You will need therapy along with the medication. Please consult a counsellor, who will work with you and help you in modifying your thoughts and behaviour, so that you will have more control over your reactions. All the best.

My son is addicted to mobile phones game, clash of cans, he plays whole night and sleeps whole day. Doesn' t like food, don' t want to talk to any one. Doesn' t go to school. Last year he passed 10th. How can you help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

He is seriously addicted to these games and needs help to get out of this habit. There is nothing wrong with these modern gadgets and the tremendous uses they can be put in to. But to be completely absorbed in the activity without concern for food, sleep, studies and social contact is going beyond the limit. It is become both compulsive and obsessive. When giving him the mobile you should also have brought in some basic rules and conditions. If he failed to comply, you could easily confiscate the item. Now however he is much into it and will react with violence or non-compliance with refusal to study and go to college etc. Anyway, that is now spilt milk. Here is what you need to do: first, talk to him in a caring manner to dissuade him from this extensive use of the phone for games. Then, threaten to withdraw the mobile phone, if he doesn? t follow some timings, proper eating habits, going to school, and sleeping at night. If he complies, well and good. If not, threaten to stop payment for his mobile bills. If that does not work, then just take away the phone and give it to him at set times during the day, only. When I say? threaten, you must then act on that threat and actually do it. Then, you could completely confiscate the phone. Do not give him any pocket money either, as that will feed into the addiction: he can go and play at some computer caf?, though that might at least restrict the night usage. Another way is to subtly give him some chores for the family and take him away from the phone for brief moments. You could also send him to a relative in a remote place, if you have someone there, and take the phone away from him during that trip. The more aggressive way to go about it is to dip the phone in water and quietly put it back after wiping it and thus making it defunct. Sometimes, you will need to do it this way, unfortunately, to somehow get him to stop the habit. Waiting for him to initiate it may never happen. The last option is to wait for him to get to a stage where he develops finger injuries or other sleep and food deprivation problems that will force him to want to give up the habit. The wait could be for a long time, but we have to be patient. If at any point he acts violent or threatens violence, you must tell him that you will report him to the police. This is tough love, and needs this kind of approach to halt the progress of a disease that has become out of control.

I am having regular smoking and drinks habits. What is the effect on my body. How should I skip all the habits. Any treatment now to confirm the status of body now in 2015. Please advice if you can.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
One of the immediate concerns will be cirrhosis of the liver. The combination of smoking and drinking increases the risk many times. There is also the enlarged heart and weak heart beat after long duration of alcohol consumption. There is the danger of cancer of so many organs that it is too long to list all the problems. Here are just a few: Blocked arteries, loss of stamina, lung damage, skin damage, kidney, hepatitis B, eyes, teeth and gums, hair, etc. You can go for a complete medical and psychiatric evaluation. The problem is that even if you know the dangers you will not quit unless something dramatic happens.There is only one reason, and that is, that you have not reached your ?Rock bottom? so that you will be stopped right in your tracks! Before that happens you must, on a war footing, exercise restraint and stop the use of all these substances. Since you have probably tried and found it extremely difficult I suggest you do one of the following: It sounds like you are in an advanced stage of alcoholism and tobacco use and need admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help deal with this problem. There are no guarantees about stopping one?s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by yourself because you have become addicted to alcohol and tobacco and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that you can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you do not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. 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 take a 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. The 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 in particular and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Your children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father?s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems, and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with whoever else?s support you can get and act on it fast. If you are not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick you up, after you are completely drunk, and admit you by force. This will however, require the wife and family?s consent. Do not delay for any reason and stop fooling around with half decisions. This must be your last and final attempt and make it a successful one.

Hi lybrate-user, depression is not a serious problem, most individuals have depression from mild to severe. Depression can be solved depending upon individual's confidence and emotional balance. He can get rid of depression, poor sleeping habits and constant rumination due to some incident. First should bring him out from his own world, he should see, feel, perceive everything the way a normal person feels, perceives, sees. First find out what he likes the most, each and every individual has got an habit or an hobby that can become crazy, should make him addictive to such an habit like reading, watching or hobbies like swimming, gardening should praise or encourage them to perform such actions slowly trying to divert them. You can of course send them to gym or aerobics it is an good approach to bring out depression or remove depression within him. You allow him to outburst his depression by allowing him to cry, shout or scream aloud in a room, it is an other way to bring out depression away from him. Slowly he will heal as time goes on within an month or two months definitely. Suggest you make him follow these steps one by one slowly and make him occupied with good entertainment and then he will be fine. Hoping for good. Best wishes and regards,

I am in love with someone. He dont love me. Once we used to be best friend. Now we r not even in contact. I dnt feel good at all. I tried many ways to forget him but did not success.

Dear lybrate-user. Be in the middle. I mean neither love nor hate/forget. Subdue your ego and take initiatives to contact him whenever you feel you are deprived of him. Continue your friendship but not in depth. Focus on other areas of your life. You will find yourself Ok in course of time.

Dear , Anxiety and OCD are mental disorders and not mental diseases. Medicines alone cannot cure mental disorders. Mental disorders need brain re-programming. Psychotherapy, meditation, change in life style etc help you achieve brain reprogramming. Give me more details about your anxiety and OCD. Be as detailed as possible. Take care.

I have panic disorder I have irrational fear of something what can I do is this a problem?
Hello; thanks for the query. Simple answer is yes! you can definitely get a long lasting relief from panic disorder & frequent disabling panic attacks! for this to happen, a combined medications plus behavior therapy (also known as cbt in psychiatric lingo) approach will have to be employed. You are currently taking tryptomer for depression? who diagnosed you as depression or panic disorder? have you achieved any relief with tryptomer? I would like to know your current troubling symptoms in detail & I would also like to suggest a few medicine changes & simple relaxation techniques as a start up to behavior therapy treatment. Revert back with aforementioned information so that I can help you. Good luck.

Actually alcohol is acidic in nature and acids are gastric irritants-so not always but most of the time taking alcoholic things frequently can upset our gastric system and from here other problems starts, so be careful while eating alcoholic things.

You can try talking to her about what is bothering her. Make her feel good about herself- encourage her to do things that she is good at. Help her be distracted from her negative thoughts, by keeping her busy in positive activities. At times she may find herself incapable of doing something, help her learn those skills. As a friend this is the support you can provide , rest she will have to work on her own thoughts and want & try to come out of her sad state.
