Hi doctor im 28 years old male I do have sleep disorder from the past 6 years and I have not take serious action but ...
In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

He is a daily smoker. We cannot prevent himself from smoking. How can he get rid off.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
It is difficult to make someone change their behavior if they are not willing and open. Smoking is no different. If person wants to stop smoking through his own initiative following things might help. Smoking is one of the few habits which takes very systematic approach and needs lot of support and individualized stretagies to quit successfully. Data such as - since how long are you smoking and how many cigarettes a day you consume are important information. Also have you tried quitting it earlier? How successful were you? And what are your personal reasons to stop smoking? All these are also important part of your success stretagy. Broadly speaking your reasons for not smoking work as your motivator. The stronger the reasons behind not smoking the higher the motivation and thus higher the chances for you to be successful. Also your body will have a withdrawal symptoms and it is very important to come up with strategies and solid plan to counter these withdrawal symptoms. These strategies should be tailormaid as per your need and situation. If you consider these and many other individualized approach and if you have a solid support through out your journey. You would be able to make a shift from being a smoker to a non smoker. I do have a 3 to 6 month package to help smokers step by step. To come up with stretagies that work and to customise the support system. You could either contact someone in your city or contact me to work either telephonically or via Internet based system.  Hope this helps Wishing you very best Try long distance running as a form of exercise. Join runner's group. That might help as well.

Dear , Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. 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. Take care.

You both need to talk to each other. If you find difficult to sort out issues among yourselves, consult a psychiatrist/ psychologist. The fact that you are seeking help shows you care for your wife and wish to avoid thoughts of her previous relationships. However you need to get clarifications about your thought and feelings that keep haunting your mind.

Dear lybrate user, this is typical in a couple relationship. This happens because the boy and the girl belong to completely different families which have different values and beliefs. Both - the boy and the girl have certain expectations from their partner, which is a result of their own perception. When these expectations are not met, the problems in the relationship starts. It is advisable that either, you both or at least you yourself need to consult a counsellor for pri- marital counselling. The counsellor will do the needful. Please seek professional help, before getting married, irrespective of whether you remain in the same relationship or you want to move on.

My question is psychologic. I am a good looking fair boy. One year ago I had married with a girl which is whitish in color and not too beautiful not ugly. I done marriage under the pressure of my parents. Now I am feeling complexion as I look my all frds wife they are almost everyone fair and beautiful. And now I feel complexion to go to any party and also when I look to my wife I feel cheated and I am not talking with her very nicely. I am not going to any public place with her inspite of her nature is very nice. Help.

hi, you are looking at the shallow aspect of life. If you wanted to marry a beautiful fair girl then you could have told your parents about it instead of getting married under pressure and hurting your wife for no fault of hers! You maybe finding it hard because your wife doesn't fit the category of beautiful that you were looking for in your spouse but there are other aspects to a person's personality other than beauty. You mentioned that your wife is nice by nature, will it be possible to accept her for her niceness which is a boon these days....connect with her other qualities, connect to the person she is, at a human level. How would it have been if your wife was beautiful but not 'nice', would you be happy then? You feeling conscious about taking your wife among your get-togethers has got to do with your own unacceptable of her as she is. How much happy are your friends in their married life is a secret best known to them. The day you will learn to connect with her at humane level, you may realise her true beauty which will only enhance with the growing years together, skin beauty will only fade with time and it's the emotional connect that you will build with her will last for long. So look deeper into her as a living being with feelings and emotions and don't judge her for her colour. She too has the right to reject you for the way you treat her but she is being kind to you. Spend some quality time together and explore each others likes, wants, needs and dreams. This will bring to your notice other truly beautiful aspects of each other and help in creating a secure relationship.
