Sexologist,
Day dreaming is common at this age. Masturbation is also normal and does not cause physical problems or sexual problems. Also do not give any importance to advertisement that mention that masturbation cause health problems or destroys life, and masturbation does not require any treatment. it will not cause problem in married life if you maintain confidence. If you want to reduce it, you should involve yourself in studies, games and hobbies. Also try not to remain alone most of time and avoid sexy magazine etc.

Hello, myself junad here, I will smoke 10 cigrets daily but ny family doesn't no about this. I am facing max coughing in aproxx 4 weeks in every month. Wht should I do.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, it will be much better if you can quit smoking. You may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.

Hi lybrate-user, if its depression you can start off medicine with a psychiatrist. Clearing ssc may be your goal but thats not the last thing to look forward in life, always keep a back up, I am sure there are umpteen no. Jobs that you can be selected for, so work hard but don't be disheartened you are worthy of everything, feel confident, failure success are part of life what matters I how we handle it, give your best shot if it does not work out just switch to something you like or career of your choice other than this. Take psychotherapy from a psychologist. Consult for same. All the best.

People say I'm soo innocent. I hate people too.&i m very calm. I fed up with people. I dnt want stay in world. please help me.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Dear Lybrate User, I am very concerned to see you in this condition. Have you ever taken any professional help for this condition? If not, please consult a Counsellor at the earliest. The Counsellor will help you to understand what is happening to you and what are the causes. I guess that you have had a difficult childhood. Probably your emotions and feelings were not validated by your loved ones. All those suppressed emotions are making you hyper sensitive now. Since you have attempted suicide twice, then it is clear that you are desperate to leave this world which seems an unhappy place for you. I think, suicide is not a solution, it might create more problems for you. It is advisable to consult a Counsellor at the earliest. The Counsellor will listen to you and will accept you unconditionally. The Counsellor will also help you to understand what is happening to you and what is the cause behind your negative thinking. By modifying your thoughts and behaviour you may bring some pleasant change in your life. The Counselling process will help you to explore other options. All the best and take care.

My wife suffers from a mild type of split personality. With the outside world she is polite and well behaved but with me her husband, she about twice a month goes into shouting and screaming on imaginary issues and also hurls object at me in a violent manner. She goes into a crazy fit on relly small issues.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
What were you dong all these years suffering and letting her suffer these episodic bouts of violence? or are you suggesting that this is a recent phenomenon? you must take her to a psychiatrist immediately and work with a counselor in tandem with the medication, if she needs it. You must also track the episodes of these acts to see what could be stimulating this behavior, if it depends on circumstances or environmental factors. With age one? s defenses do come down and what she might have been able to contain in her past may not be easy now. Which means there may have been indication earlier that either you did not notice or may have ignored/misread under the label of menopause. But there is certainly a serious concern, if the behavior you claim is accurate and as described.

Dear, You must be able to understand Memory, 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. 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. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Take care.

I was a marijuana user after using it for over 5 years I started experiencing strange things like hearing voices and felling that people are talking about me. I consulted a doc and he diagnosed with substance induced psychosis and prescribed me with medication however after taking these medicines for over 2.5 years im feeling better now. Some of the medicines which I take are sizdon pactine solian depakote. Now im off such symptoms however im not able to focus on a single job I lose it in the training itself I basically do not understand the training and will not be able to focus concentrate or understand things during training. I have swapped over 20 jobs just attending training pls give me a solution. And if I start smoking marijuana again will it affect my mental health?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
The doctor who has been treating you seems to have done a very good job. Based on what you say, it seems like psychosis induced by Cannabis and persisting even after you have stopped cannabis. So, if you go back to cannabis again the old symptoms have high chances of recurrence. Regarding your inability to pursue job, after training. It needs to be addressed by psychosocial rehabilitation. Discuss with your psychiatrist about your aims, your mental capacity in pursuing job, etc. All the best.

I have 3 day nightfall in week so I feel very guilty too see this, I am very depressed how I resolve this problem, pls give some advice to resolve my problem.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Night fall or wet dreams is a very common occurrence among men, especially among adolescents .This condition is characterized by involuntary ejaculation during sleep in the night or in the early hours of the morning. The frequency of these nocturnal emissions varies from person to person, most men only experience this condition in their adolescent years but few may suffer from it all their lives. So as you can see this condition is very common and nothing really to worry about except in very few cases where it is very frequent spread over a long period of time. Exercising regularly and avoiding spicy foods can lessen the frequency of nightfall. Studies have shown that using testosterone based drugs can increase nocturnal emissions, so try avoiding these if you suffer from nightfall. Here are a few more things that you can try to limit it – start jogging or brisk walking for at least 30 minutes every day. avoid consumption of any liquid for at least 2 hours before going to sleep. go for urination just before going to bed. avoid watching porn or erotic chats etc. Start listening to soothing music which gives peace of mind and gives soothing effects like the meditation gives. start reading good books at the time to keep the brain relaxed for a sound sleep. You should avoid constipation because an upset digestive system also sometimes causes night fall. Its little awkward but it works. Start doing masturbation once in a while may help control night fall. For query, consult

Dear, Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Quit habits strictly. Seems like you have oral submucous fibrosis (osmf). Kindly consult an oral & maxillo facial surgeon in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need conservative or surgical management for mouth opening depending upon the stage of osmf. Advise full mouth opening, ballooning exercise & side to side movement of the jaw. Wrap 25 to 30 ice-cream sticks, make a bundle, put it between upper & lower front teeth for 15 minutes thrice a day increase 1 sticks each day.

How can I blow away my laziness and upset life I am not able to concentrate on my work help me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu have to develop mind control and meditaion will hlep. 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.

How to Release Negative Emotions
Do you sometimes feel oppressed by negative emotions such as fear, anxiety, anger, shame, worthlessness, or depression? Are you open to discover a way to manage them ? and transcend them ? that requires no medication nor years of psychotherapy?

Ancient wisdom traditions of the East ? such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism ? have put a lot of study into the human body and mind, for thousands of years, with the goal of transcending human suffering. With centuries of devoted experiments, revelations, and insight, they discovered that all these negative emotions are not natural to our true being ? they belong to the realm of the ego, our mistaken identity.

Following a certain set of contemplative practices and some lifestyle tweaks, these masters discovered their true being, and saw that in this place the negative emotions do not live.
Out of their compassion and sense of oneness with all beings, they then spent their life teaching us how to find this space of freedom, of peace, of bliss. The insights and techniques that I share in this article come from the Buddhist traditions.

Seeing Clearly
I like to call this the L-I-E-R method (label, introspect, examine, release), because it deals directly with the negative feeling and the lie it carries. It?s not a pretty word but does the job as a mnemonic device.

Label. Recognize that fear has arisen, and label it in your mind. The words you use are important. Don?t say ?I?m afraid? or ?I have fear?; instead say ?fear has arisen?, or ?fear is here?. Do you see how just changing the words already creates a different perspective and more space?
Introspect. Take one to three deep breaths, and bring your attention inside yourself ? this means don?t pay attention to the object, person or circumstance that triggered the emotion, but rather attend to the emotion itself. Accept that the feeling is there.
Examine. Study the feeling deeply: its causes, effects, and nature. Here are some questions to guide your contemplation:
Causes: what exactly triggered this feeling in this moment? There is no need to go to the remote causes of it in your childhood or whatever. For now just stay with what?s happening right here. Once you find the core assumptions or mindsets that are at the root of the feeling, challenge them: is this the only way to see this situation? Is this an empowering way of looking at things?

Effects: how does it feel in my body? Where does the feeling reside in my body? What memories and thoughts swim around this feeling in my mind? What are my thoughts and feelings about this feeling?

Nature: Look inside and ask yourself ?what is this feeling?? Don?t use words to explain, just keep the question alive. Does this feeling have a substance, a color, a size? What is it made of? What?s the vibration of it? Contemplate how this feeling is impermanent. It was not here a few minutes ago ? where did it come from? It will not be here after a few minutes ? where will it disappear into?

Spend as much time as you need in step three. Learn as much as possible about the negative feeling. We are slaves of what we don?t understand. See if this emotion is the real problem, or if it is something else underneath it.

Release. Let it be whatever it is ? but don?t create stories and interpretations around it. And let it go. I can?t tell you how to let go, but intuitively every human being knows how.
The outcome of this process is fourfold: clarity (about what the emotion is); composure (to be with the feeling without being overwhelmed); self-knowledge (understanding the nature of the emotion, the triggers, and the effects in your body); liberation (a sense of separation between the emotion and yourself).

For step number three, you may encounter certain concepts or assumptions that are at the root of the negative feeling. Or perhaps certain subconscious ?decisions? of looking at things a certain way. In this example (fear of rejection), it may be self-judgement about your feeling of worth, or perhaps an attachment to an idea that you need the approval of certain person to ?confirm? that you are worthy of love and value. It may be useful, here, to spend some more time and thoroughly challenge these assumptions and choices.

In some cases, also, the emotion is indeed pointing out to something that needs some attention in your life; then you may need to take some external action, to change something. The ?external fixing? does not prevent this internal process, nor does going through this process requires any external passivity.

After going through this you may find that the negative emotion has already disappeared, lost power, or transformed into something else.
