I smoke 6-7 cigarettes per day. Should I consider reducing the amount. It never crosses 7.what are the risks.

Hi lybrate-user! I appreciate that you have made up your mind to slowly reduce the number of cigarettes from the usual numbers. Yes you are right, one can definitely reduce the numbers and then finally stop completely. First of all one thing that your mind should know is cigarette smoking does not give relaxation to you that instead causes health issues like lung cancer, throat cancer, change of voice, and you will not be able to tolerate a simple problematic situation in your life. Each and Every cigarette packet mentions that Cigarette smoking is injurious to health and causes lung cancer. So now it is time for you to stop completely. Find out ways to enjoy life to the utmost then you can finally stop completely. Take care. Be relaxed. If you are interested to contact me either through text chat when you find difficulty to manage. With regards

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - Know More About It!

MBBS, Structure of Intellect learning Specialist
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - Know More About It!

PTSD is a neurological disorder which affects individuals after experiencing severe traumatic situations. The individuals find it difficult to cope with such situations and often have flashbacks of those moments of trauma. Stress, as a result of the trauma wrecks the normal nervous functioning of the individuals. PTSD can have the following symptoms:

Re experiencing:

  1. Flashbacks of the traumatic event
  2. Nightmares, which are repetitive and severely distressing
  3. Images from the traumatic event intruding during the day
  4. Reminders of the event provoking distress

Avoidance or rumination:

  1. Those suffering from PTSD avoid being reminded of the trauma, such as people, situations or circumstances associated with the event. They try to suppress memories associated with the event.
  2. Many others ruminate excessively and prevent themselves from coming to terms with it.

Hyper arousal or emotional numbing:

  1. Hyper vigilance for threat
  2. Exaggerated sterile response
  3. Irritability
  4. Difficulty concentrating
  5. Sleep problems
  6. Difficulty experiencing emotion
  7. Emotional detachment from others
  8. Giving up activities which mattered before the trauma
  9. Amnesia for salient aspects of the trauma

How to manage PTSD?

The following tips will help to come to terms with your traumatic episode and ease stress:

  1. If symptoms are mild, then observing the patient is preferred
  2. If symptoms are chronic, then trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) proves to be beneficial
  3. Alternative treatments include eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
  4. Comorbid symptoms such as depression, general anxiety and alcohol or substance abuse are secondary to PTSD. PTSD should be treated first and then the associated symptoms should be addressed.
  5. Mindfulness meditation (not a treatment option) helps in recognizing cognitive dissonances and affected thought patterns and aids in recognizing and overcoming their influence. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Basically you should develop interest in yourself to improve and shine in Life. You have to be self luminous, that is genious, no exernal force is necessary for this. However guidance is necessary. Prioritize/ concentrate on important thing -studies/ play/food/ sleep/ sociaizing. Then your mental and Physical helth is maintained and will support you to remember bettter, Nothing else is required, Remeber even a rank student is not sure if he passes or fails the exams. So you be thorough. Spend time with family discuss with your teachers and parents and friends and share your knowlege to improve subjects, Write always points in a log book and read repeatedly everyday everthing say PCBMHE E K etc. Or professional course. Be thorough. Start from day one. If not also dont panic. Concentrate and jot down what your teachers teach so that you will concentrate on every sentence the teacher speaks till the end and it will have many references. You be quick. Dont think Negative.

I am 21 years old male, I can't do any particular work, because some things are disturbing me, so what can I do?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hello, welcome to lybrate I can understand your problem well and want to help you out of it. Its really troublesome when one could not concentrate in his/her work due to certain things going in mind, which you don't want at all. This if persisted for a long, can lead to development of psychological stress, which further increases the risk of developing behavioural problems such as depression, anxiety, aggression, memory disturbances, personality changes as well. Timely interventions can help prevent such issues from developing. Hence I would suggest you to discuss your current problems in detail with me privately, so that you could be assess properly and if any intervention required can be instated as early as possible. You can consult me

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, marital problem is something which most of the couple face these days. Do not worry, you love your child, then you have to sacrifice certain things for your child sake. I will suggest certain tips that you need to follow. First of all your problem is very simple to solve. First when verbal argument arises please leave that place and relax yourself outside say relative house, driving or a movie come back home after 2 or 3 hours. Do not take verbal comments seriously deep into you from your wife. Just let it go, let your wife scream, if it is more serious leave her alone go out and come after 2 to 3 hours. Secondly, as days go on buy what your wife likes, give her surprises, express your love through greeting, surprises and when you find her in a happy mood take her out say a restaurant and discuss and both of them come to an agreement to adjust and give up certain thing to make your life happy for both of you and to your child. I would say she would definitely adjust and accept your suggestions to lead an happy life. Do not tease or comment your wife. Try to praise her lot, even if it is wrong. Do not allow verbal argument turn into a quarrel, before that you leave your wife alone and make her understand that you love her also. She will also love you in turn. Best wishes msv.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear from an intimate relationship like love affair is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

What's the deference between stress and anxiety? Which one of these is very unpleasant?

General Physician,
What's the deference between stress and anxiety? Which one of these is very unpleasant?
Everyone experiences stress and anxiety at one time or another. The difference between them is that stress is a response to a threat in a situation. Anxiety is a reaction to the stress.

When such incidences happen. There comes a sudden shock to mind and inner feelings and bitter energy starts aroused. This leads to negativity inside and finally that negative energy tends to develop some pathological changes in body. So this all need to be stopped in beginning itself. And this can be better done by Homoeopathy

4 Logical Ways to Save Your Relationship When You’re Depressed

M.Sc - Psychotherapy

4 Logical Ways to Save Your Relationship When You’re Depressed
Ways to Save Your Relationship When You’re Depressed

The foremost thing that you can do to save your relationship is get your spouse treated for depression. When you are depressed, whether it is because of your relationship with your partner or some other reason, you must make joint efforts to save your relationship. Non depressed spouse has to take the lead. A relationship cannot go further only with the patience of one partner. Efforts and care of both the partners go hand in hand.

However, there are few things you can do even when you or your partner is depressed.

1. Communication: Don’t stop communicating with your partner. It’s very important to understand your partner’s viewpoint and to make him understand your viewpoint. Until, both of you share your thoughts and concerns; you will not be able to save the relationship.

2. Think about your commitment: When you are depressed, you might make your partner responsible for all the wrong things. You need to be wise. Don’t let one bad moment spoil your years of relationship. Think of the commitment you have made to your partner and then you might handle the situation in a more loving way.

3. Don’t leave your partner alone for longer time: After presenting your viewpoint, you must give your partner some time to digest everything. What is easy for you might be difficult for him and what is difficult for you might be easy for him? In such a case, you need to leave him alone for some time but do take care that this silence shouldn’t continue for a longer time.

4. Don’t play blame games: If you are depressed, you shouldn’t let your partner suffer from that. Do not strain the relationship any further by playing blame games. That will not help. When your spouse says something that seems negative try not to personalize it, even if it's directed at you. Attribute it to the state of depression.

While this can be a very difficult time for both you and your spouse, you can weather this storm with compassion and empathy.

Smoking is really injuries to health. How can we avoid smoking. Please suggest me any methods to quit smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course there will be. There are too many harmful effects because of smoking. But here are a few to ruminate up on with the intention of either making you stop or to never start again. It has more than 7000 chemical substances most of which are harmful. It affects your stamina, breathing, forms skin wrinkles; Bad for your heart, bad for bad cholesterol, it can lead to strokes, dental problems, eye problems, cancer, brain cell death, vascular problems, throat problems, voice difficulties, etc. The list is quite endless. It is so bad that there is an international battle to dissuade smoking. Each cigarette you smoke has an effect on your erectile capacity: the nicotine in the cigarette is a vasoconstrictor i.e. it narrows the blood vessels to constrict the blood flow. The erection of the penis is caused by an extra flow of blood to the penis along with a shut down valve that facilitates its engorgement. This action will be compromised. Your BP rises with every cigarette you smoke. But to me the biggest danger is that, in time, dependence and tolerance will develop so that you will want more cigarettes in order to have the same effect as when you started smoking with only one or two. Now, the bluff that we all went through when we were teens was this belief (really a denial) that, if we want, we can stop at any time we choose. That unfortunately does not work: it is a deceptive bluff. The fortunate thing about giving up smoking is that you can reverse most of the damage by giving up at any time: the sooner the better, however. 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. 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.

My in laws are always shouting and fighting. Shouting on my kids. I get depressed and angry. Please advise.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
If you are planning to stay with your in laws then it' s important to have open communication with them. Find out what is their reasons for fighting and tell them how it affects your children and you. They may or may not be able to understand you. As a parent it' s your responsibility to ensure that your children don' t undergo undue stress. You might want to keep them apart sometimes yet also let them develop their own relationship with each other. Some children have their own filters to filter out unwanted experiences while others get very much impacted. For more details click on private chat if you are interested.

Sir, i'm an unmarried 35 years old wOman who jUST lost my father. I.M living with my mother and working part time. I have a schizophrenic brother who stays abroad. We are not able to cope up with the stress. Financially there is no problem but mentally stressed. Mom is taking. 25 mg petril at bedtime. I feel lonely and lost. Get tired easily. Can not sleep properly. I have a boyfriend who is caring but financially weak. I think a lot over very small issues. And sometimes blame myself for my situation. I.M worried about my future. Iv become less social. please advice.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Becoming less social is the main problem. You must realize that your present household situation is not going to change. Mother with an illness, brother with a mental illness these areas are to be constant. Two other areas which you can change is your marriage and your stress level. Once you accept the fact that the present scenario will change when you marry, your stress level will reduce. But this option could take time. Therefore, the alternative is to engage yourself in social circumstances, games, hobbies etc so that the" thinking" time is reduced to minimum. Take care.
