I can understand if the problem is with a teen or young adult, but you r 35 years. Still this happens with few men, who are brought up with few exposure to opposite sex interaction. I suggest you go to behavior therapy to a lady psychiatrist or clinical psychologist, it will immensely help. All the best.

How do I cut down on ciggeret's? Is smoking one ciggeret a day harmful for our health? What can I do to stop this habit?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You should not cut down but stop all at once, and yes even one cigarette is harmful for your health.Nicotine gums are just an aid and need not be mandatorily used. You may use nicotine patches if you want any help to curb the physical urge since nicotine is the dependency causing substance in tobacco smoke. When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. 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. 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 and you must remind yourself about this every day. 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 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.

I m very aggressive nd goes annoyed on every second moment. I m unable to control my anger.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If this has been a pattern for a long time I suggest that you meet with a counselor and with your parents. Your parents will be able to throw some light on where this anger is likely to come from. None of the feelings are to be controlled. The way you express them has to be appropriate. Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands; scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. Unexpressed feelings will hurt you back by clinging on to a favorite organ and troubling it enough to cause it to malfunction or lead to its total dysfunction. You can also hand over the feeling to God, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too. All feelings must be expressed without exception.

Don't focus on removing negative thoughts, it will come back even stronger! Focus on engaging in positive activities, productive activities, challenging and satisfying activities and leave the negative thoughts alone, they will go away! no need to bother about them. Very useful technique! try it out.. Go out and take a brisk walk everyday, mingle with friends, give more time to hobbies, restart old given up hobbies, eat and sleep regularly, relive the good old days, enjoy life! you become what you think you are!

Dear user. I can understand. I do not know for how many years you are married, what is the general behavior of your husband and in-laws etc. Therefore it is very difficult to answer your question directly. But I can say very clearly that many family relationships break just because of misunderstanding and lack of trust. You must understand clearly whether you are actually and correctly understands your husbands behavior, of just blaming. If you are hundred percent perfect and right (if you feel) then we will talk about your husband's behavior and in that case he needs family counseling. Take care.

My age is 18. I am a good student of class 12 remaining few months before my final examination. I have no friends except my boyfriend for last 5 years and my life is stable one covering only study and limited liberties. But recently I met a boy, my elder brother's classmate and I think I am attracted to him. He is also very good friend of mine and we spent lots of Time together. I don't know his feelings bt I think more and more I am going addicted to him slowly. I don't want to cheat or hurt my boyfriend and don't want to down myself in my inner eye. I can't study properly for this also.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Now you have tso boy friends. Now you are unable to choose between them. You are an youngster. Your present duty is to study hard and obtain good scores. At this juncture, conflicts will harm your education. Whatever, we can tackle it after exams, not now. Take care.

Hello doctor, I got married in Jan 2017 .my husband is eight years elder than me. N this is arrange marriage. We didn't get much time before marriage to spend with each other. Because he leaves in canada n I leaves in India. We only talk on phone before 2 months of marriage. He came here for marriage. After that he went back. We spent 18 days together after marriage. N now we usually talk on phone. I got to know that he is short tampered. He usually yell on me because of other persons. N he use very abusive language for them in front of me. Those persons are some time my project manager, some times my brother ,or my sister .I don't know people around me. He have problem with all. N when I defend them that you are misunderstanding then he never listen n screams on me. N always complain to my mother in law about me. I don't know he is mentally fine or not. But what to do now I am afraid. My family too scared to send me there in canada now for him. Please guide me what to do Thanks n regards.

Try to get him realise what he does. In India, A female chatacter is seen as a holy importance. He needs to inderstand you or you can give him chance of getting better. The treatment for your complain is tendem love and intimacy. Get urself here prepare for giving him a chance or coming back if he can not change. Marriage is a initiation of happiness not sadness. Be calm and get him a chance. Its not called medical problem. I can only give advice. It may seem/be wrong also.

Dear lybrate-user, all these symptoms are stress related. Can call it stress disorder. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress.

What's the best way to quit smoking. My Friend didn't want to quit it at first place as she loves to smoke. Now I have persuaded her to quit it. Please help what should I do to make her quit smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have done a wonderful job convincing her to give up smoking so easily. But now is the tough task. Any way, she cannot stop easily, if she herself does not want to. It must ideally come from her own desire to stop. You can force her to stop by admitting her in a rehabilitation center, if they also do not allow smoking (unfortunately many centers dole out daily quota of cigarettes). If you admit her in one of the naturopathy institutes, she will have to abstain from the consumption and that will help her to quit. Do not take her out for at least one month or more. When she comes back keep her under vigil and monitor her so that neither she nor other domestic staff will pick cigarettes for her. She may experience a spurt in eating or drinking juices etc. Let her indulge in those foods for some time, only. Put her on an exercise program, and have a thorough medical check up to identify any other damage to her system. If she is unwilling to visit a counselor, get one to come home and talk to her. She can be coaxed to maintain her abstinence under the guidance of a counselor. Make her do meditation; make her stick to a regular schedule of activities, have her involved in interesting and responsible activities. Educate her about all the harmful effects of tobacco smoke and the damage it brings others in the house who smoke both the side-stream smoke and the second-hand smoke. Acupuncture is excellent treatment too.

This problem related to psychological. No need of any medicines. Memory exercises, memory management are required to you. Write main thoughts on note book repeatedly read it. Always memorise your main thoughts. Do not give any chance of negative thoughts. Tell your main thoughts to your friendly. Write as a text in cell phone as a text read it every day. Write your today works in today arrangements column in cell phone read it do it. Urgent works also write in the urgent column in cell phone. Use cell phone as your own clinic. Read and think and tell always positive aspects only. Best of luck.
