Dear lybrate user. I can understand. As you already know, smoking is injurious to health. Smoking cigarettes can cause cancer and other respiratory problems. Quitting smoking is not an easy task, but can be achieved. There are many methods like deaddiction therapy. But the most useful method is using will power. Motivate him to quit smoking. Take care

Dear Lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) Lungs mixes oxygen in our blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like Nicotine etc. In Oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body organs like Lungs, Heart, kidney etc… How to quit: By willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" Reduce one by one day by day.

Are there side effects in prolonging the consumption of antidepressants? Do we become dependent on antidepressants?

Are there side effects in prolonging the consumption of antidepressants?
Do we become dependent on antidepressants?
Antidepressant drugs are inherently incapable of being addictive. However, many people misunderstand the continued need to take antidepressants for long periods as addiction. it is like antihypertensive and antidiabetic medicines. But there is scope for stoppage here. Side effects depend upon the exact medicine you are using. In general they are very safe. Side effects are usually due to improper usage.

Emotions can get pretty complicated when a pet dies. For example: you may feel angry if your friends don't seem to realize how much losing your pet means to you. Or perhaps you feel guilty that you didn't spend more time with your pet before he or she died. It's natural to feel a range of emotions when a pet dies. If you're like a lot of people, you may have had someone say to you, "Sorry, but it was only an animal. So is it normal to get upset over the death of a pet? Absolutely. After all, by the time we reach our teenage years, many of us have grown up with our pets, and they're part of the family. Just like losing a family member, when a pet dies people can go through a period of grieving. Dealing With Grief Grief can show up in many ways. Some people cry a lot. For others, the death may take a while to sink in. Some people temporarily lose interest in the things they enjoy doing or want to spend some quiet time alone. Others will want to keep busy to take their minds off the loss. It's also natural to feel like avoiding situations that involved your pet — such as the park where you used to walk your dog. For many people, losing a pet can be their first experience with death. Recognizing and sorting out feelings can be a big help. 1. Talking about a loss is one of the best ways to cope, which is why people get together after a funeral and share memories or stories about the person who has died. 2. Acknowledging your grief by talking about it with friends and family members can help you begin to feel better. 3.Recording them in a journal is helpful to many people, as is keeping a scrapbook. You can also write about your pet in a story or poem, draw a picture, or compose music. 4. Or plan a funeral or memorial service for your pet. Some people choose to make a donation in a pet's memory to an animal shelter or even volunteer there. All of these ideas can help you hold on to the good and happy memories. You'll never forget your pet. But in time the painful feelings will ease. And when the time comes, you may even find yourself ready to open your home to a new pet in need of a loving family.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.
