Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Nicotex is useful for quitting smoking upto an extent. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.

I went to neurologist in 2013. He prescribed me antidepressants for 6 months; as a result of that I suffer from depression symptoms. Now whom should I consult? I suffer from many symptoms now.

MD - Psychiatry

Antidepressant medicines do not cause depression. These medicines reduce & cure Depression. If after treatment also your depressive symptoms are increasing, then better take opinion of a Psychiatrist, as either the medicine is not helping you or the dose have to be adjusted. There is treatment available for depression in the form of medicines & counseling. Get yourself evaluated by a Psychiatrist, who will make your proper diagnosis regarding whether you are suffering from depression or some other condition, & then you will be prescribed medicines or advised counseling sessions accordingly. Along with, take the following measures to help yourself: •Try to lead an active life & maintain a healthy lifestyle. Go for a walk, exercise regularly, do some yoga or relaxation techniques daily. •Try to be contented with what is in hand. Over expectation is usually harmful. •Set goals which are realistic & within your capability & try to pursue them. •Do not spend time alone. Spend time with friends, family members or well wishers with whom you feel comfortable & positive. •Read motivational books & quotes. •Spend some time daily recollecting the good moments in your life. •Try to evaluate things practically & rationally. •Avoid people who spreads negativity or demoralize you. •Avoid watching or reading mind disturbing things like violence, crime, horrors etc. •Maintain a daily routine. •Pursue your hobbies or keep a pet. •Every day spend some time with nature & try to feel its beauty. •Stay away from substance of abuse like alcohol, cannabis, inhalants, drugs etc. •If any problem is there in your life, put your maximum effort & try to solve it. Work to enhance your problem solving skills & coping skills. If you are not able to solve any problem yourself, discuss about it with a well wisher or take professional help. •Keep reminding yourself the fact that people with bigger problems exist in this world. Then your problem will seem trivial. •Read or watch comedies & laugh to your fullest. •Above all, keep reminding yourself that life is precious & one is gifted with this life for once only. Every moment, every day is precious & life once lost can never be regained back.

YOu have to forget the break up and be positive in thinking that your best partner is yet to come and do meditation and yoga. If none of this helps you you need antidepressant medicines.

Nonsense, there is no connection between nightfall and garlic. Garlic is good for you. Nocturnal emissions are absolutely normal anyway and it is a discharge of excess semen and is a natural process. At this age, there will be more of this activity and is absolutely normal.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder - Common Traits Revealed!

MD - Podiatrist
Psychiatrist, Lucknow
Narcissistic Personality Disorder - Common Traits Revealed!

While it is true that all our egos need some boosting from time to time, constantly nursing it to feel too proud about oneself and being too self-indulgent does not help. In plain words, that is what a narcissist does. The term finds its roots in Greek mythology where Narcissus was so absorbed with himself. This gradually got converted to Narcissism to indicate people (who, like him) became too self-obsessed.

By definition, it is applied to people who have a long-term pattern of grandiosity above themselves, either in fantasy or in actual behaviour. They constantly seek admiration, are too self-indulgent, and have a great degree of apathy towards almost everybody else.

The following are some traits that are usually found in people with this personality.

  1. They are preoccupied with fantasies where they see themselves with unlimited power, beauty, success, and brilliance.
  2. Have a false perception of superiority and do not associate with most people
  3. Completely lack apathy and do not usually connect with the feelings of people around them
  4. Have a grandiose opinion about themselves and think they are super-important in the lives of everybody around them
  5. Expect appreciation and praise, even if not worthy of it
  6. Think of themselves as special and unique
  7. Are considered arrogant and haughty by most people who associate with them
  8. Constantly seeks admiration and compliments
  9. Prone to exploiting relationships
  10. Enjoy flattery
  11. Inability to accept even small rejections
  12. Inability to take criticism
  13. Deep hidden feeling of insecurity and low self-esteem
  14. Can be very defensive and try to prove their point
  15. Fear of humiliation
  16. Very vulnerable, especially to rejections, humiliations
  17. Get enraged without specific reason to feel better and put down the other person
  18. If someone contradicts their view point, there could be major argument and even physical assault
  19. A combination of these features usually causes problems in relationships and friendships and affects their overall personal and professional lives. It is more common in males, and tends to decrease with age.

While initially narcissist may come across as extremely confident personalities, slowly it comes across as much more than that. While they do feel confident, at times, the confidence may not be true. It is just that feeling of self-importance which makes them to believe that what they are doing is right.

Causes: While there is no single cause leading to someone developing this personality, a combination of genetic, social, and psychological factors leads to this condition. Excessive pampering and/or criticism also can lead to this.

Treatment: This usually requires long-term counselling with people who are trained in handling such cases. They need to become less self-indulgent and more empathetic towards others, which takes time, but is not impossible.

I lost somebody close last year and. Since and then feel very depressed and prefer to to keeping to myself all the time that way my eating capacity also become low my smotach is not accepting any type ko food dinner lunch that way I get feel like tired and I got pain in my heart also by thinking that person who is dead she is very close to me she world that way I feel very depressed please help me to come out from these problem please.

Hi lybrate-user! I can understand the pain when one loses someone close, one feels the pain, the memories, make them cry, you feel lonely, can't smile or laugh at all, you can't understand what is happening around you you feel blank. The depression is the common symptom each and everyone experienced during a loss of someone close. The impact of the loss matters depending upon the person characteristics, personality and the how deep one takes the pain. You need to accept the loss, should of course cry, stay alone for certain period of time, at least takes 2 to 3 months to heal naturally. If you find difficulty to manage to heal naturally, you need to eat, way of exhausting depression through various hobbies. One cannot erase one's loss till their lost breath, but instead of thinking always and ruining their lives one shld keep moving in life to at least fulfil one's day to day needs, can't remain still, at least to live and lead a normal life one needs to keep moving forward. If you feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me when you find difficulty to manage. With regards

My memory power is getting down day by day. I don't know what is happening. Most of the time my mood swings, I am depressed and stressed. I am getting over excited or being calm. I am not able to maintain balance between them. Can you say me the better ways to improve concentration and memory.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu may have depressive illness and medication is needed. Generally CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

My grandson is 20 month as of now he is not speaking nor responding doctors are predicting Autism can you suggest what to do.

M.Sc Applied Psychology, Advanced Diploma Child Guidance & Counselling
Psychologist, Delhi
Dear Lybrate user Please give proper stimulation and time to the child to grow and develop. It's too early to label a child as having autism. First get your grandson hearing test done, because if hearing is not appropriate then it could lead to language delay. Another thing is you can try giving him language exposure like labelling the door as door with the words marked over it. Recite rhymes to him, tell him bed time stories to him. Have patience, 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.

Hello sir, I have this weird problem where I dream In the morning all the time. Sometimes upto 6 hours a day. I make up alternate realities in my head. I dream that I'm another person with a better life Inside my head and sometimes I act like how that person would act. I unknowingly act out the conversations that" that" person is having inside my head. This is really affecting my life as I'm unable to concentrate and focus on my studies. I read somewhere that it might be maladaptive daydreaming and tried meditation but it did not help. Do I need to visit a doctor? If so what kind of Doctor? And if someone can say what kind of issue I might have It will be very helpful. Thank you for your time.

Dear lybrate-user, I think you are thinking too much. Dreams are not realities. Before concluding anything about dreams, you should know them. Day dreaming and night dreaming are two issues. Night dreaming is natural and it never lasts more than minutes. Your sleep might feel as if incomplete. That is all. The more you think about the dreams, the more you are worried. Obsession leads to worries and thereby anxiety disorder. Just leave the dreams alone and concentrate on your education and career. Take care.

I have gf since last year but now become single I feel very depression due to breakup.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

When I see a beautiful flower, It does not bring any change in quality of my life and the mind and heart remains the same, simply sad without any reason, unaffected by the presence of the said flower; similarly everyday when I go for a morning walk in a beautiful garden, I lack the feeling of being in a garden.I lack the feeling of the early morning sunlight, birds songs and slow breeze of air already present in the said garden. My this condition is since last 25 years. Presently I am 58. Since last 10 years, I am marginally (below 140 both times) Diabetic & Doctors say Medicine is not required in your case, as your exercise & diet control will suffice. I have started feeling that there is some defect in my nervous system which makes me unable to experience the feeling which ordinarily a layman experiences.Are there any suggestions or medicines to make my life simple and responsive? I am very much anxious to improve quality of my daily life for the rest of my life. Please guide me.

You are you. Don't try to change you. You can change your attitude towards life. You should change the way you look. For that you need practice. Practice to enjoy the nature. Spend any amount ot time doing that. Practice whatever change you want to bring in your life. Practice gives habbit and it remains. Negative thinking cannot propels you anywhere. It is stagnating.

I am a regular smoker are there any medicines to cure smoking problems and any ways to quit smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
yes, you can meet a doctor and s/he will prescribe the medication to help ease the craving. Just the fact that you want to give up smoking is a good starting point. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. 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 to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. 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. 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 also 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. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Its an unfortunate happening in your life. Its a natural discomfort zone that you have entered into. It would be better if I could talk to you to get to a best prescription. Homeopathy treats such love disappointments very effectively. In my practice, many of such cases start feeling better immediately after the right prescription of homeopathic remedy. But I need to talk to you for a best prescription. However, I can prescribe a very common medicine for such maladies. Please take natrum mur 1m 3 pills each three times within half an hour at the intervals of 10 mins tonight only and then discontinue. Please report in 3 days. Please seek further advice thereafter by making a consult. Please meet your good friends who can help you counsel a bit. Use homeopathy to get rid of such problem without any side effects.
