Am a smoking person, am smoking past 12 yrs, now I want to quite smoking bcoz I go to got the marriage. Pls advised me.

It’s not too late to reverse the effects of smoking. An overwhelming amount of damage to your health can be reversed by quitting. Studies have shown that quitting at around age 30 reduces the chance of dying from smoking-related diseases by more than 90%. If you quit at around age 50, you reduce the risk of dying prematurely by 50% compared with those who continue to smoke. Even those who quit at around age 60 or older live longer than those who continue to smoke. Not only that but you’ll experience immediate health benefits from being a nonsmoker – as quickly as 20 minutes after you quit. What Happens When You Quit Immediately after quitting smoking, heart rate and blood pressure, which is abnormally high while smoking, begin to return to normal. Within a few hours, the level of carbon monoxide, which reduces the blood’s ability to carry oxygen, begins to decline. Within a few weeks, circulation improves, you don’t produce as much phlegm, and you don’t cough or wheeze as often. The workload on the heart is decreased and cardiac function is improved. Food tastes better, and your sense of smell returns to normal. Everyday activities no longer leave you out of breath. Within several months of quitting, you experience significant improvements in lung function. In one year, your risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stroke is halved. In five years, many kinds of cancer, including lung, larynx, mouth, stomach, cervix, bladder, show decline in risk, and that decline approaches the risk of someone who has never smoked. Within 10 to 15 years, risk of lung disease, including bronchitis and emphysema, are decreased. Conditions such as cataracts, macular degeneration, thyroid conditions, hearing loss, dementia, and osteoporosis are positively affected. Nerve endings in the mouth and nose begin to regenerate, improving taste and smell. Medications may work better, enabling some to be taken in decreased doses. If you’re taking birth control pills, quitting smoking will decrease your chance of heart attack and stroke due to clotting. You’ll have decreased risk for impotence and infertility. If you’re pregnant, you’ll protect your unborn child from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and low birth weight. Years will be added to your life: people who quit smoking, regardless of their age, are less likely than those who continue to smoke to die from smoking-related illness.

Procrastination - 6 Ways To Stop Yourself From It!

Procrastination - 6 Ways To Stop Yourself From It!

Procrastination is a phenomenon that all people are familiar with. It is the squandering away of time in the pursuit of meaningless fulfillments at the cost of important targets and responsibilities. The more urgent tasks are constantly being put off for a later time.

In some cases, it becomes a chronic problem that can lead to severe difficulties in life. When one keeps delaying the confrontation of essential commitments, it can have a tremendous negative impact on life in the form of failure, stress, and embarrassment.

Whether you are a chronic procrastinator or an occasional one, there is always room for improvement. Following are a few examples of ways in which you can keep procrastination at bay:

1. Make a list - This is the simplest and most effective way to avoid procrastinating. It is helpful if one lists down all the necessary things that need to be done. Having a visual reminder of tasks and goals can increase motivation to accomplish them at the earliest.

2. Set a deadline - Time management is the most important aspect of avoiding procrastination. For every task that you set yourself, chalk out a time frame within which it must be completed so that no time is wasted.

3. Fragment your goals - Consider breaking your tasks into a set of mini-tasks and tackling each of those at a time instead of trying to accomplish the entire thing at one go. The larger the task, the more overwhelming it appears. Mini-tasks are easier to complete and hence this method can help in the prevention of procrastination.

4. Reward yourself - Devising a reward system that lets you celebrate accomplishments can act as a boost to morale and provide motivation for working consistently. Treat yourself after every achievement as a prize for all your efforts.

5. Eliminate all distractions - There will always be distractions all around that keep you from focusing on your goals. These add to the tendency to procrastinate and must be identified, and removed from the environment in which you are required to work.

6. Start right away - As the saying goes, there's no time like the present. Taking immediate action is the only real way to avoid procrastination. Identify your goals and get started on them at the earliest in order to achieve the fruits of your labor. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear friend there are great speakers and public figures who had stammering. EMS Namboothiripadu was one great leader who's speach had been heard by large audiences. One journalist asked him humoursly "Do you always have stammering. He replied with more humour that "only when I speak" So don't loose confidence. Proud of your other capabilities. There are speech therapy methods also to improve your stammering.

Dear Lybrate user. You could be disappointed and therefore feel sad and melancholy. Past incidents must be the reason. You must learn to overcome those thoughts. You need to understand, obsessive thoughts about the past is the reason for your present problem. You need to change your way of thinking. Online Cognitive therapy and counseling should help you. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger and aggression comes when you are frustrated, disappointed, stressed or anxious. These emotions are common and therefore nothing to worry about. I suggest anger management therapy and cognitive therapy. Take care.

Social anxiety disorder, also called social phobia, is an anxiety disorder in which a person has an excessive and unreasonable fear of social situations. Anxiety (intense nervousness) and self-consciousness arise from a fear of being closely watched, judged, and criticized by others. Symptoms include: Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

I have been addicted to smoking, alcohol I tried my self to stop. But I have gone more and more addicted towards bad habits. How to cure my addiction?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi. Take homoeopathic medicine which will help you to get rid of your habit of smoking and it’s side-effects. Schwabe's Daphne Indica/ thrice daily for 3 months. After a month, report back to me. For quitting alcohol: Start with homoeopathic medication by Schwabe - Quercus Robur 1x/ thrice a day daily for 4 weeks. Start taking fresh, nutritive, balanced and healthy food consisting more of seasonal fruits, green vegetables, pulses, legumes, nuts, flaxseeds, 10-12 glasses of water in a day, 6-8 hrs. Of sleep daily and think healthy! Yoga Poses: -Marichyasana: It is performed by sitting in a comfortable position on the floor. Sit cross-legged on the floor and pull your right thigh towards your chest. Twist your body towards the right side. Repeat the twist on the left side. -Suryanamaskar: To begin with, hold your hands folded in front of you (as in the Indian Namaskara pose) and look at the sun. Raise your hands straight upwards in the folded position. Bend down and touch your feet. Stretch one leg outwards and arch your body backwards. Bend forward in the downward dog pose and then rest your entire body on your belly. Next, slowly lift up your torso in the cobra pose. Now, return back to the downward dog pose and all the other poses you have performed before it in the return sequence. Ultimately, you will return to the folded hands pose which you have started with. -Baddha Konasana is performed in a seated posture. Start by sitting with your legs stretched outwards. Now fold one leg and then the next, and place them with the soles of the feet in contact with each other. Remain seated in the position for as long as you can. -Balasana helps in combating alcoholism by strengthening the mind of the alcohol addict. This asana relieves mental stress and fatigue and improves blood circulation to the brain. To perform this asana, kneel down, touch the floor with your forehead and stretch out your hands in the front.
