Dear lybrate user. The more you try hard to forget past and related people, the more you will remember them. Ignore the past, ignore those people and engage in your day to day activities. Automatically you will forget everything. Take care.

Mene 8 days pehle smoking quit krdi h fir bhi meri stamina kam hi h & ab heart attack ka chance kam bhi ho gya h na?

Yes, you have saved yourself well in time that you can recover from all the damages from the smoking you have indulged in so far. Stamina will come along if you exercise gradually increasing the length of the work out. Breathe through your nostrils only when exercising and do mostly aerobic exercises. Congratulations for your excellent decision and keep it up for life.

I doctor my story is pretty long. I think I may have anxiety and panic attacks. I would be in a situation where I would be asked questions in a meeting in office and I would forget what I have to say. My symptoms include: -cold hands and feet -tight stomach -dry mouth -clenched jaws -unable to understand what other person is saying and unable to relate to it -shakiness -weak resistance to cold -talking fast and often rushing through things -loss of short term memory -blurry vision -confusion -breathlessness -suspicion -Even after bowel movement I would not feel fresh and would often feel I can still go again but when I go nothing comes out -and when I am not in a stressful situation all these symptoms would diminish it would be there but not as exaggerated. Please tell.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Seems to be generalized anxiety disorder. General anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured and you can stop the medicines if any. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Take care.

Please provide me the medicine that I can give him by mixing into the food and serve to him. I want that he doesn't come to know about this as he will not take medicine. So provide me the answers accordingly.

No one will give you those medicines because it has to be carefully monitored and the person needs to know about what he is consuming, especially antabuse for the alcoholism problem. The medicine for the cigarette smoking is also given only by prescription from a doctor who has to examine him. If you want to help him otherwise these are the things you can do: Ideally he must want to stop these habits. Otherwise it will become a futile exercise. If these habits have become too much then you will need to admit him into a center for rehabilitation. He will need to be there for at least 6 months and they will do detoxification and treatment for the addictive nature followed by extensive counseling. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit him by force. This will however, require the family’s consent.

Your lungs can have about 6 liters of air in them while you ordinarily take in only 3 to 3.5 liters only. Practice deep inhalations and gradual exhalations like they do in Pranayam. Deep breathing opens up the idle rooms or air spaces in the lungs so that you can inhale more air inside. That will enable larger chest expansion after some time.

Certain antidepressants can help prevent anxiety and reduce the frequency and severity of panic attacks, but are not used for immediate relief during an attack. Frequently used antidepressants are the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) such as Prozac, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, and Zoloft.

Sir/maam I am 23 years, I want to quit smoking. I tried many times but failed. I smoke 1 pack or less everyday. Is there any medication to stop smoking? I am 6 ft tall and my weight is 86 kg. Does quitting cigarettes make me gain more weight?

First of all l feel really happy for you guys who have guts to digest the truth that habitual smoking is an addiction and I am very much sure that guys like you although understand the disatrous effectss of habitual smoking but out of their craving or compulsion are unable to do so.But I wll try to figure out a clear picture in front of you and let you decide how to quit this habit as I think you are strong enough to quit this habit as you have a strong mind to accept this addiction. 1.Priyam,you might have started moking 4-5 year back .Just think it yourself that was this the age to start smoking.This Is the age to relish your time,your age,free from all tensions just enjoying your Parents luxuries but you opted the other way,putting yourself into the darkness of fumes,Smoking .You just think how much money of your parents you have wasted till now. 2.Just ssee the poor people around you who cant make up for one time meals.Just think that if you were not ssmoking ,how many of them would you have fed during last 2 years and try to feel that happiness that you must have got and now you are deprived off. 3. Tell your friends, family, and other people you’re close to that you’re trying to quit. They can encourage you to keep going, especially when you’re tempted to light up. I uggest you to join a SUPPORT GROUP of people who have quit smoking by hearing their experiences with you. 4..You can quit. All you need is the proper motivation. Maybe a visit to a pulmonary clinic might help. Take a long look around at the people in the lobby. Many of them are like you (and me), they smoked for years and always had the excuse that it was just too hard to quit. Just think, if you keep lighting up, you can end up just like them. If you really want an eye-opener, go to a hospital and volunteer your services for a month or so. Every time you light up a cigarette, you get one step closer to that for an end. Be strong. You can beat this habit just like millions of people do every year. You just need a stronger reason to quit - at least a stronger reason that the one you use to defend your smoking. Good luck. I know what it feels like to be on both sides of this thing. 5.. It's important for you to reprioritize your spare time that would have been spent smoking. Try a new hobby, get out and & walk/exercise, read ... anything. Remember that cravings only last a couple of minutes. 6.You will have to face the withdrawl effect once you top smoking but if you slowly top this habit by pledging to decrease 1 cigratte every week from your pack,life will be more eay for you.Cigratte quitting will have no impact on your weight but few months after quitting cigrattes you ill feel more energetic and happy. 7.Myself being a homoeopath will prescribe you some very effective homoeopathic medicines along with management for quitting this habit.Consult me.

Hi, From what i see, you may be suffering from Depression. It may or not be followed by any stressor. You may need to take medication and be on psychiatric treatment. You can take psychotherapy with me. Start some exercise yoga/meditation and deep breathing. Distract yourself and call up your husband whenever you get thought of suicide. You will soon be better. Eat lots of fruits like banana's, green leafy vegetables and flax seeds. If non vegetarian have fish. Recovering from depression requires action, but taking action when you’re depressed is hard. In fact, just thinking about the things you should do to feel better, like going for a walk or spending time with friends, can be exhausting. It’s the Catch-22 of depression recovery: The things that help the most are the things that are the most difficult to do. There’s a difference, however, between something that's difficult and something that's impossible. Start small and stay focused The key to depression recovery is to start with a few small goals and slowly build from there. Draw upon whatever resources you have. You may not have much energy, but you probably have enough to take a short walk around the block or pick up the phone to call a loved one. Take things one day at a time and reward yourself for each accomplishment. The steps may seem small, but they’ll quickly add up. And for all the energy you put into your depression recovery, you’ll get back much more in return. consult me for any query or counseling.

You are certainly into a depression. You could be in an anger related and this emotion, if not expressed turns inward causing the depression. Anger is energy and when this turns against you, it stifles the natural energy to make you feel tired, dull, listless and lethargic. If someone irritates you even slightly, you can easily flare-up. Then the vicious circle is for you to feel guilty and get angrier with yourself: more the depression. You have to get along with people especially in a profession like teaching! You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. The bottom line is to deal with the anger. Do visit a counselor to help you and on that person’s recommendation you may visit a doctor too.

Physically she may lose libido (sex drive) earlier than you as she ages. This may cause problems in your sexual life. Psychologically there may erupt ego clashes in future since you are younger and if you would like to have a male-dominant family. But with good understanding and open communication from both sides, you can live a happy married life.
