When one is on dope, one flies off to an internal fanciful world to avoid stressful situation (but reduces the coping up mechanism) there is only psychological dependence, no physical dependence of weed. Since you have just left, the flying off is halted, so the real world looks little intimidating, but is temporary phase, it will wane soon. Try doing some physical activity and focus and enjoy on the increased awareness/alertness and higher physical energies.

Dear Lybrate user, Break ups can be a tough phase to pass through. We feel like a huge loss has just occured. Make sure you give yourself the space to acknowledge what has happened. Also remeber that eveyrhting is temporary, even this pain you are going through. Try diverting yourself to tasks you love doing. Also, try to reflect on the lessons you have learnt through your jouney and the postive side of what has happened. Rationalizing what has happened helps to a great extent. Give it some time to pass through. Even after all this if your pain does not seem manageable I would recommend you to visit a professional psychologist. Usually psychologists or counselors have a lot of experience and knowledge about how to skillfully deal with life issues such as break ups. You could also connect with us online to explore the issue further and help you feel better. Be proactive in dealing with your issue. All the best!

Hello Friend, Thanks for seeking help here. As body and mind are interlinked, any emotion disturbance like anxiety or stress can easily affect the normal body functioning and cause like yours i.e palpitation, irregular heat rates, nervelessness, sleeplessness, lack of appetite etc. While you continue with the medicines, equally pay attention to your anxiety issues. May be your personal issues or professional work related tension or lifestyle disorders could be triggering unnecessary stress, which in turn creates anxious or worrying thoughts. Be positive. By adopting certain stress management plans like mediation, few lifestyle changes, dietary changes, self therapies, relaxation techniques, you can overcome such problem. Feel free to reach me online to understand the suitable stress management techniques. Be positive. You will be alright soon.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy - How It Is Helpful In Many Cases

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy - How It Is Helpful In Many Cases

For every individual, both physical and mental well-being is essential to lead a happy life. And with the advancement in medical science, not only physical illness, but a host of psychological issues both on a mild and severe level can be effectively treated.

Cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT is a talking therapy that is focused on helping patients manage their problems by helping to change their way of thinking. Though it is primarily known for assisting in dealing with issues like anxiety, depression, it proves to be equally helpful in treating physical as well as mental health problems. Keep on reading to know more about it.

What are the features?
Cognitive behavioral therapy focuses on treating problems that a person experience in his or her day to day life. This treatment is not only time-limited, for example, 6 to 20 sessions for useful results, but also follow a goal-oriented and problem-focused approach for teaching new coping skills and strategies.

What are the benefits?
Depending on the severity of the patients' condition, treating them with cognitive behavioral therapy has many benefits to offer. From helping the patients to identify their negative emotions and thoughts, to making them more capable of managing anger, cope with loss and grief and overcome sleep disorders. Even when it comes to reducing the risks of addiction relapse or dealing with post-traumatic disorders or resolving relationship difficulties, CBT can play a significant role.

How does it work?
With the help of a therapist or the professional psychologists, in this therapy, the patients learn to question, analyze, change and identify their thoughts, beliefs, attitudes that relate to their behavioral and emotional reactions which are the leading cause that keeps on troubling them. Here the therapists usually monitor and record the thoughts of the patients during different situations which helps them to better deal with their anxiety and depressions.

During the sessions, the patients are taught to identify distortions and disfigurements in their own thoughts and perceptions, to consider their thoughts as only ideas about what they are seeing or happening around them instead of considering them as facts and to refrain from assuming their thinking to be true while becoming capable of thinking from different point of views.
What illnesses can be treated by the procedure?

The majority of studies have shown the cognitive behavioral therapy to work great for treating depression and anxiety. However, it can be tailored for treating other illnesses as well, such as bipolar disorder, disorders regarding substance use, eating disorders, specific phobias, panic disorders, anxiety disorder, psychosis and schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress-related disorders and more.

So, if you are bogged down by anxiety and stress, consult a psychologist immediately. Because, it takes a psychologist to determine your state of mind best, identifying the root problem and then determining whether it's CBT that can be the ideal treatment and proceed.

I get increased breathing and palpitations, social anxiety and I just feel like running away. The doctor gave me flunil 20 mg, internal, buspin and trika sometimes.

Mental health and its treatment is often collaborative work between doctor and client. While medications are recommended for the symptoms you are experiencing, it is also essential that you also undergo therapy. Psychotherapy is beneficial when you want to make changes in your life and help yourself to grow as an individual free from being dependent and anxious about not being able to be on your own. Get in touch with a therapist around you or online. Take care.

Dear Srikant, Welcome to Lybrate. 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 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. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

These are good medicines. There is no fix duration but it is highly possible that you'll be cured within one year. I would also recommend relaxation exercises and therapy. That would be a great add-on to the medicines. No serious side effect if you stick to the dosage that has been prescribed to you.

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.
