Proper diet, sufficient sleep and regular exercise is a key to better health. Yoga and pranayam helps a lot to release psychological as well as physical stress.

How does smoking of weed effects in long term and what precocious need to be taken?

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Visakhapatnam
The immediate effects of taking marijuana include rapid heart beat, disorientation, lack of physical coordination, often followed by depression or sleepiness. Some users suffer panic attacks or anxiety. But the problem does not end there. According to scientific studies, the active ingredient in cannabis, THC, remains in the body for weeks or even months. Marijuana smoke contains 50% to 70% more cancer-causing substances than tobacco smoke. One major research study reported that a single cannabis joint could cause as much damage to the lungs as up to five regular cigarettes smoked one after another. Long-time joint smokers often suffer from bronchitis, an inflammation of the respiratory tract. The drug can affect more than your physical health. Studies in Australia in 2008 linked years of heavy marijuana use to brain abnormalities. This is backed up by earlier research on the long-term effects of marijuana, which indicate changes in the brain similar to those caused by long-term abuse of other major drugs. And a number of studies have shown a connection between continued marijuana use and psychosis. Marijuana can change the structure of sperm cells, deforming them. Thus even small amounts of marijuana can cause temporary sterility in men. Marijuana use can also disrupt a woman’s menstrual cycle.(29) Studies show that the mental functions of people who have smoked a lot of marijuana tend to be diminished. The THC in cannabis disrupts nerve cells in the brain, affecting memory. Cannabis is one of the few drugs that causes abnormal cell division, which leads to severe hereditary defects. A pregnant woman who regularly smokes marijuana or hashish may give birth prematurely to an undersized, underweight baby. Over the last 10 years many children of marijuana users have been born with reduced initiative and lessened abilities to concentrate and pursue life goals. Studies also suggest that prenatal (before birth) use of the drug may result in birth defects, mental abnormalities and increased risk of leukemia (cancer of the bone marrow) in children.

I am 17 years old student I have not slept well from last two days and now I cannot concentrate on my studies.

M. sc Psychology, BHMS
Homeopath, Hyderabad
Lack of sleep obviously will effect the other biological activities. To get proper concentration over the things/work/studies, mind should be active, which will be active mre by taking good rest. But as since 2 days only, you did not sleep well, try to maintain the proper hrs for sleep, i. E, minimum 7-8-9 hrs/night, if not possible, even in day also, after lunch, you can take nap for 1/2 -1 hr, which will refresh your mind. Try to practice pranayama, yoga, meditation, which will help to boosten the mental ability.

MBBS, DNB Family medicine

Hi Lybrate-user, first thing to stop smoking is to determine yourself to stop. Then slowly you should reduce the number of cigarettes per day and you can use chewable nicotine tablets. If nothing helpful, please meet any psychiatrist. All the best for quitting smoking.

I am looking for a good therapist in Gurgaon for my son. He is seeking help on anger management issues.

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, Positive Psychiatry and Mental Health
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Anger and aggression are emotions. These emotions always arise because of irritation, disappointment or events which were negative and not expected. But you should understand, these are common. You cannot change situations or circumstances. But we can always alter our perception and behavior about what is happening. This the core of anger management. I suggest online anger management training. Take care.

Sir my self manjunath when I'm speaking my words or not correctly pronounced please help me.

Master of Speech Language Pathology
Speech Therapist, Bangalore
Mr. Lybrate-user, I have a clarification to ask from you. When you say words are not correctly pronounced is it one of the following? 1. Getting stuck while saying a word and something like stammering while saying name, speaking to strangers etc. 2. Saying a different sound instead of correct sound like saying" tar" for" car" differentiation is important as the above two are different conditions but when many explain, it seems as same. Please clarify. Thank you.

Do living alone outside of city and in a non social environment increases anxiety. Please advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Do living alone outside of city and in a non social environment increases anxiety. Please advise.
To some extent you are right but not completely. You already have so many fear related problems and those can be aggravated by this type of social isolation. Remember we are all social animals, gregarious by nature and need each other. We live in an interdependent manner with other people. When we do not have socializing opportunities, we can be under some stress. The final test of a personality is always in a social context, so there will be no opportunity for that and the isolation can be rather stressful. You are also at an age when this will matter a lot and you need to find a resolution to your other anxiety problems to feel better. Deal with your fear with a counselor and a lot of your problems will reduce in size. Do not depend only on medication alone: combine it with therapy too.

Sir, A case of love failure. I loved a girl but she likes someone else. Depression has been mine regular thing. I feel like to commit suicide. Does consulting a psychiatrist helps me out of the situation?

Sir, A case of love failure. I loved a girl but she likes someone else. Depression has been mine regular thing. I fee...
Hi lybrate-user, at this age these incidences are very common. Love is a broader term; the one who is made for you will meet you at proper time but you have to wait for that golden opportunity. To commit suicide is a weird and most condemnable thing to do. One should not even think of it. Your parents and family members love you a lot and please think of all those who love you not due to your education or looks but just as you are. Be you and feel special. Always try to improve yourself as a person, and compete with yourself. Learn from your past mistakes and always focus on the good things that you have achieved in your life instead of looking on what bad things have happened with you. You have to take charge of your happiness. Is your happiness so cheap that a lady or a gentleman can ruin it completely? Rather be special and setup an example for people and pear group. Make your presence special, make your smile special, make your guesture and posture special, in short love yourself. Your present problem states that you are not in love with yourself, that's why you feel in negative way. Now answer honestly who would purchase stale bread? Obviously no one. Similarly, think who would love a guy who doesn't love himself? So I think you got your answer, be brave. Babies don't leave walking due to fear of falling, we don't leave driving due to fear of accidents then why shall we feel negative in life. It happens Nikhil, believe me life is a suspense and I am sure you need to prove yourself. I am pretty sure you would make any girl feel special but that lady is not so special to deserve your love. Please do not waste your energy and divert it into some positive aspects so that your energy may bring light in many lives. Definitely, You should consult a psychiatrist for channelising your negative energy into positive energy and make you feel special. :)

Health Effects of Smoking 3 Cigarettes A Day!

MD - Pulmonary, DTCD
Pulmonologist, Faridabad
Health Effects of Smoking 3 Cigarettes A Day!

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. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pulmonologist.

I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all 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. Try to get away from loneliness and meet other friends or relatives.
