I first studied the human mind when I took up Psychology as a subject in High School. After finishing my schooling from Modern School, Barakhamba Road in 2005, I decided to further my passion for Psychology and Mental Health. Coming from a family of doctors, I went on to pursue MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery). After graduating from medical school in 2012, I joined MD (Doctor of Medicine) Psychiatry the same year. It was then that I had my first real life clinical experience with the fascinating field of mental health. After finishing my MD Psychiatry in 2015, I have worked at a renowned public hospital in New Delhi. My experience as a mental health professional over the last 5 years, has ranged from not only managing people with severely debilitating Psychiatric illnesses along with their caregivers and friends, but also, advising those who were simply going through stress in any form or shape. India has a largely youthful population, and it is imperative that the youth of this country be in tune with their mental health, and seek help at the earliest. I understand that apart from clinically diagnosed Psychiatric illnesses, the major chunk of stressors in daily life come from relationship and sexual issues.

Smoking Effects And How To Quit Smoking

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Smoking Effects And How To Quit Smoking

When you smoke, you not only harm yourself, but also the people around you. Your lungs aren’t the only organs affected by tobacco; smoking has lasting effects on the mouth, nasal cavity, stomach, pancreas, kidney, liver, rectum etc. Smoking affects you physical and mental health, and can easily become an addiction. 

Smoking increases a person’s risk of suffering from many types of cancer including oral cancer, stomach cancer, lung cancer etc, as well as the chance of having a stroke or cardiovascular disease. It can also cause diseases like Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Emphysema. Smoking speeds up the ageing process, and triggers the formation of wrinkles. It can also cause cavities, gum disease and suppress appetite. Heavy smokers often have difficulties with their sexual functioning by having difficulty reaching an orgasm, and can even be infertile. Men may have difficulty maintaining an erection, while women who smoke are more likely to suffer from complications during pregnancy. Decreased bone density and weakened eyesight are some of the other long-term effects of smoking. 

When it comes to quitting smoking, there is no one technique that can work for everyone. Smoking is an addiction that becomes a part of your normal routine, and hence, quitting cigarettes can be very difficult for many people. To successfully quit smoking, one must address both the addiction, and the habits that accompany it. 

The first step to quitting smoking is to set a date for when you will have your last cigarette. Inform your friends and family about your decision, especially those who you used to smoke with and ask for their support. If you feel you may be tempted to smoke around certain people, it may be a good idea to avoid them for a while. 

Given that smoking is a habit, it is natural to crave nicotine. You may experience withdrawal symptoms such as irritability, frustration, restlessness, insomnia, fatigue, constipation headaches and a reduced attention span. To cope with these effects, remind yourself why you quit in the first place. Find ways to distract yourself and reward yourself from time to time for not giving in to nicotine cravings. 

To cope with nicotine withdrawal symptoms, you may want to try cigarettes substitutes like nicotine gums or nicotine patches that deliver small doses of nicotine at regular intervals without the tar and other chemicals found in cigarettes. E-cigarettes, although popular these days, are not a safe alternative to smoking. Alternative therapies such as hypnosis and acupuncture can also help quit smoking. Consult your Psychiatrist, and be in regular follow up with him/her to stay clean and healthy.

I am 30 years old It has been 10 years of my smoking Now I am b12 deficient B12 - 186 Is it because of smoking?

I am 30 years old It has been 10 years of my smoking Now I am b12 deficient B12 - 186
Is it because of smoking?
There is no literature to suggest that smoking directly causes Vitamin B12 deficiency. However, smoking does significantly reduce appetite, which may in turn, cause vitamin deficiencies due to lesser food intake. Common causes of vitamin B12 deficiency include vegetarianism, and excessive alcohol consumption (which also causes decreased intake of nutrient rich food) I recommend: 1. Quit smoking 2. Consume fish once a week 3. Eat a diet rich in green vegetables and fruits

You appear to be having normal sleep pattern. The lucid dreams you describe, are dreams during the last phase of REM, or rapid eye movement sleep. You are likely to come out of sleep with the slightest of distraction during this phase. You need not worry. You don't need any intervention at present. Good luck.

Hi doctor my question is that I do smoke marijuana one joint in a day so will I get caught in nicotine test? Does marijuana contains nicotine? Thanks.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Unless you mix tobacco in your marijuana joint, it is highly unlikely that any test will detect nicotine. You will still test positive for THC though, which is a banned substance in India. I urge you to quit marijuana at the earliest.

If you have already gone through 1 month without smoking, I recommend you avoid any form of nicotine replacement therapy. Peak withdrawal symptoms start from the 5th to 7th day after quitting, and gradually subside. Your anxiety, craving and other withdrawal symptoms will soon fade away. Best to stay away from medicating yourself. Good luck.

How many ml (60 /90/180) of whisky is generally safe for daily consumption in the night with good food. What are the benefits of alcohol consumption when taken moderately (?) Daily?

The prescribed upper safe limit for men is upto 21 units of alcohol per week, and upto 14 units of alcohol for women. 1 unit is equal to 10 ml of absolute alcohol. Whiskey is around 45 - 50 % alcohol by weight, which would mean that 420 ml of whiskey would yield 210 ml of absolute alcohol, or 21 units, which is the prescribed upper safe limit of consumption for men per week. Please note that guidelines also prescribe there to be alcohol free days for the liver to recover from alcohol use. It is advisable to not exceed two standard drinks (25 ml each) on any single occasion.

Masturbation is a perfectly healthy habit, with no side effects whatsoever, unless it replaces daily activities. The frequency of your masturbation is absolutely normal. You can continue to masturbate even after marriage, as long as it does not interfere with your sex life with your wife. You should not face any problem in bed. Good luck.

There is no link between the problem you are describing and masturbation. Masturbation is a perfectly normal and healthy habit, and the safest form of sex. It does not have any side effects whatsoever. It is normal for a few drops of urine to dribble after the flow of urine is stopped, since men have a longer urethra than women. There is no medication for it, nor does it need any medical attention.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Masturbation causes erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation? How to stop masturbation habit.
There is absolutely no link between masturbation and erectile dysfunction/premature ejaculation. If anything, masturbation actually delays the time it takes to ejaculate. Unless it interferes with your daily routine, there is no indication to stop masturbating. Sex is an instinctual urge, and it is difficult, if not impossible to suppress it completely.

Alcohol Addiction And Its Effects!

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Alcohol Addiction And Its Effects!

While consuming alcohol in small amounts has its health benefits, using alcohol as an escape from daily social and work pressures could lead to harmful effects. Consuming alcohol more than the body can endure can pave the way for devastating health conditions, including permanent damage to the liver. 

1. What is alcohol addiction? 

When a person becomes so dependent on alcohol that it becomes difficult to function without it, the condition is called alcohol addiction. Untreated alcohol abuse can progress dependences to an addiction to alcohol characterized by physical dependence and/or inability to stop despite serious consequences. Once they begin drinking, alcoholics have little to no control over the amount they consume. 

2. Signs and symptoms of alcohol dependence are as follows: 

  • Significant hangovers and increase in time needed to recover from after-effects of alcohol use. 
  • Increased amount of alcohol consumed because of increased tolerance; or, decrease in the effects of alcohol use without substantial increases in the amount consumed. 
  • Reduced attention to personal and professional responsibilities. 
  • Repeated unsuccessful efforts to reduce alcohol consumption. 
  • Withdrawal symptoms when unable to consume alcohol. 
  • Continuing to consume alcohol despite knowing its harmful effects.

3. What are the short-term effects of alcohol addiction? 

  • The short-term effects of alcohol consumption above a specified level differ from person to person, depending on the age and weight of the person, and whether the alcohol has been taken on an empty or full stomach. 
  • Though the short-term effects of alcohol are pleasant in the first place, they may lead to poor concentration, diminishing reflexes, lack of coordination and many other conditions which may lead to slowing down of the important activities of the brain. 
  • It may also lead to emotional and psychological changes, sleep disorders, drowsiness, slurring of speech, nausea and vomiting. 
  • The short-term effects of alcohol are further amplified when it is consumed along with certain medications. 

4. What are the long-term effects of alcohol addiction? 

  • Daily consumption of alcohol for a prolonged period of time can lead to death of cells in the brain, causing nerve damage, eventually leading to poor mental and physical functions.
  • Alcohol addiction causes damage to the liver, and leads to a severe medical condition called cirrhosis, where the liver is required to be transplanted.
  • It may also lead to pancreatitis, which is a dangerous inflammation of the pancreas. 
  • When the body becomes tolerant to high doses of alcohol, consuming alcohol no more leads to short-term effects of alcohol. The condition, commonly referred to as tolerance, may lead to total dependence on alcohol in case of some individuals. 

If a person has become addicted to alcohol, he/she would keep on drinking regardless of the mental and physical effects of alcohol. It may also cause relationship troubles, a steady drop in sexual performance, loss of job, and many other devastating outcomes. Therefore, it is crucial to opt for treatment while the situation is under control. Otherwise, it may affect all aspects of a person’s life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

The only way to get your lip colour back to normal is to stop smoking completely. Smoking causes insufficient Oxygen to the peripheral parts of the body, the lips being one of them.

Dear Abhishek, It is one of life's great stressors to lose a job you are passionate about. Remember that unemployment is temporary, and you will certainly find another job if you try hard enough. In the meanwhile, you may continue the medication you are receiving for Depression, and also can take ayurvedic medicines along with them. Good luck.

Sorry to hear about your friend. He will need to be evaluated by a Psychiatrist and possibly admitted for physician assisted withdrawal, which in every day language means Detoxification from the substances he's addicted to. Please do not delay things since the matter needs urgent attention.

Social Anxiety can be overcome by behavioral therapy. You can do I yourself at home. Flooding, a form of behavioral therapy, is particularly helpful for people with social anxiety. To practice flooding, simply expose yourself to as many social situations as possible, and feel the anxiety. Gradually, your anxiety related to social events will diminish and disappear.
