Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 4 drops of olive + 4 drops of hornbeam + 4 drops of mimulus + 3 drops of honeysuckle. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every night once before sleeping.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating 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 addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

I noticed my hand shiver when I do some work sometime, I am a smoker but only smoke 3 cigratees daily. Is smoking is the reason behind it? Please guide me. Thanks.

Yes, it could be if you have been smoking for a long time especially during your adolescence period. It is not enough to quit smoking, which is in itself an excellent thing, but now you must do something to return your ravaged body, mind, and brain back to a healthy state. Depending on when you quit and how much you have smoked, it will take time for your health to revert to old times. To hasten it you must do some effective things immediately. You must take one day at a time when quitting. 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 gums and 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. But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear cause grief related depression. Such grief related depression stays for some days or weeks. Then it diffuse itself. If you still have that depression, take care.

Is there any way to quit smoking? I am smoking from past 5 years, is there any danger to my life?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Lots of danger to life, if you smoke. there are 7000 chemicals in cigarette smoke and most of them are harmful. Congratulations that you want to quit smoking. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. Smoking uses the respiratory system and gives you a faster kick. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 7000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke!!! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke and chew tobacco: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga) or chewing, and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. You may 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 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 tobacco. 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. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, “giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times”. 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.

Dear doctor, I had been a normal smoker for almost 3 years now. 3 cigarettes a day on an average. And moreover I had been using marijuana continuously for almost 2 years now. I really wish to stop both of these habits as it keeps me away from the things I want to achieve in my life. I had tried stopping both but was not successful for a period more than a month. I fall in depression and anger towards the end of the month. Please help me out with some medication if possible. I really wish to stop this and achieve great things in my life. I hope what I have shared with you remains with you. Is it necessary that I take anti depression pills?

Dear, if you are sure that you are a moderate smoker, you will be able to stop it with simple will power. But here, marijuana is involved. As you know, marijuana drug addiction is not fatal but it is degenerative. You will be needing deaddiction therapy and treatment through rehabilitation centers. Consult such a facility. Take care.

Move from your past if it gives you sadness only. You have to be optimistic for everything happens in your life if you want to be happy and want to distribute love and happiness to others.

What you want from from life is very good it will surely help you. If you want any further help you can contact us.

It is a statistically proven fact that smokers and other tobacco users are more likely to develop disease, suffer miserably later in life and die earlier than are people who dont use tobacco. I have experience in successfully making people quit smoking through a customized smoking cessation program which includes counseling medications and support do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

I frequently get angry. please tell me how to control it.?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist,
Hello, aggression is one of the many emotions that a human being come across in his life. Just like happiness, sadness, fear, joy; people feels angry at some point of time too. However when such aggression exceeds beyonds one's coping skills it becomes part of an illness. Excessive anger leads to distress and dysfunctions, mounting for development of a behavioural disorder. Many psychological disturbances can have anger as their characteristic symptoms such as:- depression, anxiety, psychosis, substance abuse, personality disturbances, cognitive disturbances. Besides this medical conditions as well can contribute to excess of aggression. Hence it requires a detailed assessment to reach out for the cause of aggression and hence to plan for its management as per. Management includes medications as well as psychological interventions for strengthening the coping skills. I would suggest you to seek a consultation in private with me, so that we can discuss in detail about your problems and can plan for a management as well.

lybrate-user, after going through your narrative, I feel that you are having Generalized anxiety disorder. This can be managed with yoga and pranayam, to a significant extent. If you consult or being referred to clinical psychologists, they will teach you relaxation training and cognitive behaviour therapy or mindfulness therapy. If your anxiety is still considerable, then you may be prescribed few drugs. I can understand how much it is affecting your academic performance and your self esteem. It can be definitely managed with yoga or by relaxation training etc. Please consult a psychiatrist. I wish you overcome your distress and do well in life.
