I am 35 year old and alcoHolic person. My weight is 90 kg. I wanna stop alcohol. Any medicine for that.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will need to meet with a doctor who will prescribe disulfiram, an antabuse, which when taken cannot be mixed with any alcohol. If you so much as consumed even small quantities found in medicines, you an have an adverse reaction and may involve hospitalization. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Your children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with the wife and children and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast.

How to stop smoking and how to make other to stop smoking. What are it's advantage and disadvantage?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
I feel really happy for you guys who have guts to digest the truth that habitual smoking is an addiction and I am very much sure that guys like you although understand the disatrous effectss of habitual smoking but out of their craving or compulsion are unable to do so.But I wll try to figure out a clear picture in front of you and let you decide how to quit this habit as I think you are strong enough to quit this habit as you have a strong mind to accept this addiction. 1.Yash,it was 16 when you sstarted smoking.Just think it yourself that was this the age to start smoking.This Is the age to relish your time,your age,free from all tensions just enjoying your Parents luxuries but you opted the other way,putting yourself into the darkness of fumes,Smoking .You just think how much money of your parents you have wasted till now. 2.Just ssee the poor people around you who cant make up for one time meals.Just think that if you were not ssmoking ,how many of them would you have fed during last 2 years and try to feel that happiness that you must have got and now you are deprived off. 3. Tell your friends, family, and other people you’re close to that you’re trying to quit. They can encourage you to keep going, especially when you’re tempted to light up. I uggest you to join a SUPPORT GROUP of people who have quit smoking by hearing their experiences with you. 4..You can quit. All you need is the proper motivation. Maybe a visit to a pulmonary clinic might help. Take a long look around at the people in the lobby. Many of them are like you (and me), they smoked for years and always had the excuse that it was just too hard to quit. Just think, if you keep lighting up, you can end up just like them. If you really want an eye-opener, go to a hospital and volunteer your services for a month or so. Every time you light up a cigarette, you get one step closer to that for an end. Be strong. You can beat this habit just like millions of people do every year. You just need a stronger reason to quit - at least a stronger reason that the one you use to defend your smoking. Good luck. I know what it feels like to be on both sides of this thing. 5.. It's important for you to reprioritize your spare time that would have been spent smoking. Try a new hobby, get out and & walk/exercise, read ... anything. Remember that cravings only last a couple of minutes. 6.Homoeopathic medicine DAPHNE INDICA 1X( Wilmar Schwabe India) Chew 2 tab 3 times daily AVENA SATIVA Q ( Dr RECKEWEG) Drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water twice daily To start with start early morning Brisk walking for 30 minutes and breathing deep while walking. ALOM VILOM PRANAYAM daily for 15 minute any time during the day. Report after 30 days There is always written on every cigratte case that CIGRATTE IS INJURIOUS TO HEALTH.It itself proves that we smoke only due to a habit or compulsion although understanding its after effects but reluctant to leave this monster habit.I dont think there is a single advantage of smoking cigratte apart from its primary action in a Habitual smoker that it creates mental alertness immediately after smoking.But disadvantages of smoking are countless like Ageing,Lung and mouth cancer,Breathing prolems,Resp.allergy like Asthma,Heart insufficiencies and many more.

This could be a symptom of underlying anxiety and panic about certain situations which you are not in control of. Please see a counsellor and psychiatrist to get your assessment and start the treatment. In the meantime start exercising every day so that you are able to manage stress better. Eat a high protein diet which helps in mood regulation and do yoga pranayama and meditation which helps immensely in anxiety and palpitations.

Hi Doc, I have been suffering from an anxiety disorder with intrusive thoughts rendering more anxiety. I do not feel sad or depressed at all, I get random intrusive thoughts in unexpected situations, for example if am in a work meeting in a conference hall, I get a sudden intrusive thought which is" what if I say something abusive / offensive to my superior" and this thought although irrational triggers some anxiety and then there is that fear of having an anxiety attack which is whats more intense. I am PERFECTLY normal when the thought fades off or after we step out of the room. Please help me understand the nature of this problem. I have never acted upon my intrusive thoughts but the intense anxiety is troubling.

It is common problem and this is human psychology as our past experiences reflect on current mental status. Do any meditation process which you know is bonafide and can help you. Drink cow's milk in night as this is proven to improve clarity of thought sequence in mind. Avoid foods which are too spicy,oily, and bitter. Strictly take to vegetarian foods and fruits but avoid non-vegetarian foods which are not natural on human gastrointestinal tract and adversely mind,body and wellbeing

Dear lybrate-user, Stopping the medicine and restartin it agin shows that you want to experiment with yourself. It can be dangerous. Talk to your doctor as the medicines will be prescribed after assessing the severity of symptoms. Ask for help. Help yourself to recover. Don't contribute anything to disease. When you can see the positive change after medicines you should go for follow up and ask wheather the same dose of medicine is required or not? Most of the times doctors taper off the medicine. Let he give his expert advice. If you have any doubts or side effects talk openly to your psychiatrist but don't stop the medicines. Enjoy the recovery by adhering to medicine, counselling and follow up as well.

Mam or sir I feel very lonely n stressful as nobody is there with whom I can talk or share my feelings.
Hello we all do face situations which make feel lonely, sad etc. Everyone need people to share their feelings and form connections. But its also true that we ourselves can bring change. For this you need to motivate yourself and promise yourself that you will bring change in yourself. You can engage yourself into some hobby classes like cooking or art and craft. As you start going there, you may start connecting with the people around. May be soon you find any good friend. Writing diary daily could also be good option to let your feelings out. It will help you to understand the reasons for these feelings. All the best, please feel free to give your feedback.

Make it a point to bring your mind from distractions to study and work. If you control your mind, mind becomes your friend, but if you allow your mind to wander or be distracted, then mind becomes your enemy.

Hello, you could be suffering from intermittent explosive disorder which is an impulse control disorder in which small upsetting events could trigger an anger outburst during which person does not have much control over his behaviour. This is followed by a sense of relief and guilt for whatever is said or done during the anger outburst. There are anger management techniques as well as effective medicines for this condition.

I have an issue of getting angry very quickly. So I want to know that is it a symptoms of any disease?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Uncontrolled anger is a sign of personality problem or stress. If you are like this since childhood days then you may have to change this habit gradually over a period of few months. Follow this:- 1. Whenever there is a situation that initiates anger, you try to become more polite in your approach. You take few long deep breaths and try to relax your body for some time. 2. You may try to avoid such situations. 3. You should a healthy life style with good nutrititious diet, regular yoga, meditation and exercise, enough time for rest, recreation and sleep, have some personal time to pursue whatever you like for example listening your favourite music, watching favourite tv serials etc.

I always remain in a depress mood. Is this the reason that's affecting My study life and Everything?
At your age you should be feeling like" the king of the world" but you are sad and feeling low most of the times. What has happened? did something happen in recent past because of which you are not happy or did something happen in your childhood that is not allowing you to be happy? please check with yourself. Then try to sort out the issues. If required take help from a counsellor. We all have ups and downs in life. No phase in life is constant. If you are sad, then please remember - this will also pass. You will again have good times in life. At the same time, please try to have a positive attitude towards life. Make a list of all good things in your life and about yourself. Understand your own abilities and skills and accordingly pursue studies of your interests. Have goals in life. Have a systematic plan to achieve those goals. Expect some set backs hence, plan some alternatives/solutions for such situations. Life is beautiful. Enjoy life, by taking care of yourself physically and mentally. Be in the company of people and friends with positive attitude. Seek entertainment from healthy sources. Focus on studies as you are shaping up your future now. All the best.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

You sound like you could be in an unhealthy symbiosis with your parents and therefore the high level of fear in their absence. This may have contributed to the breakup with your last girlfriend. Your fear is now too much that your imagination is running wild and suggesting all kinds of possibilities to actually seem like you are suffering from a heart problem. You need to break the bonds with your parents and learn to be independent. You must meet with a counselor and work out your dependency needs. In the meantime, you could also attend a good personality development course, socializing course, attend a gym regularly and learn a lot of skills in relating to other people. You need to develop​ self-confidence and self-esteem too.

Hi I am 28 year old male. I am software engineer. I think I am in depression because of my wife behavior. Please help me to save my life…We have been married more than 5 years now. My wife is good, however she is short tempered. Sometime she does’t even hesitate to scream at me or at my parents or at her parents or at our kid even in a party or a public place. I and her parents tried a lot to talk to her but all gone waste. Most of the time, the main reason of her screaming is any external intervention. For example she has her own way to do everything however if you try to show her a better way then she gets angry and it take her almost 2-3 days to behave normal. I really need a practical advice to handle this situation. Some time I am feeling of sadness, lack of concentration, slowness in activity and thought, or thoughts of suicide without any reason.

Let us first deal with problems of your wife. It seems she has anger management problems. It's natural to disagree or get annoyed at somebody's opinion if it gets against our own, but we need to learn to have a balanced response, no matter where we are, alone or in a party. Such uncontrolled anger outbursts can be due to personality problems, hormonal disturbances, mood disorders etc which need treatment with some medications and counseling. She would definitely be much better with treatment. As regards you, if you are bothered by your wife's behaviour for 5 years and feel sad and harming your own self, it means that you have given up on her. Also it seems that your mind is ina helpless situation and you find life worthless. You also need counselling for the same and some medicines to calm your state of mind.

Most commonly, diagnoses of acute painful spinal conditions are nonspecific, such as neck or back strain, although injuries may affect any of several pain-sensitive structures, which include the disk, facet joints, spinal musculature, and ligamentous support. The origin of chronic back pain is often assumed to be degenerative conditions of the spine; however, controlled studies have indicated that any correlation between clinical symptoms and radiological signs of degeneration is minimal or nonexistent. Inflammatory arthropathy, metabolic bone conditions, and fibromyalgia are cited in others as the cause of chronic spine-related pain conditions. Homoeopathy offers quick, safe and permanent cure for any such conditions, you have to give your detailed case history to select correct medicine for you. Also change your lifestyle to a healthy one, go for regular exercise, eat more vegetables and fruits, drink plenty of water, try to relax for few minutes between work.
