Yes, it is a drug which affects you daily life. There are many side effects of this drug. And smoking it twice a day means that now you are dependent on it. You should consult a specialist for this as soon as possible and try to overcome this habit of yours.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. 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. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so.

Binge Drinking - Signs That Indicate It!

Binge Drinking - Signs That Indicate It!

Binge drinking or alcoholism or alcohol addiction is one of the most common social issues in our country. It is not easy to define what qualifies for binge drinking across the population. Different people can qualify for binge drinking at different amounts of drinking.

  • Consuming alcohol such that the blood alcohol level reaches more than 0.08 is known as binge drinking. This could be the result of about four drinks for men and about five drinks for women.
  • Consuming more than five drinks on any given day is considered as binge drinking by another group.

People who are into binge drinking have the following common symptoms:

  • Inability to control the urge to drink
  • Strong craving for alcoholic drinks
  • End up drinking more than they originally intended
  • Efforts to cut down or stop drinking having usually failed
  • Going an extra mile to obtain and use alcohol, both in terms of money and time
  • Having problems fulfilling their social responsibilities including at home, work, or society
  • Not deterred by health issues (often caused by alcohol) to quit or control drinking
  • Not affected by strained relationships, which also is a result of the habit
  • Going to any extremes to obtain a drink (including stealing at home sometimes)
  • Getting violent or abusive with others (both known and unknown people)
  • Giving up important responsibilities as a result of excessive drinking
  • Gradually developing increased tolerance and needing more amounts to have the same ‘high’ feeling from alcohol

What qualifies for binge drinking?

  • Drinking more than intended
  • Drinking more than 5 drinks per day
  • Blacking out or having gaps between drinks
  • Violent or abusive relationships or behaviour under the influence of alcohol

How to control this?
What starts off as a social habit becomes dangerous enough to engulf the life of a person.

  • Admitting the problem is the first step towards resolution.
  • There definitely would be a reluctance, but getting help helps.
  • Change the company and stay away from those who encourage you and allow you to have a greater amount of alcohol.
  • Think of the positive things like improved work environment and improved relationships at home when you do not have this habit.
  • In the beginning, space out your drinks, drink with food, and drink enough water. These will help you reduce the amount of alcohol that gets into your system.
  • Talk to your friends and family to get emotional support.
  • Attend a detox program with others who are also planning to quit alcohol
  • Get into exercise, sports and photography, which are both creative and productive ways to improve ways of recreation and your quality of life.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hi, Neurosis can become psychosis or schizophrenia when it is not treated. Neurosis is already the acceptance of absurdity by the person’s human conscience. The neurotic accepts showing absurd behavior, which is against the normal functionalism of his human conscience. The abnormality in his or her behavior reflects the invasion of the wild side of the human conscience into the conscious field, and the indifference of their conscience to the absurdity of their behavior is a serious demonstration that they are indifferent to what should alarm them. However, neurosis is not so serious when it is properly treated. Translating your dreams according to the scientific method you are going to eliminate it in around 2 to 8 months of psychotherapy. So do not worry since you are already on treatment you will not develop schizophrenia at all, stop reading about it. Consult a psychologist for psychotherapy, which is really required in your case. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user, if you are mentally strong already, then the following meditation technique will surely help you to alleviate anxiety symptoms n focus within. Sit down with at least half an hour aside in a place where no body disturbs you for that period of time. Then start with simple inhale - Exhale of breaths. Inhale with nose, Exhale through mouth with gush of air. To increase the gush, purse your lips in the manner like you are whistling. Follow Inhale with count of 4 - hold for 4 seconds - Exhale with count of 4. Keep the focus on your breath. Do this process for 10 times. Then return to normal slow deep breathing for few seconds. Till now you will mostly relaxed. Now visualise that you are standing on the shore of a Tranquil Lake and are viewing and experiencing the serenity of the calm waters. Overhead a bful Dove is circling around you and the breeze is softly touching your body relaxing it further. And with this you see soft Golden and Silver particles gently swirling in a cone shape above you. And these particles slowly descend upon your crown, cleansing aligning and uplifting you and your Higher Self along with chakras. Let the particles enter your body and cleanse it of residual energies of the past and present and prepare you become stronger and firm. And let particles swirl away from toe to crown and with it it takes away all the anxieties, tensions, disaapointments, and all negative or non supportive energies or thoughts with you, to the Universe n transmute them. Pray to your Inner Voice to give you Loud n clear guidance all ways. Stay Silent for at least 5 mins. Open your eyes.

Stress - 8 Natural Ways to Burst It!

Stress - 8 Natural Ways to Burst It!

Stress, the new buzzword, has become an inevitable part of our lives. Take any of today’s diseases, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, cancer, sleep disorders, indigestion, infertility, depression, memory loss, migraines, etc. All of them have a common contributing factor stress.

Ayurveda believes that health is the result of balance maintained between the three elements or doshas, vata, pitta, and kapha. An imbalance between these 3 components is the main cause of ill health. Different diseases have one of these as predominant factor. Stress disrupts the balance and so contributes to various diseases. Managing stress is one of the keys to maintaining good health and thereby avoiding a lot of lifestyle related disorders.

Read on to know and understand some of the simple but effective ways of maintaining stress.

  1. Yoga Asanas: While yoga, in general, is believed to calm the mind and reduce stress, shava asana (corpse pose) sarvanga asana (Shoulder stand), hala asana (plough pose), simha asana (lion pose) and shalabhasana (locust pose) are greatly beneficial in reducing stress.
  2. Take a break: A break to break away from the mundane routine helps. Try doing nothing for a short while and see how this practice calms the nervous system and provides a clear state of mind.
  3. Mind your mind: Stress is often caused by fear of what might happen. Changing attitude to a positive one can go a long way in reducing overall stress.
  4. Analyse your stressors: If you can change it, go ahead and change it. If you cannot, change the way you react to it or simply ignore it. It is definitely not possible to have control over all things in life. Learning this helps greatly in managing stress.
  5. Meditation: Using Om, take deep breaths and focus on air moving through the lungs and the body. This can be done anywhere and leaves you with a calm mind and body. Pranayama also increases the flow of oxygen to all parts of the body and relaxes you completely.
  6. Hand it down: The ends of the finger have pressure points which act as energy channels for the body. The padding at the end of the thumb and the middle portion of the index finger are linked to the brain and can be stimulated to manage stress. Most yoga asanas use this hand posture.
  7. Warm baths: Add some ginger juice and baking soda to the bucket of hot water. This improves circulation and helps you in feeling light, with elevated mood.
  8. Herbal teas: These are, simply put, magical. Substances like chamomile, tulsi, basil, jasmine, Brahms, cardamom, etc. provide a soothing effect on the mind and body. The aroma and taste of these leave you feeling elated, with the stress disappearing with their vapours. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.
