Hello doctor, am under too stress. I want to clear my problem as soon as possible. I could not take any decisions because of this issues. Am married. But my family side no support. My husband was took care of me well. Now am 4 months pregnant. When I got confirmation about my pregnancy my husband feel happy. But at the same time he forced me to get my parents support. But they ignored me. Then after, he was silent. He was good to me. 20 days back his college friend started to msging to him. Day and night full chat. I told him to maintain timings. She too married and have 2 kids. But her personal family life is not good. She was his ex lover. But due to family reasons he rejected her. In earlier I did not take serious. But is sensed something going bad. I just checked his msges. They both wanted together. She literally made him to drag towards her. Because she needs love. He got mind distraction. His past memories made him to chat and he too started to move towards her. I keep on discussed with him smooth manner. Because am pregnant I should not be in much depress. And also I do not have support. So I was keep moving smooth with him. Yesterday, night she msged to him. I got too wild and I msged her to stop her msg. She immediately called him and ask about my place. Previously, he stayed in paying guest till arrange a house. So I think he maintain that he is living in paying guest. Because he do not want to loose her. And loose me also. After my msg he behaved very violent to me. He kicked me backside. Now am having slight pain in my stomach. He beated me very badly today morning. He forgot that am pregnant. He feels that his lies came out. But he covered up something to her. Now I do not know what he is going to take decision. And I do not know what am going to take decision. But my intension is not scolding her. I thought of control her msges. Because she came in between, he slipped suddenly. Human mentality will change anytime. But their conversation is like husband and wife. She is living australia. She having nice money. So she booked tickets to india to meet my husband. So what to predict regard this meeting? I can not even imagine if anything happen physical. But when ever I ask regard her msg. He told something to me. But he msged some other thing to her close. So please doctor advise me. What to do regard this.
The chronic alcoholic first of all must make a firm resolve stop drinking. One should abstain from alcohol all at once for the habit cannot be got rid of in gradual stages.
The most effective way to treat alcoholism is to build the body's nutritional integrity so as to prevent craving for stimulants like drinks. The patients should be put on a cleansing juice fast for at least 10 days in the beginning. During this period, he should have the juice of an orange every two hours from 8 am. To 8 pm. The juice may be diluted with warm water if desired. If orange juice does not agree, grapes juices may be taken. Each day while fasting, bowels should be cleansed of effete and poisonous matter thrown off by the self- cleansing process set up by the body. This can be achieved by warm water enema.
During the juice fast, the patient will usually feel no craving for alcohol. This will a good 10-day start towards breaking the drinking habit and would help remove not only the physical dependence but also the psychological factors. After the initial fast on juices, the optimum diet of vital nutrients is essential. Such a diet should consist of whole grains, cereals, nuts, seeds and sprouts, fresh fruits and vegetable.
It is advisable that in the beginning of the treatment, the patient is given a suitable substitute to relieve the craving if and when such a craving occurs. The best substitute drink for alcohol is a glass of fresh fruit juice, sweetened with honey if desired. In the alternative, wholesome candy may be taken. The patient should always have easily available juice, candy or other snacks to be taken between meals if he feels a craving for a stimulant.
All refined foods such as sugar, white rice, macaroni products and white flour and meat should be avoided. The patient should eat several small, meals a day in preference to two or three large once and avoid strong condiments such as pepper, mustard and chilly. He should not smoke as this will only increase his desire for alcohol.
Apples are considered valuable in the treatment of alcoholism as there, use removes intoxication and reduces the craving for wines and other intoxication liquors. The raw celery juice is also considered useful. It has a sobering effect and is an antidote to alcohol.
In addition to proper nutrition, plenty of rest and outdoor exercise are necessary. The healthy condition of the appetite center, which controls the craving for alcohol is improved by exercise. Yogic asans for general health such as padmasan, vajrasan, vakrasan, paschimotanasan, yoga mudra, bhujangasan, halasan and shalabhasana, and yogic kriyas like jalneti, kunjal and simple pranayamas like kapalbhati, anuloma-viloma, shitali and sitkari will be beneficial.
Copious drinking of water, hot fomentations on the stomach and abdomen with a wet girdle pack between application are also effective water treatments for alcoholism.
And finally, it will be advisable to follow the ten commandments to prevent alcoholism. These are:
Never drink when you 'need one':
Space your drinks, taking a second drink 30 minutes after the first and a third an hour after the second; dilute your alcohol;
Keep an accurate and truthful record of the amount and number of drinks you take;
Never conceal the amount of alcohol you drink;
Do not drink on an empty stomach;
Stop drinking on 'signal' (signals are lunch, dinner, fatigue, sex stimulation, boredom, frustration and bedtime);
Make it a rule never to take a drink to escape discomfort-either physical or mental; and never, never take a drink in the morning thinking it will cure a hangover.
