Eating chalk can be an indicator of calcium deficiency. You have not mentioned her. You can take her to a paediatrician if shes a kid or consult a physician who will diagnose and prescribe accordingly.

I was used to drunk a lot. Now I want to give it up. Is this possible? Without any serious diseases? Please advice.

It is good you have decided to stop your drinking. I am assuming that you have ‘Hit Rock Bottom’, which is the worst state for you with the habit. If that is the case, you are absolutely ready and will do well with the recovery. If you feel you need to be admitted so that it is easier, then you have two options: to go to a hospital and do a detoxification for between 10 to 14 days; and to check in into a rehabilitation center and live there for 3 to six months. In the former they will remove all the chemicals and its toxins from your body which will decrease the physical craving for alcohol. In the latter, it is more comprehensive, where the physical craving and the psychological craving will both be addressed and the initial treatment from all aspects will be taken care of. After that you would still need to attend therapy and finish the course, which can be up to 3 complete years. You must also frequent the AA (Alcoholic Anonymous) meetings that have known to offer the best support system for alcoholics collectively, in the same predicament. There will also be some family therapy to prepare them to deal with their own issues and as well as how to support you. You will need to make a personal transformation and change some of your habits and friends associated with the habit. You will learn to handle your feelings, money, social life, personal life, family responsibilities, find non-alcoholic ways to find fun, learn normal ways to enjoy yourself and have a structured way for follow up. You will indeed learn a lot and come out successful. If you wish to do the same with an addiction counselor, then you need to be very determined and completely cooperative to make any progress. It is difficult but not impossible, and the daily routine has to be carefully planned and followed to make any success out of it.

From your version your boy friend seems to be suffering from borderline personality disorder. Your obsession with the guy may be associated with your own need for attention and recognition which he consistently gives either in a positive way or negative way. You continuation of this relationship can only land in problems and consistent emotional distress. So better quit the relationship and start focusing on your academics and career.

What are the effects of smoking marijuana? Some people says that it is not harmful, what is the truth, harmful or not?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
That is the effect of marijuana and that is also the catch in it: its pleasant effects and creative stimulus are enticing but so are the dangers. Not much is known about its entertainment value or benefits. There is a lot of hype by those who want to legitimize it and those who love it: there is a bias because of their selfish motives. The antagonists on the other hand willfully propagate the dangers, sometimes without substantiated reasons to dissuade its use. If you know it is harmful why would you want to play with it. The obsession and compulsive use is when you become addicted to the substance. Just for your information here’s what WebMD has to say: ‘No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When you smoke pot, your body absorbs THC right away. (If you eat baked goods or another item, it may take much longer for your body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in your stomach before it enters your bloodstream). You may notice changes in your body right after you smoke. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That’s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don’t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: • Dizziness • Shallow breathing • Red eyes and dilated pupils • Dry mouth • Increased appetite • Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you’re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.’ It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ‘cross hallucinations’ i.e. for example, you can see sounds and hear colors!!!

These are pubertal feelings which usually upsurge at your age, do not seek a companion for these reasons. A companion for sharing one's thought and feelings can be more fruitful. Respect others as you want them to respect you. Masturbation occasionally is alright but do not make it a compulsive habit. Better concentrate on developing your career and personality.

Smoking is bad for health but one person 20 time's smoke what is the effect on person.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Very serious and dangerous affects will be there even if there are no signs of it now. Take a look at these effects and then take a call in the direction of quitting it altogether. Summary: (Source:Center for Disease Control and Prevention) • Cigarette smoking causes more than 480,000 deaths each year in the United States. This is nearly one in five deaths. • More than 10 times as many U.S. citizens have died prematurely from cigarette smoking than have died in all the wars fought by the United States during its history. • Smoking causes about 90% (or 9 out of 10) of all lung cancer deaths in men and women.1,2 More women die from lung cancer each year than from breast cancer. • About 80% (or 8 out of 10) of all deaths from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are caused by smoking. • Cigarette smoking increases risk for death from all causes in men and women. • Smoking is estimated to increase the risk— o For coronary heart disease by 2 to 4 times o For stroke by 2 to 4 times o Of men developing lung cancer by 25 times • Of women developing lung cancer by 25.7 times • Smoking causes diminished overall health, increased absenteeism from work, and increased health care utilization and cost. • Smoking causes stroke and coronary heart disease. • Even people who smoke fewer than five cigarettes a day can have early signs of cardiovascular disease. • Smoking damages blood vessels and can make them thicken and grow narrower. This makes your heart beat faster and your blood pressure go up. Clots can also form. • Blockages caused by smoking can also reduce blood flow to your legs and skin. • Lung diseases caused by smoking include COPD, which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. • Cigarette smoking causes most cases of lung cancer. • If you have asthma, tobacco smoke can trigger an attack or make an attack worse. • Smokers are 12 to 13 times more likely to die from COPD than nonsmokers. Smoking can cause cancer almost anywhere in your body: • Bladder • Blood (acute myeloid leukemia) • Cervix • Colon and rectum (colorectal) • Esophagus • Kidney and ureter • Larynx • Liver • Oropharynx (includes parts of the throat, tongue, soft palate, and the tonsils) • Pancreas • Stomach • Trachea, bronchus, and lung • Smoking can make it harder for a woman to become pregnant and can affect her baby's health before and after birth. Smoking increases risks for: o Preterm (early) delivery o Stillbirth (death of the baby before birth) o Low birth weight o Sudden infant death syndrome (known as SIDS or crib death) o Ectopic pregnancy o Orofacial clefts in infants • Smoking can also affect men's sperm, which can reduce fertility and also increase risks for birth defects and miscarriage. • Smoking can affect bone health. o Women past childbearing years who smoke have weaker bones than women who never smoked, and are at greater risk for broken bones. • Smoking affects the health of your teeth and gums and can cause tooth loss. • Smoking can increase your risk for cataracts (clouding of the eye’s lens that makes it hard for you to see) and age-related macular degeneration (damage to a small spot near the center of the retina, the part of the eye needed for central vision). • Smoking is a cause of type 2 diabetes mellitus and can make it harder to control. The risk of developing diabetes is 30–40% higher for active smokers than nonsmokers. • Smoking causes general adverse effects on the body, including inflammation and decreased immune function. • Smoking is a cause of rheumatoid arthritis.

You need help immediately before this turns out to become ugly. There is obviously some reason from childhood that has triggered this feeling and needs investigation and resolution. At your age, this may be compounded with hormonal productions, which will tend to spurt in quantity and lead to complications. During this time there will be a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone, which has a duration of two years. Due to this chemical alone, there are three identified features that present itself over which you have little or no control: you will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and you will have acne and pimple problems. Then if you has unresolved childhood issues, like I think you have, they will compound the situation and fuel uncontrolled behavior. If you are losing self-control you are likely to have all fo these symptoms and need professional help right away. You can discuss this with your parents and get their help, how much ever you hate doing this.

Hello lybrate user. Ya definitely having headache or not able to bear sunlight may be suggestive of eye related problems, but the rest other signs do not go with it. At your age having lack of concentration, forgetting things, lack of concentration, constant tiredness with having headache or head heaviness may be signs of depression. You need to get evaluated for the same by a psychiatrist and if there are other signs too like persistent pervasive low mood and lack of interest, you may be started on anti-depressants with expecting good amount of improvement in a month of start of medications. Hoping the best for you. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. I don't think you have any memory related problems. Still to be sure, I suggest you to undergo memory test online or offline. You may contact me after getting the result. Memory depends on three things. Understanding, retention and recollection. To understand better, you have to learn better, effectively. I suggest online educational counseling. Take care.

Dear user, welcome to lybrate-user. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. You may consult a psychologist online or in person for advice, counseling and therapy. Take care.

Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Can you tell me how to improve from mentally stress if you have a suggestion then pleas tell me.
When we are stressed it is natural for us to feel lonely, feel sad and down and at times feel irritated, frustrated and get angry. As we take time out to do so many thing in our daily life we also need to learn how to take care of our inner self. How to nurture and grow our true self. Following tips will help you re build new response when you are stressed. Chronic stress is a byproduct of our busy life style these days, which at times leads to feeling of burnout and depression. Building your resilience will help you manage your stress and help in depression. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. 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. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. As a positive psychologist and a certified life and wellness coach I would be able to help build resilience and confidence to take on life and learn how to excel in what you do. I also offer 3 to 6 months program where we need on a weekly basis to work towards your goal achievement. In case of need you may contact me. Hope this helps. Wishing you very best.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

You seem to be stressed out about some past issues. Self counselling doesn't help much if you are not self aware. Visit a professional counsellor who will help you to gain self awareness and insights into your problems and behaviour patterns. Trouble in love life is a good enough reason to feel depressed but that doesn't mean that you can't deal with it or cope effectively.
