Its an old saying. Men offer the term 'Marriage' to have sex and women offer 'Sex' to get married. In a Practical world, all men think about is Sex - not friendship, nor soulmates, nor 3 am friends, nor acquaintences, nor brother-like person, nor wellwisher, nor family friend. I simply fail to understand, why women donot understand this basic practical rule followed by men. And then women cry wolf. Go to a Psychiatrist or a psychotherapist to get assessed and or counseling regarding practical life situations

Hi I regularly chew tobbaco. I want to quit this habit. But I fear that if I quit suddenly I may get health problem. Please guide me.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
Quitting tobacco is easy if you take help. No health issues will happen if you stop suddenly, but there will be withdrawal symptoms which will be troublesome for 2- 3weeks. You can try nicotine gums to relive the withdrawal symptoms. Consult me in private so that I can help you further.

It may take years to get the problem solved by medicines but may take 2-3 months by surgical procedures in which they will relive the fibrosis at temporomandibular joint causing restrictions in opening mouth. The surgical treatment may cost you about 20,000 Rs by an cosmetic ENT surgeon.

Dear , this is not a problem of your workman ship or talent. Your company cannot afford you and therefore, they told you to quit. They gave you just a reason. That reason does not mean that you are not talented. There are many opportunities in front of you. In fact for your experience, you should get another job which pays more. Please do not dwell in past. Your past company do not deserve you. Also god wants you to work for more salary and in good atmosphere. Think positive. I want to talk to you. Please contact me and I will help you out of this situation. Take care.

Smoking 3 Cigarettes A Day - Know What Happens When You Do It!

Smoking 3 Cigarettes A Day - Know What Happens When You Do It!

Smoking can cause irreparable damage to your mind and body. Chemicals in the tobacco travel to all parts of the body, leaving no area unaffected. According to available data, smoking causes 30% of all cancer deaths and about 80% deaths from emphysema and bronchitis. In addition to adversely affecting yourself, smoking also has a severe impact on your near and dear ones. According to WHO, about 600,000 people die every year from passive smoking. Out of the deaths that occur due to this, 1/3rd is that of children.

The Indian situation
While 85% of tobacco users worldwide consume it in the form of cigarettes, in India only 13% use it in that form. Additionally, 54% use it in the form of beedis. A study conducted on Indian smokers has revealed that an average of 8.2 cigarettes is smoked by an individual daily.

The study also revealed that the number of cigarettes smoked every year had grown to over 6 trillion. While 1 out of 10 adults dies from tobacco use worldwide, 5% of deaths in women and 20% of deaths in men in India are caused by cigarette and beedi smoking.

What happens when you smoke?
Cigarette smoke is made up of 4000 chemicals that are present either as tiny particles or gases and about 50 are known to lead to cancer, the toxin nicotine being one of them. In addition to nicotine, the chemicals that make up cigarette smoke also include tar and carbon monoxide. Prolonged exposure to these toxins can hamper your body's ability to filter air and clean the lungs. The smoke not only irritates the lungs but also causes excess production of mucus.

It also causes a paralysis of the tiny hair-like structures like cilia that line the airways and are responsible for removing dust and dirt from the organ. Paralysis of these hair-like structures also causes a buildup of mucus and toxic substances, leading to lung congestion. The extra mucus that is produced causes smokers to suffer from the very ubiquitous smoker's cough and chronic bronchitis.

It's also one of the many triggers of asthma, which brings about the narrowing and inflammation of the airways. Long-term exposure to tobacco smoke causes the destruction of the structure of the lung, walls of the airways as well as lung tissue. The result is a condition known as emphysema. Additionally, smoking also leads to cancer of the lung and over 80% lung cancer cases occur due to this habit.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am having memory lose and low memory so I can't remember some thing. So in exams my memory was emty.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Good Morning, Medication treatment for depression needs to be intensively monitored and the dose titrated up for optimal outcomes and therefore you need to visit with your psychiatrist when she needs to be seen by one. Also your mother may need an increase in the dose of medications and therefore you may need to contact your psychiatrist as soon as possible.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.
