How can I give up smoking?

When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. 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. You may also 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 also 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. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

DEAR Lybrate USER. This problem is due to irritation and inadequate nutrition of the brain. So follow few basic things …. 1) drink only 100-150 ml of water during meals …. 2) don’t drink water one hour before meals and one hour after meal… 3) avoid oily, spicy, salty, junk, fast, fermented and stale foods… 4) avoid coffee and tea… 5) try to sleep upto 10.30 pm … 6) do anuloma viloma pranayam regularly early in the morning… A) eat 30-40 black currants and 1 tsf of jaggery during meals… B) take 250 ml of fresh butter milk during meals. C) instill 3-4 drops of CHANDANADI TAILA in each nostril at the time of sleeping…… Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result. Consult to me for further suggestions. THANKS.

Im 20 and im suffering from hand shaking from few days im worried. I drink alcohol daily. Is it related to it.
Yes, it is related if your consumption is heavy. You must quit immediately. If you smoke too, the handshaking would become even more pronounced. It does not matter when you feel like drinking, as long as you need your drink. This could lead to increased tolerance levels so that over time you will need to drink more to get the same or greater effect. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course 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 you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.

Hello Sir. Mera last 5-6 months se mera mind past ki baaton me chalta rehta hai round the clock. Actually last year mera meri girlfriend se breakup ho gaya tha, jiske sath mera 6mnths ka relation tha. Or jiske liye mai khud ko responsible maanta hun.

Mai roz guilt mein survive kar raha hu or apne aap ko jimmendar manta hu. Uski baatein roz mere mind mein 24hrs ghumti rehti hai or uske saath spend kia hua time bhi. Mai bhi usko pyar karta tha Or mai janta hun voh meri life mein ab kbhi vapas nhi aayegi and I really miss her. Mera daily suicide karne ka mann karta hai. Aisa lagta hai jaise meri life ek curse hai. Or ha mujhe OCD bhi hai, but mujhe nahi lagta sab iski vajah se hai. I really don't knw what to do. Meri mind ki koi concentration nahi hai.

Hello, agar aapko lagta hai ki aapki galti se ye break-up hua hai to sabse peheli baat - aapko apne feelings ka izhaar apni girlfriend se sahi samay pe karna chahiye, aap use'sorry' tab hi boliye jab aap apne ego aur attitude ko wapis apne relationship mein nahi leke aayenge. Medication: take homoeopathic medicines - natrum mur. 30/ 3 times a day daily for 2 weeks. Revert.

Simply engage mind in better activities like reading, hearing nice talks or music and keeping mind busy in services. Eating vegetarian foods and fruits and drinking cow's milk in night before sleeping also helps.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Bipolar disorder, with its extreme mood swings from depression to mania, used to be called manic depressive disorder. Bipolar disorder is very serious and can cause risky behavior, even suicidal tendencies, and can be treated with therapy and medication. Please work with your psychiatrist for a cure. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user It's important that along with medicines your brother must take some help from Psychologist. One on one sessions are required. Also try making some lifestyle changes like early morning walk/jogging or Yoga. Trying engage in some hobby. You both brothers can spend some brother time watching movie together or going to some trip together. Hope these solutions will help. Take care.

Hello, yes at this age, it is little hard for you to stay somewhere you do not have friends. You could take this as an opportunity (or a personal challenge to do your best in a given situation!) and try following things. 1. Try and make new friends (i am sure there will be people around). They doesn't need to your age - little older or younger will do as well. Hey, it is better than not having friend at all. 2. Go for a long bicycle rides and explore the new place. 3. Don't have bicycle - may be go for a long walk or even better long runs. 4. If you are into reading - best time to grab a book and spend your time reading it - there won't be anyone to disturb you or break your link! if you are not into reading. Then try reading something in an area of your interest. For example adventure, science fiction or whatever sounds interesting. Make sure to grab a thinner book though! 5. If you are into building things. Grab paper, wood, wood chips, stones whatever sparkles your eyes and start building. And if you are not into it. Try something anyway - you never know it might become your new hobby the bottom line is instead of staying in a victim zone where you keep blaming the situation and passing every minute as if it is a life time (a little exaggeration here.) take charge, stand up, go out, do something. Replace the word boredom with curiosity. That will give you new eyes to look around and I am sure once that happens - you could turn this into one of the best vacations ever and your friends back home will be so jealous of you. Remember it is always - it is all how you look at it! make your vacations the grand one. Enjoy and do share your experience. Best wishes,

Hi, this is regarding my retired dad who in his late 60's started doubting my working mom. After fights raised up he is normal now but he is not agreeing that his doubt was wrong. I am worried that may be again he may raise up with his doubting. Do I need to take him to a psychologist which he would never agree or is there any other medicine to let go off his imaginations? please help.

I think that his not being occupied is probably bothering him. He may also feel insecure that he is not working whereas his wife is. And anyway a little suspicion is good because of their age: mom should feel elevated that he still has possessive feelings for her! no, there is no need to take him to anybody after he has become normal. I doubt it will rise up again but you need to do something for him. Keep him occupied but not busy all through the day. When mom comes back from work have her give him a lot of attention and love: even a little fussing will do no harm. Give him the importance in all matters of life in the home and around the family. Mom in particular must show him a lot of regard, and play down the fact that he is not earning and she is. Let him still feel that he is the decision maker and is in charge: essentially pander to his ego but do not overdo it. As long as he feels important he will be okay.

Thyroid does not directly affect erection but thyroid levels should be maintained to normal to avoid indirect effects. Your problem is psychological related with your personality. Depression and lack of confidence affect the erection directly. Medications can help in overcoming this problem. Along with them have confidence in yourself. You are perfectly normal. Believe in yourself. Their is solution to evry problem.
