What's the best way to quit smoking. My Friend didn't want to quit it at first place as she loves to smoke. Now I have persuaded her to quit it. Please help what should I do to make her quit smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have done a wonderful job convincing her to give up smoking so easily. But now is the tough task. Any way, she cannot stop easily, if she herself does not want to. It must ideally come from her own desire to stop. You can force her to stop by admitting her in a rehabilitation center, if they also do not allow smoking (unfortunately many centers dole out daily quota of cigarettes). If you admit her in one of the naturopathy institutes, she will have to abstain from the consumption and that will help her to quit. Do not take her out for at least one month or more. When she comes back keep her under vigil and monitor her so that neither she nor other domestic staff will pick cigarettes for her. She may experience a spurt in eating or drinking juices etc. Let her indulge in those foods for some time, only. Put her on an exercise program, and have a thorough medical check up to identify any other damage to her system. If she is unwilling to visit a counselor, get one to come home and talk to her. She can be coaxed to maintain her abstinence under the guidance of a counselor. Make her do meditation; make her stick to a regular schedule of activities, have her involved in interesting and responsible activities. Educate her about all the harmful effects of tobacco smoke and the damage it brings others in the house who smoke both the side-stream smoke and the second-hand smoke. Acupuncture is excellent treatment too.

Along with the medication you can start psychotherapy. Please talk to your doctor about it and then consult a counsellor/psychotherapist who can have a few sessions with you and spend time with you and help you to cope up with your life. All the best.

I am 16 years old. My passion is fashion designing but my parents want me to become a doctor. I have scored 95% in 10th board exams. I want to fulfill their dreams but I am not able to concentrate on studies. Unnecessary and illogical thoughts continuously come in my mind. What should I do?

Specialist in Psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
You need to make a bold decision and opt for the subjects you're interested in only! taking science if you're not interested in it will not help you fulfill your parents' dreams because you will not be able to do well. (the result is already in front of you - losing concentration/focus.) being" successful" requires one to follow their passion, not just try to live someone else's life! good luck.

Hello lybrate-user, I understand that dealing with mood related disorders are always challenging where deciding the time frame for recovery is not realistic. Psychiatrist prescribes medicine bases on various factors which are case specific and always takes review after a short priods. The reason is to modify the dosage best suitable to patient. Remember medicine itself doesn't cure everything the patient also have to adapt the healthy lifestyle. Recovery is process and medicines are part of it other than this patients should actively participate in self help groups, self care techniques. The complete treatment model consist medicines, psychotherapy, scientific approach of psychological assessment and counselling. Patient's family work as a support network and patient empowerment themselves for continuous care. To prevent relapse patients need to adhere to life style changes, medicine and counselling.

I have lost my memory power, literally due to the habit of masturbation, I can't able concentrate on my studies please help me to improve my memory power.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your masturbation has nothing to do with your memory loss. But if you think it has, it will have an impact by autosuggestion. The problem with masturbation is the addiction to it and nothing else. For good memory please do the following: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, 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. 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. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Hi Doc, I have addition of chewing tobacco (rajnigandha-tulsi) from last 5 years. Now I want to leave this but not able to left it by my self. I tried so many time but not succeed. I also tried nicotex to leave this habit but not succeed. So can you please suggest any medicine by help of which I can leave this habit in less time. Thanks in advance.

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.

You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Were you disappointed in the near past? hair loss could also be due to stress. Have you met a skin specialist? please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.

Anxiety and panic attacks are easily treatable with medications as the reason is reduced serotonin in mind (brain). Counselling will help for only very very mild cases. You have been doing injustice by not taking her to a psychiatrist for such a long time. Do not delay further and consult soon. All the best.

I am 80 years old. I developed illness one year back of forgetting things. Slowly it increased. Now I feel to forget common physical things also. Sometimes I feel afraid that some one may steal my valuables etc. I am prescribed antidepressants. What is the cure.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
It is likely, given your age and symptoms, that you are suffering from dementia. Symptoms consist of: forgetfulness, speech problems, memory loss, difficulty in carrying out activities. There is also lowness of mood, irritability and at times, fearfulness and suspiciousness. I suggest you consult a Psychiatrist at the earliest along with your caretaker or close family member. With medication and counseling you may see some improvement in your symptoms.

Hi, Get your check up done. No need to cry, everything is treatable. Increased weight and obesity can lead to low testosterone levels.[Changing your dietary patterns can make a big difference not only to your testosterone levels but to your risk for heart disease and diabetes. Start changing your diet by cutting out processed, packaged, and prepared foods. Eating “whole” foods means cutting out excess sugars, fats, preservatives, etc. Try to incorporate: More fruits and vegetables More fish and skinless poultry while limiting red meat More complex carbohydrates, including whole grains, lentils, beans, and vegetables More nuts and seeds Omega-3 fats are healthy fats found in a variety of foods. These include those found in eggs, algae, fish and mussels, but also plant oils like flaxseed, hemp and walnut oil. Healthy fats actually help to build a healthier body. Lots of water is essential to any healthy diet. In addition to hydrating you, water can also stop you from feeling hungry. Start a strength-training routine. If you have never lifted weights, used resistance bands or used weight machines, hire a personal trainer or physical therapist to teach you the proper form and procedure. If you are very weak, start with resistance bands. This gentle form of strength-training allows you to use a rubber strap to train weak muscles before lifting actual weights. Do this 2 to 3 times per week for the first 3 to 4 weeks. If you have a joint or back problem, you may want to graduate to stronger bands and stick to this form of strength training. You can increase your testosterone levels by up to 20 percent by lifting weights 3 times per week for 11 weeks. Strength training in the evenings can increase testosterone levels in the evening. These effects tend to be brief and smaller the better shape you are in. They can still help. All the best.

I have started smoking when I was 17. Now I'm 20 years old I wanna give up smoking I'm trying from past 1 nd half year. I used herbal tablets but no use I can't give up. I really wanna quit but something not letting happen. Please give me a best solution.

M.Phill
Psychologist, Chennai
Start your stop smoking plan with start s- set a quit date: choose a date within the next 2 weeks, so you have enough time to prepare without losing your motivation to quit, if you mainly smoke at work, quit on the weekend, so you have few days to adjust to the change. T- tell family, friends and co-workers that you plan to quit: let your friends and family in on your plan to quit smoking and tell them you need their support and encouragement to stop. Look for a quit buddy who wants to stop smoking as well. You can help each other get through the rough times. A- anticipate and plan for the challenges you'll face while quitting: most people who begin smoking again do so within the first 3 months. You can help yourself make it through by preparing ahead for common challenges, such as nicotine withdrawal and cigratte cravings. R- remove cigrattes & other products from your home, car and work: throw away all of your cigarettes, lighter, ashtrays and matches. Wash your clothes and freshen up anything that smells like smoke. T- talk to your doctor about getting help to quit: your doctor can prescribe medication to help with withdrawal.

Smoking 3 cigarettes daily vs. Chewing 3 paan with tobacco daily.In comparison Which is worse for health?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology

Dear, Both are equally bad. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly.

All smoking and any quantity of smoking is harmful. Just avoid it for your own sake. This is how addiction to tobacco starts: it is the occasional use and gradually over a period of time growing tolerance for the substance and developing dependence will ensnare you forever.
