What should I do for tobacco addiction I want to stop. But I am getting withdrawal symptoms.

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
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, 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—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. Take care.

You are very tuned into what is happening with your body. But you need to tune into how the mind affects your body as well. If you are undergoing through any tension, stress, anxiety or fear, your body can react in a similar way (your body is showing symptoms of" flight" mode which is a natural body reaction to stress). You need to learn to manage stress effectively so that you can be productive and healthy. Please see a counsellor and discuss your problems with her to learn how to deal and cope with whatever is your problem.

After my result of gate exam I am very sad and nothing like to me please give me some suggestions for happiness life.

BHMS, CGO
Homeopath, Pune
After my result of gate exam I am very sad and nothing like to me please give me some suggestions for happiness life.
1) Therapy: In some cases of depression, the root cause can be issues that have not been dealt with in a person’s life. The causes of depression are many because not all cases are alike. Some causes may be chemical and others emotional or it could be a combination of the two. Therapy has been known to be the most effective in dealing with depression. Lives can build up with pressures and work to the point of feeling run down and emotionally spent. People will most often seek the easiest alternative but sometimes just talking out your issues with someone trained to listen will help with depression. 2. Exercise: Exercise boosts every part of the body including blood flow to the arteries and endorphins which are naturally good for pain and even depression. Endorphins actually release other neurotransmitters in the body such as serotonin which is what antidepressants actually address. Endorphins release serotonin naturally and increase emotional health. Studies have proven that exercise improves cases of depression in patients suffering with this condition. 3. Iron: There are several studies that now indicate that a deficiency in iron is a cause of depression. There is a specific iron deficiency that is directly related to depression and some of the symptoms are lack of appetite, irritability and fatigue. There are many symptoms associated with this type of iron deficiency and it may be the underlying cause of a portion of people facing this issue. These underlying issues can lead to feelings of sadness and depression. An increase of iron in the diet can be the help needed to overcome issues of depression. 4. Fish Oil: Fish oil is known to boost many aspects of health and one of these is depression. When the body is getting all it needs nutritionally the mind follows. Fish oil contains a bevy of omega-3 fatty acids. These acids are known to improve emotional well-being naturally. You can buy fish oil that is molecularly distilled and you can ensure you are getting the purest form of fish oil available. 5. Folic Acid: Folic acid is an integral part of our dietary needs and should be considered when facing issues of depression. A deficiency of folate in the body is directly linked to depression in some cases and you can boost your happiness by adding foods rich in folate to your diet. Nutrition can play a large role in mood elevation. Folate is found naturally in foods such as grains, fruits and vegetables. Leafy greens that are rich in folate which are added to the diet have been shown to improve moods and emotional health as well as physical health. After each session you can feel the difference because you have come a little more closely to the root of your emotional issues. Boosting your happiness could just be talking out the things that cause you sadness in life. Gaining a Happy Perspective After dealing with nutritional deficiency or emotional deficiency it is important to put positive things forward in your life. Listen to positive affirmations during your day, avoid negative people and situations if you can do this. It is beneficial to emotional health to avoid drama and people who love drama. Boosting your happiness could be as simple as avoiding negative people and situations. Homeopathic medicine work for people and can be an alternative after normal remedies fail to boost happiness. However they should be a last resort not the first resort for boosting emotional health.

Severe mental fatigue can be due to stress and anxiety. Do daily pranayam and meditation for 15 min daily morning. Eat fruits daily like apple and pomegranate. Have few almonds daily. You may also take homoeopathic treatment for the same.

I can imagine, how difficult it must have been for you to continue life without that person. Have you expressed your sadness, grief? please talk to someone about how you feel after losing this person. Talk about your pain of losing that person. Otherwise your suppressed sadness and pain will develop into more negative thoughts and feelings. You will find it difficult to take rational decisions and you will experience additional stress. The more you talk about the lost person and the more you talk about your pain, more is the cognitive acceptance which will help you to move ahead in life" grieving" is a process, not something to'get over' with. And as part of this process, you need to experience the pain. If you don't express your feelings, the grieving process is retarded and the feelings are internalised which manifest themselves in somatic pains like headaches, body aches etc without a good reason. I understand your pain but loss is an integral part of life. It is not something that happens to us as we live, it is life itself. Understand that life will never be the same again for you but there is life ahead, for you. And this life can be good, with purpose and meaningful. Nothing of what is lost is replaced. A meaningful part of an identity and time is never replaced. Give yourself enough time to feel and experience the pain. But then you need to move on. Resolution does not mean forgetting. You will cherish that person's memories for the rest of your life. But you need to learn to" let go" of that relation you had with the person and move on. It is not very easy. But this if life. Take care.

Dear , I think you are going through social anxiety disorder initial phases. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. Take care.

Dear lybrateuser, -your pain could be due to acidity, do not miss meals, have meals at fixed timings, avoid spicy, fried & junk food, have 7-8 glasses of water for proper digestion -do regular exercise for 20-30 min/day, also include yoga & deep breathing for 5-10 min in the morning -get your stress test done as advised by your physician so that any heart problem is ruled out -the pain may not be due to the massage which you have taken.

How can I get leave from depression. Sir I have lot of work and responsibilities in daily life.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
How can I get leave from depression. Sir I have lot of work and responsibilities in daily life.
YOu need antidepressants if these tips cannot help If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal.

When my wife is much stressed and due to some family disturbances she avoids sex saying not having mood. In this situation what shall do to have a pleasure sex and relief her from such stress or shall I quit sex at that time. Kindly advice and also advice how to seduce her in that situation.

Very simple (if you have patient enough). Deliberately induce her to talk about her stressors/problems, with active and sympathic listening. Do not pass any judgements/comments. Ask what are the measures she can take to overcome those problems. Give your advise or options only if she asks for. In other words, be a counsellor in such times. She will definitely feel relaxed. Then you can cuddle her like a child for a while without trying for sex. It will automatically end up in what you aimed at.

I dont feel like going my office due to office politics. These days when i start thinking something, one more thought starts simultaneously, then one more then one more. That way many things starts at a time. It is very strange feeling. Please advice

BHARAT JYOTI, MRACGP, INCEPTOR, MD-PhD, MD - Psychiatry, FIPS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Office Politics is everywhere - it is a universal group phenomena which produce it. You need to cope up with the stress by changing your attitude. Since you are getting rush of thoughts one after another you need to calm down. Meditate to control your Brain frequency to Theta/alpha frequency. Probably it comes by practice. Get a thorough physical done and see how you change. You can also defocus and concentrate aon your job. It is going to be the same wherever you go for work you don't worry about others, change your attitude, or do what is correct and and dont worry about office politics, If you get these thoughts frequently and make you feel worse then you need a psychiatric assessment.

Hello , depression is a mental illness. Just like any other physical illness, it has its symptoms and treatment. There are lots of treatment options for depression these days including medicines, psychotherapy (counseling), electroconvulsive therapy, transcranial magnetic stimulation, etc. Untreated depression has its complications which affect a person`s social life, his occupation, apart from the distressing experience of feeling gloomy itself. I could help you more if you share your symptoms in detail in private. Take care.

It is not good to use psychiatry medicine for long time. Up to that you are not consulted psychologist. Better to consult. After discontinue medicine then depressive thoughts comes again. You need to take psychological counselling. Precautions prevent depression is do not be alone. Be share all your feelings with familymembers and friends. Be sociable. Be happy all the time. Do not think too much on any aspects. Take it easy. Practice yoga and meditation. Puja also helps very much. Walking, watching t v, going movies, attending spiritual meetings. Spend most of the time with your agemates. Be happy all the time. Do not think about past days. Feel always comfortable. Be happy. Ok best of luck.

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 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 Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

If you are unsure, you will always be in trouble about making decisions. If you are in conflict, it means that you have two or more positions and that can drain you off of your energy. In such situations, it is recommended that you share your situation with a good friend and see how s/he reacts to the same and take a course that is most reasonable. Many times in life we need to choose between two options only but if we are insecure, we throw in too many other possibilities and cause the confusion. You may want to meet with a counselor deal with your fear, which is the underlying emotion that is the culprit for all this distress. If the fear is of recent origin, it may be easier to deal with. Whereas, if it is from childhood there may be more work involved. Any which way you need help from another person and so it is important to meet the counselor and learn the technique of decision making and also to deal with your fear.
