Hi I am 23 years old. I smoke 1-2 cigarette per day. I want to know that can I smoke everyday?

You are already smoking 1-2 cigarettes every day. So what advice are you looking for? how many ever cigarettes you smoke it is bad for you. And at your age you can easily develop addiction and in time you will be smoking more and more. After it becomes beyond recovery you may want to stop, by which time the damage is already done and it will become very hard (not impossible) to quit.

Hi, I am a regular smoker I have been smoking from last 5 years I guess but yesterday something unusual happened with me as I came home after smoking. I saw blood coming out of my nose is that a serious issue or it happens with everyone?

It is serious and must be investigated to know what is the damage and the likely cause. You have been smoking from the age of 15 years and so the damage for teenagers is more because your nerves were still forming and completing its formation. You have not mentioned the quantity of cigarettes consumed but it is certain to have increased over the years to be in excess. You need to stop smoking immediately and visit the doctor to check on this bleeding.

I am a CA student so I am busy all the day. and I am not able to concentrate on my health. I have gained a lot of weight these days. So can you suggest me a proper meal or any specific diet which will help me in losing my weight as well as which does not effect my concentration power. As I have heard from my friend that dieting makes concentration power low. So can you help me out in this?

Thanks for the query. Lack of concentration is due to lack of nutrients in our diet. It is important to know that just eating two heavy meals a day will not fulfill your nutrient needs. Most often we skip meals especially when at work or in college. We start our day on empty stomach but our work or stress or activity is never reduced. This causes weakness and lack of energy levels. This also leads to weight gain. Food is our source of energy and if you don't eat well as per your needs you are going to get deficient in many nutrients. This deficiency will lead to lack of concentration and fat accumulation. So, start by eating the right foods at the right time. Eat meals at frequent intervals. Smaller meals at regular intervals will help burn fats. Eat a mid meal between each main meal. Avoid junk foods. Include dairy, eggs, nuts, fruits in your meals. This is something you can manage out of home too. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Sleep well.    Exercise at least thrice a week or whenever it is possible for you to manage.

Hi Hiren Its good to know you are looking forward to quit. We usually think willpower is good enough to quit, but after several failed attempts we start doubting our own willpower. Its important that you make the decision with a proper plan at hand and not hastily, so that you feel confident in your ability to stay smokefree. What is your age? What are doing right now? Please come back with answers so that we can make a workable plan for you to quit smoking. ALL THE BEST!!

Follow these simple steps to ensure a good sleep every night and stay away from sleep disorders and other health problems associated with unhealthy sleep habits: 1) maintain a regular sleep routine go to bed at the same time. Wake up at the same time. Ideally, your schedule will remain the same (+/- 20 minutes) every night of the week. A good sleep hygiene routine promotes healthy sleep and daytime alertness. 2) avoid sleeping during the daytime. It can disturb the normal pattern. 3) avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol near bedtime. While alcohol may speed the onset of sleep, it creates problems in he second half of sleep. 4) exercise can promote good sleep. Exercise should be taken in the morning or late afternoon. Yoga, can be done before bed to help. 5) have a quiet, comfortable bedroom. Set your bedroom thermostat at a comfortable temperature. Generally, a little cooler is better than a little warmer. Turn off the tv and other extraneous noise that may disrupt sleep. Background'white noise' like a fan is ok. If your pets awaken you, keep them outside the bedroom. Your bedroom should be dark. Turn off bright lights. Have a comfortable mattress. 6) avoid heavy meals close to bedtime. 7) ensure adequate exposure to natural light. 8) avoid emotionally upsetting conversations and activities before trying to go to sleep. Do not think of, or bring your problems to bed. 9) stop using all your digital devices and stop looking at digital screens be it mobile phones or televisions at least 1 hour before the time you plan to sleep. Instead try reading a fiction book near bedtime so it makes you help relaxed and de-stressed. Sleep well live healthy and live longer.

Hi lybrate-user, so initially everything was fine and suddenly she is feeling stressed because of some reason by her in-laws. First thing that you can do is, go to her place if you are comfortable make her and your brother in law sit with you to work on a solution. Second thing, if everyone is willing after convincing they all can go to psychotherapist for family therapy. But most importantly, here out the reason that you sister feel stressed about, check its reality, crosscheck with husband and every source you get, see if they are silly reasons or really big reasons. Sometimes, after giving birth woman do feel a lot of stress and other symptoms, irritability and aggression to name a few, sometimes they might feel everyone against her which is yet another condition. So you to have carefully rule out each one of this. Get back to me then.

Hi sir/madam, I'm 21. I want to know whether I'm stable or not. I don't know why I'm like this. I don't know whether I'm normal or not. From a long time I'm suffering from extreme emotions. (I can't explain correctly so I'll day some examples how I feel) For example: when I listen to a song and it is based on friendship I recollect when I spend time with friends and I can't control my feeling. I feel like I want to relive in that moment and I feel like I want to run and search for that moment. That feeling is extreme I can't control that sometimes I feel like I want to cry, sometimes I feel like I want to run and find something. And I used to check things again and again. Example: when I try to put bottle cap. And ill check whether I did it properly or not. I know it placed properly but I can not control myself to check it again and again. I think its not rotated properly so I used to rotate and rotate sometimes the cap has broken because to rotating too tight. I'm trying to do things but I can't. Basically when I feel like I want to become like someone I used to think I'm already like them and enjoying with them and I can completely feel that. For example: I like cricket when someone score a hundred I feel like I did that I use to think what I'll do at that time. And completely thinking about it entire the day. And I can't concentrate on things I'm doing. When I saw a aeroplane I feel like I want to be in that aeroplane and somebody in that plane are enjoying I also want to enjoy like them and I can't control myself I want to go and do something to stay there. I'm day dreamer what I do I'm not doing with focus a situation strikes in my mind and use to think of it continuously. And when I try to start a think I fell like I can't do that so I stop doing it (at beginning or in between) When I saw a negative situation I feel that it happened to my and I know its not good I want to divert my mind but I can't do that. I will try to come out from that situation but I can't. I'm afraid to do a things. If I want to study a topic I think like this I didn't listen to that topic in classes. Can I read it and if I listen to class I think I can read well and if a bought video class of that topic when I try to listen I feel I think its not the correct time to study and according to survey we can concentrate for 15 min only this class is for 1 hour can I listen to it. I think I can't listen to it. I feel like this. But once I'm in that I try to do things better. I didn't said about my feelings to anyone till now. Even my patents also don't know it. I'm facing some situations from my childhood I don't know that makes me a person like this. I feel so sad sometimes I want to cry but I didn't do that. I use to keep that feeling inside me. I'm not living life that I like. From pasy 2 days anger increasing in me. I want to break something in that anger but I think it cost to much so I won't break. When I want to discuss something with my parents they say something but I don't like that. I can't do it against to them. I feel like I'm dying in that problem. And I'm thinking now that I can't spend time with my family because they won't understand me so I'll be alone I like my mother a lot (my father will not do any work my mom take care of me andsisterfrom our childhood) when I try to say something I like and I want to do it she says we can't to that because of financial problem and even though when I show interest to that my mom says you are selfish you don't understand others. But the truth is I always understand others but others don't. I want to do things I like but I don't do that because I know my parents can't afford it and kill my though I'm understanding them but they says I'm not understanding them. My father don't do any work and make us trouble. I feel I'll be like him. Please help me I don't want to live like this and bcoz of text restrictions I can't say totally. Thank you.

Hi lybrate-user, Seems there are some personality issues apart from that you may have obsessive compulsive disorder which is quite evident from what you described however it will be confirmed once all the symptoms and case details are taken. Don't worry its completely curable, consult a psychologist for therapy and psychiatrist for medication. You will need exposure and response therapy in this problem. You will get better soon. Practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. All the best.

There is n point in attaching yourself to the results until they come. You are living too much in the future. Secondly, whatever has happened has happened: your worrying is not going to change anything but it can only disturb your present and future. Learn to detach from these results and throw yourself into some healthy living: eat well, sleep well and exercise well.

Dear sir, My brother is about 28 year old and resides in Agra. His pronunciation in not clear. (भरी भरी आवाज़ हे |) he sounds high and unclear words. Sometimes he mixes the words,(means speaks with high speed / frequency). In childhood he suffered with thyroid. We have given him full treatment for that. What should we do to make his voice clear, sharp and like a normal person? Is there are any clinics or doctors in AGRA who help him in practice speaking? Please advice.

You may be suffering from anxiety. Your body is simply reacting to your mental anxiety. Don't worry about the fast heart rate. You need therapy to control the mental anxiety. If your fear is limited to social situations then it could be social phobia. There are medicines available for it. There are many behavior and cognitive therapies also available that can teach you to control your reactions in a public situation. For a start you can try to learn controlled breathing when you are alone. Then practice the same in a social situation. If you are able to keep your breathing slow and steady, your heart rate will normalize. Once that happens, your mind will relax.
