Sir I Want to Know the effect of weed? And want to Quit Smoking because want to improve gastrointestinal what should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
When you stop it will improve a lot of better things than gastrointestinal problems. It is a good decision you have made and now it is important to implement it. Marijuana has varied findings and claims, many of which are dubious, and some for medicinal uses that are authentic. But each person reacts differently to these substances and you definitely sound like someone who is not reacting well. These drugs can precipitate underlying anxiety, quite innocuously. In the meantime, you must go on a regular exercise program, eat well and sleep well. A personality course will certainly help. Do Yoga and meditation too. If the addiction is in any way covering up some deep-rooted pain, you need to work on that and clear that out of your system. I hope you are aware that people who are addicted are often spiritually bankrupt. It would be wise for you to touch base with your faith and turn to some spiritual exercises to reform your path on the right track. I am sure it will help. Do not delay any action by denial: a typical reaction of all addicts. It comes in the form of over-confidence, some arrogance, and denying the existence of any problem. Stopping weed is like any other habit like smoking and has to be done immediately, promptly, and abruptly. When quitting, you must take one day at a time. 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 and the high you get from the weed. 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 weed to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. Though there are contravening information percolating from researchers of various kinds expounding its benefits. 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 chewing gum. 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, even though you are into weed. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers of weed and cigarettes 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 refill, 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.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS

Dear, thanks for sharing your problem. I will try to help you. Look, in your case it appears that your mind remains pre-occupied with some thoughts and as a result you often can not pay attention to desired events, tasks. These thoughts may be worries, apprehension or mind pleasing. Such a thing can happen with any body. If you remember that you forget, it means your memory is ok, your mind seems to be elsewhere for the time. You may be stressed/ depressed and may be thinking about past/present/future excessively. If so, you need a psychiatric consultation to rule out anxiety/ stress.

I have been diagnosed as BIPOLAR II. I have read that BIPOLAR II is not a real disorder and is made to be a disorder in order for the pharma companies to make profit. Is it true? If I do have BIPOLAR II I have heard there is no cure for it and it is only treatable. Does that mean that lifelong I have to live with this disorder?

I can not concentrate, how can I concentrate on my study and what should I do at late night study?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Keep aside all your worries. Note down important tasks to be done after study and forget about them while studying. Keep study room comfortable. You may join any of your colleagues who may bring your attention back when diverted during study. You may download few relaxing music or instrumental music to run in background while studying. This will help you in improving concentration so that you may pay attention on your studies. All the best.

Der Nazeed, Do you want general answer for treatment of Cyclothymia? If it a only a personality trait, it needs counselling. If it a personality disorder it needs therapy, either cognitive or interpersonal. If it has already gone into a bipolar affective disorder (BPAD) it needs Lamotrigine in adequate dose for many years. Steroids can cause mood changes. It needs to be assessed along with your chest allergy and infection

If this is your first time leaving it is absolutely normal to miss your home town and feel lonely. I am sure you might have strong reason to accept this job and move. If you focus on those positive factors due to which you are here it might help you release the stress. Along with it I would also suggest you to take active steps to meet new people and visit new places as a tourist. This will tremendous help you reduce your stress. If yoh are not engaged in regular exercise you may join a gym or runners or bikers club etc. This will expose you to more people on a daily basis thus provide more opportunities to find some friends. Listening to good music also help reduce stress so you may try the same as well. Once I understand the exact block would be able to suggest more specific action for you to work on. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

My daughter is staying away from home since last 10 years because of studies and work. Now she has completed her studies and want to do some job. We are telling her to do the job in our city so that we all can live together. But she doesn't want to come back and neither want to stay with us. She wants to be alone and away from us. She is marriage able but don't want to marry now. May be she is afraid of us that we will press her for marriage. How can we convince her that we want her to be happy and will never pressure her to go against her will. Should I stay with her for some time? Very confusing and worried.

Ask here what is the reason behind her decision of staying away from home? is it because you will press for marriage or she won't have freedom that she can have otherwise? she may have friends or boyfriend there that she doesn't want to come back? if growth opportunities are good there let her do job there and one of you can go and stay with her. It's been 10 years she is away and therefore is not that home sick and dependant. Let her do job where ever she wants to. If you really want her back due to some genuine reason explain her the bright side of staying with you. Ask her about her fears and clear her doubts. Don't worry just tell her what you all feel genuinely leave rest on her. Make her little emotional if it s for her good. All the best.

My father has bad habit of chewing tobacco and it is not good for his health. How can I help him to stop chewing tobacco? Is there any medicine? His health is getting weak now days.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
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.

I am preparing for bank po exam from last 2 years. I had prepared very well. I was good in all subjects yet I cannot convert this things into good score and did not get job .The reason is too much anxiety during exam. I cannot control my mind even during exam. I missed crucial time due to this and mind get more diverted. Due to anxiety I smoke 2 3 cigarettes before exam but I am not sure this affect my performance or not. Due to tension masturbation becomes compulsion during preparation and these thoughts constantly distracting me during exam hours. I cannot able to implement the question during exam which I had rigorously practiced during preparation yet I am able to solve it at home in same time. Due to continuous failure my confidence becomes nil.

Dear friend you know it all, can you have courage to face any result, good or bad? it is the fear of negative and obsession of positive which is causing so much unrest. For just one time, do as I suggest. Give the exams casually not keen on passing them. And you will pass! remember cigarettes have proven to increase anxiety and there is a false feeling that it relieves it. The nicotine craving builds up anxiety which one feels is relieved by smoking. Lastly even if you masturbate do not torture and start another conflict by feeling guilty. Chill.

8 Stress-Related Health Problems: Know The Signs

Today, everyone seems to have an increased amount of stress, whether it is due to the economy, their job, layoff or family relationships and other constraints. Many medical and physical complaints that we have can in some way or another be due to or can be worsened by stress.

Here are eight of the most common stress-induced conditions and the evidence behind them.
1. Depression and anxiety/panic disorders. This is pretty easy to understand. The more stress a person has, the worse underlying mental health disorders can become. The stress of loss of a loved one, loss of a job or threat of losing your job, or a strained relationship can lead to overwhelming sadness or symptoms of panic. Insomnia and sleep disturbances can occur as racing thoughts and increased worry at night. Alcohol and tobacco abuse can also occur concurrently as ways to self-medicate in the absence of correct ways of treatment such as prayer, counseling, therapy or prescribed medication.

2. Hypertension and heart disease. Otherwise known as high blood pressure, stress can cause an increase in constriction of blood vessels. Stress has not been proven as a direct cause of high blood pressure, but it can have an overall effect on the release of hormones from the nervous system and circulatory systems, which makes it harder for the heart to pump blood to our vital organs. If blood pressure is chronically high and blood vessels have enough damage or cholesterol buildup, heart disease can be the result. Some chest pain can even be linked to stress.

3. GERD (acid reflux) and stomach ulcers. Emotional stress can lead to an increased production of acid from proton pumps and H2 receptors in our stomachs. If acidity is prominent, a burning sensation can be felt and pain can extend from the stomach (in the center and to the left of the middle of the stomach) all the way up to the esophagus and throat. Foods that we eat, including caffeinated beverages, spicy ingredients and citrus can make this worse. If left for too long, ulcers, or an eating away of the lining of the stomach, can develop and even worsen to the point of bleeding.

4. Obesity. Stress can cause an increase of the hormone cortisol to be released from the adrenal glands. Cortisol is linked to increased glucose (blood sugar) and weight gain. Also, while some of us eat less with stress, many of us eat more ?comfort foods,? which are generally more sweet and fatty, and have more calories.

5. Headaches. Migraines are thought to be the most common type of headache, but tension is probably higher on the list of causes of headache. Both types can increase with stress. With tension headaches, a tense pressure or squeeze can be felt in any part of the head, usually with muscle tension and soreness of the neck and even shoulders. Migraines are thought to be associated with signals from the nervous system that relax blood vessels. When vessels relax, blood rushes to them and cause dilation. If too dilated, this can cause pain.

6. Abnormal menstrual cycles. Skipping a period can be very distressing for a woman, especially if unexplained. Although we don?t know what the certain cause is, it is thought that emotional stress affects release of certain pituitary hormones that can cause irregular periods. If weight is lost or gained due to stress, estrogen or a lack thereof, it can also cause irregular periods.

7. Viral infections. When we're stressed or fatigued, our immune system doesn?t work as well to prevent us from infection. We all have antibodies from vaccines or from previous infections that have built up in memory cells and are programmed to increase when we are exposed to infections. Stress reduces this response. Colds can occur more frequently and, even worse, viruses such as herpes and HPV (human papilloma virus can show themselves during these ?down? times.

8. Cancers. This one is controversial, as some studies say one thing and some say another. The conflicting data questions whether stress can be a direct cause of some cancers. In 2002, a study was done on patients who had breast cancer that was treated. The question was asked if stress could be linked to the cancer coming back. The study could not prove it to be true. However, in animal studies, an increase of stress hormones was linked directly to growth of some tumors. Long story short, the evidence is inconsistent, but there may be truth to the claim that stress can lead to certain cancers.
All in all, be self-aware of the signs. If you?re feeling overwhelmed, as we all at some point do, be proactive by exercising, drinking plenty of water, getting good restful sleep and doing those things that you enjoy doing with those you love. If it still feels like life is crashing down on you or your body is breaking down, please ask me privately here.
