Dear , I think you are worried about your ego. I can understand. Ego is actually negative self consciousness. Positive self conscious or self confidence or self esteem or self respect are always good. Problem happens when you negative ones. I suggest you to have an online counseling. Take care.

Hello, ajeet, I can understand your worry, this is a problematic condition and most of the men do come across this problem. Sexual problems do have a treatment. Chronic illness do contribute to loss of libido, reduced interest in sexual activities, premature ejaculation as well. Though their are no structural anomalies detected by psychological factors can also contribute to these conditions. Most common psychological factors includes: depressive states, anxiety states, acute stress, relational issues, burnout etc. Few medications also can contribute to such states such antiviral, interferons, betablockers etc. Hence to get a complete picture about your problems, a detailed evaluation is necessary. Also this will help in formulating a management plan comprising of both pharmacological approach as well as psychological interventions, so that you can get recover in a better way and can have a better functional life ahead.

You are probably suffering from double depression based on what you have written. However a detailed evaluation is required to confidently confirm the diagnosis. I suggest you meet a psychiatrist near you. Many effective treatments are available for your problem. If treatment is started early improvement is faster and better.

Hello Arjun, Any kind of heart break and/or separation can cause emotional pain and lead to a lowered self esteem too. Time is the best healer in such a case. Give yourself time. You will bounce back to normal in a few months. Additonally keep yourself engaged with whatever work/studies you do. When your heart feels heavy with sadness or anger then find an outlet for your sadness or anger; express these emotions to someone else in whatever way you can, either by talking to someone or by writing, drawing or singing about it. Hope this helps. Ttake care of yourself in this phase and don't run the events of the past in your midn like a reel. Allow your mind and body to heal. Good Luck.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

What can help me to lead ...
Dear fiend, too much thinking means too many desires, which are always in future. We all are obsessed with future, not too much concerned with present, but the life always throbs in the present. Enjoy your present, and avoid getting into the trap of what one should be all the time. Also the single pointed focus on the result of all the activities brings stress. Instead try being focused on the activity itself. You are young do not complicate your life. Cheers.
