I am 40 Years old and 15 Years of alcohol addiction, I take 360 Ml daily, Now I want to withdraw this habit, as my target of enjoying all Kind of valid Drugs have been fulfilled. Usually I could control 3-4 days without Alcohol, but after this I start thinking that I am not addicted and than I again start taking the same. Need to know the side effects of withdrawal.

This is the deception very artfully proposed by the unconscious mind and at a time that you are vulnerable it will convince you that you can quit whenever you want and that it is easy. Then you fall into the trap all over again. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement: three years to be exact with therapy. Alcohol withdrawal syndrome can be a life-threatening condition in people who have been drinking heavily and then either stop or significantly reduce their alcohol consumption. Symptoms can begin as early as two hours after the last drink, persist for weeks, and range from mild anxiety and shakiness to severe complications, such as seizures and delirium tremens (also called DTs). The death rate from DTs -- which are characterized by confusion, rapid heartbeat, and fever -- is estimated to range from 1% to 5%. Because alcohol withdrawal symptoms can rapidly worsen, it's important to seek medical attention even if symptoms are seemingly mild. Appropriate alcohol withdrawal treatments can reduce the risk of developing withdrawal seizures or DTs. It's especially important to see a doctor if you have other health conditions such as infections, heart disease, lung disease, or a history of seizures. If seizures, fever, severe confusion, hallucinations, or irregular heartbeats occur, take the patient to an emergency room

Due to this ignorance she is always depressed , I have many times tried to console her and made her trust that he loves him a lot but still there are no changes in her behaviour.

Dear lybrate-user it is wonderful that you care so much about your friend. I suggest you ask her to meet a counsellor as she may be penning all hopes and expectations on this particular relationship especially because of her loss. And this may take a toll on her relationship because no one person can fulfill all our needs or expectations.

Hlo sir,
I am feeling depressed due to my personal reason nd I am feeling very please pls tell me what should I do?
At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, 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, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch 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 scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS

Dear , you are a wise person. You already know that smoking is a bad habit. You are just 39 and I know many people who left smoking after many years of smoking. I always say it is very easy if you have the will power. Say no to tobacco. Actively engage in physical activities and outdoor games. Drink plenty of water and fruit juices. Both combined, manages the craving part of your body. I suggest you to stop it abruptly, now itself. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, your headache and body pain might be because of a number of reasons like, lack of sleep, stress, lack of proper food, vitamin deficiencies etc. You need to consult a doctor, who will check you physically and only then will be able to diagnose the real cause of your discomfort. It is advisable to visit your doctor first and follow his/her advise. Later on once you start feeling better physically, then again check with yourself, if you still feel depressed or sad then you may consult a counsellor, who will help you to get rid of your negative thoughts. 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.

It appears that probably you have performance anxiety. If you are feeling stressed, then that means there is some reason but you are not able to understand what is causing this stress. Try to find out the source/trigger of your stress and then work on it. Each person in this world is different. You will not find a person who's ideas and thoughts will mactch with you 100%. But definitely you will have like minded people, you need to search for them. The people with whom you generally interact with may not be sharing your thoughts, ideas, and likes because of their different backgrounds and different life experiences. That is why you are finding it difficult to connect with them. There are many groups online also where you can find like minded people. About your anxiety about talking to people, do you worry about how they will perceive you? are you not confident about your social skills? if it is so, please practice the conversations when you are alone. Have realistic expectations from yourself. You also can take help of a counsellor who will help you in improving your social and interpersonal skills.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tension during and before examination is called performance anxiety. To overcome exam related performance anxiety, you should know yourself, your subject, exams and your study patterns. Once you study systematically and to the point, there is no need to be panic before or during the exams. “Effective learning” techniques should help you. Take care.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in alcohol. Also , remember that smoking is harmful to your body Please remember that alcohol is toxic to your body , mind and well-being. The earlier you can stop this habit , the healthier it can be for you. The lower taste and sinful habit of alcohol can be stopped by replacing it with the higher taste. Simply read nice books which give you a higher meaning to life than chemicals in alcohol.

Dear lybrate-user, You have 2 disorders - one is seizure and headache, due to tape worm. You have dewormed your self with noworm. You are also on eptoin to control fits occurring again. Depending on the type of worm, you should avoid eating pork or beef in future. I am not sure about tingling and numbness. Please get a MRI brain scan to see whether tape worm cysts have disappeared fully. Another is your OCD, which might be before tapeworm itself. OCD causes depression, negative thoughts, weakness, anger, fell like hurting self, etc. OCD also needs treatment. Please go to a psychiatrist and take independent treatment for OCD along with eptoin 300.

Mujhe neend nahi aati aur dimag me sonch chalti rehti hai bas weham hote hai help me.

Mujhe neend nahi aati aur dimag me sonch chalti rehti hai bas weham hote hai help me.
" how to naturally beat sleep disturbance" got published: one of the main reasons for not getting proper sleep is that the plans made during the day time or earlier do not succeed and mind speculates or wanders to find ways to make those plans work. These mental speculations repeat in mind at time of sleeping. So, due to plans not working as the mind likes to, the mind remains in the agitated state due to being unable to find a solution. This leads to frustration which avoids the mind to go in sleep mode. This leads to not getting proper sleep. The solution to the problem does not lie in thinking intentionally further about such plans, but in faith surrender to the supreme. Instead of thinking about the plans it is better to read a nice book, listen to nice music or talks which do not allow mind to get frustrated with mental speculations. Stress is so all-pervading in this material world that everyone is tortured by it. Stress takes many forms. We are stressed by health problems, financial problems, interpersonal problems and many more. The solution for all varieties of stress is to understand that its underlying cause is bodily consciousness, the false identification of the self with the body. As soon as one realizes that he is not his body and that his real happiness is based on harmonizing his consciousness with the supreme consciousness and he then learns the art of doing this, his stress goes flying out the window to be replaced with profoundly sweet transcendental bliss. -sda.

Dear lybrate-user, concentration is attention span. Attention span fluctuates according to the task. If the task is interesting there may not be any problems. Otherwise, it is difficult to be attentive. To have more attention span, you should learn to make the task creative. You should love the job and be dedicated. Take care.

Stop worrying, be calm and analyze your problem to get solution, consult your family well wishers and friends, you will get solution. No problem exists without solution, so be optimistic. Take bath twice, sufficient sleep, regular diet, exercise and be in company of friends or family, do not be alone. If like visit any temple, chant any liking mantra. Time is a good healer, so your bad time will pass away and good will comes.
