How do I quit drinking alcohol?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, quitting alcohol addiction is not child's play. De-addiction therapy is an option for you. But in my suggestion, the best option would be, quit it now (today) and sustain it with your will power. Motivation therapy and mind power building therapy should help you. I suggest you to go for counseling and further therapy procedures. Take care.

My wife is going through depression problem. Her age is 28 years. Please suggest what can be done.
Dear Lybrate user, Depression involves feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and worthlessness about the self, world and future. There is also a distinct lack of interest in activities that were once enjoyable and there might also be changes in sleeping and eating habits. If you notice any of these in your wife, then I suggest you consult a clinical psychologist who will be able to help you and your wife cope with the symptoms effectively.

In spite of our good relation my wife very often develops relationships with doctors in the hospital she works, here matter of discussion is very much personal and physical, when confronted she admitted her mistake but started it again, is there any guarantee she will not go physical with any of her doctors? I can not understand how the educated doctors also behave like that in spite of having their wife and children, they will argue it as natural friendship, but they immediately turn their faces if they are asked to tell it to their wife, tried to coerce my wife in building extra marital with my wife, when I intervened he threatened me with legal steps, can I trust mt wife?

Trust is very much important in maintaining relationships. Open and direct communication without impulsive reactions is very important. Talk to your wife about your and her feelings towards your relationship. Express your love and care for her and tell her that you value it. Instead of blaming her, ask her expectations from the marital relationship. (on physical and mental level). Be transparent and committed. Give her assurance of your commitment. Try to spend more time with her and share your pleasant memories with each other.

We’ve all had the experience of feeling anxious about something, to the degree that it keeps us up and makes it hard to fall asleep. If you’re a worrier by nature, your fears and concerns may regularly cause you to lie awake in bed for hours, tossing and turning. When this happens frequently, one naturally begins to feel anxious about bedtime as night approaches, making it even harder to wind down. The good news is that anxiety can be successfully treated. Often through simple things you can do yourself, the vicious cycle can be broken. 1) Take deep, relaxing breaths Taking deep, relaxing breaths can calm the nervous system and decrease general tension. When you notice yourself starting to worry or tense up, take several slow deep breaths in a row (breathe in through your nose, and exhale your fears and worries out your mouth). I also use this technique whenever I have a difficult time falling asleep. 2) Avoid caffeine If you’re a worrier, stay away from caffeine, particularly in the latter half of the day. If you must have something in the morning, choose green tea as it contains an amino acid, L-theanine, which promotes serenity and calm. 3) Try guided relaxation techniques Find a guided, relaxation recording that you like and use it daily. Learn to shift from tension to relaxation by listening to the recording when you’re stressed, or in bed at night to help you relax and fall asleep. 4) Write down your worries When your fears run around familiar tracks in your mind all day, it can be hard to gain control of them. Stop the cycle of chronic worrying by writing your fears in a journal. What is the worst that could happen? What is more likely to happen, optimistically? What can you do to improve the situation? When you examine your fears, they usually lose their power. 5) Exercise to blow off steam If you’re feeling really keyed up, try going for a run, a brisk walk or go to the gym. Consciously work off and shake off your fears and worries as you do it. Physical activity releases stress and also improves depth of sleep at night. 6) Try Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Anxiety is often a result of poor thought habits such as fearing the worst, focusing on the negative, inaccurate assumptions and negative self-talk. CBT techniques can change your habitual ways of seeing the world. If your anxiety is significant, consider seeing a professional therapist trained in CBT. Alternatively, there are CBT self-help tools and worksheets available online that can help you work through your worries. 7) Get enough sleep Ironically, the less sleep you get, the more anxious you’re likely to be. It’s also harder to manage stress. If you’ve been feeling anxious, the last thing you want to do is cut corners on sleep. Get to bed earlier, to give yourself the best chance at a solid night’s rest. Finally, if you’ve been feeling anxious for a long time and it’s affecting your sleep significantly, it’s important to let your doctor know about it, in addition to trying these tips.

Understand the concept you were born alone and you will go alone during the journey of life, many will board the train many will come close but they will get down once their destination arrives let it be you me or others so be like a mercury in thermometer rise and fall with temperature. But if the mercury gets stuck to the wall, thermometer does not give right readings and is ultimately thrown away. Wakeup realise the truth of life and death and you will be back to your routine when you wake up look yourself in mirror, smile and say" I refuse to be miserable" all he best for.

Hello, thanks for the query. It is indeed difficult to put up with a temperamental family member & I understand your difficulty. You mentioned he took some antimanic drug, can you tell its name, dosage & why he is no longer taking it? your brother needs psychiatrist consultation for sure to ascertain whether these mood swings are due to some mental illness (bipolar disorder, schizophrenia) or they form his personality style (known as cluster b personality traits) so that he can receive proper help accordingly. Good luck.

How can I improve my concentration power. Facts are not easily remberd by me. Smtm I even forget that what I hav read in morning.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

I want ask from psychologist about the ways to sharpen memory power and one thing also can anyone remember everything or many thing happened in their life till the last breath.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

It is possible you are suffering from social anxiety. Try practicing in the mirror before you are in a social situation. Also use relaxation techniques like deep breathing, meditation, progressive muscular relaxation and yoga. If the anxiety is overwhelming and debilitating, consult a psychiatrist. With medication and counseling you will see relief in your symptoms.

Hi, its called light therapy. It is not clear why bright light therapy may work for people with depression, but previous research has shown it often works in the treatment of people with seasonal affective disorder (sad). One idea is that in people with sad, the light may correct a problem with their inner biological clock called the circadian rhythm, lam said. The second major theory is that light affects neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin, noradrenalin and dopamine, he said" and these are the same neurotransmitters that are of interest in antidepressants for treating depression as well.
