You daily routine feels to you boredom. You thoughts are enemy to you. No enemy to you. You are not searching for new things in life. You alone thinking yourself all aspects which is not relevant to you. Then you negative thoughts that disturbs your life. I think you are maintaining distance from others. No close friends alone you are thinking yourself and trouble yourself. Man is a social animal. Every day we have some negative thoughts to us. That we have share others. Then we get relief. Thinking alone is not good. Better to share your inner thoughts and internal frustration to your close friends and family friends. Then will advice you and guide you. We cannt do alone everything. We need always others support in all aspects. Not direct help. Indirectly they will give much relief to our life situations. So better to share your thoughts to others. Do not think unrelated aspects. Read always positive thoughts books. That will change your thought process. Think and express positive thoughts. Your mind is also think like that. So, be positive always. Be friendly and be sociable. All the best. My best you will come out from this status very soon. God bless you.

My friend suffering from weight loss. He smoke min 3 cigarettes a day. Is smoking is reason for weight loss.
Smoking cessation can lead to weight gain due to increased appetite. it may be causing weight loss though there may be other factors involved. Find out what is the cause of smoking & try to counsel him to quit it not just because its bad for his health but also as it affects people around him (including loved ones) and reduces his years of life. Additionally the amount spent on cigarettes if saved, can be used for much better purposes. If required you may take professional help for your friend.

Hi there ~ Recommended foods in diabetes: Make your calories count with these nutritious foods: Healthy carbohydrates. During digestion, sugars (simple carbohydrates) and starches (complex carbohydrates) break down into blood glucose. Focus on the healthiest carbohydrates, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes (beans, peas and lentils) and low-fat dairy products. Fiber-rich foods. Dietary fiber includes all parts of plant foods that your body can't digest or absorb. Fiber can decrease the risk of heart disease and help control blood sugar levels. Foods high in fiber include vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes (beans, peas and lentils), whole-wheat flour and wheat bran. Heart-healthy fish. Eat heart-healthy fish at least twice a week. Fish can be a good alternative to high-fat meats. For example, cod, tuna and halibut have less total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol than do meat and poultry. Fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna, sardines and bluefish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which promote heart health by lowering blood fats called triglycerides. However, avoid fried fish and fish with high levels of mercury, such as tilefish, swordfish and king mackerel.'Good' fats. Foods containing monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats — such as avocados, almonds, pecans, walnuts, olives, and canola, olive and peanut oils — can help lower your cholesterol levels. Eat them sparingly, however, as all fats are high in calories. Foods to avoid Diabetes increases your risk of heart disease and stroke by accelerating the development of clogged and hardened arteries. Foods containing the following can work against your goal of a heart-healthy diet. Saturated fats. High-fat dairy products and animal proteins such as beef, hot dogs, sausage and bacon contain saturated fats. Get no more than 7 percent of your daily calories from saturated fat. Trans fats. These types of fats are found in processed snacks, baked goods, shortening and stick margarines and should be avoided completely. Cholesterol. Sources of cholesterol include high-fat dairy products and high-fat animal proteins, egg yolks, shellfish, liver, and other organ meats. Aim for no more than 300 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol a day. Sodium. Aim for less than 2, 300 mg of sodium a day. Take the help of a nutritionist if you feel like the above was helpful but you need more support. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely da

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tambaqu addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

You need to meet with a doctor to get a prescription for medicines to aid in smoking cessation. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Dear, quitting smoking is tricky but is very easy task. There are several methods in psychotherapy to quit smoking. Initially you need to show will power which we will impart through motivation therapy and mind power building therapy. Then slowly you learn to adjust yourself with the non-smoking regime. It will take time, but will be a success. Consult me for more online therapy and counseling. Take care.

While guilt has a function of guiding a person to act within acceptable limits of social conduct, excessive guilt can be very harmful and corrode a persons self confidence and self esteem. Since you did not mention any particular incident, I will just enumerate some tips for your consideration: 1. Guilt occurs when you have done something unfair and objectionable to another person. That time your conscience and morals will make you feel guilty. Now, here you need to see if you are doing the same action repeatedly and not learning from your mistakes. Its a good time to take stock and learn from your mistakes and not repeat hurtful behaviors. 2. Is the other person being too demanding of you and you can not do what they want you to do? well, its time to stand up for what you can or want to do, because you too have a choice, limitations etc. So actually theres no need to feel guilty here. 3. Do you take on too many responsibilities and end up not acting on them. Its time to prioritize what you want to do and what you must do. More planning and organizing means lesser guilt. 4. Are you someone who procrastinates often and then feel guilty of not doing it on time? maybe its time to work through your laziness and look at reasons why you procrastinate and become proactive. Feeling guilty about it will take you nowhere. If this is not what you are looking for, then please send details in private chat and I will help you to increase happiness and reduce guilt factor.

Lybrate-user, depressions are the impressions of our behaviour and it is part of life, but strong hearted and strong minded people come out of such problems very soon. Try to overcome the situation rather that brooding about it and if you work strongly in that direction and try to find out a solution, you will surely succeed but the real thing is to act rather than to sit idle and give it the name depression asking others for a way out whereas you yourself knows the right way.

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

You will need to see a psychiatrist and counsellor to determine if you really have depression. Otherwise disappointment in daily life can also feel like depression. You will need to learn thought and emotion management to help you through this phase. Please click on private chat if you have any questions.

To really understand your problem in its totality, is to go back home to your family of origin to trace some of the genesis of your problems. You may ignore all my assessments for want of complete evidence, and that is okay. I am not the world’s perfect diagnostic man, nor do I boast of knowing it all. So feel free to take what appeals and dump the rest in the garbage can. In my opinion, I think that your problem lies in the fear of rejection. This rejection is usually founded in your family of origin, and is somewhat manifest in some descriptions you have given already. This is not to find fault in your parents: they may have done a lot of things with good intentions but may have inadvertently set up rejection. If you go way back, and see if there was any rejection prenatally or postnatally (again all this with intention or without), the child will pick up the sensation or feel like she is not wanted or even rejected. As you can see, I am presuming all this. You will have to give it substance, if you so have the substance. Without reaching to any conclusions, just indulge in this thought to see if there is any semblance of truth to explore it further. Your parents may throw light on this but don’t share too much of what I saying until it has been verified. Also find out, if there was an abortion or miscarriage before or after you were born. Whether you were wanted by both parents at birth. Whether they expected a male child and were disappointed that you were a girl. How long were you breast-fed by mom etc? These will all throw some light on my proposal of rejection, if there is any truth. You must be your best friend but when you want to hurt yourself then it is a sign that you have become your worst enemy. The solution is really very simple: you must accept and love yourself, first. Take all this material and meet with a counselor with your parents and get some help to resolve the rejection. Withdrawn from people will add to the depression: your resolution lies with being and loving people!

It's highly unlikely that you have memory loss. You're probably being forgetful and it's most likely to be due to a preoccupied mind or a disturbed emotional state. You're probably going through a stressful period marked by academic stressors, difficult inter personal relationships, difficult career choices etc. Yes, you can remedy your situation with counseling.
