I am addicted to drugs since 3 years I can not leave it now. Is there any way to leave it.

I am addicted to drugs since 3 years I can not leave it now. Is there any way to leave it.
It will feel like you cannot leave it but you can with some perseverance. You do not mention what type of drugs you abuse but when you enter hard drugs, you are into the troublesome area of addiction. I think that the impulse control under the influence these substances can be very limited. The danger of you doing more harmful things can be heightened. Before you get into that kind of behavior, you please quit at the earliest. To enable that I suggest that you go for immediate rehabilitation to a recovery center and stay there for at least 6 months until you are all clear and clean. Even after that you must continue addiction counseling for at least three years to completely remove the physical and psychological conditioning and craving. You will be told and taught new lifestyles, schedules, habits etc. to totally recover. You must work on the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factor and the script issue. Many people will not be able to resolve drug addiction in particular if they do not reach their ‘Hitting Rock Bottom’, i.e. the worst stage in their addiction to finally want to reform. Unfortunately for some unlucky few that can be death. So do be careful and do not delay seeking help now. If there are relapses, do not get too alarmed and give up. You must again persevere and fight this battle until you come out victorious. Your family members and medical fraternity must be there for you right through this recovery. You will also need to attend Narcotics Anonymous meetings for a long time too after the treatment is over.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, you should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.

I just broke up with my fiancee who also happens to be my business partner. We were living in. Still have to see him everyday after he coldly walked out on me (rather asked me to move out of my house as his parents were living with us). His issues with me were blown out of proportion by his parents resulting in a bad break up. I hv quit my start up with him. Am job hunting. I'm 29 and i'm scared I won't find a good life partner now. I'm depressed. I get anxiety attacks.

Have self respect, this person doesn't deserve you, also you are fortunate that you didn't marry him, and you got timely reminder. Just relax and move on in life, throw them out of your house and don't give them your house. Don't bow down to his dictates, and understand what would have been the situation if you married him. Be quick, relax you will find good partner and man of your life. If you cant handle yourself meet an expert marriage and relationship coach.For further assistance you can concern me privately.

You will rue the day you become obese and have difficulty knocking down your weight. The whole world is fighting an almost losing battle with the bulge. As long as you are active and fit, do not worry about your emaciated looks. If you seriously want to put on weight, you can put on muscle mass. This can be achieved by going to a gym and the instructor or coach will help you in this regard: as a general rule, if you do brisk exercise you will develop muscle and if you do slow stretching exercises you will tone your body. Weight bearing exercise, even though it is on the slow side will generally, add much desirable weight. Food wise any increase in carbohydrates will tend to add to your bulk. By nature, if your basic metabolic rate is high, whatever you eat will easily get metabolized and will spare nothing to add to your weight. You could learn meditation and yoga to slow down your metabolism and that will also make you a calm person. Whatever happens, do not neglect your physical fitness with sufficient exercise, eat well, sleep well, be stress-free as much as possible, and have a good collection of friends.

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.

Depression can be reactive, due to external issues like financial crisis and interpersonal problems or depression can be endogenous, i.e due to changes within oneself, which happens due to altered neurotransmission in the mind. Endogenous depression can be very well treated by antidepressants which restore the changes, kindly consult a psychiatrist and seek remedy. All the best.

Most often children just need a little more incentive to get them talking 1. Eat something your child loves in their presence with out offering them any. When your child indicates that they would like some, model a more advanced way for them to make the request, whether it is using a sign, a word or a simple phrase. For example, if your child points and grunts to the candy, model the sign for candy then wait and see if your child will imitate the sign candy. If your child simply keeps pointing and grunting take his/her hand and help him make the sign for candy then reward him/her with the candy. 2. Play with something your child loves but don’t offer to share. For instance if your child loves playing with playdough and wants to participate in the fun, you could model the /p/ sound for “please” or “play,” or you could model the signs for please or play. If your child can already say one word model a two word phrase for him/her to imitate like, “play please.” 3. At meal time and snack time give your child bite size portions, rather than dishing up a whole serving for them, then wait for them to request more. If no attempt is made model the sign “more,” help them make the sign, or model the /m/ sound for them to imitate. 4. Limit your child’s access to things like the t. V. Toys, food, or going outside. Set it up so they have to make a request or ask for help to access these things. You may accomplish this by putting favorite things up high or locked up. 5. Play turn-taking games such as rolling the ball back and forth, or pushing a car back and forth. Once your child expects another turn hold the car or ball and wait. Look at him/her expectantly if no sign or verbal request is made, model an appropriate request such as the sign for “ball,” the /b/ sound, the word “ball” or “ball please”… 6. Use tight containers to store things in. When your child indicates he/she wants a cookie you might hand him/her the cookie jar (tightly sealed of course), when he/she can’t open it and hands it back to you make him/her sign open or help. 7. Use wind up toys or other toys that are difficult for kids to operate on their own. Wind up a wind-up toy your child gets a kick out of then hand it to them when they want a turn, wait for them to request help by using the sign or the word to operate the toy. 8. Blow bubbles then screw the lid on tightly and hand it back to your child for their turn. Wait for them to request help with a a sign or a word. Model the sign or word if necessary Consult Speech Pathologist.

Hi you are doing good. Human brain can concentrate on one thing only for 40 - 45 minutes and there after concentration degrades. This range differs with individuals, like in your case its 1/2 hr. Quality of time spent in studies is more important than span of time spent. Its good you know your limit, take break every 1/2 hr and make sure you come back to your studies after the planned break. Regarding your tension, (may be anxiousness) we can plan better coping strategies for you in counselling sessions. Also we can discuss smart and sound study methods for effective studies. All the best!

Hello lybrate-user, hope you are doing well. Sorry that you are feeling low, and not getting on well with daddy. Although, I bet that you love your dad. Focusing on how you are feeling, well, is there something that you have going on in your mind or life that is distracting from living a peaceful life. There could be a person, situation or I circumstance that must have affected you in a negative way. As far as being a mobile addict is concerned, I do believe that everything that we do in life, whether it is eating habit or spending time on something for long duration, this can be a cause of distress. Everything used out of proportion can be harmful. However, I do understand that you are young, and you have a vibrant life, to spice up your life, may be you can set an objective to achieve in a day, and be organized with your time and achievements through the day. This will help you to acknowledge your rewards, and it will help you to use your time profitably and productively. Secondly, if there is anything that is bothering you, then you can certainly seek expert advice or help. I am always ready to help. Hope this answer helps. Have a great day. Regards.

Dear lybrate user, your headache and body pain might be because of a number of reasons like, lack of sleep, stress, lack of proper food, vitamin deficiencies etc. You need to consult a doctor, who will check you physically and only then will be able to diagnose the real cause of your discomfort. It is advisable to visit your doctor first and follow his/her advise. Later on once you start feeling better physically, then again check with yourself, if you still feel depressed or sad then you may consult a counsellor, who will help you to get rid of your negative thoughts. Take care.

They are called nocturnal emissions and are perfectly normal. Masturbation, by itself is a healthy form of sexual outlet, unless, it becomes compulsive. So don't have negative attitude towards the same. If you don't masturbate regularly excessive semen will come out at night or other time due to physiological changes in the brain electrical activity. There will be no reduction in weight or your memory power

There seems to be a rift between your mother and your wife. Which according has made your mother feel depressed. Firstly when you say she goes into depression thinking about the previous fights means some overthinking is happening the real cause of the problem may be hidden elsewhere. Explain it to her that overthinking is also a problem nothing positive comes from it and ask her to focus to real issues as in like why the fight happened what she can do to avoid such fights and when both the party discusses it with u, you can act as a mediator. Hope this helps.
