Dear , anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

If you are liking to keep to yourself. Keep to yourself. Do not resist or struggle to be otherwise. This too will pass. You should keep in mind that he/she will always remain with you in your memory. You can always recall him, when you want. All the best.

Five Long-Term Effects of Alcohol Abuse:

When many people think about the problems that alcohol abuse can cause, they think about drunk driving and the effects it has. However, drunk driving is not the only problem alcohol abuse causes. Alcohol abuse can lead to a number of health conditions. In fact, alcohol abuse has been linked to at least 60 health conditions. Below is a list of the long-term effects of alcohol abuse.


Chronic alcohol abuse can lead to liver inflammation. This inflammation can eventually lead to a condition called cirrhosis. Cirrhosis causes scar tissue to build up in the liver. It is estimated that one out of 10 people who drink alcohol heavily will eventually develop cirrhosis. Keep in mind that women are more likely to develop cirrhosis than men.


Many forms of cancer have been linked to excessive alcohol consumption, including liver, breast, colon and prostate. The reason alcohol use can increase the risk of cancer is because the body converts it into acetaldehyde. The acetaldehyde is a carcinogen, or cancer-causing agent.

Suppresses the Immune System

Excessive alcohol intake can weaken the immune system. This will make it a lot easier for you to develop a serious illness. People who have a weak immune system are at an increased risk for developing illnesses like pneumonia. In fact, getting drunk decreases the body's ability to fight off illnesses for 24 hours.

Heart Attack

Excessive alcohol intake can make it easier for the platelets to clot. This can cause blood clots to form, which can increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. There was a study done in 2005 by a team of scientists at Harvard University that involved heart attack survivors. The scientists found that people who drank heavily were twice as likely to die.
Alcohol abuse can also lead a heart condition called cardiomyopathy. This condition causes the heart muscle to weaken, and the heart will eventually fail.


Many people drink to help themselves feel better when they are depressed. However, studies have shown that alcohol abuse can actually worsen depression. On the other hand, many heavy drinkers notice their symptoms improve after they quit drinking.
Alcohol abuse can wreak havoc on a person's life and health. It can cause a heart attack, cirrhosis, depression and cancer. It may also weaken the immune system.

I knew since a long time that I have a habit of lying since childhood. I find comfort in lies. Sometimes I lie unnecessarily. My parents were strict so I found it easier to lie than to confront honesty. This habit has gotten so deep in me now that my relationships are affected with it now. I thought this was something I could control. I hadn't lied in 3 months. I thought I could now change my life style. But I've come to realize that Now I'm lying unnecessarily. I feel helpless really since I can't bring anyone to trust me now. My relationship is over because of my lies even when I was completely loyal and I only wanted the best to happen to us. Earlier I lied about my past because I didn't want him to judge me and I didn't want my past to interfere in my present. Somehow things had gotten a bit fine but today after 3 months I again tried lying and he caught me and ended everything. I am not a teenager I am an adult. I feel really depressed due to what lying has done to me. Please help me. I don't want anyone to think of me as a bad person when I'm not so I lie, eventually I become a bad person by lying. If I can't correct this lying how can I ever live a normal and happy life? I'm ruining other's life too. He is in depression because of me. I ruined his career and his dreams. I want to help him but since I'm the root cause. I can nowhere be near him. Please help me. I can't live with this burden. I've always lived for acceptance and therefore I've made a lot of mistakes and lying just adds cherry to the cake. My feelings are true and in no way are less than the feelings he has for me. But now I'm just a liar who can never be trusted no matter what good I do in my life.

General Physician,
This is a personality disorder and you have to train your mind to be stable and if you cannot do it alone go for a counselling. Do meditaion and yoga for mind control.

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. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

When you Feel Anxious …

1. Relax your breathing. Take deliberate slow, deep breaths, and feel the tension begin to subside.

2. Clear your mind of disturbing thoughts. Remind yourself of all your strengths, of those occasions when you’ve coped in the past, and of things you still have to look forward to.

3. Shut off the critical parent in your head. We all have weaknesses and make mistakes. Don’t abandon, attack, or reject yourself. You need to support, and to nurture, yourself.

4. Practice self-care. Temporarily step back from the stressful situation. Maybe listen to some music, or message a friend, or play with your pet, or go for a walk.

5. Respond – don’t react. You don’t have to do anything right now. Take a moment to take control of your feelings and your thoughts. Then assess the situations, and think through different options.

6. You may have to put up protective boundaries. We often don’t have the energy to give at these times – so withdraw from people who would drain your energy.

7. A burden shared is a burden halved. Share how you feel with someone who cares. It’s good to ask for help when you’re worried or afraid.

Business takes time to establish. You have to be patient and make sure that whatever has to be done, is done and in good measure. Initial investment too will be high without timely returns. If you are not handling your business well, then you need some consultancy from a person with the acumen. Talk with someone who has the knowhow and see what you are doing wrong. Collections are also something that will cause a lot of delays and you will need surplus investment to meet the running costs. Perhaps your business plan was not well thought out. Here too there are consultants with whom it will be wise to discuss your business​.

I can not concentrate in my study, to get better concentration what should I do? Pls help.

Don't panic the more you work out your brain the better you process and remember information. Try to do different activities what makes you happy. Learn to play any instrument, make art, drawing, pottery. Learn dance and another language which you don't know. Try to do brain exercise. Every single activity give your brain extra challenge and want extra effort from you. This will give you a healthy brain which can do anything. And for concentration point a dot on a blank white sheet pointed it on a wall just straight to your eyes while you sit on a chair. And you can try any other concentration exercise daily.

Dear, confidence is a relative terminology. Confidence differs in relation to what you are approaching. Confidence is directly related to experience. The more your experience in any matter, the more your confidence is. Therefore, rethink. If you want confidence in approach, try approaching more and more.

Sir I have a problem. When I got tensed my sweat was released more from my body. And I got nerves. Then my brain doesn't work. And when I see my friends if they are done something great I feel under depression.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your tension has to do with fear it seems. Your comparing yourself with your friends? achievements and your feeling like an under achiever is also not a good sign of your condition. That will indeed lead to depression. You must immediately meet with a counselor and deal with this fear soon. If it is of recent origin, you can easily pin point it and deal with it. But if it is from your past, then your parents will be able to help you and they could be useful when meeting the counselor. You are converting a fear into a sweat as an adaptation which will not working for you. The counselor will help you deal with fear and other emotions and when that is sorted out many of your problems will disappear. You have to be cooperative and follow all the instructions. You are very unique and there is no one like you, ever, and there will be no one like you in the future, ever! So do not compare yourself with others: there will always be someone better than you and you need to accept that. If they have made good with an opportunity that you also had then learn what they did different and you can do the same: learning will happen all your life even unto death. Do not compete with others to lose but to appreciate and learn.

Just observe her hearing ability, mental ability and social interaction. If all is normal then hold on for few months. Just do some speech and language stimulation with books and toys.

It seems to me that you lack self- confidence and in need of proper career guidance by a qualified person who can assess your strength and weanesses, abilities, interests and personality characeristics by using psychometric tests and personalized interviews, and put you on the right track. Stop asking guidance from other people. If you can not find such a career guidance counsellor around your location, I can help you through paid consultation platform of lybrate.

How to get rid of depression caused by various reasons while doing research program, i.e., PhD. One of the reasons is that the research supervisor keeps stretching my duration unreasonably although I have done my part to meet the minimum requirement of receiving research degree (PhD.)? He knows that I am financially drained out:(

How do you think about your research and supervisor is need to be evaluated. Push yourself to do more rational and practical thinking. Everyone has his own way to work. Try to know more about the way your supervisor works what exactly he wants. Provide practical evidences to your thoughts related to your supervisor. You can also improve the way of your communication with him. It is the best way to connect with someone. You are going to learn a lot through this experience. Think positive sides of this experience rather than thinking of difficulties.

I get angry easily. I was not like that. I was a cool boy. For few years if something happen I get angry and behave like a beast. I shout loudly and I feel like I would hit that person. Whatever I do then is not natural. When I get down then sometimes I get headaches and feel uneasy. What should I do now?

You have to control anger by observing silent nature, meditation, chanting liking mantra for limited time every day. Avoid spicy, fried, junk food items, take sufficient rest-sleep, do regular light exercises. Have a check up for any bp problem etc. If you are taking any chemical psycho related drug, then consult your doctor.
