I am a 21 years old man. Studying now. Been smoking cigarettes from roughly the age of 16. Recently took a chest x-ray in which the doctor was quite vague in telling me about it. He just answered that if I stop now i'll be good. What do you think? and p. s its really hard to quit.

It is not necessarily the length of time that is the problem, it is the age at which you started smoking. During the teenage years the nerves are still taking its final form and any smoking or drinking during this time affects their normal development and may even destroy them. The damage mostly has to do with memory, taking responsibility and decision making. If you were someone who inhaled deeply, much lung damage is expected too. Your doctor is right in that if you stopped smoking a lot of damage can be reversed except the damaged brain cells. It is therefore a wise decision to quit as early as possible and minimize the harm. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. But try and try again until you succeed. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

I have a great addiction problem. I call this addiction because whenever I stop smoking, I feel tons of Anxiety, Depression rising in my head. I felt so scared and all. I feel numb, dead and I can not concentrate on anything. Like I was not here. I feel life so distance away. Also I was diagnosed with Body dysmorphic amd have strong obsessions surfacing when I stop smoking. This continuous smoking cycle I am in makes me less caring, and I am a ignorant one ignoring every my duties as a man. I live in a very lazy way. I used Nicotex for sometimes and it helped me alleviate craving for someday.

Dear lybrate user. Every human being is capable to adjust with any given situation. Refusing to adjust is the problem. Once you accept the situation, things will be more clear. Also remember that you were born and brought up in the same orthodox family atmosphere. You need online counseling. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, please don't quit it all of a sudden. The rule is to gradually taper it and then discontinue it. Please consult your doctor, tell him your current state and if you are feeling better tell him to reduce the dose. You have to complete the full course of the medication otherwise you will have elapse. So don't take nay risk. You can consider changing your doctor also.

What Really Causes Personality Disorders?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
What Really Causes Personality Disorders?

What really causes personality disorders?

Personality disorders (pd) are anomalies in behavioral patterns of an individual that are characterized by impairments in personal and interpersonal functioning. These are maladaptive psychological conditions that can be mild or intense and can affect a person's relations with others. These are not triggered by the external factors but are inherent abnormalities of behavior and conduct.

The human psyche is a vast and complex field of study which is so diverse that no two cases of psychological dysfunction are the exact same. Personality disorders are of numerous types, each having a different set of causes and traits.

Broadly speaking, they can be classified into three extensive 'clusters' or categories.

Cluster a includes odd or eccentric disorders like paranoid pd,

Cluster b includes dramatic or erratic disorders such as antisocial pd, and

Cluster c includes fearful and anxious disorders like avoidant pd.

Personality disorders are caused by a wide range of factors which impact each individual in a different manner. The most basic and common causes of pd are as follows:

  •   sexual abuse
  •   physical abuse
  •   emotional abuse
  •   verbal abuse

In most cases, abuse occurs during childhood and the pd takes manifestation in the teenage and adult years. A combination of multiple factors gives rise to complicated disorders which have more acute symptoms. Accidents and trauma can also give rise to personality disorders later in life.

Counseling and psychological therapy are used to tackle the problem and alleviate symptoms. Each case requires a different kind of approach and sometimes intake of medication is also deemed necessary. Diagnosis is always subjective and takes into account various aspects of the patient's life.

'consult'.

Hello sir, as you are only mentioning that earlier you were taking 20 mg of nexito now it is reduced to 10 mg. So gradually your psychiatrist will reduce and stop based on your response. As such its not very nice to say there are no side effects from this medicines, but it may not lead to addiction.

Sir I am student of Bsc but my memory power very low how to improve my memory power.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear imtiyaz, 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.

Most commonly, diagnoses of acute painful spinal conditions are nonspecific, such as neck or back strain, although injuries may affect any of several pain-sensitive structures, which include the disk, facet joints, spinal musculature, and ligamentous support. The origin of chronic back pain is often assumed to be degenerative conditions of the spine; however, controlled studies have indicated that any correlation between clinical symptoms and radiological signs of degeneration is minimal or nonexistent. Inflammatory arthropathy, metabolic bone conditions, and fibromyalgia are cited in others as the cause of chronic spine-related pain conditions. Homoeopathy offers quick, safe and permanent cure for any such conditions, you have to give your detailed case history to select correct medicine for you. Also change your lifestyle to a healthy one, go for regular exercise, eat more vegetables and fruits, drink plenty of water, try to relax for few minutes between work.

How can I change my daily routine,which includes drinking alcohol with my dinner?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Most of our habits are conditioned to certain activities. If you change the activities, you could change the drinking also a little easier. So if you are in the habit of drinking before dinner or with dinner, then change your dinner timings, the company you have dinner with, the place you have dinner in (you can have it out), the kind of dinner you have etc. Once the conditioning is altered, the association is also affected. You will not have the same urge. Initially it may be difficult but with support from family and friends, it can be done. Once you do this for 21 continuous days, it becomes relatively easier. It takes 21 days of regular adherence to make or break a habit. You may also substitute your drink for soup, pepper water (rasam) buttermilk, juices, soda with lime etc. You need to be ingenious to work against the urge and the suggesting mind. More prescriptions can be found in my book on addictions. If you wish to have a copy, send Rs. 250/-.

See having sex between adults is a matter of choice. If the girl had sex with many guys, it s her wish. If you are not comfortable, stop the relationship and find a girl who suits your needs. Dont blame her for cheating you. You might feel depressed since she has not revealed her affairs, since uve come to know of it, and you are not comfortable with it, leave her and divert your mind on other activites
