Quiting smoking means that you have already understood or gone through the educative program leading the bad effects of smoking. You keep improving your knoweldge and in the same you will also get the tips of quitting smoking also. And you try to reduce the frequency slowly and stop it. If you develop any discomfort or your desire is not leeting you to quit smoking, since it is being mixed with opium, its advisable to see a psychiatrist.

Dear Lybrate user. This is called obsession. Don't worry. Obsession about a crush is common and nothing unhealthy about it. The obsessive thoughts will be there for some days and will slowly diminish. I suggest physical exercises and entertainment activity and socialization. Take care.

I'm sorry to hear about these difficulties of yours. There are various options available to help you expedite the process of recovery, both medicine based, and otherwise. Considering the problems you've mentioned, I suggest that you get in touch with a psychiatrist. The sooner you get help, the lesser the long term damage to your mind and body would be. Three years is a very long time to have trudged along with such significant issues. All the best, and take care.

There is no shortcut to success! by same analogy, there is no shortcut to increase memory power rapidly. But with efforts & persistence you can surely increase your memory in following way 1. Study/read in short time intervals of 30 minutes followed by 10 minutes break where you can stretch, do rope skipping in that 10 minutes break 2. Make notes, take plenty of notes using short forms, symbols, digits etc. 3. Revise these notes periodically, preferably once every 3 days 4. Make mnemonics, use them frequently, revise frequently 5. Whenever your free, sitting idle, close your eyes & try to memorize what you have read or revised earlier in the day 6 do regular yoga & pranayama which increase your mental stability, improve neuroplasticity & thus give you better memory. Good luck!

General Physician,
YOu have to use willpower to put the phone away. And try these study tips 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful 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.

I am smoking from last 4.5 year 7-10 cigarette a day but now im try to quitting this, is lungs affected or its normal, ant suggest me how to clean my lungs also.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The lining in the throat is filled with tiny hair like structures called cilia. Cilia are tiny hair-like organelles that reside on the surface of cells. There are two types of cilia: motile and non-motile. The former continuously move in a wave-like fashion in a single direction, while the latter function as sensory organs that respond to stimulus. The most common reason to suffer damaged or paralyzed cilia, however, is smoking. Normally, healthy ones in the bronchial tubes work in sync with specialized cells that produce mucous to capture and remove impurities from the lungs. Smokers, on the other hand, are subjected to about 7,000 toxic chemicals in cigarette smoke, including arsenic, methane, and carbon monoxide. This damages the organelles, and dirt, environmental pollutants, and toxins from cigarette smoke remain in the lungs. Furthermore, these toxins migrate from the lungs via the bloodstream to other organs. In response to the presence of excess irritants, mucous cells in the lungs become stimulated to produce more mucous than they normally would. Of course, with damaged cilia, the lungs have no means of moving the mucous out. This usually results in an unproductive cough. In fact, the damage caused by smoking leaves the smoker at significantly higher risk for frequent respiratory infections, or chronic bronchitis. Continued smoking may eventually lead to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema) or lung cancer. In fact, smoking eventually destroys the cilia, which may then be displaced by an excessive number of basal cells or squamous cells. Over time, these cells may become cancerous. They may also become rogue, escaping through lung tissue and invading other parts of the body. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself.

My question is Every Time I want to study more but when I take the book in the hand I am not able to study.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are into your late adolescence and during this time there will be a lot of distractions caused by the hormonal imbalances. That will last exactly for two years and then it will stabilize. When that is done, concentration will improve. Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. At your age and otherwise also you can have distractions easily and the mind will tend to be occupied with things that interest it. It is possible that your academic pursuits may not hold your attention much. If you have done an aptitude test and career guidance counseling you will be able to know whether the chosen disciplines are what suits your natural skills and talents. You can follow these simple rules: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises (in fact Yoga has some good exercises for focus and concentration like looking at your thumb and at candle light), etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. Afternoons are a bad time to do study by reading. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. In a calm disposition concentration is much better and you will be able to study better. You may need to make notes and reduce the quantity of material to be studied and that will make it easier. Today the syllabus is very heavy and so it is difficult but you must find ways of giving more important topics more of your time and attention and that way you will prioritize your effort.

I am really depressed. And I have tried everything but I think I should take medication.
You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

I am 21 years old, m smoking cigarettes since 6 years. From last 2 months I have chest pain.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This chest pain is not a good sign but do go for a medical check up and ascertain the nature and cause. 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. If these suggestions are still difficult because you are a chain smoker, I suggest you admit yourself for detoxification in a hospital for two weeks or in a center for 6 months and through their program it will become a lot easier.

Hi lybrate-user, to be fit you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. You need to exercise daily for 30 minutes either brisk walk, jogging or aerobics. You need to drink lots of water, eat fresh fruits and green leafy vegetable. Have a balanced meal - protein, minerals vitamins in right quantity. And not to forget to have adequate sleep of 6-8 hours. If you are willing we can make a diet chart for you.

I was In jail for 3 year
Now I am out and have to face the world
I am getting very low
What I do.
You have served your jail term and paid for the crime. Society may still have a lot of doubts about you, even if you have reformed. Let that be so. You have created this situation, rightfully or not is a different matter, and must learn to live with that situation. This can easily take you back to a life of crime but you must refrain from doing so. You are in fact, getting a new opportunity to initiate a fresh lease of life, and you must go about it systematically, in spite of the obstacles. If there are emotional matters running through your mind, as would be expected, meet with a counselor and deal with them so that they do not hamper your new plans. You must also learn to forgive, and make amends for your past deeds, where possible, and move on. Life will be difficult for you, but that is exactly why you must be prepared for it and take it in your stride. Meet with a priest too, and start a good spiritual life: this can be a tremendous boost to your plans and to accept all the challenges with gratitude. Learn to be kind, and if the prison term and life have damaged any aspects of you, work with a professional to heal those wounds too. Here is a very inspiring and true tale to encourage you. A man who committed two murders, attempted two murders too, a hardcore drug addict, a failed student, very ill physically, and a heavy smoker who had spent five years in jail, was rehabilitated by me and is now happily married and is the director of an institute! this is absolutely true and believe me, you can do it too!

Sexual thoughts come naturally to everybody. But sometimes the timing of these sexual thoughts and the frequency with which they haunt you everyday may leave you restless. Here are a few tips to help you get rid of sexual thoughts. Accept the fact – You are getting these sexual thoughts because you are a normal and healthy human being. If you were having some mental problems or if you were having any illness, you might not get any sexual thoughts at all. So getting them is a sign of health. Accept this fact first. Stop feeling guilty about sex: Sex is a natural biological phenomenon. Any creature on this earth has to indulge in sex for its survival. Sexual thoughts are a natural way in which body and mind is getting prepared for sexual act in future. Hence if you are getting sexual thoughts, you are not committing a sin. Stop feeling guilty about it and just chill. Proper knowledge – Right knowledge about sex thoughts is very important. Get to know the difference between Normal and obsessive sexual thoughts. If you think you are getting normal sexual thoughts, then there is nothing to worry. But if you think your sexual thoughts are obsessive in nature, then try the following tips – Respect yourself – Even if you are getting uncontrolled sex thought, there is nothing to worry. Everything can be corrected. But you need to start respecting yourself. Whenever you get such thoughts, stop blaming yourself or blaming your life. Make sure sexual thoughts are harmless – Whenever you have sexual thoughts, make sure not to act on them. Just come out of your room to an open place or stay away from your object of your sex thought . Stop watching porn – You are already engulfed in sex thoughts and over that you are watching porn means, you are not helping yourself. Get a strong mind control and stop watching porn. It will only worsen your problems. Go and meet people – Most of the times, excessive sexual thoughts is accompanied with fear to go outside and mingle with people around you. Conversely, talking to people and mingling with them will keep you in real world and help you get rid of sex thoughts. Do not restrict yourself to your room – If you do not get anybody to engage with, when you are getting those obsessive thoughts, at least come out of your room and have some fresh air outside. More you see the real world around you, more chances that you will not dwelve in those thoughts. Exercise – Gym / yoga / jogging / walking / outdoor games – anything that you like, just stick on to it. A good physical health will boost your self confidence and brings about mental balance. Jogging early in the morning is a good way of self analysis and planning the day better. Pranayama – Pranayama helps to gain control over your breathing pattern and in turn helps to control mind. Learn how to do a simple pranayama Meditation – Meditation helps you to concentrate on things that are important in your life. It helps you to streamline your energy for the goals of your life. Spirituality is the way forward for you. Embrace it. Pray for mental strength and you will definitely win. Good books – Good spiritual books, spiritual magazines, self help books, and biographies of people whom you admire the most – like Steve Jobs, Swamy Vivekananda etc. Collect them and start spending at least one hour per day. Have a goal in life – Determine where you want to see yourself in another 5 years, 10 years and so on. Start working towards your goals. Let these sexual thoughts be there at one side, while you run towards your aim. Have a disciplined lifestyle •Get up early in the morning, do some exercise or jogging, bath, pranayama, meditation, reading, breakfast, work / college. •Before going to bed, plan your next day. •Always use alarm clocks. •Fix a time for everything, even for smaller things like watching tv, facebooking etc. Do not do anything which is not in your plans. Avoid certain foods Avoiding junk food, aerated drinks, onion, garlic, excess sweets, non veg, egg and oily food for a while helps you to control sex thoughts. As per Indian belief system, these types of food are Tamasik in nature. I am not saying to avoid them totally, but avoid temporarily till you gain a good hold of your life. Avoid excess of alcohol and smoking. Regards,

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Addiction to nicotine gum is a common phenomena. Nothing to worry about that. Understand that nicotine gum is not that addictive or harmful as cigarette. Therefore, slowly reduce the quantity of nicotine gums and don't worry. Take care.

Hi, I have multiple lipoma in my body, especially in hand. I consulted many doctors in allopathy but nobody had any treatment and suggested to do surgery or leave it like that. If there is any treatment which can make it melt then please suggest. I have developed this lipoma from more than 5-6 years.
