I am 32 years old male and I have problem that I am drug addict and I am using trominal extra tablets in drug what can I do for stop this all.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
First of all I must congratulate you for seeking help. Your willingness to address the problem is the first and very important step. I would suggest you to contact someone and work with them. An addiction expert or a counselor close to you, it you work with someone in your own city that will be best. Seeing some one on a weekly basis will help you maintain motivation and support that you need. It is important for you to remember that you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how your life will change for good once you are addiction free. Write this statement with in a present tense and with positive statements. The more you bring out your emotions and connect with these positive emotions the more strength to change you will gather. If you have any specific question feel free to contact me personally. Hope this helps, wishing you very best,

I have 10 years work exp, had planned to start a business but investors ditched. Now it' s been a year I am not able to find a job. Sometime I feel worthless. I was at a senior post, but now no one wants me. I am not getting any job. It' s become a hell living like this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I think the first mistake you made was to quit your job without checking whether investors are interested to put in money. Now the deed or misdeed is done and we need to look at how to get on with life. There may be a problem with the business idea you floated for investors not to pitch in. So my request is to abandon the idea and seek an alternative. There are so many online job sites that are flooded with job offers, quite regularly. Please register with all of them. It does not help if you are unemployed for over a year. Nevertheless, you must apply and keep persevering. There are other network opportunities that is worth considering and involves initial investment that can be recovered very fast and you can earn more and above, if you work sincerely. It does not require any qualification or experience. Yet it is very remunerative if you have a sincere commitment and can put in a few hours of time and hard work. If you are interested, you can contact me for further details.

Stop thinking too much of exams and results. Instead make a plan for study according to time left and your portion of study left. Accordingly divide your study into small related units and start finishing them. Be contented if you complete about 80% of your schedules portions - Eat healthy, relax in between study sessions and have good sleep at night.

Hi. I don't know why, I always get negative thoughts first. But people always tell that thinking positive will get positive results. Even though I don't think either in negative or positive way. But one thing is real that am not growing in my career as good as I think. Does my way of thinking is or do I really suffer from any depressive symptoms. Sometimes even I couldn't even participate in sex because of some stress. Kindly suggest me.

Hi lybrate-user! You need to undergo treatment for overcoming your negative thoughts bcoz you have already tried ways, but you are not able to overcome right, then definitely you need some assistance and guidance who would help you overcome this problem. You have a stressful job I feel, definitely reason also does its part in your negative thoughts as well as your sexual interest. You need to actually find out what job you are into, is there job satisfaction, if not you need to find out more suitable job for you. When things goes well, definitely you want get negative thoughts. When you are having some personal, family or cafree problem, then definitely you will end with negative thoughts. Try to join Gym to become more active, which would help you overcome this problem. If you need further assistance feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me when you find difficulty to manage. Take Care. Be active. With regards

Dear anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety.

Different Ways to Boost Women's Health

Diploma in Nutrition
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Secunderabad
Different Ways to Boost Women's Health

Women's health concerns are a little different from those of men. If you're a woman, these tips will soon have you feeling fit and energetic. 

Eat a healthy diet: you want to eat as close to a natural foods diet as you can, that means a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables and fewer processed foods. Eat whole grains and high-fiber foods and choose leaner cuts of meat, fish, and poultry. Include low-fat dairy products in your diet as well - depending on your age, you need between 800 and 1, 500 milligrams of calcium daily to help avoid osteoporosis. Avoid foods and beverages that are high in calories, sugar, salt, and fat.

Apple cider vinegar in water is the best way to start your day. This bitter drink helps to stimulate the stomach's digestive juices, to help with food digestion. Try taking two teaspoons in water 10 minutes before breakfast.

Healthy eating will help you maintain a proper weight for your height, which is important because being overweight can lead to a number of illnesses. Try some raw vegetables, such as celery, carrots, broccoli, cucumbers, or zucchini with a dip made from low-fat yogurt.

Exercise: you want to exercise at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week, if not every day. Aerobic exercises (walking, swimming, jogging, bicycling, dancing) are good for women's health in general and especially for your heart

Manage stress: no matter what stage of her life - daughter, mother, grandmother - a woman often wears many hats and deals with a lot of pressure and stress. Take a few minutes every day just to relax and get your perspective back again. It doesn't take long, and mental health is important to your physical well-being.' you also can manage stress with exercise, relaxation techniques, or meditation.

Avoid risky habits: stay away from cigarettes and people who smoke. Don't use drugs. If you drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Most women's health studies show that women can safely consume one drink a day

Sometimes it becomes difficult to manage, even the smallest task to handle.

Your memory may be fine, it's your attention that seems to be problematic. Adult adhd (attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder) or add (attention-deficit disorder) are very common and highly under-diagnosed. If your brain doesn't pay proper attention to an information then it cannot retain it. Hence you won't remember it. Other signs are difficulty in planning and organizing, easy distractibility, impulsivity, losing your belongings, mismanaging your time, etc. To get a proper diagnosis however, you need to see a good psychiatrist.

U seem to be having anxiety disorder, kindly consult a psychiatrist and get treated. Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms.

How to decide if you are getting into addiction ?
If you are developing tolerance -the same amount of substance is not able to produce the kick and you are using more amounts of substance. For eg starting with 1 peg of alcohol and reach to a full bottle.
Withdrawal - stopping the drug causes a discomfort in the body which will be reduced by taking the drug. For eg shaking off hand and not able to shortstop on stopping alcohol
Continuing the use in spite of harm to health or social or family problems. Eg having liver problem and taking alcohol. Accident after drunken driving and taking alcohol.

My brother is an alcoholic. I want to know how to go about finding the best course of action for finding a solution to this problem. Thank you.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am very concerned that your brother has not reached what we call, ‘Hitting Rock Bottom’ as yet. To me, his Rock Bottom seems to be death if he is a heavy drinker and is completely sloshed everyday i.e. Only death can stop his addiction! Anyway do not despair as yet and you may attempt the following and see how it works: you may have tried a de-addiction center but he should not have been released if he was not ready. So in this attempt, he may be taken to another de-addiction center that is stricter and will also have follow up treatment and AA meetings for him to compulsorily attend. Ideally, your brother should want to give up alcohol himself to begin with. If not, it is going to be an uphill task and to the most part impossible. However, you should not be in want of trying. If he is unwilling to seek help, he needs to be admitted to a rehabilitation center for at least 6 months by force. If not, there are centers who will come and pick him up when he is drunk, when his resistance will be ineffective. This will require his wife's permission and written consent. After your brother returns from therapy, there will be a lot of follow-ups, both in the house and in his daily activities that must be meticulously adhered to. There is a medicine called Disulfiram, which only the doctor can prescribe, and it is very powerful that even if he attempts to drink a small quantity, he can have serious reactions that may sometimes entail hospitalization. You have to monitor his intake of the medicine and keep a close watch on him. He also has to go for regular counseling for at least three years! Apart from his health, he will also affect the family and all his children will carry genetic factors for alcoholism. If he is into business or working, he will soon not be able to continue and he will go into financial ruin. He will lose all his friends and become ostracized by his society. He will lose his dignity, self-esteem, self-confidence, and become a misfit. He will also lose his sexual capacity, liver function, heart function, kidney etc. These are all elements of the Rock Bottom concept. T will be difficult since he has become addicted to alcohol for some time and has a lot to do. The consumption of Antabuse has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children, and whoever else is there, will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that people are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that you will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Now you should not give up on him but neither should you harass him. Be continuously after him and in the end, you will succeed. His medical condition warrants a very strict course of action. He needs to identify why you needs to drink, and go back into his childhood to find out other influences on his personality that makes him prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet his oral needs with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that he will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional.
