I am 22 year old and I am more addicted for smoking I want to quit smoking what should I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The best way is to find out about the harmful effects of smoking and tobacco. The knowledge itself helps keep the intention to stop active. But as you know that is not enough but it does have a telling effect. I remember that in the early nineties, we knew that smoking was reducing by 1% annually in the West while it was growing by 2% in India, all because of the awareness created by various agencies in the developed countries. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you stay out of it. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. And one of its effects is to affect the erectile capacity of your penis. There are more than 4000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke!!! Then you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start 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, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may 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.

My son, age 4 yrs, can not speak but to gain attraction he usually cried out very loud. We consult ENT and did several tests like beta, tympanometry and audiometry. One doctor recommend cochlear implant, Another told to go for hearing aid. After various test the people who sell hearing aid are now demanding to deposit 60000 cash as security deposit for the hearing aid. Is this necessary? Can anybody help what should we do?

Ph.D
Audiologist, Bangalore
You have to pay for hearing aids. Free hearing aids are available only in some Government projects like ADIP in selected institutes. But quality of devices not assured. If hearing aids doesn't help, you may try cochlear implants. However, in spite of these amplification devices, auditory training and speech therapy decides the successful treatment.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. 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.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I want to know what is depression
please suggest me a good doctor to remove this disease.?
Depression: an illness that involves the body, mood, and thoughts and that affects the way a person eats, sleeps, feels about himself or herself, and thinks about things. Depression is not the same as a passing blue mood. It is not a sign of personal weakness or a condition that can be wished away. People with depression cannot merely'pull themselves together' and get better. Without treatment, symptoms can last for weeks, months, or years. Appropriate treatment, however, can help most people with depression. The signs and symptoms of depression include loss of interest in activities that were once interesting or enjoyable, including sex; loss of appetite, with weight loss, or overeating, with weight gain; loss of emotional expression (flat affect); a persistently sad, anxious, or empty mood; feelings of hopelessness, pessimism, guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness; social withdrawal; unusual fatigue, low energy level, a feeling of being slowed down; sleep disturbance and insomnia, early-morning awakening or oversleeping; trouble concentrating, remembering, or making decisions; unusual restlessness or irritability; persistent physical problems such as headaches, digestive disorders, or chronic pain that do not respond to treatment, and thoughts of death or suicide or suicide attempts. The principal types of depression are called major depression, dysthymia, and bipolar disease (manic-depressive disease). For personal advice you can ask privately.

Acute memory loss can be due to various reason but probably it may also happen you might be occupied and absorbed in any thoughts leading to skip of things and if not this then you need to practice meditation and opt for a better sleep and regular morning walk / exercise for better oxygenation and circulation. However you need to rx kali phos 3x three tabs once daily in afternoon for a weeks time and consult back.

Good Morning ~ It is not unusual in south INDIA for men to get married to their cousins (i.e. Your maternal uncles daughter or your paternal aunts daughter), however a relationship between you and your cousin sister (i.e. Your maternal aunts daughter and your paternal uncles son) are forbidden in south INDIAn HINDU culture. If you believe that you can fit into these cultural traditions I recommend that you consult your elders in the family for the same. I hope you feel better with the solution to your problems. If you continue to have any issues or questions, please let me know.

Some people find it difficult to see blood and the sight of blood induces some kind of emotional distress in them. In your case after seeing blood you fainted, so in a way, it is your body's defence mechanism that has worked for you to save you from that emotional distress after seeing blood. This is not a very serious matter. But in life, you will have situations where you might have to see blood and act courageously. Hence, to get rid of this sort of blood phobia you can talk to a counsellor who by using different therapies will help you to manage your fear of blood.

Hi! I am a 33 years old married woman. I have got married before 3 years almost. My husband loves me a lot. He is very loyal to me. But if he do a small thing against my wish I got angry on him while I know its wrong and I increase that matter so much that my husband hurts by this. Every Time its my mistake. I want to control myself but I can not. I am helpless at this issue. I know I am wrong but I do that wrong and after that I feel guilt and deep down in my heart. But it was too late to resolve it. I think its a sycho problem. Pls help me out. I do not have any otherdisease. I am working woman and satisfied with my job.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
It appears that you have become very possessive about your husband. It also appears to me that he is taking all this because he loves you a lot. Next time something like this happens, and if you don't like something he has done, then instead of getting angry, try to tell him openly that you don't like it and also give him a chance to explain his view about it. It may not be very easy for you to change your behaviour but you need to try hard. Otherwise, after some time, your husband will start giving it back to you and then you will repent. Please remember that, if you want to have a healthy and loving relationship you need to be flexible. You cannot be dictating all the time. If you try to have things your way, all the time, you are sure to this harm your relationship. So please be very careful. If you wish, please talk to a counsellor who will help you to understand your feelings and will also help you to manage these feelings. Take care.

4 Practical Steps To Combat Anxiety

Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Margao
4 Practical Steps To Combat Anxiety
Here are my eight tips for reducing anxiety:

1. Take a moment to breathe.

Anxiety can cause us to clench our muscles and hold our breath, thus depleting our bodies of calming oxygen. Take three-to-five intentional deep breaths. Focusing your attention on the inhale and exhale can help calm nerves, relax your muscles and provide a helpful timeout to regroup.

2. Free write.

In anxiety-provoking situations, you might feel out of control and thus try to control every little detail until it makes you crazy. Rather than act on the fly or do or say something you might regret, try to instead jot your thoughts down on paper. Free writing can help you release some of the tension tied to the situation and help you gain valuable clarity to regain composure.

3. Take a physical time out.

Take a 10-minute timeout from the activity or situation. Whether you're strolling up your locality with the wind in your hair, or sitting in a quiet space, taking time to yourself can provide a welcome distraction and let your body and mind regroup.

4. Remember, "qué será, será!"

"What will be, will be." It seems like the times in life when I've tried to control circumstances the most is when things did not go my way. Take a few steps back and remember that time heals, and can give you the clarity needed to act with integrity. Realize also that not everything is in our control and some things need to work themselves out naturally.

I came across a article of a news paper by a doctor about cyclothymia and found the same symptoms I am going through....
Cyclothymia as you now know , is a condition where a person has fluctuating highs and lows. If we were to be critical about ourselves , most of us would fall in this category. The issue is not so much about labeling ourselves, as it is to make the best of what we have. When you are 'high' it means you are energetic, alert and most productive. Utilize this phase to finish things that you always wanted to do - plan, execute and feel nice about your accomplishment. 'Lows' means your energy level is low, don't particularly feel like doing anything. Enjoy this state, without guilt, relax and use this period to rejuvenate. No one can perform at the same level everyday - every day is a different day. Study your energy patterns and plan accordingly.

I want to concentrate on my study but usually my mind divert to cricket, politics. What should I do?

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 ,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. Take care.

I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself the time please help me.
You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints. There are stages in grief shock, denial, acceptance, bargaining, depression, resolution. If the depressed mood is very much, consult a psychiatrist and take a course of antidepressants. The recovery will be hastened.

Laughing without any appropriate reason for it is never normal. But instead of speculating things in general, it is advisable that you consult a psychiatrist nearby with your family member so as to have an objective evaluation of your complaints. You may contact me online for any further queries or assiatance.
