Hii I am 16 years old I hve became chainsmoker day by day can you help to stop.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine.

Lybrate-user, people seldom change, it applies to you, & to your wife as well. Though it sounds irrational that she takes loan without a proper cause, but that is how it is. She seems to be a loan freak. You should enter her shoes and show interest in loans, borrowing etc and try her to change her loans to'reasonable" stuff. Like education, jewelry, property etc for eg. Lets close this loan and lets us buy some gold/house. She will change when & if she has to, putting more pressure will only make her rigid and more secretive in her transactions. Good luck.

How to increase concentration.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storing and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Post a private question to me and I shall provide you more tips. Take care.

You must visit a counselor and I am certain you may be asked to see a doctor too, for these conditions are rather indicative. Being in late adolescence will also be the time for final resolutions to childhood issues and is a good time to get proper help from a professional and resolve this problem. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrateuser. Memory and mind power depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. Your brain stores information according what you perceive and it also depends on past experience. Understanding is the key. The more better understand, the more better will be the storage and retention. Once the brain retain it properly and stores in someplace where it can be retrieved easily, the more easy for it to recollect. So the basic step in remembrance is understanding. Make sure you understand whatever you study. There are" effective learning techniques" to help you. Physical exercise, outdoor games, indoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc also play an important part in improving brain power. Include green leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts etc in your daily diet. Make sure to play brain games like sudoku atleast once in a week. All the above, together, contributes to keep your brain sharp and healthy. Take care.

Masturbation is a normal act performed to satisfy one's own sexual desires in absence of another sexual partner. It's very natural for a boy of your age to masturbate and there is nothing to be anxious about. Our testis produces sperms and this process takes few weeks. Whenever one is not masturbating, these sperms (as semen) will automatically get discharged which one feels as wet dreams at night. Hence discharging them regularly by masturbation is not bad. BUT doing it regularly though not bad can evoke anxiety in you as you r having. You better spend your time with anything productive work. And definately masturbate sometimes.

I am 49 year old. For the past 6 months whatever the time I go to bed, I will wake up in 2 to 3 hours time and will get sleep only after 2 ~ 3 hours from the woke up time. While I was waking up, by that time I was having some kind of dream which creates the fear in my mind, makes me become aware of that (Brain wakes up). Could you please suggest How to overcome this and have normal sleep. Really this makes me become negative and now a days I am always getting the negative thoughts in my mind. Because of all these things, I am unable to do what I am supposed to do in professional life.

Well. You may be in chronic stress disorder. The sources of stress may be arising from your profession, family burdens and also from social issues which can exert pressure on your mind leading to such sleep disorders. If your blood sugar, cholesterol, hemoglobin and thyroid hormone levels are normal, you are in need of psychological counseling. You can work out your bottled-up emotions to a good friend and also your well wisher, which can help you ventilate your emotions to a certain extent.

Dear lybrate-user. If you use stress relief tablets along with ganja, alcohol and cigarettes, the tablets will not work as desired. Secondly ganja and alcohol always worsen the stress situation and resultant reaction. I suggest you to quit ganja, alcohol and cigarette. Please. Take care.

General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Dear, nervous breakdown is not critical and people who suffer from it will show some anxiety depression symptoms for some time. Aged people will show more of those symptoms. It is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I will help you. Please post a private question to me with all the details. Take care.

Your friend might be having some psychiatric illness or it may be his personality. He may have benefit with psychiatric consultation. However it will be a tough job to get him agree for psychiatric assessment as these kind of persons usually think themselves absolutely fine. They do not ever realize that their doubts are useless and not based on facts. Psychiatric medicines and psychotherapy may change his thinking pattern and thus make him fine.

My son who is 16 years now is stammering on and off. I could find initially that he used to stammer when he is under tension with exam or stress in the school or with friends. Now this stammering is slightly increased and it happens on and off. Please Dr. So what should I do?

Dear Shrividya, Welcome to lybrate. Stammering is "speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or "say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses". Stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is Vocal cord misalignment. Second is Psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ENT Specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ENT specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, You should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.

Sir I am suffering from homosexuality pls give me any solution to avoid boys and I want feelings on girl s.
Since you are young, do not be fooled by the orientation right away. At this age and due to many factors both environmentally and naturally, you could be driven into a choice that appears natural but is only in that guise to distract you from what is suppressed. So wait for some time and see if this is your true leaning and then you can pursue it. Talk to a sexologist too and get the full understanding of sex and sexuality; which is physical primarily for the former and the latter incorporates femininity and masculinity. There are some beautiful subtleties that need to be grasped and when you are in the full know of these aspects, your decision could be in the right perspective. There are many factors that may have influenced this gay mindset. It could be due to genetic factors; mixed parenting roles between mother and father; an over-bearing father/mother; you may have cultivated the drive when we are all in that phase between 7 years to 14 years when we tend towards homosexual contacts with our peers as a social adaptation; You may have had gay exposure at some time in your life; you may have had too much of male exposure during a considerable part of your life; You could have cultivated more of anima than animus and vice versa depending on the role you have identified with; and it may happen because of some social development when you may have found it easier to relate to boys than to girls. These are some of the reasons that I can think of right now. If you do not like it, don’t just resist it because that will make you want it more. Instead talk to a sexologist and understand these orientations and get some education on sex and sexuality to know what your urges are all about. Then he could propose some measures to take to cultivate your heterosexual drives instead. In the meantime, do spend time with girls and learn to enjoy their company and to respect them overall. If you indulge in the thought of your attraction towards boys it will trouble you no end. Just let it be there but cultivate healthy relationships with them and spend more time in female company. In time you will be able to appreciate your leanings towards girls more. If you wish you may go for hypnotherapy too.
