How to quite smoking and recover the damage cause by the smoking, sir I want to recover my body and wanna fit?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

I need psychological help. I don't know whether these are the symptoms of depression or not, but I feel so that I am getting depressed day by day. I feel sad, I always cry. Sometimes I feel like I want to commit something wrong but then I control myself. Yes I am in a relationship and we fight. But then whenever this situation comes where we fight, I get very weak. I cry a lot, can't sleep till 5 am and when I sleep. I sleep too late. Infact I sleep a bit too much. I feel that I am a lonely person, I feel isolated. Whenever I get to smile for a reason, I get scared along with. So that I do not get to cry again at the end of the day. Sometimes I want to cry my heart out, I want to cry out loud, but I can't. Yes I have self harmed many a times. I have even tried a lot to get myself busy into some activities but it won't help. Sometimes I feel like sharing these with someone but then I can't, I can't open up in front of any of my friends, neither my boyfriend as he might misunderstand me, all I do is just cry and cry. I want to add a few things 1. I had a traumatic childhood, I was molested by my teacher many a times when I was in standard 3, 2. When I was in class 9, I was molested by 3 boys, it was almost a physical molestation, not rape. 3. My mom and dad stay separated. When I was a kid, I used to see my mom and dad fought over small issues and he used to hit her. My dad once punished me by making me stand out of the house in the courtyard during night and that too Without clothes, that time I was in class 2. 4. My dad was an alcoholic person and he used to behave very bad with my mom, grandma and grandpa. He used to give many slangs after he came home totally drunk. 5. When I was in class 12, I attempted suicide by drinking toilet cleaner, for which I was admitted in the hospital an kept in ICU for a week. The incidents which happened with me during childhood created a deep impact on me. That time I was too small to understand that, but today when I remember those I cry a lot, feel ashamed, angry, guilty, helpless. Please help me out and let me know whether these are the symptoms of depression or not.

Smoking 3 cigarettes daily vs. Chewing 3 paan with tobacco daily.In comparison Which is worse for health?

Dear, Both are equally bad. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Yes, you appear to be very much negative and are taking things, situations and people in negative way. It seems you are scared and insecure about somethings in your life. Either accept your life's offerings and move on or else connect an expert to express yourself for guidance and support. Connect one to one quickly.

Of course it is a painful experience to loose a friend. But, we have to accept a universal fact that everything dear to us is subject to change, decay and separation. Let me give a few suggestipns to manage this situation. 1. If you lost your friend d ue to some conflicts, you take the first step to make a compromise subduing your ego, if any, even if you think it is your friend's mistake. 2. You can make the same level friendship with others too. Except change everything changes.

Am a 28 year old. Since 5 year am a chain smoker. Now am too weak. I wanna improve my health and I want to stop my smoking habit.

Obviously, anyone who smokes should try to quit, regardless of caste, creed, age, gender or social status. Many of my patients who are smokers have a particularly difficult time kicking the habit. I suspect this is related to dopamine imbalance. Smoking releases a chemical response that mimics pleasure. By keeping your stress level in check, you will have an easier overcoming this habit. Here are some additional suggestions suited to you. • Keep a journal to record your progress on a stop-smoking program. Record the benefit you experience from not smoking. • Exercise vigorously to cut down on cravings. • Avoid situations that normally trigger the desire to smoke. Be especially wary of situations that cause anger, boredom, or depression. • When you have the urge to smoke, perform this deep breathing exercise: 1. Inhale deeply through your nose. 2. Slowly exhale through your mouth. 3. Repeat 4 to 6 times. • Swallow Indian "Shyam Tulsi" . Never chew it, Tulsi has a lot of Mercury in it. Thus, you can rather swallow Tulsi leaves rather than chewing it and hurting your teeth. Moreover, you can also use the juiced form of the Tulsi leaves as a herbal medicine. Precisely speaking, when you apply raw Mercury on your teeth, your teeth will start falling immediately. Tulsi reduces the craving for smoking.

Dear Lybrate user, Nervousness is anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

You could be developing a serious problem if you continue to neglect this condition. Passivity is criminal and it is the devil's workshop to be idle. So get up and do regular exercises, sleep well and eat healthily. In the meantime, it is very important to visit a counselor and get some therapy done. You may get depressed and find it more difficult later. So immediately go and seek some professional help. It is possible that if you are on time that you could manage with counseling alone or else you may have to take medication also.

For this to come up at this age is significant because it is the last chance you will get to resolve it before it becomes a permanent negative trait. About the issue itself: do you know if this is a family trait, or is the family by anyways less to socialize, or have you had any problem with fear because of some family or childhood experience? have you ever been embarrassed in public by someone that it has left an indelible mark in your personality? you can take the answers to these questions to a counselor and resolve the same. Anyway, you must deal with your fear of people and it will be the best solution to your problem. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (i suggest you join the toastmasters club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone: it is called performance anxiety. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too! there are three important developments to have to make an autonomous personality: awareness, intimacy, and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of social anxiety to disappear from your life for good. It is also possible that after many performances, you will find it easier and easier to face and sing in front of audiences.

Dear user. I can understand. Thinking is a complex mechanism and Your mind's job is to think. If you allow you to think without having control over it, it will always wander into negative territories. You should train yourself to keep your thoughts under your control. Cognitive therapy will help you in this case. Take care.

Is it normal to get angry at things that have not happened? Like I will be thinking of my friend complain about her boy problems (when she has not, yet) and getting angry enough to where I wanna claw at her face and it shows on my face. Another example is that I was thinking of a certain kid insulting me and biting back in my head with words that'll ruin him. Is this normal?

Dear lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.
