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 see 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. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I think one or two online counseling sessions and these therapies should help you. Take care.

Very simple (if you have patient enough). Deliberately induce her to talk about her stressors/problems, with active and sympathic listening. Do not pass any judgements/comments. Ask what are the measures she can take to overcome those problems. Give your advise or options only if she asks for. In other words, be a counsellor in such times. She will definitely feel relaxed. Then you can cuddle her like a child for a while without trying for sex. It will automatically end up in what you aimed at.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

I m a student. And I have many exams in my recent future but I am unable to concentrate on my studies. Though I want to study bt unable to study for 10 min continuously. So my ques is how to increase my concentration power, my diet etc. As I am in hostel.

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" .Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling

You both are dangerously withdrawing into yourselves. You both need help and a counselor is absolutely necessary under these circumstances. If you do not deal with your loss and do some grief work, you are likely to waste away your lives. I am sure your mom will not like to see these developments. So meet someone and talk to that person about your feelings. This is what is called an 'episodal depression' where due to a very heart-rending event that you feel you cannot handle you tend to collapse into a depression. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your father. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. Your mom will not come back and it is now the focus of the living that is very important. Let mom be proud of you wherever she is.

Hello sir, i'm student. I read more but I can't remember anything. Pl tell me what should I do for better memory power?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist

There are other factors to take into consideration too because of your age. A lot of the reason may be true because of the age alone, and a little stress perhaps. I suspect that you are going through a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, which affects you in three ways quite unknown to you. First, there will be a sexual agenda that it will kick off, secondly, there will be aggressiveness and rebelliousness, and thirdly, you will suffer from acne and pimple problems. This is the effect of the hormone that has a duration of almost two years and you will have no control over it. But if you have a good value system you will tide over this phase without significant damage. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring along some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive or coconut oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine.

Relax dear lybrate-user. It may be caused by a range of conditions like migraine, brain tumor, defects in the eye etc. But, whatsoever it is, the treatment options are vast and the chances of recovery is very high. Your mood swings may be due to your belief that it can not be cured. Consult and follow a neurologist at the earliest. You can certainly lead a normal life soon.

Dear, tobacco is the most addictive substance known to man. It is also carcinogenic and therefore it needs to be kept away from human consumption. Your problem is tobacco abuse and addiction. The best method to stop tobacco is to have will power and self belief. Tobacco chewing gums, lozenges and patches are available across medical shops to manage your tobacco craving. In any case the first step is to take a strong decision about quitting. You may consult a psychologist for substance abuse counseling. Take care.

Sounds like you are very angry with yourself. It is okay to be angry with yourself for having being fooled around by this guy. Then you need to express it to someone, like you have done to me and the matter is over. I really admire you for breaking up with this guy after knowing that he is married. It is very difficult to be in love and then discover that you were deceived all this time. But you have done really well to be able to quit the relationship on the discovery. Now pick up the pieces and make good of your life. It was that guy who deceived you and he should feel all the guilt, not you. So be proud that you did the right thing and that you did not deceive anyone yourself. Do not be harsh on yourself and your life is very precious. No man is more important than your life. Get rid of all reminders of this fellow and do not frequent places, situations, or company that you used to keep with this guy for some time. Talk to someone else also if you need to, and go and do some vigorous exercise every day, and be proud yourself. I am.

Dear, watching porn videos occassionally is not a crime or you don't have to worry about that. If you watch many porn videos in a same day, then it can be called addiction. Are you addicted in that sense? also understand, this addiction is mind based. So instead of calling it an addiction, we call it impulse reaction. Impulse reaction is a mental disorder and not a mental disease. Psychotherapy should clear your impulse reaction and please stop worrying about it. Take care,
