Hii. I am 24 male. How can I quit somoking ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Congrats for your desire to quit smoking. It is now important that you actually do it and persevere with it. When you decide, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since you want to do it I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support. I guess you know all the harm cigarettes do to your system, which is why I suppose you are seeking to quit. But now you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. 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, for a little while. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may 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.

That could turn your energy and focus around and you start enjoying your life more and find happiness and satisfaction. Please book an audio consultation and I will be able to help.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand what you are going through. Remember, its a temporary phase we all go through such stages like break up and we all survive. Committing suicide for someone who is no more there in your life will not serve any purpose anyway its the mot absurd act. Build your career and live for your parents, lot of girls will enter your life do not waste time on past.

Dear, I don't see the risk of amnesia in you at this age. Have you met with any accident or trauma? are you diagnosed with anxiety disorder or depression? busy and anxious people do forget many things, that does not mean they have amnesia. Therefore, usually, busy people keep everything in writing or appoint a personal assistant to help them out. Stress is also another factor behind forgetting. People also forget things which they feel unimportant. Therefore, I think, you do not have anything to worry. Still, if you insist, I can run a series of memory related tests to assess your memory. First screening test will be through mobile. Let me know if you are willing. Take care.

Few visits to a counselor or a psychologist to help him work on his fear should take care of this. He will then have to practice the techniques he learns. Both cbt and other stress management techniques like visualization and relaxation will help. I would also strongly recommend that it is a good idea to also go over his study techniques. If they are not effective then that in itself may cause exam fear. If you address the issue from both the front that will help. If you comfortable working online feel free to consult me. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

My psychiatrist told me that" your social anxiety disorder will cure with in 6 months. Is it true?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Anxiety can be cured even earlier, if you cooperate with the doctor. It is not based on the time but the prescriptions, the simultaneous therapy, the implementation of all the recommendations and your support system while dealing with the condition. Sometimes, patients falsely discontinue the treatment as soon as they feel well. This is not how it works. You need to consistently feel well, which means that it has to be over a significant time and under the guidance of the doctor to finally declare that you are out of anxiety. Of course you will be the best judge, but like I said it must be consistently stable.

Stress: 4 Reasons Why You Should Avoid It for a Better Sex Life

PG Dip (Sexual & Relationship Therapy), MRCPsych, Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Sexologist, Bangalore
Stress: 4 Reasons Why You Should Avoid It for a Better Sex Life

Stress and sex is a bad combination, as it is a well known fact that it is because of stress that a person's love and intimate life often suffers. Listed below are few ways in which stress can affect your sex life:

  1. Negative body image: The hormones associated with stress are capable of affecting your metabolism. If you gain weight or feel sluggish, it makes you feel bad about your own body, which in turn hinders your desire to initiate sex. A lower self-image leads to less amount of sex and in turn, creates relationship problems. One of the main sources of stress can be your relationship; if you cannot nurture it, it might lead to elevation of stress.
  2. Negative effect on libido: Cortisol is a hormone that is produced by stress. It is needed by the body in small doses and over short periods of time. Increase in stress over a period of time results in increased levels of cortisol, which lead to suppression of sex hormones. Lower amount of sex hormones results in lower libido.
  3. Excessive drinking: It is of common knowledge that people drink to relieve stress. Maximum times, increased stress levels lead to excessive drinking. Men have difficulty having erections after they drink too much. In women, excess alcohol causes dehydration, resulting in reduced lubrication. These problems lead to dull sex.
  4. Impact on fertility and Menstrual Cycle: In women, stress affects the pituitary gland, which is responsible for the thyroid, ovaries and adrenal glands. Improper functioning of the ovaries can adversely affect the menstrual cycle. Periods might become irregular or menstruation might stop.

Yes if his aggression is too severe you need to consult a doctor- psychiatrist for medication along with a psychologist for psychotherapy. Anger usually rooted in some other problem, to eliminate that few sessions of counseling will be required. It will help him immensely.

How to concentrate on studies? As my exams are going on I am not getting concentration.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
If your lack of concentration is due to stress then try some relaxation technique couple of times a day. Focusing on your goal in terms of other grades or chievements lso works wonderfully in helping you main't a in your motivation. Also try following things for concentration try following things on a daily basis and you will see positive results. Concentration is a mental skill that you can develop. There are two ways to improve your concentration: first, raise your brain's natural ability to concentrate. In other words, increase your attention. Second, adjust the environment around you to make concentrating easier. To improve your concentration takes a little time and effort, but it can be worth it. In my personal experience with students. This can make noticeable improvement in a relatively short time. Ideas for daily concentration-boosting habits include: mindfulness meditation - many studies confirm that 20 minutes of meditation or more per day improves concentration and attention span. Focusing on your breathing, known as mindfulness meditation, is one of the simplest way of meditation. Start with ten minutes in the morning and ten minutes before bed. Proper sleep -i am sorry to say it. Pulling all nighter will not help with your grade. Unless you are getting sufficient restful sleep, you are not going to be as mentally focused as you could be. Brain game -. The more you use certain skills, the more they are reinforced in the brain. So it makes sense that playing concentration games and games that require you to focus will improve your concentration ability. You need to be consistent in this. Play for about 10 to 20 minutes each day. Have fun, and get the benefits but remember not to spend more than 20 minutes a day. Your goal is to improve your concentration and not the score in the game! eat healthier - your brain needs the proper nutrients to allow you to focus. Eat more vegetables and fruits and avoid consumption of junk food as much as possible. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Exercise is helpful in both reducing stress and increasing focus. At-least 20 minutes a day would go a long way. Optimize your mental state & environment in addition to building the habits described above into your daily routine, also adjust your environment and your current mental state to improve your concentration when studying. Create a study spot. Your brain loves routine. Create a place where all you do is study. An obvious choice is a secluded desk of some kind, but the trick is to make sure you only study in that spot. Studying in bed is a bad habit, for example, because your body is trained to want to sleep once you get into bed. Remove distractions. Turn off the ringer on your phone and take other steps to prevent interruptions. Don't study with the television on or with talk radio playing. Some studies have shown that soft instrumental music (no vocals) can help improve your concentration. Block background noises. If you have to study or work in an environment where it is too loud (classroom or open space) or too quiet (such as at home or at a library) you can get easily distracted by outside influences. With the right amount of background noise you can actually block out distractions and enhance your creative thinking. Use time boxes. Set a time limit when you need to study new material. For example, let's say you want to read one chapter in a book (and remember it). Decide in advance that you can have 45 minutes to read the chapter, and 15 minutes to review it. Set a timer to keep yourself honest, then pace yourself to keep within the allotted time. Stay motivated with rewards. If you see studying as burden, it's hard to concentrate. One way to stay motivated is to set up a reward system. Tell yourself you have to earn that hour of watching your favorite show later in the evening by first completing one hour of intense studying. That way, even if the material is dry, you have the reward to look forward to. Take a break every two hours. You mental energy will begin to decline after a long period of study. So every two hours or so, take a ten minute break. Walk around, eat a light snack, or just stare at the wall to relax your mind. Concentrating is the first step to learning anything new. It only makes sense that if you improve your concentration, your memory will improve also. Hope this helps, wishing you very best,

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. At your brothers age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. Take care.
