Iam 30 yrs old I daily smoke 15 cigarettes. I want to reduce this smoking number how should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are consuming way too many cigarettes per day! The way to go about quitting is to do completely: not just reducing it. That will not work. Let me take the liberty of assuming that you really mean that you want to stop smoking. On that assumption I must congratulate you because that is the foremost requirement to help you with that decision. But it is not easy because there are a lot of conditioning associated with it and these can be spread over the whole day and night!!! When you decide, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since you want to do it I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support. You need to identify with why you smoke: 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 vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. 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. 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. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. To help process all of the above and to get support, go for counseling and persevere with it until you are completely over it.

Lack of sleep and disturbed sleep are two of the main reasons behind daytime sleepiness. Hence, setting a proper sleeping schedule is one of the best ways to prevent daytime drowsiness. Proper sleep will even help fight low energy, fatigue, depression and stress. Different people need different amounts of sleep to function well, however an average of 7 to 8 hours of sound sleep is enough to help your body function properly. To help enjoy sound sleep: •Maintain a sleep schedule that has a consistent bedtime and wake time. •Keep your bedroom completely dark to promote restful sleep. If needed, use shades or blinds to block out any exterior light. •Invest in a good quality mattress, comforter and pillows to improve your sleep quality. •Read a book or do some relaxing yoga stretches for about 20 minutes before going to bed. •Limit your screen time staring at computers, TVs or phones in the evening before going to bed.

When under a lot of tension and stress I usually collapse for some seconds what should I do?

When under a lot of tension and stress I usually collapse for some seconds what should I do?
Hi, Try deep breathing exercise. Set aside relaxation time. Include rest and relaxation in your daily schedule. Don’t allow other obligations to encroach. This is your time to take a break from all responsibilities and recharge your batteries. Do something you enjoy every day. Make time for leisure activities that bring you joy, whether it be stargazing, playing the piano, or working on your bike. Keep your sense of humor. This includes the ability to laugh at yourself. The act of laughing helps your body fight stress in a number of ways. All the best :) Let me know if you have any questions.

Dear lybrate-user, there is no need to worry. If this is the way you go forward, you cannot get into iit next year. I say this because, there is no use worrying or being depressed. There is something wrong with your learning pattern. Find it out and correct it. Don't blame every other thing and get worried. You may get help from a psychologist. Take care.

Speaking of phones May cause memory loss? And please tell me the reasons and controls.

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
There is a term called'digital amnesia' it refers to the reduced use of our memory due to over dependence on digital technology. As everything is available on finger tips today, people don't make efforts to remember numbers, appointments, names, etc. Less use of any function of the body can definitely lead to its weakness. However the damage is not permanent or irreversible. Memory exercises can help a lot. Another thing to acknowledge is that digital media create a lot of distractions in our day to day life. This again interferes with our memory by reducing our attention, making us less efficient. Some time away from phones, tabs and computers is definitely recommend on a daily basis.

Dear Ajay. Welcome to lybrate. A person above 50 will be naturally ageing. Secondly there is no safe limit to alcohol consumption. Alcohol is a poison and your liver will be damaged even if you take a single peg. Take care.

Why my friend fears from god, she think the god punish him. Please tell the solution.

MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy, MPHIL
Psychologist, Mumbai
Devotion or bhakti as we call it, is based on love, not fear. Where there is love there is god. Tell your friend not to fear god but to love him. God will never punish only guide. Like the bhagavad gita tells us" lord krishna who is dwelling in everybody's heart, acts as a best wishing friend and purifies the devotee who constantly engages in hearing him" tell your friend that when she says she is scared of god, essentially she is scared of her own self, as god is within every one of us. She need not be afraid of her most trusted friend and guide. Ofcourse if your friend has any questions or wants to talk about this at length she can always talk to someone who is open to this discussion or consult a counsellor and seek help.

I suspect that he is one of many who have been taking medicines but not working with a counselor in tandem. He needs both counseling and medical intervention. The combination is ideal for the cure to be complete. In fact counseling will need to go on for a long time to develop skills and techniques to cope with everyday challenges of his life. If he remains episode-free for three years at least, he can be weaned off of the medication. So I assume that for all of these many years he has been letting the medicine do all the work on his depression and very little effort from his side. This will not do at all. So please start him on counseling immediately. In the meantime please get him to do the following that can be done all by himself as he desires: he must be active and work towards his reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When he is depressed, he will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. He is required to literally do the opposite of what he feels like doing. Depression makes one want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make one too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, he will need to fight this disease. He must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, 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 sitcoms on tv or comedies and cheer himself 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 himself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, he needs to incorporate these three important adaptations in his life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If he did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Have him pray and have faith in god to alleviate his sufferings. He should not wait for others to help. Use his own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but if he perseveres he will win this battle. The doctor and counselor are there only to facilitate him, all the hard word must come from him, and his cooperation with them is very critical for his success.

Good Morning ~ It appears to me that you have always had suspicious about your wife and so that has been confirmed now with your keeping a secret camera. You found that your wife was having sex with another man and you are upset about it. I am sure you want to do something about it. That something is very important and it can make of break your marriage. If you have kids it is important that you make sure they do not suffer. In your history you have made sure that you mention that you are not sexually active and masturbate. This may not be a good idea. The wisest way to go about it is to show you wife the video you made and confront her with it. It may also work well to actually know what she thinks. If she has remorse and regrets the episode to the extent where she feels guilty then it may be a good idea to patch things up for your kids sake. It seems also that your physical health is being affected due to your wife's sexual excursions. I hope you seek the help of a psychiatrist. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

Indecisiveness signifies significant underlying anxiety. So please tell me, do you feel worried all the time about about multiple issues ranging from day to day small problems to slightly bigger ones also? how is your sleep? in addition loss of self confidence also signifies anxiety. Now the solution to anxiety problems is a proper course of medicines & certain lifestyle changes ranging from as simple things as meditation & daily 30 minutes jogging to more complex things as structured diary writing, thought recording etc. But for all these to happen, you first need to describe your symptoms in detail so that I can give you proper help & a fast relief. Good luck!
