effete and poisonous matter thrown off by the self- cleansing process set up by the body. This can be achieved by warm water enema.
During the juice fast, the patient will usually feel no craving for alcohol. This will a good 10-day start towards breaking the drinking habit and would help remove not only the physical dependence but also the psychological factors. After the initial fast on juices, the optimum diet of vital nutrients is essential. Such a diet should consist of whole grains, cereals, nuts, seeds and sprouts, fresh fruits and vegetable.
It is advisable that in the beginning of the treatment, the patient is given a suitable substitute to relieve the craving if and when such a craving occurs. The best substitute drink for alcohol is a glass of fresh fruit juice, sweetened with honey if desired. In the alternative, wholesome candy may be taken. The patient should always have easily available juice, candy or other snacks to be taken between meals if he feels a craving for a stimulant.
All refined foods such as sugar, white rice, macaroni products and white flour and meat should be avoided. The patient should eat several small, meals a day in preference to two or three large once and avoid strong condiments such as pepper, mustard and chilly. He should not smoke as this will only increase his desire for alcohol.
Apples are considered valuable in the treatment of alcoholism as there, use removes intoxication and reduces the craving for wines and other intoxication liquors. The raw celery juice is also considered useful. It has a sobering effect and is an antidote to alcohol.
In addition to proper nutrition, plenty of rest and outdoor exercise are necessary. The healthy condition of the appetite center, which controls the craving for alcohol is improved by exercise. Yogic asans for general health such as padmasan, vajrasan, vakrasan, paschimotanasan, yoga mudra, bhujangasan, halasan and shalabhasana, and yogic kriyas like jalneti, kunjal and simple pranayamas like kapalbhati, anuloma-viloma, shitali and sitkari will be beneficial.
Copious drinking of water, hot fomentations on the stomach and abdomen with a wet girdle pack between application are also effective water treatments for alcoholism.
And finally, it will be advisable to follow the ten commandments to prevent alcoholism. These are:
Never drink when you 'need one':
Space your drinks, taking a second drink 30 minutes after the first and a third an hour after the second; dilute your alcohol;
Keep an accurate and truthful record of the amount and number of drinks you take;
Never conceal the amount of alcohol you drink;
Do not drink on an empty stomach;
Stop drinking on 'signal' (signals are lunch, dinner, fatigue, sex stimulation, boredom, frustration and bedtime);
Make it a rule never to take a drink to escape discomfort-either physical or mental; and never, never take a drink in the morning thinking it will cure a hangover.
