Why is it so that despite medication a friend is unable to give up his craving for alcohol?

M. Phil Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Hyderabad
It' s probably because of his unstable environment or troubled relationships. He needs to check into a good rehabilitation center in order to be treated holistically. He should also be receiving psychotherapy.

You need to take medication as per your doctor's recommendation. Do not discontinue, alter, modify or change it in any way. Take it for the prescribed period of time. Premature termination of treatment can lead to relapse or worsening of symptoms. It becomes more difficult to treat after that.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated. Masturbation is a very healthy form of sexual outlet, do not feel guilty about it. Nearly 99% of men and more than 60% of women masturbate. It starts from adolescence and goes on in some people even till death. The pleasure (orgasm) from masturbation is said to be unique from sexual intercourse. In men, most of the liquid contains only water and some fructose and hormones. Hence it does not drain your energy. Many equate masturbation/ seminal fluid loss to lack of energy, impotency and so on. Many quacks, religious heads and pseudo healers also propagate the idea that masturbation is a disorder/ and wrongful behavior and instil fear on the mind of innocent men and women (we can see posters in train and bus stand, offering help for this behavior). Consult a psychiatrist, if you have excessive masturbation guilt or compulsive masturbation. Compulsive masturbation is when a person continues with frequent masturbation neglecting his/ her other work like education, job or social obligations. In fact masturbation reduces the sexual tension and helps focus on task at hand better.

You are just 19 years and you have already given your life away to someone else!!! Believe me this, no one is worth dying unless you are int eh act of saving them. You are too young to give your heart away like this and that too to someone who can believe you. If you have proven untrustworthy, then his lack of faith in you is understandable. But if that it not true, then this boy ahs a problem of insecurity around you and this could be detrimental to this relationship in the long run too. These signs are supposed to be eye-openers and should help you understand and therefore make the right decision to close this relationship now. Love does not secure a relationship, however intense it is. If you cannot make a decision even after this, then you have a weakness and a problem about discernment. So the writing is clearly on the wall: move out of this relationship because it is life-threatening. It is also disturbing your studies and your nature and your emotions. True love is supposed to bring the best out of you two. If it does not like it is now, run away from it.

Hi, your vit b 12 level is normal but on lower side. Take multivitamin tablets containing good amount of vit b 12 for fifteen days. Also you need counseling for your fear and anxiety. Either meet a counselor in person for this or you may have a telephonic counselling session with me here on Lybrate.

Hello have you seen any physician for this particular problem, if not I would suggest that first you need to get your check up done by a physician and even if the similar problem persists then you can write again. And secondly, you need to find the reason of getting emotional or anxious first and need to specifically mention the reason here, so that we may work on that reason which is causing anxiety. All the best

I am 19 year old male. I have these headaches, these are due to gastric problem or tension. My eyes start paining very easily after using laptop for few minutes and sometime I also have this anxiety problem. Like sometime when I am with my friends or family. It feels like am I really belong here, and then it become hard to breath. And I also have this suicidal mind more than 10 times a day I feel like ending my life. I already lost interest in my classes/studies. I do not like to do anything new. And sometime I become depressed but sometime not very frequently. So I am asking that it is possible that these all problems are made up by my brain. Because when I become angry I harm myself like I punch on the wall, or scratch myself till bleeding or beat myself up with stick. That make my headache low. But sometime I do it these thing without any situation. Sometime my hand shake, I think that is due to my smoking habit but I am not chain smoker. So please tell me is there any problem or just my mind playing with me.

You are indulging in self-harm which is providing you temporary relief from headache. Has something traumatic happened in your early life? I will suggest you to visit a psychiatrist as soon as possible. You may need some medications to stabilize before you can begin with psychotherapy. You need to go for counselling to talk about the real issues bothering you deep inside. Do help yourself.

I started smoking in 2010 & i smoke quite a bit much than normal ( means avg. 10 cigarette per day ) so i just want to ask how many months or years it will take to come back to normal life / healthy life as i never smoked if i quit today. Also is there any medication available to quit ? please reply me

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Yes. If u stop cigaratte u will be like before only in few weeks. For that u need to set a quit date. Dont be too much enthusiastic and keep the quit date as per ur convenience. It is not necessary that the quit date should be very close to the day u decide to quit smoking. Lower down ur cigaratte slowly, initially lower down the number per day than when it comes to 2-3 cigarates per day, u can increase the interval period between two cigarattes. Finally u will be able to quit. For craving u need to be highly motivated and still if u feel for cigaratte go for nicotene gums which is awailable in market. Take care

Im 24 n I have just completed my studies last year.

Communicate with your parents about why they won't let you marry. If direct communication is not possible, involve a family member or friend to intervene. If that does not work either, take the help of a psychologist/ counselor/ psychiatrist. In the meanwhile, set some life goals for yourself. Take up a job or do a course that will help you in the field of your choice. Marriage is an important part of your life, but it is not everything. It is possible once you give this situation some time, things will work out. However if you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, consult a psychiatrist immediately.

It is very common to get a mental depression after such accidents. Even for a young man, it will be difficult to accept the sudden changes in life styles such as restrictions in movements (to b bed-ridden for months), dependency on others for activities of daily living, pains associated with surgery or post-operative care, disfigurement of body, etc. Due to which he may loose hope and interest in life leading to depression causing loss of memory and changes in sleep and hunger, etc. Think of a 74-year-old man in such a situation. My suggestions are 1. He must have more social, emtional and physical supports from his family members, friends and social network than ever before in his life. 2. Since your economic status is not good, you have to find a nearest hospital or a qualified physician at your location to give symptomatic treatment for your uncle till the end.

Tobacco kills irrespective of religion, culture, gender and age. Thus, in order to create awareness regarding the hazardous effects of consuming tobacco an initiative was started in 1987 by the World Health Organization.

Tobacco is the chief ingredient of cigarette and there are over 4000 chemicals compounds created by burning cigarette, 69 of those are known to cause cancer as well as damage the heart and its blood vessels! 6 of these chemicals and their actual usage and side effects are listed below:

  1. Nicotine: A naturally occurring chemical in tobacco, which when reaches your brain triggers adrenaline, by increasing your blood pressure and gives you a high. It is a chemical which makes you addictive to cigarette.

  2. Arsenic: A common chemical used in rat poison. Exposure to high levels of arsenic can be fatal. Over time, it accumulates in smokers’ bodies and can lead to liver and kidney damage, irregular heartbeat and shortage of red and white blood cells.

  3. Formaldehyde: Formaldehyde is a colorless, strong smelling chemical which is used to preserve dead bodies and is found in cigarette smoke. Short term exposure to it can cause nausea, skin irritation and burning in eyes, nose and throat, it is a lesser known fact that long term exposure to it can cause cancer.

  4. Benzene: A flammable liquid commonly found in gasoline, coal tar and crude oil. Long term exposure to Benzene decreases red blood cells, damages bone marrow and increases your risk of blood cancer (leukemia).

  5. Polonium: A highly radioactive substance and regular consumption can cause diarrhea, vomiting and hair fall. Over time it causes severe damage to kidney and liver along with your DNA.

  6. Cyanide: The most lethal type of poison, which prevents the body to use and absorb oxygen when inhaled.

Would you still want to hang till death? I doubt. It’s never too late to quit! Seek help now on Lybrate. Share this with your friends and family to spread awareness about how deadly every single cigarette is.

Each relationship has its own place and importance. They are not comparable rather they supplement and complement each other. You are playing dual role of daughter and wife. Try to maintain respect for everyone including yourself and your decisions. Don't force your husband on your parents. Gradually when they see that you loved and meant to marry him, they might turn around. Remember that you do have the right to marry of your own choice. What you need to be sure of is your reasons for marrying this boy.
