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.

I used to get angry on small things due to which m loosing my relations. M very stressed due to such relations. I want to overcome with this weakness of my anger. What should I do for the same? I always get the feeling of committing suicide. please hlp me to overcome this.

Whenever there are controversies constantly one is likely to be angry. When you are overworked and the work is not completed to your expectations or the expectations of the person for whom you are doing that work, you are likely to get angry. Weakness of any type, mental or physical, also is the cause of anger. When there is some guilt in your mind and you feel it may not be divulged then also you may get angry. When you are not well, you may get anger. It is said that anger is concerned with the production of bile, that means in acidity/ hyper-acidity you are apt to get angry. Persistence of this condition may head you to commit suicide. However, we have very good medicines to control this condition. So, you may get in touch with a homoeopath near you. You will be benefited.

Hi lybrate-user, To some, smoking a cigarette is more than just a bad habit; it’s a ritual that is used to address many physical and emotional states. In order to finally end the addiction to smoking, and to prevent future relapses, you need a holistic approach—one that integrates both physical and emotional symptoms along with a real, concrete plan. By integrating the latest research, science-backed natural remedies, and other proven techniques, it is possible to quit smoking, and stay smoke-free. 1 – Treating the Physical Symptoms of Nicotine Withdrawal Nicotine withdrawal can begin within 30 minutes of your last cigarette. The first days are the most intense, but remember that these cravings become less frequent and less intense with time. Here are some proven techniques for dealing with those cravings: Exercise: A study published by the Journal of Psychopharmacology found that exercise had a positive effect on smoking. The trial included 15 different studies that evaluated variables, including the desire to smoke and the strength of the desire. Again and again researchers found that many different exercises, including yoga and high-intensity activities, had positive results on reducing cravings. So, next time you have a craving, try embracing the outdoors and go for a 15-minute walk instead. Deep Breathing: Techniques that focus on breath work, such as taking a series of deep breaths, diaphragmatic breathing, and directed breathing, are an effective and easy way to reduce cravings. A study published in The Journal of Addictive Behaviors found that taking a series of deep breaths every 30 minutes significantly reduced smoking withdrawal symptoms, including cravings and irritability. Have an urge? Try taking several deep breaths and notice that desire begin to slip away. 2 – Treating the Emotional Symptoms of Nicotine Withdrawal Feelings such as irritability, anxiety, and even depression can occur as the body begins to withdraw from nicotine. Breaking the psychological addiction can be difficult because the limbic system, also known as the reward center of the brain, is stimulated with each cigarette. The urge to light up can feel uncomfortable as the brain and body begin to detoxify. The good news is that in as little as a month after your last cigarette, a large number of nicotine receptors in the brain will return to normal. Remember that each day will get better, and the cravings will decrease as your brain chemistry rebalances. 3. Addressing the Triggers for Smoking These are moments in your daily life that exacerbate the craving for cigarettes. For example, maybe every morning you used to have your first cigarette with a cup of coffee. Or perhaps you always lit up when drinking alcohol. Acknowledging these situations and creating new patterns can help. Write down the moments where your cravings are the most intense and think of new, healthier alternatives that can take their place. Here are some ideas to get you started. REPLACE / Coffee with green tea / Alcohol with kombucha / Hanging out with smokers with joining an exercise class 4. Foods that Help with Quitting Smoking Nourish the body with foods high in vitamin C, such as citrus fruits, papayas, bell peppers, guava, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, tomatoes, and strawberries. You can restore lost antioxidants with beta carotene-rich foods such as carrots, sweet potatoes, and dark leafy greens, including kale and spinach. Increasing your intake of vitamin E will help rebuild your body’s reserves. Try eating fruits, veggies, and nuts. Avocados, almonds, olive oil, and kiwi are some great ones to try. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

Dear lybrate user, it is excellent to have a dream and it is wonderful to make sincere efforts to achieve the dream. It is also very important to have rational expectations, so that the goal is achievable. Hence, don't look at iitians and nitians. Focus on your dream and understand what skills will be required to achieve that dream, make a systematic plan, have a detailed schedule for each month/week/day and try to do things as per the schedule. Remember that what you do today is going to affect your future. So you will have to make conscious efforts to get rid of your habit of procasination. You probably are under stress and have fatigue. Try to take healthy diet, lots of water, do some exercise, and try to get at least 7 - 8 hours of sleep every day. Stop comparing yourself with others. Every person in this person is unique. There will always be many people who will be better than you and there will be many people who are not as good as yourself. So stop comparing. Always compare your current performance with your previous performance. Try to improve on that, learn new skills. Nlp would be helpful. You may also talk to a counsellor. Take care.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. You have to remain under supervision of a neurophysician because your pathology of parkinson' s disease is best managed by them. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena
