Strong determination is the only way to get rid of the habbit. Occupy you mind and divert the mind to something else which you like very much to get over the urge for the ghutka.

Doctors my ICSE boards examinations are only 20 days far from now, but I have not learn any thing, so please guide me how can I concentrate in my studies? Please.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
I am not sure what you mean by" not learnt anything" actually you have not studied or is it your anxiety which makes you say that you have not learnt anything. Well, in 20 days, you will need to cover a lot of content which means that all kinds of distraction like computer, mobile, tv, friends will take a back seat and you will focus your attention on your studies, small periods of relaxation, eating and sleeping. You will need to organise your time in such a manner that you are able to give ample time to important portions to study. If you want to leave out unimportant portions, then do so. Walking and loudly repeating what you have learnt helps to retain for longer. Make points and elaborate in your mind. Use a highlighter to mark out important portions. Use mnemonics and abbreviations like vibgyor to help retain portions faster. Using all senses to learn portion helps immensely. You can attach a mental image, smell, music or color to various things to access it faster while reproducing content in the exams. Reduce junk foood to minimum and eat only brain healthy food to increase focus, retention and reproduction. Exercise everyday to improve blood circulation and mental alertness.

Hi lybrate-user, there may or may not be a problem with you, I can not judge you by few lines that you have written. It could be that you are shy and introvert but you need affection also, so what happens you expect other people to be around and give you attention which you enjoy but may be in return you are not able to give them that much, so your efforts are not very evident and it may give impression to others that you are not trying or not interested but you are its just your personality is introverted im sure the right people stay in your life. Consult with me for counseling and therapy.

I was a heavy smoker. And I used to smoke average 6 cigarettes daily. From last one month I haven't smoked .i know disadvantages of smoking. But sometimes it seems to me that I need cigarette.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

You seem to be having a depressive episode. The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches General medical conditions and substances causing depression also needs to be ruled out. Consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Hello, I can understand your pain at losing one very important person in life. You probably had hopes of spending long time with her and had plans for the future and now nothing is going to happen. All these thoughts might be causing you sadness, disappointment and some anxiety and anger on the other hand. While it's important to be an important part of someone else's life, yet it's also important to know when to call it off if it's not working anymore. 1. At this age it is common for boys and girls to get attracted to each other and spent some time together. But equally common is breakups when one or both see that their needs are too different now and the other person will not fit the requirements any more. While this process is very heart breaking, but it is also important so that you can meet different people and see who is your kind of person and who will help you in the next phase of life ie. Job, marriage children. 2. By going through different relationships you will also understand yourself better and discover many hidden qualities and weaknesses in you. It's your growing edge to work through your weaknesses and sharpen your qualities. You will also discover your passion, dreams and hobbies and interests. 3. I suggest that you look at this breakup as a learning lesson and an opportunity to improve on any thing that was your mistake and assess your life choices again. What was meant to go will go. Let it go and you carry on with your journey. 4. Being flexible and independant in relationships is important. There will be times when you might not have any body's support or company. That is the time to learn to be your own friend and give yourself that love which you want from a close friend. This is healthy self love and very important for self confidence and high self esteem. 5. Indulge yourself with meeting new people, going places, discovering your passion, hobbies etc. Spend time alone with yourself to nurture the person within you.

You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear, you must have tried very hard for a long time to keep fit and prevent weight gain. Thats why you are worried about weight gain on trivial basis. Weight loss has a science behind it and weight can not be gained in a fraction of time. You have already activated your metabolism by doing regular exercise to keep you fit and your body needs rest too otherwise thr will be stress and fatigue of muscles which may injure you. If you have looked carefully, every fitness regime talks about appropriate resting periods for the body to prepare for next exercise and for the changes to take place. There is a reason behind these. Fitness is achieved by following rules and principles refrding how body works. Exercizing too much may not do miracles. You are getting obsessed about weight loss thats why you worry too much. Do not fovus on irrelevant worries that your mind throws at you. Believe in your efforts. Fitness is not only achieved but maintained for long periods too. So make exercise a part of your lifestyle instead of a one time activity. Then you will develop a lighter attitude towards fitness. Rather than pushing yourself beyond limits.

I have done something wrong with money and now the news is spread to my parents. They are reacting hard what shall I do now.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are very young, and obviously did not expect something will go wrong like this. I can imagine you to be in shock. You also might be feeling angry and hopeless. I guess, you did not have any bad intentions, and it is a pure mistake of judgement on your part. I can understand your parents' anger. They are angry for two things - first is their hard earned money is lost and second thing is they might be feeling betrayed by you, because you did not tell them about this, earlier. Now, for you - you need to understand that there are natural consequences for everything. So, if you have done something wrong without your parents' knowledge you need to know that the natural consequence would be their anger and loss of trust. And you need to face that. At the same time, they need to understand that at your age, because of lack of experience, such things happen. Hence, they should not be very strict or hard with you. Presently, you may explain to them, what you were thinking and expecting, when you indulged with their money. You need to make them understand, what did you expect to happen and what were your intentions. Then ask for forgivance and at the same time assure them of two things - one is how would you like to earn back that money (have some concrete plans) and how can they have faith in you again. If you are genuinely feeling sorry for what has happened and if you talk to your parents openly, citing your mistake of judgement and commitment to work hard in furture and not to lose their faith again, they will accept you with your mistake. Give them some time. For you, you need to know that you are very young and you need to be cautious in future. At the same time, you are a normal human being. And it is human to make mistakes. Allow yourself to accept this as a mistake and don't keep blaming yourself all the time. Learn from this experience. The bond you have shared with your parents, till now, will help you to come out of this. Be genuine and truthful. Take care.

You may be affected by quitting the regular job where there were timings, targets, structure and a whole lot of things that brings discipline to one's life. Now, with the random schedule, you could be easily disturbed and depressed. However, there are things to be done that will help you out of the depression. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost.
