Hi, Before you make an attempt to stop masturbating, there’s an important issue to deal with first. This issue is important because masturbation is a misunderstood addiction. Masturbation is normal and not unhealthy. It only becomes a problem when one gets addicted to it and it starts affecting his functioning in different areas of his life. You can not suffer physically or mentally because of masturbation but you can suffer because of the thoughts or stress you take as a result of being addicted to it. The immense pleasure derived from frequent masturbation can be extremely addictive. However, this addiction can become an obsessive activity that interferes with daily living. Furthermore, it may result in loss of sex drive, depression, or even impotence. To prevent these potentially severe side effects, we will reveal the ten most effective ways to end chronic masturbation. 1. Rubber band Place a rubber band around your wrist. Every time you get the urge to masturbate, flick the rubber band. This will eventually condition you to associate masturbation with the pain, thereby deterring you from the act. The mere thought of masturbation may even cease to cross your mind. 2. Distraction When you get the urge to masturbate, quickly engage in an alternative activity. Whether you pick up a book or go to the movies with friends, participate in anything that will successfully distract you from your masturbatory desires. 3. Therapy Do not hesitate to admit that you need professional help. Therapists offer beneficial coping mechanisms to help overcome chronic masturbation. Beyond recommending daily tools to break the habit, they also provide a supportive environment for open communication. 4. Help from loved ones If you have a romantic partner, be open with them about your condition. This should remove any feelings of guilt or shame associated with chronic masturbation, as you will no longer have to hide a "dirty little secret" from your loved one. 5. Replace that pleasure with a different one Find other pleasurable activities that bring you joy. Find an enjoyable hobby that requires your full attention. For example, if you enjoy art take a painting class. 6. Jogging Jogging and other forms of exercise are a great way to take masturbation off your mind. Jogging will require your complete attention - from listening to your heartbeat to inhaling each new breath of fresh air. Masturbation will have no place on the forefront of your mind. So the more you engage in exercise, the less time you will have to think about masturbating. Eventually, you may be able to overcome your addiction. 7. Yoga Yoga is an extremely relaxing activity. It requires you to concentrate solely on breathing and posture. This newfound focus should prevent obsessive thoughts about masturbation. 8. Evaluate your life Analyze your life. Determine what makes you happy and what does not. You may find that something stressful in your life is causing this chronic masturbation. Elucidating the underlying stressor will enable you to resolve it, ultimately allowing you to overcome the addiction. 9. A new friend If your chronic masturbation is due to intimacy issues, consider purchasing a pet as a therapeutic measure. They will accept you for who you are without judgment. They will provide you the companionship you may need to stop masturbating. 10. Speed dating This is an alternative solution to intimacy problems. Speed dating is a fun way to get to know a diverse range of potential romantic partners, without the added pressure of traditional dating. This can be a fun and effective way to ultimately acquire a new girlfriend or boyfriend, which may therefore reduce your reliance on masturbation. There are so many enjoyable activities that you will miss out on if you don't overcome chronic masturbation, so hopefully this article has provided you the necessary tools to do so. Always remember the key is self control. consult for more query.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. This happens because you are irritated ln seeing that girl. This also means you had several bad experiences with that girl. Why don't you shift to anothed room? this problem will constantly present itself unless you distance yourself from that or change the attitude. I suggest psychological counselling. Take care.

It is quite obvious that smoking tobacco does not agree with your constitution. It is not that it is good for others but your body reacts like it cannot tolerate the effects of tobacco smoke. The only solution is for you to give it up completely. Anyway, who would want to continue in a habit that gives you so much of discomfort?

Dear, I can understand. Anxiety disorder and depression are usually treated with a combination of pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy and counseling, meditation and relaxation techniques. You are already undergoing pharmacotherapy (treatment with the help of medicines). Other therapies are to be practised for easy management of your mental disorders. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to consult a psychologist for counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, you are on the right platform. I suggest you to consult a psychologist for psychotherapy. It seems your confidence and self esteem is really low, there you need counseling and after screening if suggested by psychologist you may need to take medication. To be fully alright, I advise you to follow what I suggested. Apart from that, practice deep breathing. Deep breathing can be a great way to manage anxiety during or before social situations. Deep breathing can help reduce the physical symptoms of your anxiety, many of which are a result of breathing too quickly. Do breathing exercises everyday so it becomes second nature and comes naturally when you're in a stressful situation. Breathe through your abdomen, not your chest. To do this, lay on the floor or sit straight in a chair. Place a hand on your chest, the other on your abdomen. As you inhale, the hand on your abdomen should move while the one on your chest stays mostly at the same place. Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose. Hold for a count of 7. Exhale slowly through your mouth for a count of 8. Gently contract your abdominal muscles to get all the air from the lungs. This is extremely important. Complete 5 deep breaths. Try 1 deep breath per 10 seconds. You will have set backs. This happens to everyone. Don't dwell on failure. Remember, you are learning. Think of ways that you will do better next time. Find people who are right for you. Choose those who make you happiest over those who look popular and cool. Consult me for counseling/psychotherapy. All the best.

I am Working in private organisation I am 39 years old. I don't weather I am in depression or not. I am not having interest to do work, I want to sleep or watch TV. No one talk to me. I am to stike into my house nobody disturb me. Not even my husband nor son.This is my problem

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You most certainly are depressed. It does not help if people ignore you: this could lead to an escalation of your plight to worsening conditions. Do not neglect this any further. Go and meet a psychiatrist and a counselor immediately, along with your husband. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, makes you too lazy to even think etc. You will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of 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 scotching heat. I hope you can get your husband and son to love you and spend time with you. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings.

I have been smoking weed (marijuana) from last 2 years, what are the effects of smoking weed? Can I stop smoking? How?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
These are the following effects of smoking weed: SHORT-TERM EFFECTS Sensory distortion Panic Anxiety Poor coordination of movement Lowered reaction time After an initial “up,” the user feels sleepy or depressed Increased heartbeat (and risk of heart attack) LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF MARIJUANA Reduced resistance to common illnesses (colds, bronchitis, etc.) Suppression of the immune system Growth disorders Increase of abnormally structured cells in the body Reduction of male sex hormones Rapid destruction of lung fibers and lesions (injuries) to the brain could be permanent Reduced sexual capacity Study difficulties: reduced ability to learn and retain information Apathy, drowsiness, lack of motivation Personality and mood changes If you want to get off weed, the first step is deciding to do so. Then take a few steps in the right direction. Change your habits. If you hang around with friends who smoke weed, find other people to do things with who aren’t using it. Build yourself up nutritionally. This will help with the withdrawal symptoms. Drugs rob the body of vitamins and minerals, particularly B complex, vitamin C and calcium and magnesium. Find some activities you like to do, maybe something you enjoyed before you started using. Get out and see the world you’ve been missing in the drug induced haze. There are withdrawal symptoms when a person stops smoking marijuana. Since they are not as dramatic as heroin withdrawal symptoms, some people think they do not exist. Some people experience irritability, sleeping difficulties, depression, night sweats and loss of appetite. Some also suffer anxiety and fatigue. Some people can overcome these symptoms and get through it on their own. Some can’t and need help. Even if they get off the drug for awhile, they go back to it as they are still faced with the same problems and difficulties that led them to using it in the first place. Seek professional help.

Hi I am 28 year old male. I am software engineer. I think I am in depression because of my wife behavior. Please help me to save my life…We have been married more than 5 years now. My wife is good, however she is short tempered. Sometime she does’t even hesitate to scream at me or at my parents or at her parents or at our kid even in a party or a public place. I and her parents tried a lot to talk to her but all gone waste. Most of the time, the main reason of her screaming is any external intervention. For example she has her own way to do everything however if you try to show her a better way then she gets angry and it take her almost 2-3 days to behave normal. I really need a practical advice to handle this situation. Some time I am feeling of sadness, lack of concentration, slowness in activity and thought, or thoughts of suicide without any reason.

Hi I am 28 year old male. I am software engineer. I think I am in depression because of my wife behavior. Please help...
Let us first deal with problems of your wife. It seems she has anger management problems. It's natural to disagree or get annoyed at somebody's opinion if it gets against our own, but we need to learn to have a balanced response, no matter where we are, alone or in a party. Such uncontrolled anger outbursts can be due to personality problems, hormonal disturbances, mood disorders etc which need treatment with some medications and counseling. She would definitely be much better with treatment. As regards you, if you are bothered by your wife's behaviour for 5 years and feel sad and harming your own self, it means that you have given up on her. Also it seems that your mind is ina helpless situation and you find life worthless. You also need counselling for the same and some medicines to calm your state of mind.
