I really want to stop smoking but just couldn't.Tried atleast 90% of the tips given on internet but it just stops for awhile than starts off again.Help!

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Congratulations that you want to quit smoking. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. Smoking uses the respiratory system and gives you a faster kick. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 4000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke and chew tobacco: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga) or chewing, and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking tobacco. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. Don?t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, ?giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Dear lybrate user. This phenomenon is pretty common and there is nothing to worry. Not only you, everyone in your household are so because no one likes things going wrong. But if the depressive mood is more than normal you need counseling and life style changes. Your fear could be linked to your depressive mood and both could be due to anxiety disorder. Psychotherapy should help you. Take care.

Hi doc, Can you please suggest me how to get rid of seviourly drinking and smoking habits.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all 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.

My husband takes alcohol daily 2 bottles since 25 years. Want to know the medicine to make him stop drinks.what can i do?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Suddenly you may not expect change from him. You may motivate him to gradually reduce the amount and frequency. It is very difficult to leave alcohol at once. De-addiction is not possible at home. If he gets motivated he can be admitted at a de-addiction centre or a psychiatric hospital for the same. I wish you both all the best.

Dear Lybrate user ,In Indian culture sometime it becomes very irritating for girls but every culture has some merit and demerit our society is male dominated society so it happens .all this will change with time only .marriage is magical relation ,everyone needs partner for lifetime to share their feelings, emotions,love, friendship, many research have proven that good and happily married life decreases the susceptibility towards any disease. Everything happens for reason may be god chosen someone so perfect for you so that you should be happy on long term that's why god is testing your patience. We get beautiful rose sorrounded by thorns. Lets come to your problem as much you will think it ,it will become more bigger problem ,have a little faith in god, and do your work and consider all this as a part of life, just like you give exam ,give interview. Try to make yourself busy. If you feel more frustration you can contact me for counselling. Take care.

Can schizoprenic be cured by hypnosis going to past life and healing the incident.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, the clinical picture of schizophrenia is dominated by relatively stable, often paranoid, delusions, usually accompanied by hallucinations, particularly of the auditory variety (hearing voices), and perceptual disturbances. These symptoms can have a huge effect on functioning and can negatively impact a person? s quality of life. I am sorry to say, paranoid schizophrenia is a lifelong illness, but with proper treatment, a person suffering from the illness can live a higher quality of life. Please work with your psychiatrist for management of your symptoms. Take care.

I have Severe anxiety. Very less sleep. I have developed a tendency of being hyper and nervous at diverse situations.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Please learn to relax and calm down. Yoga, walking, pranayama, gym etc is very helpful. Also see your problems in a lighter vein rather than getting anxious over it. You can' t win all battles. Do what is most important and leave out things that are not important. Organising, planning, time management, far sightedness would be important skills for you. Try to set daily goals and work your time around them. Don' t forget to strike a balance between work and relaxation. Take care of your health by exercising and walking in open parks. For sleeping, don' t do anything that is stressful just before sleeping. Listen to soft music, dim lights meditating, will help you sleep better at night. There are excellent ayurvedic and homeopathy medications which can help you with both and that too with our side effects.

More than 50 conditions can cause or mimic the symptoms of dementia. A small percentage of dementias are reversible. Symptoms subside when the underlying problem is treated. Two common examples are dementia caused by vitamin B12 deficiency or an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism). Getting the right diagnosis is important so that you know what options you have.

Hello doctor. I have a problem that most of the time i am lost in my own world and my heart its really heavy, I feel like crying and I don't feel like interacting with any body. I like being alone and i think because of this only my BP goes low. Is there any thing that i can do to get over from this.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I have not known of anyone having low BP because of feeling alone or feeling like crying. Kindly check that out with a physician. You may be having the symptoms of grief-related depression. Which may be the cause of your loneliness or vice versa, the loneliness may be causing the depression. You need to examine with a counselor what is this grief all about, when did it start, and to do something about it. You may feel that it is embarrassing to talk about it and this can lead to a sense of lonely withdrawal. It seems to also cause your daydreaming state, and this should not be ignored for too long. I always recommend that one should be comfortable being alone, as long as it is not done to avoid people. In this case I suspect it is shying away from others because of your discomfort. If you need to weep, do so with someone. People will appreciate this, and will support you too. Do regular exercises, it is the best holistic medicine. Meet people, attend group meetings, join a club, eat well, and sleep well to slowly get yourself out of this state. When you are with people, you can never get lost in your own world that easily. If this does not work out, meet a counselor and take it from there.

I have a depression issue because of my break up with ex girlfriend. Is there any solution.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda
Ayurveda, Bhavnagar
I have a depression issue because of my break up with ex girlfriend. Is there any solution.
There are two types of urges mentioned in ayurveda 1) dharniya vega (urges, should b controlled, but you aren't) like chinta-stress, bhaya-fear, shoka-, krodha-short temper, maan- ego, lobha-greedy etc mental condition you should control yourself 2) adharniya vega (urges that should not be controlled, but you are controling) like sleep, urine, stool, hunger, thirst, yawn, sneeze, vomit etc. So it's too bad live with depression. Life is a gift. A beautiful phrase: life has either problem or not. If no problem, then why worry? if you have problem, two possibility. Either you can handle or not. If you can handle, why worry? if you can not do anything for problem, then again why worry?) at we the end we will always alone:) what is the concept of life? focus on your life, carrier. Be the best buddy, make other happy my advises to you are * take life lightly * main problem is how you are reacting matters & incidence of your life & day to day * you can see half filled glass of water by two way: half is still empty (nagative attitude) or half full (positive) * take balance diet * give time for yoga * you can take brahmi sankhpuspi etc ayurveda medicine * I recommended strongly, go near by ayurveda centre & take shirodhara & nashya treatment

Hi there ~ what your child may be experiencing is a normal personality which is taking root currently. Some children are extrovert and some are introvert and this takes shape with time. Your child's behavior with other children might indicate the extroversion characteristics that your child may be having. If you believe something is abnormal however, please consult with a child psychologist. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
