Dear, socially accepted sexual practices and socially unaccepted sexual practices exist in the same society. Your case socially unaccepted. That never means you are doing something wrong. There are many areas where we do not do or restrict our self from doing something which is socially unacceptable. In this case too, you have to restrict yourself. Please do not be anxious about it, but you should restrict. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of cherry plum + 3 drops of mimulus + 3 drops of white chestnut + 3 drops of aspen. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.

Yes, tobacco smoking can cause weight loss and each cigarette has the ability to effect your erectile capacity and will finally lead to impotence. 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 7000 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.

Hi, I have been smoking for last 10 years, I want to quit what should I do. Is their any medicine which can help?

Why are you thinking of quitting of smoking? it means that you have already understood or gone through the educative program leading the bad effects of smoking. You keep improving your knowledge and in the same you will also get the tips of quitting smoking also. And you try to reduce the frequency slowly and stop it. If you develop any discomfort or your desire is not letting you to quit smoking, you need to see a psychiatrist.

I am 22 years old male and I want to quit my smoking habit what should I do ?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
Quitting smoking suddenly is difficult. You may gradually reduce the amount and frequency. You should watch pictures of cancer patients on internet and should see programes related to nicotine addiction. This will give you inner motivation to leave it. To reduce the craving and to takle the withdrawal discomfort you may use nicotine buffered chewing gum as a substitute of smoking. Gradually you may reduce and leave it. All the best.

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. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Hi, my mental ability is average. What can I do to increase it.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. I can provide you more tips. Take care.

Treatment types depend in large part on what is causing your agoraphobia, and whether or not you have agoraphobia with or without panic attacks. Without panic disorder often agoraphobia is treated with its own specific cognitive behavioral therapy treatments, especially exposure therapy. Exposure therapy involves helping the individual get used to the idea of going outside through a serious of steps that help them become more relaxed in public situations. Medications may also be used to clear up anxiety, under the assumption that the individual will spend more time outside and reduce their fear of unfamiliar situations. Medications are generally a last resort, however. With panic disorder similar treatments may be used when someone has panic disorder, but they need to be combined with panic attack treatments. Exposure therapy for panic attacks may be a good place to start, because it allows people to get used to each individual panic attack trigger ultimately reducing the likelihood that a sensation will cause a panic attack. Medicines are used, but they're not advisable. Recall that panic attacks can be triggered by fear of a panic attack. While medications may provide temporary relief, as soon as you wean off the medications you'll fear having a panic attack again, and a panic attack will become more likely. In all cases of agoraphobia, treatment cannot start until your anxiety is better understood. Consult with me for psychotherapy try breathing exercises abdominal deep breathing.
